In my opinion, the only okay clogs are clogs with a heel and only with certain kinds of outfits. I can't remember where, but recently I saw a picture of some actress wearing clogs with a bright coloured swooshy skirt and a peasant blouse, and the bright colours and flimsy material looked a little too Dutch peasant. Like, the reason people don't like clogs.
However, they've worked their way into some surprising ensembles and definitely come out on top.
I'm already a fan of the faded denim/chambray shirt, and clogs fit in surprisingly well with this relaxed look I think.
I think the trick with clogs is that you have to treat them as a statement - as you would an exceptionally bright colour or mix of colours.
So, that in mind, they don't need a brightly coloured ensemble to bring them out. In the words of Coco Chanel, elegance is refusal, people.
So let's not get too nutsy.
I call this the polished/sophisticated clog. It's actually a really chic outfit. Of course, copious amounts of Chanel always helps, but all the same.
Finally, the flirty clog. Yes, I said it. No, i'm not flirting talking about wearing clogs, red headscarf and a peasant skirt while flirting using a generous hunk of Gouda as your main weapon of seduction. Not at all. Clogs have just proven they can seamlessly fit into a flirty evening outfit. I'm floored. I also think women like them because, just like super huge IT bags, such a huge chunky shoe makes your legs look skinnier in comparison. Crafty, crafty clogs.
