How To Wear Birkenstocks

I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but I'm obsessed with Birkenstocks. Regardless of how much I've heckled them over the years — and despite the fact that I think "Travis Birkenstock, 38 tardies, by far the most tardies in the class" every time I hear that word — I want a pair and in a bad way. I'm not sure what it is about ugly shoes these days (aside from the comfort factor, obvi), but I for one am not complaining. So if you find yourself crushing on a pair of Birks too (come on, who are you kidding?), here are two ways to work them into your look.

Nothing embodies the laid back cool of Birkenstocks quite like boyfriend jeans, chambray shirts and slouchy sweaters (am I right?), so if you're looking for an surefire way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe, then look no further. And although skirts, dresses and all things girlie are still totally on the table, I say why mess with a good thing? xx

  1. Thanks for this! I found a cute pair of Birkenstocks in Las Vegas last year but I wasn't sure if I really wanted to buy them, but I knew I wanted to own a pair because I've heard they're so comfortable. Now I'm confident I can 'rock' this look! I'll be reblogging this on my blog if you don't mind :)

  2. This is a great post! I have birkenstocks from when I was in highschool and I have yet to wear them again but I did break them out of storage. Sort of scared to actually wear them!

  3. There are soooo many styles and colourful patterns these days. Fun to wear; people are surprised they're Birkis; comfortable. Are you surprised I have 6 pairs!! (no, I didn't get paid to say this!)
    Bring on summer and painted toenails!
