The Birkenstocks are back from the past! I wasn’t actually alive during the last trend but I am now. When I first saw people at my school wearing these shoes, I thought they weren’t that cute with their nature-looking style. I totally thought this trend wouldn’t spread because the shoes are just not that cute, but it turns out people LOVE them. It’s like every single girl at my school wears them. Birkenstocks have definitely grown on me but I just haven’t had the time to go out and by myself a pair.
The thing I really like about these shoes are that they’re very versatile. They work with both socks and no socks. They’re perfect for a casual summer day with a simple t-shirt and jean shorts. They add a more casual and trendy look to the outfit. Birkenstocks are also great for the fall. The most famous way at my school to wear Birkenstocks is with a thick pair of wool socks. Wool socks are what give the Birkenstocks that nature vibe. Of course, you can wear just regular ankle socks or some funky polka dot socks. That’s what makes these shoes so versatile. The other thing I love about these shoes is the type of vibe they give off. They’re more suited for a bohemian look which I am totally into this year. They look great with a pair of ripped up jeans and a floral lace kimono or even a simple maxi dress.
