Bye-bye bunions! Your feet can rejoice this spring and summer, as supportive sandals are set to be the biggest shoe trend.

The geeky-looking Birkenstocks have for years been considered acceptable to wear only when taking out the trash or walking your dog, but they are back on the fashion scene with a bang with style gurus such as Alexa Chung rocking them.

But how do you wear supportive sandals with style? Our stylist Bianca Pizem shares her top tips.

Best feet forward

Birkenstocks expose every single one of your toes, so make sure your feet are looking immaculate. In other words, a fresh pedicure is a must.

Balance with chic
If you wear your supportive sandals with a daggy outfit, the overall impression will be “meh”. However, pairing your Birkies with tailored pants, dressy shorts, well-fitting designer jeans or a ladylike dress will help to counterpoint the look.

Pair with boyfriend dressing
For a more casual look, Birkenstocks work really well with an oversized shirt, boyfriend jeans or a menswear inspired tuxedo jacket – but don’t wear all garments at once!

Mo’ minis
Do you have a skirt or dress that’s just a few centimetres too short for your comfort? Try pairing it with your supportive sandals. The flat heels will bring it down a notch, and make it look less walk of shame and more walk of casual fame.

#ThrowbackThursday: 1994, “The Rachel”

Jennifer Aniston has a lot of things we all wish we had – a sizzling career, a hot fiancé, immaculate style and a banging bod.

However, the one thing that the everyday woman has been able to quite easily replicate was her 1994 haircut, famously dubbed “The Rachel” after her character in the hit comedy show Friends.

The style was a bouncy, layered look and Jennifer rocked The Rachel during the first and second season of Friends. Women all over the world fell instantly in love with the tresses, and the hairstyle has been named the most popular and most copied of all times.

However, Jennifer herself has said that she thought the look was hair-raising.

“It was the ugliest hair cut I’ve ever seen,” she admitted to Allure magazine in 2011.

Her hairdresser Chris McMillan has even revelaed he was stoned when he created the world famous look.

“I’m 14 years sober. So I feel safe enough to say that,” he revealed last year.

International Label Etienne Marcel…

With a Fresh Take on Denim…

THE BRAND

Fittingly named after an 18th Century French merchant whose success came from his incredible sense of innovation, Etienne Marcel was born in 2011 out of a desire to offer the world a fresh take on denim. It is also fitting that Etienne Marcel is the name of one of the most popular streets in Paris. Using only the finest fabrics from Europe, the line has set a new standard for premium denim.

The design team travels the world, gathering inspiration and discovering new methods to create denim that is unique yet timeless. This results in a spectacular line of denim that suits a wide array of people while noticeably separating itself from the countless denim brands that are currently in the market.

The 60s inspired Fall/Winter 2013 collection mixes rock-and-roll and ethnic influences, heavily focusing on details. On multiple styles, one can find a signature red zipper detail that polishes off the jeans and acts as an unmistakable marker for the brand.
