Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and there is no draught of ugly shoes in the fashion world. Can you think of any footwear uglier than Uggs? Who decided that clogs were acceptable outside of Amsterdam? Crocs, ahem! The list goes on and on. This season, the fashion set is focusing on Birkenstocks.
Birks have captured the love of fashionistas everywhere. It’s up to you to decide if this is a trend you want to walk in but we promise to not pass any judgement. (Well, we can only promise to try.) Top designers such as Celine, Stuart Weitzman, Givenchy, Dior and Isabel Marant all have designed their take on this hippe-dippie shoe. (You can click here to see a full collection of designer Birkenstock-style shoes.)
Putting your Birkenstocks into action is up to you but we’ve seen the style run the full span of versatile. From sporty, casual to a night-out ensemble, it’s up to you to make them work. One suggestion is to style them with clean minimal lines, try them with skinny jeans and a layered top or contrast of the clunky shoe and a feminine dress and a moto jacket. Alternatively, you can always opt out. What do you think?
