Vazquez visited TODAY Thursday to show great ways to rock these three trends well into the fall.

1. Espadrille sneakers

Espadrilles say summer fun while a lace-up athletic shoe adds convenience and comfort. Meanwhile, the platform adds a little lift while the sneaker sole keeps the vibe laid back — it's the perfect mix! With embroidery, metallic accents and a ton of colors, there are dozens of great ways to try these out.
