The Clog Trend

29 Jun

I clearly remember my first pair of clogs. I had wanted them for ages and when I finally got them I had a whole order of clothes to pair them with. I wore them through blisters and on to callouses. I continued to wear them even though they made me trip all the time. That was 1993.

These days I’m not as certain about clogs, in part because you have to be careful which kinds you buy in order to not spend weeks wearing them in, and also because there are just so many damn ugly styles out there. (Versions so ugly they take a perfectly cute outfit and ruin it with troll feet.) That said, when they are done right, they can be damn adorable (and comfortable) and recent styles tend to be much more creative than those of the 90s!

Here are seven styles I’m digging…

Summer Style

One of my absolute favorite types of outfits to wear is a breezy dress with flat sandals and a cross-body bag. Easy, comfortable and with a million opportunities for variation. I love this dress by Joie because the silhouette is forgiving yet sexy and paired with clogs it is on trend yet natural, not at all as if you’re trying too hard. I can see the whole outfit paired with a topknot.
