Return Of The Clog Trend
Clogs are making a comeback in the fashion world and it’s not hard to see why. These versatile and comfortable shoes have been around for centuries and have been worn by many cultures, but they’re now being rediscovered by a new generation.

One of the reasons for the resurgence in popularity of clogs is the current trend towards sustainable and eco-friendly fashion. Clogs are made from natural materials like wood and leather, and they’re often produced by small, independent manufacturers using traditional techniques. This makes them a great option for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint and support local businesses. As we look towards a greener future, phenomenal pieces like these are so important.
Another reason for the renewed interest in clogs is their versatility. They can be dressed up or down, and they’re perfect for both casual and formal occasions. They’re also great for those who are on their feet all day, as the wooden soles offer support and comfort.
Clogs are also very easy to wear. They slip on easily and can be worn with or without socks. They come in a variety of colors and styles, from traditional wooden clogs to modern, minimalist designs. This means that there is a pair of clogs for everyone, whether you’re looking for something casual or something more formal. If your style is a little more funky or a little more minimal, there’s a clog out there for you.
Overall, clogs are a great choice for anyone looking for a comfortable and sustainable shoe option. They’re easy to wear, versatile, and eco-friendly. So, if you’re looking to add a new pair of shoes to your wardrobe, consider giving clogs a try. You may be surprised at how versatile and comfortable they are. Snag a pair ASAP!
How To Wear Clogs
While clogs are incredibly easy to wear and style, styling a new kind of shoe or any clothing piece for that matter can really make it difficult to decide the best way to wear the new piece.
Here are some tips on how to wear clogs and make them work for you:
Pair clogs with straight leg jeans and a blouse for a casual yet put-together look. This is a great option for running errands or meeting friends for lunch. If you need a more elevated look, you can dress up clogs by pairing them with a dress or skirt. This creates a more formal look and is perfect for work or a special event where the dress code is essentially “dressed up but cool.”
Clogs also look great with shorts and a t-shirt. Perfect for spring and summer and ready to just be the new throw on shoe. Experiment with different heel heights too! Clogs are available in a range of heel heights, from flat to high. Choose a heel height that is comfortable for you and that flatters your legs and makes sense for the event.
Choose the right socks. Clogs can be worn with or without socks, depending on your personal preference. If you choose to wear socks, make sure they are thin and don’t show above the shoe. Unless that’s part of the look. Then maybe add in the slouchy sock trend.
When pairing and accessorizing, consider the color and style of the clog. Neutral colors such as brown and black are versatile and can be worn with a variety of different outfits. A color pop pair can bring the fun to any outfit, but if you’re looking for the neutral shoe, stick to a neutral color. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a brightly colored or patterned clog for a bold statement.
Socks And Clogs
A big question when it comes to clogs is do you wear socks with it. This is so up to you and how you want to style your clogs in line with your personal style. Personal style is still so important while following trends, so little style details like socks or no socks are great for helping you make sure you wear these clogs in line with your own style.
Wearing socks with different styles of shoes is really trendy right now too, so you’re not totally leaving the realm of trends when you pair socks with clogs, but you are definitely channeling a different aesthetic overall.
It’s the preppy and the grunge alike that love a good crew sock or slouchy sock with their loafers, sneakers, and clogs, and it’s totally up to you to pick if this is your style or not.
It all depends on the outfit anyway, if you’re wearing a pair of baggy jeans, no one will see it anyway. Throw on the sock! If you’re rocking a dress, skirt, or shorts, then there’s so many options. If the rest of the outfit is pretty plain and casual, a basic sock could be cute, or no sock. A stylized casual look would be the perfect opportunity to add a few more little details for the overall look. A chunky sock is too cute and would look perfect with a little pleated mini skirt and plain white tee.
If your style is generally more minimalist, this is not the sock trend for you. You can totally wear a no show or no sock at all with your clogs, and leave it chic and minimal all on its own.
