As summer‘s classic generation-spanning sandal, a Birkenstock is always a good idea—and this spring a totally new silhouette is joining the bunch. The Yao takes the brand’s slip-on-and-wear-with-anything vibe to even more versatile levels.
Whether for brunch, vacation, or your average Tuesday, these slim-strapped sandals are just the addition your wardrobe has been craving. The criss-crossed straps are thinner than the traditional style and sit closer to the toes (à lathe standard mule silhouette). With the same comfortable cork footbed that the brand’s known for, we’re happily styling them with everything in our closet. So,Here, eight ways to wear them this spring.
1. Birkenstock As a subtle complement to white
Opt for a pair in metallic copper when seeking an outfit addition that’ll bring a little pop of something special without overpowering an optic-white jumpsuit.
2. Birkenstock To make a midi skirt casual
Whether you’re heading on vacation or into another workweek, try styling a midi skirt and t-shirt with a bright white pair. It’s easy, elegant, and comfortable.
3.Birkenstock To modernize basics
Go for the classics with a button-down, khaki pants, and cross-body box bag. Shake up the preppy feel with hippie-cool sandals.
4. Birkenstock For a timeless vibe
Keep things casual-cool with a pair of light-wash jeans and a single-button blazer. Classic sandals make the effortless look timeless too.
5. As a palette cleanser
With head-to-toe red, it’s smart to opt for clean white accessories. While the outfit by itself is bold, the bag and sandals make just as strong of a statement.
6.With a monochromatic moment
Have fun with color by pairing red and pink. Metallic silver Yaos ground the look while also providing a bit of whimsy.
7.When wearing a rainbow of hues
When wearing lots of color, stick within the same shade family to avoid overload. Copper complements warm rainbow stripes while also bringing its own pop.
8.Add a touch of personality
Birkenstock Yao Sandal; For an easy everyday look that’s far from basic, pick simple shapes in unique fabrics or colors. Case in point? A silk button-down, army green skinnies, and sandals in high-shine silver.
