30 Seconds of Style: Why Did Alia Shawkat, Will. i. am., and Betsey Johnson Wear Espadrilles Wrong?

What do Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat, Will. i. am., and Betsey Johnson all have in common? Their unabashed love for espadrilles, that’s what! Now that summer is approaching fast, the stars have been sporting the summer footwear staple in all of its glory, whether in the shape of wedges or flats.

The only problem? They somehow managed to style them all wrong! We know, how dare they! Espadrilles are designed with lightweight fabrics and are made to be breathable. Therefore, pairing them with socks (à la Will.i.am) or with too many busy layers like Alia and Betsey is not the best way to pull them off.

Instead, they should have taken a page out of Jennifer Aniston, Ashley Tisdale, and Naomi Watt’s books of style. Not only do these ladies pair their espadrilles with simple summer outfits complete with breezy fabrics, but they keep the look playful.

Jennifer dress up the wedges with fun accessories like a fedora while Naomi ties up her espadrilles with a little bow embellishment along the ankle, and Ashley sports her toe-capped Chanel flats with mash-up of prints. Now that says summer!
