How to make sandals part of your winter wardrobe

Although it’s commonly thought that sandals are only suitable for the summer months, the most stylish and fashionable influencers and bloggers are making a new item called the winter sandal.

If you want to try different looks, follow these guides on how to look chic in winter with your favorite pair, despite the temperature.

Cozy

You can take style inspiration from Pernille Teisbaek. She kept cozy by wearing a fur-lined pair of sandals with neutral shocks. Then keep the rest of your outfit casual with jeans and your favorite jacket to stay warm on the winter weekends.

In fact, the controversial sandals and socks trend is back this winter. The bold look has been doing the rounds on the circuit of street style once again. Whether you love or hate this style, it is worth revisiting this season.

Simple

Although an elegant sandal may be more suitable with an evening soirée, it can create a different feel to your daily wardrobe in winter. Try making the layered ensembles look elegant by wearing a simple heeled sandal with straps (not in case of having to walk outside for too long).

Clashing

If you are more of a minimalist than a maximalist when it comes to style, then look away. This look isn’t for the faint-hearted, but when pulled off right, it can really make an impact. Pair bright colored tights in one shade or patterned logo tights with a shoe for a look so extra that Carrie Bradshaw herself would approve.

Full-On Fluffy Sandals

We’re used to fluffy slides, but how about fluffy sandals? That’s a new one for us to try this winter.

Ugg has created the ‘Fluff Yeah’ sandals, which is covered in sheepskin from top to bottom and comes in various shades. It gives the perfect way to keep the warmth for the winter sandals.

So, now you know how to make sandals part of your wardrobe in winter, but are you brave enough to try them?
