Love ’em or hate ’em, Birkenstocks are back in style! And despite the fact that they spark a bit of sartorial controversy (as trends often do), they’re undoubtedly one of the most comfortable options around. In case you’re on the fence about jumping onto the Birkenstock bandwagon, we’ve rounded up our favorite sandaled ensembles—styled by five trustworthy fashion bloggers—for inspiration.
Keep it monochromatic.
Worried about this statement shoe throwing off your style? Go for black or white Birkenstocks, then effortlessly incorporate them into your outfit by donning other pieces in a matching hue. We love Eva’s fresh and simple look (above) from her travels in Bondi. Nothing screams summer quite like a crisp white ensemble! (lead image courtesy of Miss Renaissance)
Travel in style.
If you’re looking to save some room in your suitcase, Birkenstocks are a perfect packing option. Amber packed her black Birkenstocks for a trip to France, where they looked so chic with her simple black dress! Staying comfortable during those European travels must’ve been a major plus.

Wear them on weekend errands.
Easily go “from workout to weekend” with black leggings and Birkenstocks. Replacing your post-gym sneakers and sweaty tank with a T-shirt and cardigan makes for a simple yet put-together look—perfect for gals on the go. (image courtesy of Pretty & Fun)
Dress ’em up.
Think Birkenstocks are only for casual wear? Think again! We love how Grace paired her metallic Birkenstocks with a striped shift dress and some baubles—it’s a polished daytime outfit that puts a fun twist on the classics. (image courtesy of The Stripe)
Add a bohemian twist.
Pair a basic black maxi dress with a hat, neutral layers and Birkenstocks. Nichole’s look is high on comfort without sacrificing style, and her Birks are the perfect footwear choice for a busy day. (image courtesy of Who Goes Wear)
