Thanks to Alexa Chung, mainly, clogs have somehow made their way into the fashion zeitgeist again. They’re popping up already this spring, and trust us, we’ve been seeing a lot of clogs for fall and winter coming out–they’re here to stay, albeit for a few seasons. Don’t be scared–we’re here to help. There are a lot of great options available online that won’t make you look silly, and we are here to help you get the trend right–without looking like a Danish milkmaid:
We suggest going with an updated clog like this Steven by Steve Madden ‘Barc’ Peep Toe Clog ($99). The clog trend looks best with casual day dresses like this Banana Republic silk striped drape dress ($110) which has cool draping and details. To make the dress office appropriate, trhow a Gap cardigan over it in a soft neutral color to temper the look ($49.50). To dress the look up a little, try this Aqua Beaded Stretch Bracelet ($38). Of course, if you’re going to try the open toe clogs, make sure you get a pedicure with a rich red color like this Essie Wicked Nail Polish ($8).
We love the light brown suede on this Steven by Steve Madden ‘Barc’ Peep Toe Clog ($99) and the double row studs. It’s a clog, but still sexy.
This Banana Republic silk striped drape dress ($110) will be your go-to for spring and summer. You can wear to work with a cardigan, or without for a date.
You can’t have enough cardigans, and this heather brown Gap Cardigan ($49.50) is a nice change from basic black or white.
We like the idea of wearing a dark and rich nail polish with these clogs, and this Essie Wicked Nail Polish ($8) is a beautiful deep red.
