Love them or loathe them, Birkenstock style sandals have been appearing on everyone from the Olsen twins to Vogue editors, and i've got to admit - they're growing on me.
|Birkenstock Arizona Two Strap - Office £49.95|
Once I got past my initial reservations of associating them with grandparents and every suburban dad - I realised, they're really not that bad. A trend that is fashionable AND comfortable - what's not to love?! Designers ranging from Givenchy to Steve Madden have even released their own versions inspired by the classic sandal.
With the average price tag for a pair of Birkenstocks coming in at just under £50, the high street has provided some affordable and equally as stylish options.
|Topshop Slip Ons - £26|
|Topshop Chunky Slip Ons - £48|
|River Island Metallic Mules - £26|
My personal favourites that I will definitely be adding to my summer wardrobe are these gold metallic numbers from River Island - brought to my attention by uglyfaceofbeauty. They're super versatile and can be paired with skinny jeans, shorts or summer dresses to create an effortless, comfortable yet on trend look this season. I love the metallic shine, and think that it makes them look fun and youthful, more "me".
Love or Loathe - whats you're opinion on this summers Birkenstock revival?!
