I love holidays... snoozes by the pool, fruit and coffee for breakfast, the sound of lapping waves and the excuse to completely and utterly relax. Everything slows down about ten notches, and it allows for you to do things that you could never do at home, like sleep for the best part of a sunny afternoon, and when it comes to fashion it allows you to wear a completely different wardrobe. For some people it's all about wearing the best bikinis or dressing up for cocktails but for me its all about being as casual as possible. And one thing that looks out of place anywhere but on holiday are Espadrills - the perfect accompaniment to any chill out holiday and these laid back shoes are best worn in the sun. Something about their canvas fabric and jute sole makes them go with everything when on holiday and the wedged version oozes by the sea glamour. Originally from the Pyrenees, espadrills have now gone global and people from South America to Bali is channelling the discreet but chic shoe. Forever in fashion and great when your dashing, I've picked some of my faves below.
The idea for this fab brand started with an American traveller called Blake who discovered that a lot of kids in Argentina had no shoes to protect their feet so he created TOMS, and with every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need. They have a great range of colours and patterns to choose from and are easily purchased online. www.toms.com
Ok, so not strictly espadrills, well, actually not espadrills at all - these are actually called alpargatas, but they have the same holiday vibe about them and their soft canvas upper, cotton lining and cushioned leather insole make them impossibly comfortable. Inspired by Argentinian gauchos and made in Argentina, but brought to you by a British guy, Paez is committed to making sure its employees are as healthy and happy as possible. www.paezshoes.com
Priding themselves on five centuries of tradition, Soludos have created a trendy shoe that is perfect for beachside living. Their website is as cool as the shoes that they sell, with achingly chilled beach shots and an equally relaxed holiday soundtrack. Soludos shoes are made from a natural jute sole and breathable cotton upper, and the warning that these shoes are not for working out but for chilling out says it all. www.soludos.com
