Clogs regain popularity this summer due to designers such as Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel or Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton. If initially the wooden soled shoes were rather considered as being a type of footwear specially created for workers, and they could be seen on farms, nowadays clogs represent a very modern footwear that can be worn even in the most luxurious locations. Therefore, they became the perfect update for every fashionista.

More practical and lighter, modern clogs kept only the bottom part made out of wood, while the upper part is made from leather, cloth or any other fabric fixed on the sides using steel toecaps, and sometimes adorned with different embellishments such as flowers and prints.

This year, clogs made a strong come back in the fashion world. Karl Lagerfeld proposed a more elegant and stylish version with platform and high heels, while Marc Jacobs created for Louis Vuitton casual-trendy clogs with flat sole and funny embellishments.

Clogs are comfortable and easy to match. Practically, they can be worn with almost every look including dresses, skirts, skinny jeans or shorts.

For a casual, everyday look you can pair dress and clogs. Take a cardigan over the dress and you are ready to go to work. If you are more into the retro-chic look, pair your clogs with silk, breezy dresses with flounces and lace, and accessorize them with a versatile handbag and chic headbands. For a complete Lolita style, add a pair of lace gloves.

Pair them with a tight-fitting dress or stretch pants for a different and unique outfit. They can be also matched with shorts or mini skirt and a boyfriend blazer.

Try teaming high-heeled clogs with a shirt dress, a tote bag and oversized sunglasses. Also high-heeled clogs can be paired with shorts or cigarette jeans and a marinière.
