Clogs: Back Again in 2011

After last summers fixation in the fashion world and on the high street, I figured that would be the last I’d see of the clog for a while.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.

The clog is continuing it’s reign at the top of the footwear trends this spring/summer season, although they have been reworked to sich an extent that they don’t retain much of their original Dutch’charm’.

This year, fashion is looking farther than Holland to find it’s clog inspiration.  Instead, Swedish clogs is what it’s all about in spring/summer 2011.  With their wooden sole and leather upper, Swedish clogs have had the biggest impact on the clog trend this year.

And don’t forget the heel: to be truly trendy, your clogs must have a heel.  No flat clogs.  That’s a rule.
