As the sun begins to show itself more often on Comm. Ave and Fashionistas pull out their brighter, less bulky clothes, I find myself thinking about shoes. In anticipation of the arrival of spring, BU Fashionistas have been stocking up on '70s inspired dresses, high-waisted shorts and more than enough crop tops. Eventually, everybody’s closets are bursting with warm-weather clothes that still can’t be worn due to the 30-something degree temperatures. With that said, I think it’s time to turn our focus onto footwear. More specifically, clogs. Clogs are the perfect ‘between season’ shoe because they easily slip on and keep your feet protected from the wind and cold.
I spotted this Fashionista looking fashionable while strutting down Comm. Ave. in a pair of tan clogs. My favorite aspect of her pair is the studded detailing that runs along the bottom. It keeps the clogs from looking too basic without being overwhelming. Today's Fashionista also shows how easily this type of footwear is to style. She rocks hers with an outfit of J.Crew-esque layers and skinny jeans to achieve that effortless look that everyone wants.
To follow our Fashionista’s footsteps (pun intended), simply add a great pair of clogs to your wardrobe. For those really inspired by her chic footwear, try a similar pair of clogs with studded details, or a pair of basic peep-toe clogs. Asos’ Sanita High Clog is another option with studs, but adds extra velvet details for a modern and trendy look. For the more daring Fashionistas, try Diane von Furstenberg’s Faye Clogs – the animal print will make sure you stand out in a crowd. You can also try a pair of clog-inspired sandals, like Asos’ Sanita Vela Plateau Clogs. The dusty blue and pink colors are perfect for spring and can easily be worn with various looks. So while waiting for the weather to get warmer, take some motivation from our Fashionista and get your own pair of clogs that can be warn in any weather!
