Castañer: Evolution of the Espadrille

Flip flops and slip-on sneakers aside, it’s all about espadrilles when it comes to quintessential spring footwear. The iconic style has been a warm-weather fixture for nearly a century, tracing back to Spain’s Luis Castañer and cousin Tomàs Serra, who opened up shop for their family’s namesake brand in 1927. Today, Castañer’s legacy comes full circle with a full-price capsule collection of must-have wedges and flats, available exclusively on Gilt. Take a look back at the signature shoe’s historic highlights, and score a covetable pair for yourself from our can’t-miss sale, starting tonight at 9pm EST.

Check out each of the must-haves below and shop them all now for a rotating wardrobe of the best lingerie basics.

Pretty Little Racerback Push-Up Bra

It’s the perfect piece for all of those sporty-chic styles we’re loving for spring — a racerback for your racerback, naturally. And in true Blush fashion, it’s outfitted with a hint of lace embroidery and push-up padding for an extra feminine boost.

Pretty Little Contour Bra

Meet your new best friend: molded cups and supportive underwires unite in the basic bra you need for T-shirt and silk blouse season. The classic shape provides an enviably smooth silhouette so you’ll look sleek and wrinkle-free no matter what.

Pretty Little Longline Strapless Bra
The ultimate multi-tasker, this versatile piece (and its removable, adjustable straps) is like four bras in one, tackling strapless evening silhouettes, sexy one-shoulder tops, and more.

Pretty Little Hipster
Looking for a little more coverage? This wear-everywhere brief is an absolute go-to for your off-duty look: The signature microfiber knit is a super-soft companion for weekend jeans, and the modern hipster shape is ready for your favorite low-rises.

Pretty Little Thong
Comfort and sex appeal don’t have to be mutually exclusive. This easy thong delivers on both with a wearable microfiber knit you’ll feel great in all day, and a revealing cut that kicks panty lines to the curb.

Jackie O’s Favorite Sandal: The Jack Rogers Navajo

Photo c/o Deux Chicago

Long before the world was smitten with Michelle Obama’s every style move, Jackie Kennedy established the White House as a national beacon of chic. And while she’s most known for triple-strand pearls, pillbox hats, and all things Oleg Cassini, her casual, warm-weather wardrobe is just as worthy of emulating. Her go-to shoe? Jack Rogers’ Navajo Sandal, which she fell for on one of countless trips to Capri. And there’s no Italian holiday required to get the same style — the colorful, whip-stitched signature sandals are available on Gilt today and can help you accessorize like American royalty this spring.
