Style Tip 101: How to Slay Your Next Vacation with These Iconic Sandals

Remember your favorite pair of Birks?

During the turn of the century, we left some of the most iconic fashion statements that debuted in the 90s; one of those fashion statements is the popular German sandal Birkenstocks that rose to prominence during the height of the grunge movement.

But it seems that the fad has been making a comeback in recent years, with the ever so often-chic Olsen twins spearheading the trend. Supermodels such as Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio are often seen wearing Birks at airports, a testament on how comfy and stylish the sandals are. With its versatility, they could be the perfect travel companion that’ll go with any chosen outfit. Case in point: these five outfits that all go too well with a pair of Birkenstocks.

Style # 1: A Day at the Beach

A dip in the pool or a day by the beach is a must for all getaways; having stylish OOTDs for lounging by the water is also a must. With your Arizona Birks, you can look stylish and comfortable at the same time. Pair the Birks with an off shoulder white maxi dress and a straw hat for an effortlessly chic look.
