The Birkenstock is back, in case you hadn’t heard. In fact, all practical flats are huge right now. Blame Celine’s pool slides for kicking off the ugly sandal trend, but while we may have been skeptical to start with, all it took was some street-style inspo from our very own Look What I’m Wearing ladies. Oh, and some designer doppelgangers to tempt us.
Emma Hill has clearly been swotting up on Look’s favourite summer trends, as we clocked her rocking Dune’s homage to Isabel Marant’s latest ‘It’ shoe featured recently in the mag. Popping some print with her Dorothy Perkins tee, Emma keeps the rest of her look neutral with a Forever 21 blazer, Asos perforated tote and H&M leather shorts.
Rebecca Price also chose H&M’s leathers, pairing hers with classic Birkenstocks. Her Mango shirt is on the perfect side of slouchy to keep her tailoring effortless and summer-ready, much like Angharad’s New Look T-shirt dress and Zara coat, with Asos sandals. Top fashion marks all round.
While these pedi-friendly beauties work with your rolled up jeans for a casual vibe, we love what they can do for tailored separates. Shorts in luxurious fabrics are perfect with everything from structured shirts to tees, while these sandals will give even your oldest, most trusty summer dress a fashion update.
