A lot of fashionistas have sworn off mandals, and even labeled them as the ugly sandals. But whether you love 'em or you hate 'em, you can't deny the versatility of the mandals, and how comfortable a pair can be, too! So if you love rocking the mandals, but are afraid that you might draw strange stares for wearing 'em, we're showing you trendy ways you can wear your favorite pair of comfy mandals from classroom to hangout!


The mandals are a casual and masculine type of footwear. So to balance its masculinity, pair it with a fun and bright top with a pair of distressed overalls. Cap the look off with a trendy military jacket for a cool school uniform.


Wear your go-to mandals with a chic slip dress for a style equation nobody would expect. It's quirky and unpredictable, but it's fashion-forward, and a comfy OOTD for a hangout with your closest friends, too.


Would you ever wear a pair of mandals to school? How do you plan on rocking this fashion trend everyone loves to hate, but couldn’t?

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
