Queen Letizia and Pippa Middleton can't stop wearing espadrilles‚ but can we really blame them? The summery, French-girl chic shoes were predicted to be the number one footwear trend everyone would own this summer by DSW's fashion trend director, and the past few months have proven this to be very true—they really are everywhere. One quick look at some of the most stylish warm-weather ensembles worn by celebs and royalty alike, and one thing becomes very clear: An outfit that's grounded by a pair of wedged (or flat) espadrilles is an instant wardrobe win. Just take a peek at Queen Letizia's perfect summer ensemble she was just photographed wearing in Majorca.
For the Spanish royal family's summer portrait, Queen Letizia wore a super-chic eyelet dress by one of her favorite fashion brands—Hugo Boss, a name she's worn time and time again—along with a pair of neutral-hued $140 espadrilles from Spanish label Mint & Rose. Her footwear of choice, in addition to adding a summery element, also offered a leg-lengthening finish. Simple but chic, the Queen's two-piece outfit is a serious lesson in simple summer outfits that can be worn year after year. Now read on to see and shop the $140 espadrilles.
