espadrille

One of the biggest trends in summer footwear is the espadrille, a shoe or sandal that has a jute sole. They can come in the form of a wedge or a flat, so whether you want some height or comfortable casualness, the espadrille won't let you down. Here are five pairs under $50! Rampage Bernadine, Piperlime ($49, pictured). As a 5'3" lady, I always appreciate the vertical assistance of a wedge. This pair has a 3" heel, with a 1" inch platform.

Keds Champion Jute Slip On, Zappos ($45). These multi-striped kicks will add some color to your summer uniform of cut-off shorts and a tank.

Mossimo Striped Espadrille, Target ($15). Ah, Target -- the bastion of affordable fashion! Red and white striped flats will complement a nautical-themed ensemble quite swimmingly.

Talea, Nine West ($41.40, sale). Let these t-strapped sandals with oversized gem accents add a bit of magical mystery to your feet.

Rebels Tangle Espadrille Wedge, Delia*s ($44.50, sale). Feminine and sweet, these low-heeled wedges will look flirty with your arsenal of summer dresses.
