STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: It's All About The Birkenstocks

April 29th, 2015 at 2:10am

It’s no secret that Birkenstocks have officially made their comeback in the fashion world. These chunky sandals have been seen everywhere from the runway to your hippie professor who’s been wearing his Birkenstocks even before they were in style. However, whether you’re a Birkenstock native or a Birkenstock novice, there are a million ways to style these comfy and chunky shoes.

First of all, you have to decide what look you’re going for to determine what style shoe you get. Do you want to give off a boho vibe? If so, I’d go with either a dark leather sandal or a tan suede sandal. If you’re looking for a more modern look, try out a metallic or neon pair. And, of course, if you’re looking for an everyday shoe, you can never go wrong with black. Now, once you’ve picked your style of shoe, you can build an outfit around it. The boho style shoe would look great with a maxi skirt or some distressed denim shorts and a crop top. The modern and trendy style shoe would look great with some harem pants or some high-waisted shorts and a structured top. Because of the thousands of ways to wear Birkenstocks, you can see why this trend is so popular and appealing.

This Fashionista executed the Birkenstock trend perfectly. She chose to wear her chunky sandals in a classic, simple way. Her chambray button-down with her light-wash denim shorts correlate so well with her tan sandals and brown bag. This look is perfect for spring and comfortable enough to wear anywhere.
