Running through the styling we love at the moment, let’s start with some women’s looks for every day. For a laid-back style pair with straight-leg jeans, simple tees and sunglasses.

If you are looking for want something floaty and comfortable for warmer weather, they look great with an ankle grazer style. Wear the Birkenstock Bostons barefoot or with socks and layer up or down.

Here is @holliemercedes in her super comfortable, practical, pyjama-inspired style.

The great thing about the Birkenstock Boston, is they come in so many neutral colour palettes that it gives you the styling freedom to wear with brights, creams, black and more.

This is the perfect styling inspiration for transeasonal dressing, easy to do and works well for the unpredictable weather.

Dressing the Birkenstock Boston up for a lunch date or evening drink, style with an oversized blazer and clutch bag for a minimalist look.

If you are wanting to take it up a notch for your holiday or night out, the Birkenstock Boston looks just as good with a bare leg. Paired here with an athleisure set, blazer and shoulder bag it has a dressing-up feeling while still providing you with all of the comforts.

Moving on to a man’s wardrobe, here’s the styling inspiration that caught our eye this month. The foundation to a summer wardrobe, the overshirt and shorts combo, well say no more here is the comfortable, breathable, stylish footwear alternative to a trainer or boat shoe.

For warmer weather, the Birkenstock Boston is great with linen. Whether that’s linen trousers, shorts or short the complimentary fabric textures in neutral colour palettes is very on-trend.

Easy to slip on, they are the perfect investment for the summer months. What initially we saw as a winter alternative with a covered-up toe has now become our go-to shoe to pack for the holidays. Style easily with your shorts and tees for this country and abroad.

Dress them up with a shirt for an evening vibe, great with straight-leg jeans or suit pants. Mules are having a moment in menswear, for their versatility – they compliment whatever style of trouser leg you prefer.

Lastly, for the ultimate city look pair it with your socks, sunnies and tote bag. Keeping it easy and cool, the neutral colours and an easy way to give your man’s wardrobe a summer feel!
