The ugly-pretty shoe trend has been around for the last few seasons in a variety of iterations, from clunky sandals to rubber platforms. But it seems like we’ve hit the apex of this street style phenomenon, as Crocs are now the mark of an It girl. It’s true—cool girls everywhere are incorporating the utilitarian silhouette into their wardrobes and giving them a fresh twist by styling them with elevated modern pieces.
Lesley Murphy of The Road Les Traveled and Julia Dzafic of Lemon Stripes are two of these women. Murphy (who you may recognize as a former reality television star) is a travel neophyte who uses her experiences everywhere from Patagonia to Thailand to Argentina to dictate her sophisticated bohemian style. On the other hand, Dzafic, a Connecticut resident with expertise in cooking, home décor, and fashion is known for her clean, preppy approach. Below, Murphy and Dzafic #RockWhiteCrocs in their own unique ways that will convince you that Crocs are back and cooler than ever. Keep scrolling to see the looks.
Dzafic knows that outfits don’t work without confidence. “Walking around in clothing or shoes that hurt or force you to constantly be fidgeting is never fun,” she says. “And I hope we’ve all collectively agreed that confidence is the best accessory. Personally, when I’m comfortable, I’m way more confident.”
