How To Style Birkenstocks For Fall, Because They're Not Just A Perfect Summer Shoe

With autumn right around the corner, it's time to start stocking up on some transitional pieces. However, one summer staple you can easily take into fall with you will definitely be your Birkenstocks. Plus, figuring out how to style your Birkenstocks for fall is a breeze, especially with all of the inspiration you can scope out via Instagram. Whether you've got the Arizona Birks or the Gizeh Birks, I promise, there is a way that you can make the summer It sandal work for cooler weather.

A really quick and easy way to style up your Birks is to pair them with cute and dainty graphic socks. Now, I know socks and sandals have had a notorious reputation of being...not exactly for everyone, but with your Birks, it's definitely worth a try — I promise.

If you're extremely against the whole socks + sandals look, don't worry, this post will definitely have a variety of different ways to style your Birks come September. The key to styling them is to remember that the foundation for fall fashion is to layer, layer, layer! While you might think that a layered outfit will end up looking a bit funky with your feet still looking like summer in your sandals, you will totally change your mind after seeing these Birks seamlessly fitting into an array of different fall outfits.

1. Button-Ups

Flannels will also match perfectly with Birkenstocks. And when it starts to get colder, you can invest in some thicker flannels and button-ups.

2. Distressed Denim

Ripped jeans and Birks are about to put a final end to the Uggs and leggings trend.

3. Black

You can never go wrong with black.

4. Cuffed Boyfriend Jeans

I love, love, love the look of cuffed denim and Birkenstocks.

5. Light Scarves

A long, thin scarf goes great with any style of Birks.

6. Printed Joggers

A comfy pair of shoes deserves a comfy pair of pants.

7. Capris

I'm pretty sure Birks are going to bring back capris. Where are my '90s kids at?

8. Graphic Socks

You gotta admit...it's the perfect way to show off some of your favorite socks.

9. Wide Leg Pants

If your work place has casual Fridays, this is the perfect way to look put together and feel comfortable.

10. Dresses

Just add a chunky knit cardigan and you're set!

11. Long Cardigans

Love the short-sleeved, fleece cardie!

12. Horizontal Stripes

Striped shirts and strapped Birks. 'Nough said.

13. Skinny Jeans

I love how the chunky look of the Birks are balanced out with the straight look of the skinny jeans.

14. Fall Boho Style

Earthy tones rule fall.

15. Loose Layers

Hang loose.

If you want to ensure your Birks will last until fall, be sure you're cleaning them well!
