Clogs: Savvy or Not?

-images via style.com

At Chanel 2010 Spring Show, Mr. Lagerfeld brought clogs back from the dead. Suddenly, I am seeing clogs everywhere again. The scary thing is I actually still have clogs from years ago that look just exactly like these Chanels. I have a pair of brown. This just goes, if a gal wait long enough, everything in her closet will become trendy again.1. Celine clogs sale 180 via zappo.com (prod no. 364820)

Although clogs are not my favorite shoe style, I still wouldn't mind wearing a pair in a fun sporty fashion. So what will you wear with clogs? At the Chanel show, clogs are paired with lace dresses, feminine suiting, and flirty sport outfits. Back in the days, I will wear clogs with jeans, cute shorts and mini skirts. The only issue I have with clogs is the weight and I tend to trip over myself........ What do you think of clogs, savvy or not?

  1. I've never been a big fan of clogs but if worn with the right outfit, I think it can look nice. Agree with your statement about how everything comes back in style. I'm lucky to have stayed the same size for years. I can still wear some of my nice clothes from high school. Great post!

  2. You know the more I see photos of clogs, the more I want a pair! I esp. love those YSL ones you posted- very sleek! I love when Ashley O. wears them with those cords- I'd wear them with denim cutoffs and an oversized flannel. Hmm, may have to purchase some now! :)

  4. I'm not a fan of clogs. I had a pair in high school that were pretty cute, but I remember them being difficult to walk in!

  5. I'm very surprised to see these come back in at the moment. Like you said, everything comes back into fashion.

  6. I'm afraid I can't do clogs, didn't care for them before and now I know I really would fall over in the high heel clog. Something for everyone though...

  8. Exactly, if you wait long enough, everything you own will come back in style sooner or later! I'll pass on this trend, though. I didn't like the Chanel clogs at all - they looked mismatched with the otherwise beautiful outfits.

    My mom wears clogs for gardening... that says it all, as far as I'm concerned.

  11. I'm not sure even Mr. Lagerfeld can make me think clogs are cool. I think I'll just skip this trend.

  12. I just don't know if I can do clogs again- even if they are Chanel! I think I remember having some real lookers in the 90s and I really don't want to go back! XOXO

  14. Gosh... this is insane, I have a lot of clogs in my closet from years past, and they looked like the pieces you posted.

  15. oh sweet! I had a pair of clogs from 12 years ago that I can finally wear again! LOL I'm not even joking! (I accidently left it at my parents house before moving out and I guess they never tossed it hahaha)

  16. I'm not a huge clog fan- I had a pair in college, but I don't wear anymore. I do like the Vera Wang pair here though.

  17. I'm not a big clog fan...and I don't know if I'd ever be able to bring myself to purchase a pair...although they do look pretty fab on some of the models. :)

  18. they were so huge in the 90's ...of course they make a comeback now ...I'm not a huge fan of the original look ...although I did have a few pairs that I think my mom still wears ...I'd love an updated version ...the chanels are cute

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, I had no idea these were making a comeback. Isn't that always the case. I wish I never threw anything away because I end up buying the same stuff every 8 years!

  20. I don't like clogs at all...they make me feel really clunky! I think the Chanel ones are pretty cute though! xoxoxoxo

  21. I'm not a huge fan and don't own any but they are okay. I do like the Vera Wang pair. But other than those they are just meh. Don't love em, don't hate em.

  23. I'm not a big fan of clogs. Although I do like some of these that you have here...

    ReplyDelete
  24. No. hate them. Lol is that harsh? Well I have a solid explanation. I have SUPER skinny bird legs. Clunky clogs make me look like a total dork lol

    However, some people can rock them and look awesome... so maybe I just jealous lol

  25. Hmm, I guess the '90s fashions really are coming back! I'm not sure whether I'd try clogs again, even though the ones that you posted are cute. I don't remember them as being particularly comfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just can't really get into them. Although, the Vera Wangs aren't so bad!

  27. i don't like clogs and i'm affraid to wear it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. hmm.. not sure i'm sold on the clog idea.. they can have their moments though

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am not a fan. They just remind me too much of Dutch farmers. They're so clunky and heavy and how can they possibly make a girl look attractive?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I had a few fave pairs years ago but I'm not sure I could do it again. I feel like I'm too old and need the extra comfort, LOL. I guess I'd have to find a pair that didn't feel wooden...

  35. i really dislike clogs but if i had to choose, i'd go with #2.

  36. Hmm never say never eh? I'll reserve judgement on this one and just say in certain incarnations I think clogs could work again. I think maybe in a more masculine style perhaps?

  37. I'm a huge fan of clogs!
    Clogs have always been a staple of my wardrobe. Mostly for casual wear. Much more comfortable than they have been given credit for.
    From the Birkenstocks to the Bastads and Danskos and even the designer (Nine West, Steve Madden, etc.), its about time that they get a little love!
