Ways To Wear Your Sneakers
One thing to keep in mind regarding the sneakers is that they are rather casual and edgy. To make the most out of it, it’s stylish to balance the shoes with preppier clothing pieces – such as a cute pair of socks. Socks in lace, a cute print, with ruffles, or a chic color are fun to match with your sneakers. Visible socks are also a statement itself and a trendy touch. So next time you work your sneakers, add the preppy socks!
A simple way to make leather more wearable is pairing it with sneakers as the shoes neutralizes the leather. Go for a pair of pants in leather, or a skirt, and notice the clash of the statement material and the sneakers. A white t-shirt, a black leather skirt and a pair of fun sneakers must be one of the best outfits this summer!
Another way you can make the sneakers clash is if you pair it with a dress. Preferably one that’s trendy as it adds energy with the floral prints, the colors and the ruffles. The more formal look of the dress is a fun balance with the casual sneakers as it creates an eclectic look. Also a comfortable match if you’re out traveling and you need shoes you can rely on for the day. Catch more travel tips in this post.
Sneakers are the very core of the street style fashion but also sports fashion is you ask me. You can highlight this style by adding the energetic colors. I’m talking the fun neon colors but also the primary colors that are typical of the 1980s fashion. By adding some popping shades you’ll embody the style of the sneakers, which will create a more coherent look. Also, sneakers are often rather neutral which makes them a favorable choice of shoes when trying the energetic shades.
Finally! The sneakers are a favorable match with the midi lengths. I know that I usually talk about wearing simple shoes with the midi lengths, such as a nude color or something the elongates your legs. But, it’s also fun to make it look awkward with the sneakers. There’s an unfavorable, yet stylish, clash, that’s interesting to explore. So don’t be afraid to try this the next time!

I ADORE SNEAKERS and I can’t be happier about its big comeback! They are comfortable and it is good to see that brands are realizing many options, ’cause a few years ago they were associated with everything but not with fashion specifically. I agree with all the options you mentioned here, but they specially look good with some blazer, color block or with a print 😉
So true that the sneakers have a better position in the fashion world today. Adore it!! Xx
I was in sneakers most of the weekend, so you’re making me feel trendy 😉 I tried an energetic color (purple), which was surprisingly easier to style than I thought? Love the idea of statement socks too! xx
Hahah yay that’s great!Oh that sounds lovely, we need a pic! Xx
Oh yes, midi length can look SO stylish with trainers! It took me a long time to come around to the idea of wearing trainers in a more ‘stylish’ way (as opposed to just the gym and for running haha), but I’m certainly now warming to the idea 🙂 Hope you have a fabulous week Mia!
I think you’d work the look so well Gabrielle! Looking forward to seeing some outfits 😉 Xx
I was such a sneaker junkie in HS, but went the complete opposite end of the spectrum when I went to college, training my sneakers for heels. Now, I’m more open to the idea of wearing sneakers, as they’re so much more practical for me as a new mom. Plus, they’re trending, so they’re so many different styles to choose from. I have a couple and would like to build a collection of some sort. I’ve been loving the styles I’ve been seeing from Balenciaga! I love the idea of wearing them with fishnet, as well as dresses and colorful suits. Thanks for sharing this great inspo with us, beautiful. I hope you had a great weekend!
