You can take the girl out of the vacation, but you can’t take the vacation out of the girl (it goes something like that, right?) Despite all of our efforts to be on a perpetual tropical getaway, little things like paying our rent and general adulting tend to get in the way. The workaround this spring is wearing pieces that make you feel like you’re in paradise, even if you are, in fact, sitting at your desk. These items can range from Hawaiian shirts and seashell necklaces all the way to today’s subject: woven footwear.
Whether it’s a pair of raffia platforms or braided leather mules, there’s something about woven footwear that feels so appropriate for summer. The pop of texture always pairs well with the season’s breezy separates like linen dresses and cotton tops, and because the textiles are interwoven it gives the whole aesthetic an artisanal appeal that translates to numerous scenarios.
