Don Dad Sandals, But Make It Fashion

Move over, dad sneakers. It's time for dad sandals to shine.

‘Dad’ fashion seems to be coming full force at us. We’ve had the sneakers, fanny packs, jorts, stripes, and now, another variation to be added to the list. For those who are unfamiliar, ‘dad’ fashion refers to essentially any article of clothing or fashion accessory that the average dad won’t mind being caught dead in.

The items usually scream “bad taste!” but the perplexing thing about them is that while they may raise brows initially they eventually grow on us. Today’s case in point? Dad sandals.

It seems like fashion houses (like Chanel and Prada, just to name a few) have moved on from chunky sneakers to sandals that offer the same kind of ironic, so-bad-it’s-good look that many have been going after in recent times. The fashion savvy set has since picked up on it, saturating our Instagram feeds with all sorts of dad sandal variations styled with everything from chic dresses to oversized suits.

Above, styling inspiration from the ‘gram, and similar shopping options at a range of price-points to cart out below.
