How to Wear Birkenstock Sandals

The Summer That Birkenstocks Came Back

View in slideshow The Summer That Birkenstocks Came Back

We were puzzled at first, uncertain whether it would even take off. But the Birkenstock trend did indeed resurface. And our feelings about the sandals of yesteryear have changed over the course of the Summer. Initially, we questioned how they'd work with flouncy miniskirts or cutoffs, suspecting they might be too casual or too . . . flat. Even our nonfashion friends were calling us with the regular, "Seriously? Can I actually wear my Birks again?!"

But once sliders started popping up on the feet of our favorite street style stars, we couldn't argue with their superchic quality. In fact, we grew obsessed with the shoes. We kept tabs on all the newest iterations; became reobsessed with similar styles, like Tevas; and looked to our favorite bloggers for outfit inspiration. Yes, the thick slip-ons have become our go-to over the course of the past few months. And we'll be sad to take them off. That's why we're paying homage to the redeveloped trend with a roundup of our favorite slider sandal looks. That way, if it comes time to pull them out again once the weather warms, we'll know just what to do.
