Who would’ve guessed in 2022 our social feeds would be flooded with so many cute Crocs outfit ideas? The EVO foam clog once deemed dorky is now enjoying a moment as one of the It shoes of the year, and a must-have for any fashionista worth her salt. Whether you’ve been rocking them for years or only just hopped on the comfy Crocs train, here are 24 outfit ideas to bookmark ASAP and try out for yourself all year long.
1. Pair Plain White Crocs with Classic Blue Denim
Think of your white Crocs in the same ways you would a pair of white kicks and pair them with another wardrobe staple, blue-wash denim. Pairs that show some ankle will help balance the thick soles of your shoes, but otherwise you can go forth and pick whatever silhouette you like best—cropped kick flares, boyfriend jeans or even overalls like Marina above.
2. Try a Fitted Midi Dress
Another fun way to balance out chunky Crocs is with a sexier silhouette, like Alana’s midi-length knit dress. The key here is to choose a dress that hits that sweet spot between comfy and foxy, like a ribbed knit bodycon or flowy midi with cutouts.
3. Get a Little Matchy-Matchy
Try an almost all monochrome look, like Erin’s lavender ‘fit above, by mixing multiple pieces that are super close in color to your beloved Crocs. Just be sure to add in one contrasting item, like a printed T-shirt or neutral-hued skirt, to tie all those pastels together.
4. Sport Head-to-Toe Black
The unofficial New York City uniform will always leave you looking chic and pulled together—yes, even if you’re sporting comfy Crocs and sweatpants. The best versions of an all-black outfit, however, incorporate multiple different textures and materials, like combining a quilted puffer coat, leather tote and cotton frock with rubber clogs.
5. Or Head-to-Ankle Black
For a look that’s a little lighter and less likely to blend into a crowd, try swapping black shoes for a printed version. We love Abby’s neutral-hued platform Crocs as an easy was to spice up a black T-shirt and pants without going too bright or bold.
6. Match Your Bag to Your Shoes
Follow in Katheryn’s very stylish footsteps and match a pair of brightly-colored Crocs with an equally vibrant handbag. You can even go as far as throwing a coordinating vest or jacket into the mix too. (P.S. Non-distressed, blue-wash denim acts as a perfect base for so much yellow.)
7. Play Around with Prints
Crocs come in so many funky prints and patterns—tie-dye, leopard print, tropical fronds—so why not continue the fun by mixing in more cheerful patterns, too? We’re obsessed with Coterie member Katie Sturino’s strawberry-and-stripe combination, which manages to feel both whimsical and grown-up all at once.
8. Pair Your Favorite Jibbitz with a Graphic Tee and Bright Crossbody
Jibbitz, for the uninitiated, are the cute clips you can attach to the top of your crocs to personalize them however you like. And what better way to play up your graphic footwear than with an equally graphic tee? Take inspiration from Katrina and swing a bright crossbody over your shoulder to help a gray tee match the energy of more colorful Jibbitz charms.
9. Swap Black or White Crocs for Chic Beige
Beige Crocs are every bit as versatile as classic black or white but feel much more unexpected and read as more fashion-forward than other neutral hues. Case in point, Christine’s surprisingly cool combo of silvery gray, white and black, with a matching beige bag to compliment her clogs.
10. Try Small Pops of Neon
On the flip side, if super-bright colors like neon pink or lime green are more your vibe, try pairing them with darker hues to really allow them to steal the spotlight. Even better if you can add another pop of the same hue up top by way of a scarf, headband or statement earrings.
11. Mix Shades of White and Cream
Wearing head-to-toe bright white runs the risk of washing you out or looking too clinical. But mixing multiple shades of the color, including light beige, cream, eggshell and even a few pops of bright white, like Natalya above, looks fresh, summery and all the more flattering.
12. Make Your Business Casual Attire Feel Weekend Ready
A houndstooth dress and ladylike top handle bag work great for casual Fridays at the office if you add in a pair of pointy-toe flats or loafers. But a pair of Crocs helps make these work-ready staples feel more appropriate for brunch with friends, while still looking mighty cute. Thanks for the inspo, Bonolo!
13. Swap Crocs In for Your Usual Heeled Sandals
PureWow editor Dara Katz would normally wear this look with some block-heeled sandals…and inevitably curse her arches and suffer the consequence of blisters by the end of the day. But as this outfit proves, comfy Crocs can look just as good even when paired with fashion-forward pieces. All without the risk of sore feet.
14. Combine Neutrals for Summer
Yes, you can wear long-sleeved black dresses in summer. Just be sure to stick to cool materials like linen or 100-percent cotton, and pair them with lighter accessories, like beige Crocs and a beachy straw bag à la Oonagh.
15. Combine Neutrals for Fall, Too
Those light-colored clogs are worth the investment, as you can wear them in autumn with the exact same styling tactics—stick with other neutrals like camel brown, winter white, gray or even a muted copper if you like, to tie your summer Crocs into a cool-weather look.

16. Try a Trendy Snakeskin Print
A simple chambray shirt and bike shorts looks so much cooler when you add in pieces with more of a luxe vibe, like snake print Crocs and a silk scarf à la Aza. Finish the look with hoop earrings and a series of layered necklaces for an extra dose of glam.
17. Platform Crocs Can Help Dress Up Wardrobe Basics
What’s the easiest way to make an oversize knit and raw-hem shorts feel special? Just follow Liz’s lead and add some platform Crocs into the mix (and maybe a pair of matching ’60s sunglasses, too). The added height will make your whole ensemble feel dressier without sacrificing comfort.
18. Don’t Be Afraid to Sport Crocs with Socks
What would have been considered a major faux pas just a few years ago—i.e., wearing sandals with socks—is now an accepted part of the normcore trend, and can actually look pretty darn cute. Case in point, Kelsey’s all black-and-white look above with crisp white ankle socks poking out from her classic black Crocs.
19. Or to Choose a Standout Sock, Either
If you’re more into fun prints and bright hues, pair the two together with some graphic socks and tie-dye Crocs. And while you could continue the theme by rocking patterned pants or other colorful pieces up top, we love Tuyen’s more laid-back combo of khaki pants and a denim jacket.
20. Take the Seriousness Out of Tailored Workwear
There are lots of shoes that can make a button-up shirt, trench coat and tailored trousers feel more low-key, but none are more fun than bright yellow Crocs—the ultimate commuter shoe for both keeping your feet happy and for bringing in all the compliments.
21. Create Your Own Colorblocking
Follow Anna’s super-cute lead and wear solid-hued Crocs in a stand-out shade like banana yellow with a similarly stand-out jumpsuit in a contrasting hue like millennial pink. The end result is a look that is artsy, cool and, most importantly, comfortable. (P.S. Adding a trendy bucket hat or belt bag with only up your cool factor.)
22. Try Classic On Top, Party On Bottom
With so many colors and patterns to choose from and a wide variety of customizable Jibbitz, Crocs are, above all else, fun. So remember to have fun wearing them. We adore Mylotte’s combination of wavy striped pants, yellow socks and highly-decorated lilac Crocs. But just in case you’re worried about overdoing it, you can always finish your outfit the same way she did with a simple button-up blouse to keep things looking funky but not weird.
23. Play with Volume
Normally we’d advise pairing a chunky shoe like Crocs with more streamlined silhouettes, but Emily’s look is making us seriously question that advice. The reason her wide-leg pants and flowy blouse work is because there is still some ankle showing between her hem and her shoe, and because she tucked in her top to show off her waist. Both those tricks can help prevent all that fabric from overwhelming your frame.
24. When in Doubt, Keep Things Simple
Crocs are meant to be comfy and casual, so you can never go wrong pairing them with other clothes with the same vibe. Follow Jennifer’s example and try a crisp white sweatshirt and easy black jeans paired with a sleek crossbody and Jibbitz-free crocs for a minimalist outfit you’ll want to wear all weekend long.
