In years, as I look back on 2020, I am forever reminded of the fashion trends that came up unexpectedly, from face masks and tie-dye to matching sets and clogs – things that admittedly I never thought I would would be remotely on my radar. The joke is on me I guess right? My stylish colleague Natalia Sztyk went with the flow just last year when circumstances began to dictate her fashion choices. “When our company started working from home, I knew I needed slippers for my standing desk.” Fourteen months and four pairs Crocodiles later on, they’re officially Natalia’s favorite shoes, and she’s definitely not afraid to tell you that.
Like so many other fashion people, Natalia has always poetically opposed the brand to me, which is why I felt it necessary to tell her that Crocs is a sleeper hit in the sandals department too. “Okay, but they are definitely not as comfortable, cute or easy to wear as the clogs,” she replied cheekily and immediately selected a few styles of sandals to test them out. Did I blow it up? “They make me feel like walking on a cloud,” admits Natalia. Keep scrolling to see the three summery fits she styled with them that are just so good.
