Originally designed as an all-wooden shoe, clogs have completely evolved stylistically and are currently available in a variety of textiles, from funky leathers to eye-popping cloth patterns. While the traditional clog was created with a modest heel, current heel options appear to be boundless, which means you can shop for something completely flat, chunky or sky-high if you dare. Sold on the trend but not sure where to start your search? Check out uber-popular Swedish Hasbeens for everything from T-strap sandal-like clogs to zippered options that go up to the ankle. You can also look for something comfortable like Dansko, which is the leader in supportive and stylish clogs.
It’s true that clogs can be difficult to style, but you’re in luck because we have a few ideas to get you started. For a look that’s both feminine and casual, try rolling up the bottom of jeans and fastening the ankle strap of a scallop-edged peep-toe clog, or if it’s chilly outside and you don’t want to wear anything with an open toe, pair slip-on ankle clogs that go up to the ankle with your jeans instead. Either way you style them, you can’t go wrong with this coveted shoe.
