Trend Alert: Birkenstocks

Birkenstocks were one of the major trends of the 80's. About year or two ago, designers such as Givenchy, Rebecca Minkoff, Stuart Weitzman, Marc Jacobs, have shown the world to start the trend back up again. For a few months now, this shoe style has gone viral! Bloggers all around the globe are posting how they wear them and more fashionistas have been jumping aboard the Birkenstock train. For many people, this shoe style may not be a love at first sight. If they are worn properly, this comeback trend may be the hottest shoe out there. Here I have some of my favorite Birk styles. Next, there are some impeccably fashionable ways that the world's greatest bloggers have been wearing them.

Here are some ways to rock this laid back trend.

Comfy: palazzo + cardigan
 Classy: B/W
 Fresh: white on white + metallic
Cool: tie dye + athletic pants 
 Preppy: blazer + skirt
 Dressy: blazer + bf jeans + accessories
 Tomboy: button-down + ankle jeans + club masters 
 Edgy: moto jacket + blacks
 Weekend Simples: oversized sweater + rolled jeans 
 Femme: croptop + ruffled peplum + sunnies
 Chic: strappy midi + barrel bag
 Tough: mixed media utility + destroyed denim
