Alexa Chung Will Make You Love These Shoes Again

Leave it to Alexa Chung to inspire major outfit envy with the simplest off-duty ensemble. The style star is leaning in to summer style and rocking an unexpected shoe trend: the espadrille wedge. While sneakers and ballet flats seem to be the hit styles of 2016, Chung's solid footwear choice is a reminder that while trends come and go, these simple shoes will always be a summer staple. 

While out running errands in NYC, Alexa opted for a pair of white wedge espadrilles with an ankle tie. The lightweight shoes are a solid choice for keeping feet cool when the temperatures rise. And while Alexa's choice of high-waisted jeans, a button-down, and a simple tote were ideal for daytime, swap the look for a breezy summer dress and you've got the ideal outfit for rooftop drinks somewhere wonderful.
