One of today’s leading trends when it comes to footwear, that made a huge comeback are the clogs. In structural shapes and many new different ideas attached to them, we’ve spotted on the runway and lately even on the street, different styles that can get combined with the clog’s architectural appearance. Well it’s all good until you find yourself buying them and not knowing how to wear them. But remember, you love them, you need them, you get them, so start learning how-to wear them too.

If you’re a fan of hippie ages when everything was about freedom, even the styles, than you’ll be soon a fan of this trend that’s for sure. When it comes too footwear, starting from the first pair of Converse sneakers as a child, going for the first pair of black leather pumps as a teenager and after for the sexy red hot one as a 20 years old single gal, you start developing a style when it comes to shoes, and that’s just the beginning. Well let’s just say we’ve got all the must-haves already, what do we need now? It’s easy. After the must-have classics, come the must-have trends.
We already know that the ’80s are taking the world when it comes to fashion, right? Even if some think that those ages were the worst in the fashion chapter how come we still bring it back? Simple. Designers have the ability to bring out beauty from ugliness and by reinventing already used trends they show their skill to adapt vintage to modern. We’ve seen vintage, bohemian, hippie in several styles, taken from the floral print to the double denim or leather all the way. We’ve seen new styles, yet we’ve seen them before.
Since the summer is already here, what better way to style it up then with a new pair of shoes? Clogs are perfect for this season. They are structural, with the bottom part made of wood to give you more comfort while the top part comes in different styles but mostly leather, in any color or even prints. In a hot day of summer, no outfit is more practical if you pull it off with these shoes. They stand out by themselves so matching them is not a hard thing to do.
1. Less is more.
We hear people say that a lot, especially when it comes to fashion but do we take it seriously? How many times haven’t we spotted on the streets over-styled girls with way too many accessories and unnecessary items on them? Well it’s time to change that. Every girl what to stand out, but sometimes we don’t even need to put so much effort into it. That’s why the simplest way to pull off clogs it’s the easy way. Take a pair of skinny jeans, a plain large shirt, maybe with little details on top or even some floral print and a bag to complete your look. Usually you’d say that this is a boring outfit, but with clogs you already make a big statement so you don’t need much more. Also if you don’t want jeans to your outfit, a dress makes it too. It can be short and pretty looking, as simple as possible and you’re good to go.
2. More is good.
For you there’s no easy wear in styling. Nothing less is enough, because you want more. Well here’s a tip to not over-style it yet to be enough. Take on a short casual dress, a pair of over-knee socks, a short denim jacket and a maxi clutch. Don’t use many accessories, maybe a small ring or a long easy necklace, but no bracelets. If you want to wear jeans, then take a pair of boyfriend ripped off jeans, lift them up a little, a plain shirt underneath, a short blazer and a maxi bag. Use some color to spice if up a little bit.
