Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may think of white denim overalls and striped top to match with your Birkenstocks, or simply pair your distressed white jeans with fluffy and chic sweater like Danielle Bernstein did, making your outfit look casual-chic.
- Opt for sleek and chic ensembles to dress up your Birkenstocks.
Chic shorts, dress pants, culottes, cropped tops, and suede skirts give enough dressy vibe to spice up your Birkenstocks. You may think of contrasting fabrics on your outfit or give an interesting structure to your outfit to draw attention away from your not-so-feminine sandals. Wearing your button-down shirt modernly like in an off shoulder style with culottes, or even wearing shorts with a tunic can make your outfit trendy with Birkenstock sandals.
