Are you one of those girls who looks for comfort over anything else when it comes to footwear? We love being able to take a break from the sky-high platforms and dangerous stiletto heels for something a little more down-to-earth and easy on our feet. Birkenstock sandals may not be as fashion-forward as its gladiator sandal counterpart but they can easily be dressed up to look just as cool and chic. In the summer, we love our Birkenstock sandals with a slouchy pair of cutoff shorts in a super washed out denim color, an oversized graphic tee, and a cool, rugged leather motorcycle jacket. The look is tomboy to the max, but with a pretty red lip and fingers full of rings, it is edgy and downtown cool, with a touch of boho from the Birkenstocks. Birkenstocks also look wonderful with a dainty little dress, in a bohemian floral pattern or fun geometric print. Wearing a lot of colors with your Birkenstocks is a fun idea to play around with for summer because it dresses your sandals up and balances out the natural, super simplistic nature of them. At Free People, we love making contradictions with our fashion choices, and Birkenstock sandals are the best place to start.
