Is This the 2017 Way to Wear Birkenstocks?



Birkenstocks may fall into the so-called "ugly shoe" category, but that hasn't stopped fashion girls from breaking them out summer after summer. While these under-$100 sandals have remained a staple, though, what to wear them with is constantly changing. Our latest source of inspiration comes courtesy of Toni Garrn. While in Cannes, the model put a fresh twist on summer style by pairing the casual slip-ons with a sophisticated slip dress.

While the high-low combination might not be an outfit that first comes to mind, there's something oh so refreshing about the combination. For daytime, the sandals, along with a simple layered gold necklace, make the slip feel just relaxed enough. While it would be easy to swap in heels to take the ensemble into the evening, if you're a stickler for comfort, we'd just keep things simple and stick with the Birkenstocks. Bottom line: This is the coolest way to wear our favorite easy summer sandals this year!
