Spanish adjectives that end in -e or -a form their plural by adding an -s.
This applies to both the masculine and feminine plural form because these adjectives are invariable: they remain the same in their masculine and feminine forms. Have a look and listen to these examples:
Carolina lleva unos zapatos elegantes.Carolina is wearing elegant shoes.
Carolina lleva unas gafas elegantes.Carolina is wearing elegant glasses.
