The Clarks Wallabee Boot is Back. Here’s How to Wear It.

Since its debut in the 1960s, the Clarks Wallabee boot has transcended trends, remaining a style staple in many men’s wardrobes for over half a century. However, it’s only recently I’ve noticed the shoe popping up on Style Girlfriend’s Instagram Explore page everywhere.

Like the Adidas Samba sneaker and Birkenstock clog before it, the Wallabee, it seems, is having a moment.

Unlike its chunkier combat boot cousins, the Wallabee embraces a sleeker, moccasin-inspired silhouette, crafted from premium suede or leather. The iconic footwear bridges the gap between casual and smart, making it a versatile choice for all kinds of men’s looks. Not to mention all the colors it comes in, as well a lower rise and a high top-esque boot. Let’s dive into how you can incorporate the Wallabee boot into your everyday wardrobe.

I am a sucker for a man in white (or off-white) pants. This whole look is the perfect outfit for transitioning into the warmer months.

Cool, clean, and suggests spring is almost here.

Neutrals will work every time when it comes to this casual, classic outfit.

Look 2: Black suede with a cardigan on top

What elevates this easy-to-wear outfit is the details. From the watch to the bandana to the socks matching (but not exactly) the cardigan, I love everything about this men’s outfit.

Feel free to swap in a crewneck or v-neck sweater if you’re not a cardigan guy. Or, dress it down with a sweatshirt.

Just don’t skip the bandana. It makes the whole look!

Look 3: neutral wardrobe staples

An easy, breezy outfit combination. Right now, all the girlies love wearing a crewneck sweater with a white t-shirt peeking out, and why should we have all the fun?

What makes this men’s outfit especially interesting is the mix of textures. The rib knit, denim, and suede…it’s the right answer to the question, “What should I wear?” on an early spring day.

This outfit is deceptively simple. Add a jacket if you need it, but this mix of elevated basics is giving off-duty stealth wealth.

Look 4: lots of layers

Depending on where you live, you may want to ratchet the layers on this look up or down.

I love the idea of sticking to earth tones for every element for a cohesive, stylish look.
