Ashley Olsen has worn them. Miley Cyrus has been seen in them. Even, Miranda Kerr was spotted out and about, in arguably, summer’s best flat shoe: Birkenstocks. Birkenstocks are a great sandal to keep in your shoe collection because they are not only super easy to slide on but they provide great cushioning for those long summer walks. Plus, it’s a cinch to make these sandals look effortlessly cool.

This Fashionista is comfortably taking on her summer course load with her black leather Birkenstocks. What I love about her look is that she allows the simplicity of her sandals shine by pairing them with classic summer essentials. Her pocket T-shirt is giving us some Saved by the Bell vibes with its bright color-block design.  While her distressed denim shorts help contribute to her laid back outfit.

As with any perfect summer look, this Fashionista completes her look with pretty nail polish in a  baby blue shade and a round pair of sunglasses. Comfortability and coolness? I think this ensemble is definitely a win-win for some fun days under the sun!

How To: To try this look, start by choosing your Birkenstocks. Pair your sandals with your favorite pair of distressed jean shorts. To mirror the simplicity of this Fashionista’s look, your shorts should match your sandals. So if you happen to have white Birkenstocks, opt for white shorts. This will help the sandal stand out more. Last but not least, find a pocket T-shirt with some color—its summer after all. The more color, the better. And voila! You now have your go-to laid back look for this season.
