Wooden clogs are probably the most unglamorous shoes on the planet — that is, if you don’t know how to wear them right. After all, they say nothing in fashion is ugly.

And when it comes to those clogs, all you need is a good scarf or oversized wrap to make them look chic and elegant. This tip is from our favorite supermodel of all timeKate Moss.

The British waif, who took the fashion scene by storm in the 90s and is now considered a modern-day icon thanks to her unique bohemian-rocker style, was spotted sporting a pair of clogs and a huge blanket topper while exiting her home in London last week.

She wore the combo with skinny black jeans folded at the hem, dark eyewear, and a stunning snake-print purse. Kate looked simple but very much put together — even in a pair of clogs.

See, as we said, to work a pair of clogs and make them look posh, you must wear them with pieces that up the ante.

In this case, Kate dressed up the clogs by simply adding an oversized patterned wrap to her outfit. Also, note that small details matter—like that snake-print Balenciaga purse and her dark cat-eye sunglasses.
