So Birkenstocks are back in style this summer and I’m hoping they stay around for a while because they are seriously the most comfortable shoe ever created. I had a pair forever ago (like circa 2003) and then when I started seeing them in fashion posts and in style ideas on Pinterest I was kicking myself for giving them away to Goodwill. I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair this summer and my awesome husband surprised me with an early birthday present this weekend – a pair of classic brown Birks sandals!
Since they are kind of a clunky shoe and I don’t want to look like Dwight Schrute, I’ve been looking for some cute ways to style them. Overall, I think the key is dressing down and going for basic outfits in neutral colors. If your outfit has a lot of color and details and then you add your Birks, there will be too much going on and no balance to your outfit.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to style this summer’s most comfortable shoe:
- with cropped pants
- with a casual dress
- with skinnies (first pic in slideshow)
- with shorts (scroll down half way on the page)
What’s your opinion of the Birkenstock trend?
