Bobbie Thomas, TODAY Style Editor and author of the Buzz column for In Touch weekly rounded up the exciting and surprising items to look out for in 2010 style trends (such as grey-beige nail polish), and I was excited to see wooden clogs are making a comeback! Woohoo!
Clogs are back, and in new forms and fun patterns. Heavy hitters Chanel and Louis Vuitton both sent models marching down the runway in updated versions of the wooden shoe rather than teetering stilettos that have caused many to tumble. Designs from contemporary collections such as Stuart Weitzman and No. 6 are editor picks for spring. Hollywood’s not far behind with celebs scooping pairs from C&C Sweden, which offers everything from fun florals to metallics and even patent leather versions. And if you just can’t wait to follow in their footsteps, Free People has come out with a warm way to sport the style “” the “clog boot”.
