    The classic espadrille has long been our go-to summer shoe. Comfortable and versatile, they never go out of style and this season there are more styles to choose than ever before.

    For Spring/Summer 2016, designers and high street stores have updated the seasonal staple with stripes, lace, studs and florals. There?s bright pink, classic black and even on some on-point metallics. Put simply, the choice is endless.

    So to make your holiday packing a little easier, we?ve checked out all the new season styles and rounded up the 30 best pairs which will suit any kind of occasion and budget.

    This seasons sporty, lace-up shoe-styles coming from the likes of Whistles and Alexander Wang are ideal for the weekend while luxed-up pairs by Saint Laurent, Valentino and ASOS are the ones to slip on for long summer evenings.

    One of the most versatile pairs of the season comes in denim courtesy of Stella McCartney. When not wearing them with floaty dresses on the beach, we?ll be taking our cue from the stylish off-duty models and work them into our weekend wardrobe with skinny jeans and linen shirts.

    While Zara and Dolce & Gabbana have caught our eye with their on-trend styles, it?s the espadrille brand Soludos which has topped our new season wish list. Affordable and versatile, the summer-appropriate prints and embroidery are just what our warm weather wardrobes are calling out for.

    They?re the kind of shoes you?ll take great joy in wearing ?which is exactly the beauty of a great pair of espadrilles. A true chameleon in the world of footwear, they can be flat or wedged, coloured or plain, ribboned or buckled, and we love them all the more for the versatility.

    They’re easy to wear all day long, are the epitome of casual summer dressing and should always have a home in your holiday wardrobe.
