Birkenstock Bostons: How to style the fashion set’s favourite clogs


by Sarah Finnan
15th Mar 2024

A sort of hybrid slipper/shoe, Birkenstock Boston clogs have surged in popularity in recent years, establishing themselves as a fashion favourite – these days, you’d do well to scroll Instagram and *not* come across them at least once.

As good in autumn with a pair of chunky socks as they are in summer when it’s bare feet all the way, the humble clog is the perfect ‘throw on and go’ shoe. But, how do you wear them? The good news is that they pretty much go with everything. From silk midi skirts to floaty, linen dresses and your favourite blue jeans; here’s how to style them.

With a silk midi skirt and a poplin shirt

A silk midi skirt and a poplin shirt will see you through many seasons. In winter, they work well with tights, boots and a thick knit. As the weather improves and the Grand Stretch™ returns, they’re best paired with bare legs and Birkenstock Bostons.

With jeans and a white tee

About as classic an outfit combination as they come, there’s pretty much nothing that jeans and a white tee don’t go with. Add a slick of red lipstick and some statement jewellery to dress things up a bit or keep it casual with your favourite sunnies and minimal makeup. The perfect SS ‘fit.

With a summer dress

The ultimate no-fuss ensemble, a summer dress and a pair of Boston clogs is both comfortable and chic – ideal for holidays when you want something loose-fitting but still stylish.
