We love our Birkenstocks around here — Birkenstocks of all types (including…ooo…the special-edition Birks in the NSale). But I’ve always had a special place in my heart for those metallic Birkenstock sandals. They’re such a statement (whether you pick silver or rose gold – doesn’t matter), and the vibe is so chic and cool.
And while I know I’m late to this party (metallic Birkenstocks are nothing new, per se), I’ve been wondering about styling, especially in an everyday, casual wardrobe. Can metallic Birkenstocks be just as versatile as the usual neutral colors? Or do they need…idk, special bags or dresses or something?
Metallic Birkenstock Sandals *Are* Versatile: 5 Casual Summer Outfit Ideas
Below are five summer outfit ideas with metallic-silver Birkenstock Arizona sandals. I leaned into pieces & outfits I already like to wear in the summer (easy jumpsuits, faded black cutoffs, etc.), and included my usual, everyday bags (like belt bags and straw bags). And since I couldn’t resist, I did style them up with a matching silver bag because wow.
Outfit 1: Get A Li’l Sporty In A Flowy, Flirty Jumpsuit + Metallic Birks
Note: This Free People Throw & Go wide-leg jumpsuit is pretty much my ideal athleisure jumpsuit. It’s super-stylish and actually comfortable enough to work out in (preferably, an indoor workout with the AC on blast). Also, it’s perfect for simply lounging in and NOT working out in.
Outfit 2: Chill Out In A Dreamy Oversized Denim Shirtdress + Metallic Birks
Note: This Chillout Shirtdress by Wash Lab Denim comes in seven other colors, and it’s super-comfortable.
Outfit 3: Say ‘Yes’ To The Shirtdress + Silver Metallic Birks
A white shirtdress is a classic staple — as versatile as it is chic — that nicely offsets the glam leather of the metallic sandals.
Note: There’s a reason this Everlane button-up dress is a TME team favorite (both Laura and Anne have rocked it). It’s not only lightweight and breezy (which makes it perfect for outdoor summer activities), but it’s also super-versatile. Swapping closed-toe flats for a pair of metallic Birkenstock Arizonas is one of the easiest ways to convert this workwear-approved look into a more casual, everyday style. And for sport mamas all tied down to various athletic fields this summer, don’t forget to pack the Supergoop! sunscreen.
Outfit 4: Lemme Upgrade Ya To A Striped Shirt + Cutoffs + Metallic Birks
NOTE: Oversized button-ups are an easy way to upgrade any outfit while also providing just as much comfort and breathability as a tee. I just feel really at ease in this look, especially when paired with cutoff shorts and metallic Birks.
Outfit 5: Meet Me At The Beach In A Midi Dress + Metallic Birks
Nothing says “Beach Day Vibes” like casual midi dresses, Birkenstock sandals and margaritas.
Note: This outfit can easily take you from morning to evening. It’s the perfect summer vacation outfit whether you’re at the pool, beach or Tiki Bar. I especially love these SLOWTIDE beach towels, they are lightweight, made from sustainably sourced cotton, and are the perfect size.
Hope you guys are enjoying the dog days of summer as much as I am. We’re currently beachside visiting my parents, and the biggest dilemma I hope to be facing today is: margarita or piña colada?
