Trend Report Tuesday- Birkenstock

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.

Here are some great places to find Birkenstocks and even some knock off brands for the people who don’t want to pay as much:

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

One of my favorite prints is floral. I love flowers so it’s really fun to wear floral prints. Floral goes with pretty much anything. You can pair it with a pair of flip flops, denim and some cute sunglasses. I especially love floral dresses. And it usually looks good with a brown leather braided belt.
My personal favorite way to wear floral is a floral dress with a brown leather belt and a jean jacket with a pair of fun bangles and a pair of Vans. Whether the floral print is big or very small, it is always a spring thing. Here’s some ideas about floral.
