We read Glamour Magazine like we drink iced coffee: often and happily. How could we not? An icon in the fashion world, Glamour has been on the forefront of women’s style for more than 75 years—when they spot a trend, you can be sure you’ll be seeing it on the most fashionable women in the world shortly after. So, when we teamed up with them to collaborate on a limited edition Original Universal, we knew we were going to do something special. The result? A beautiful mash-up of rich traditions—luxe snakeskin embossed white leather straps, a shimmery metallic finish, and our iconic sandal architecture. We don’t mean to toot our own horns, but it’s the perfect summer sandal that makes for an effortless transition from the art museum to latte run to cocktail hour.
“When March Jacobs and Prada sent spruced up sports sandals down their spring runways, we knew we were witnessing a major retrend in the making. So how about an exclusive [collaboration] from the original maker of the style, Teva?” writes Christina Pérez in the July 2014 issue of Glamour Magazine, which features the limited-edition sandal. Here, her tips for styling the collaboration sandal:
How to Wear Them:
1. Play up the sporty angle. Athletic-inspired clothing is a huge trend this summer; try silk track pants or a mesh T-shirt.
2. Embrace the ’90s vibe—also a huge trend this summer. Teva sandals look playful when paired with a breezy sundress or romper.
3. When in doubt, stick to streamlined shapes in neutral hues. Nothing is chicer than a well-fitting outfit in all black or all white—ever.
4. Teva’s Style Tip: Purveyors of cool are the ones daring enough to debunk style myths—so ditch everything you know about socks and sandals. The much-derided combination is both unexpected and uniquely cool (when you do it right, of course).
