Summer 2023 Fashion Trends with Viscata Summer Espadrilles

Gone are the days when summer only lasted a few months. These days, the warmer weather seems to be extending its reach into spring and autumn and the sun seems to shine longer and brighter. Where you live is no longer a barrier to sunseekers who are now able to reach exotic destinations that they couldn’t have dreamed of only 30 years ago. With the advent of more affordable flights, package tourism and a greater sense of adventure, exotic locations and seeking sun all year round have become art forms in their own right. The endless summer is here, you just have to find it.

Which is why we don’t panic here at Viscata. We know our summer slip-on espadrilles are always in style somewhere.

Here’s our guide to the best shoes for hot weather and our summer wardrobe essentials.

Are espadrilles only for summer?

Well here’s a question that’s been going around forever. And we say a big fat NO. There was a time when we were more constrained by tradition. Summer, we were told, started on Memorial Day when the swimming pools opened. We were told it ended in September. And we were also told never to wear white after Labor Day. We think that’s all nonsense. The old rules are no longer appropriate. Summer is always only a short journey away. And there’s as much sun to be had in the fall and winter as there is in the summer. From the beaches of Mexico to the temples of Thailand and from the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean to the swish bars and restaurants of Miami. You just have to get out there and find it.
