This Summer Footwear Trend Comes With The Meghan Markle Seal of Approval

Your feet will thank you.

A summer holiday staple.

Are we the only ones who struggle with any footwear fancier than flip flops when the hot weather shows up? Well, if you're like us (solidarity), then it's time to look at the royal family as unsurprisngly, it's the Duchess of Sussex - and Cambridge, for that matter - who has all the answers. 

Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have solved the conundrum of smart, comfortable shoes to wear in the heat. Enter wedged espadrilles.

Not familiar with the particular style? Well,traditionally, it features a wedged sole designed from a rope-like material. They also usually have a tie closure that you can lace up around your ankles for an eye-catching effect. 

Not only a hit with the royals, fashion girls love the shoes, and the style has become a regular part of their summertime uniform. Just check Instagram.

The shoes are versatile, so chic, and actually very comfortable, too. 

While there are a whole host of designers and high street stores are unveiling new takes on the traditional espadrilles by changing up the sole and silhouette, there's one particular style that the neither Meghan or Kate can stray from. 

Meghan may be known for her designer wardrobe, but the Duchess of Sussex's footwear from renowned Spanish brand Castañer is surprisingly affordable for an investment piece that's ideal for your next beach getaway, garden party or a glam walk to work. (trust me, they're THAT comfortable.)

The Carina 60 canvas wedge espadrilles are available at Net-a-Porter starting at €90 and come in black (Meghan's favouirte), as well as beige (worn twice by Kate), and other wearable colours like red and blush pink. 

Take a cue from Meghan and wear with floaty dresses or opt for cropped jeans ála the fashion pack and voila - a must-have for your summer capsule wardrobe. 

Naturally, the heeled wedges sell out every summer so you'll want to hurry if you're thinking of getting your hands on a pair.
