LOOKBOOK: THE SUMMER MAN-DAL TREND

LOOKBOOK: THE SUMMER MAN-DAL TREND

Untitled

Summer of 2014 saw the heavy-footed masculine Birkenstock smash its way onto the scene. A year later I’m pretty much allergic to a dainty and feminine looking sandal.

This summer I am channeling the man-dal trend: clunky, chunky, geeky but oh so comfy.

Our men-friends are not fans of the man-dal trend, oh no sir! But when the Man-dal balances out a feminine summer look so well it would be rude to ignore the plethora of geek/chic sandal offerings this season.

Coming up trumps is Clarks with their Celine inspired Zena Mae Sandal; chunky and boyish with a moulded foot bed, these sandals work well with a paired down masculine silhouette or flippy summer dresses.

The quality is a beauty – as with all Clarks craftsmanship. I’ve walked a few miles in these and they are super comfy, especially when running around the city!

I’ve paired my silver Zena Mae’s with a low key look for a summer weekend BBQ at home with the family. My favourite pair of skinny’s are these dark navy O Cropped style from Monki and my Tunic style top with roomy front pockets and deep V neck is from ASOS.

I finished the look with my RayBan Round Green Classic SS15 sunnies and a simple silver bangle from Finery. For full “Beauty Notes” on my makeup in this Lookbook click here.
