Do or Don't? :: Clogs
Oh my gosh? Would you ever wear clogs? I can hardly look at these pictures without laughing, because all I can think of is the Tulip Time celebration near my hometown when everyone dressed up in traditional Dutch costumes, complete with braided hair and clogs. But at the same time, I cannot cannot cannot resist comfortable clothing, and there’s just something about clogs that screams, “I DON’T CARE I JUST DON’T WANT MY FEET TO HURT.” Maybe a better word is frumpy. Ha! But there’s nothing frumpy about the way women are styling clogs these days, and I can’t help being intrigued by this resurgence of the wooden shoe.
These clogs are handmade in San Francisco by Bryr Studio. You can custom order your style and color, so the possibilities are vast, and each rendition is perfectly on point. Beautiful and chic (and expensive!), one woman jokingly remarked that when she dies, she wants to be buried in her Bryr clogs. :)
A Beautiful Mess did a collaboration with the classic clog company Swedish Hasbeens awhile back to add some quirky and cute details. Elsie and Emma from ABM styled them with such colorful outfits that it made the classic shoe seem almost childish and whimsical.
These Sven Clogs are possibility my favorite rendition of the wooden shoe. Super minimal and sleek, they also have a moderate heel that would make me feel pulled together, even though you’re basically wearing slip-ons.
Hannah Anderson has long been a trusted source of basics for children and a couple years ago they branched out into women’s wear. Their Maguba clogs are handcrafted in Sweden and come in several different colors and styles. I love the way Hannah Anderson styles such practical yet cute looking outfits.
Most of these clogs are exorbitantly expensive for the average woman, but Old Navy has a pair on sale right now that are super cute.
What about you? Do or Don’t? Would you wear clogs? Too frumpy? Perfectly casual? How would you style them?
