Every time I open my closet, scan my eyes down to the shoe section, I have to ask myself how to wear Chanel espadrilles. Because these Chanel espadrilles have been sitting in my closet for two years. And I have no idea what to do with them.
My sister asked for them for Christmas in 2014. I got on the waitlist at the Chanel store in Toronto and managed to get her a pair. A month later, my sister decided that Chanel espadrilles weren’t for her. This has happened before, with the Céline Audrey sunglasses. I’m a lucky sister, I know.
And even luckier? The Chanel espadrilles were a half size too big for her. Which meant, they moderately fit me! The Chanel espadrilles sizing is weird. Because these espadrilles are made from canvas they stretch. So they’re a size 38, but I normally take a 39 in Chanel ballet flats. Do note, that they are a bit tight in 38, but they’re workable.
I hate seeing things go to waste. Food, drinks, makeup, candles, shoes… So now, how to wear Chanel espadrilles? They’re a summer fashion style blog staple after all. And I like to think this is one too…
My favorite way is on the left. With black torn denim shorts (One Teaspoon), a khaki T by Alexander Wang t-shirt dress tucked in, and a Kate Moss x Longchamp Glastonbury bag. You gotta do what you can to offset the high-maintenance feeling behind these espadrilles. Torn denim is perfect for that.
Here are a few more Chanel espadrille outfits that I’ve come up with:
I think I’m slowly making these Chanel espadrilles work and solving that question of how to wear Chanel espadrilles…
