When the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, you know it’s time to find a suitable shoe for every summer occasion. Espadrille wedges offer an ideal way to beat the heat while looking fabulous—they combine the comfort of your favorite pair of espadrilles with the stylish flair of a wedge heel.  

But what makes up the perfect espadrille wedges ready summer outfit? 

In this guide, we’ll explore four wedge espadrille styling possibilities for your summer outfit ideas to ensure summer looks that will have you shining brighter than the sun. 

#1 Dress Up for a Night Out

When the weather’s warm, you don’t have to rely on a statement jacket or scarf to make your outfit stand out. Instead, choose a pair of espadrille wedges to complement a flowy skirt or summer dress. Espadrilles are one of the best shoe styles to wear with sundresses this summer. 

Undoubtedly a summer staple, an espadrille look can be customized for many evening occasions: 

  • Girls’ Night Out – Everyone needs some quality time with their gal pals. Try an espadrille wedge heel with your favorite short skirt or bodycon dress to keep it fun and flirty.
  • Date Night – A playful pair of espadrille wedges can be the perfect way to elevate a summer date night look. Try them with a feminine wrap dress or floral-patterned skirt for some feminine flair.
  • Weddings – Summertime means wedding season. Whether in a chapel, on a beach, or on the dance floor, you can create an effortlessly chic outfit by pairing your espadrille wedges with an A-line maxi dress or a silky slip summer dress.

When it comes to summer evening events, skirts and dresses are perfect for twirling the night away. With espadrille wedges as your main accessory, there’s no need to sacrifice style for comfort. Go ahead and keep on twirling.

#2 Bring the Party to the Pool

Good news—summertime means pool parties are in season. So are espadrille mule wedges. With no strap, these shoes are ideal for slipping on and off at the poolside, allowing you to switch between lounging and swimming with ease. 

To round out your poolside look, consider adding some of the following:

  • A lacy bathing suit coverup 
  • An ankle bracelet
  • A bright nail polish (for all the open-toe wedge fans)
  • A wide-brimmed hat
  • A stylish pair of sunglasses

Pool party fashion is all about stylish functionality. With espadrille wedges, you can show off your flair and feel comfy at the same time.

#3 Get Down to Business

We can’t always be on summer vacation, but going to work doesn’t mean you have to leave your fashion sense at home. Here are a few tricks to highlight your espadrille wedges and make a statement with your office ensemble:

  • Match your accessories – Match your shoes with your favorite blazer, statement necklace, purse, or lipstick for a professional and put-together look.
  • Try cropped pants – With all the style espadrille wedges offer, you might as well show them off. Cropped pants are a perfect way to showcase your superb taste in shoes and business casual outfit style. A pair of slim cropped pants offer a sophisticated look, but you can also opt for your favorite pair of cropped wide-leg pants for a chic summer vibe.
  • Add a pop of color – If your typical office attire includes neutral colors, an espadrille shoe could provide an appropriate pop of color to add some flair to your workplace fashion. For an added touch of playfulness, try contrasting your colorful espadrille wedges with another bright color, such as a jewel-toned blouse or earrings. 

Whether you’re at a desk or constantly on the go, let your personality shine through with a comfortable wedge espadrille to support you throughout the day.
