For a long time they had disappeared from the scene, but last year Queen Letizia brought them back: summer shoes with raffia and wedge heels! At an appointment in Madrid, the Spanish queen now ushered in the next round for the casual-chic wedges trend. Tikbow checks out what makes the royal darlings so special and how best to wear them.
Letizia decided for an appearance in the Spanish capital for a summery combination of a white culotte and patterned blouse with XXL flügelärmeln of Psophía. She combined it with her favorite shoes for hot summer days: bright wedges in espadrilles look. This time she chose white models with straps from Macarena Shoes (approx. 60 euros) – Letizia might have the pretty shoes in her closet in countless versions.
Letizia likes raffia on her feet;
We remember: Already last summer Letizia wore summery-chic shoes with wedge heels with her white suit, at that time it was the Mint&Rose "Sardinia"-models (approx. 120 euros).. And also on vacation in Mallorca in 2019, she was spotted several times with such espadrille wedges from different labels. No question, the shoes with the wedge heel are for Künigin Letizia the fashion must-have for the summer.
Kate also likes Letizia’s favorite shoes
But it’s not just Letizia, Duchess Kate also loves the elegant espadrille look. Thus, among other things, the mother of three relied on minimally different models than her Spanish colleague at the "Chelsea Flower Show" 2019. Kate’s favorites from the Spanish brand Castañer (about 135 euros) were a little bräunlicher than Letizia’s wedges, but looked them to the confusion ähnlich. But why is the shoe, so simple in itself, so popular with the royal ladies?
Why always espadrille wedges?
Letizia’s favorite shoes are the perfect fashion compromise between elegant pumps and cozy sandals. The bast look makes them look casual and summery at the same time, but with their leather inserts, heel and ankle strap they are still feminine and elegant enough for official events. And thanks to the full-length heel, the trendy wedges are not only stylish, but also comfortable – perfect for appointments where standing for long periods is the order of the day.
The best thing: The wedges go with almost everything. With the classic jeans look, they look elegant and make the legs look longer. But the shoes actually look best the way Letizia and Kate prefer to wear them: in combination with a sultry summer dress, which looks a bit more casual but still remains chic. The royal ladies just know how it’s done!
