What’s practical, useful, AND on-trend? Metallic sliders. We may be seeing boots in stores already but it’ll be some time (hopefully) before we really need them – I’ve heard rumours of a warm September on the horizon. In the meantime sliders are perfect with everything from dresses to denim and of course, easy to slip on and off when trying to get everyone out of the door.

Why silver Birkenstocks?
The chunkiness of Birkenstock sandals means they make ankles and legs appear slimmer and a metallic finish elevates the somewhat humble slip-on slider for a more interesting look, not to mention the reflective qualities of a shiny silver shoe throwing light up onto your legs. Don’t forget that metallic shoes work like a neutral so work with any outfit.
How to wear
Late summer casual
Wear a logo tee and ripped skinny jeans with your Birkenstocks for simple style that’s practical for mum-ing but still feels on trend. Stick with a monochrome palette to keep it slick and if you’re back on the school run and there’s a nip in the air first thing, throw on an oversized shirt or khaki shacket (thick shirt meets light jacket) to finish the look.
Use a minimalist leather backpack with clean lines over a straw beach basket to bring your Birkenstocks out of the summer holidays and into September and back to regular routines again.
But if you’re still yet to head off on holiday or get a trip to the seaside, then of course, pack your Birkenstocks in your beach bag with your shorts and skirts and embrace it, you lucky thing!
