STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: '90s Grunge Sandals

We’ve seen a lot of ’90s trends make a comeback in fashion these past two years and it isn’t going away anytime soon. From chokers to floral skater dresses to sporting two or more mini buns—history is having a lot of fun repeating itself.

When I saw this Fashionista’s outfit, all I could think of was ’90s grunge. She had the tousled hair, the crop top exposing her belly ring, the mini purse and, most importantly, she had the black, chunky sandals.

These sandals were a staple in the ’90s. The signature look is black, chunky, wide straps, and elevated in some way. The boot version of these shoes became huge in the fall with the signature Dr. Martens boots, so we already had a clue of what was around the corner. These black chunky shoes are almost standard for fashion bloggers like Luanna P. and have been spotted on celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens. Just check out what Urban Outfitters is stocked with this summer.

What makes it stand out is how quirky they tend to look in an outfit. It almost seems like it’s eating your feet. But that’s also what I love about this style of shoes. The style will always add something unorthodox to your outfit, but the classic black color brings in enough camouflage that it can still go with almost anything.
