While sandals are traditionally associated with warm weather, they can also be worn in winter with some adjustments to your outfit. And yes, sandals in winter – and with socks – are a thing! Here are some tips on how to wear sandals in winter (if you’re up for it)
Pair them with socks: Socks and sandals have been a trend in recent years, and they can be a great way to keep your feet warm in the winter AND express your personality! You may opt to choose a pair of thick wool or cotton socks in a coordinating colour with your sandals (think leg elongation) or add a patterned or even some sparkle to your sandal style for a real point of difference.
Wear with tights or leggings: Wearing sandals with tights or leggings can create a stylish and modern look, but make sure your sandals are modern and chunky (like pictured below) Choose tights or leggings in a coordinating colour with your sandals to create a cohesive look. A split hem pant looks great if leggings as pants aren’t your thing.
Opt for closed-toe sandals: Closed-toe sandals can be a great option for winter and look no further than the Birkenstock Boston Clog. With your styling options being leather or suede, team with a pair of socks (or not) with a pair of jeans or trousers and some oversized outerwear, and you might just be ‘on trend’ this winter!
Choose a warmer material: Look for sandals made from materials like leather or suede, which can be warmer than other materials like canvas or mesh. These materials also tend to be more durable and weather-resistant.
Pair with cozy layers: When wearing sandals in winter, it’s important to balance them out with warm and cozy layers on top. Try pairing your sandals with a chunky knit sweater or a wool coat to create a cozy and stylish look.
Remember, the key to wearing sandals in winter is to balance style with practicality. Keep your feet warm and protected while still looking fashionable!
