Who doesn’t love looking chic and dressing comfortably at the same time!? Dressing in style doesn’t have to mean wearing uncomfortable shoes. And let’s face it — no one feels confident or chic wobbling around in painful shoes. Well, lucky us sneakers are back! AND in a brand new way! Sneakers are so easy to wear, and in retro styles, fun prints, and cool textures, you are sure to look ultra-fab. With so many options out there, I have compiled a list of my favorites to help you rock this sneaker trend in style!
From top left, clockwise — Kate Spade New York ‘Serena’ Slip-on Sneaker in blush, Joie Kidmore Sneakers in dusty pink sand, Joie Kidmore Sneakers in leopard, Miu Miu Metallic Cap-Toe Sneakers in black.
Move over, uncomfortable flats. Slip-on sneakers are taking over. This sporty upgrade screams effortlessly cool and goes with basically everything! You can pair them with boyfriend jeans and a blazer to add an edgy vibe to your look, or with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater for a chic, effortless look. Add a structured coat to create a ‘pulled together’ look.
From top left, clockwise — New Balance 574 Precious Metals Sneakers in charcoal/rose gold, Kenneth Cole Dewey Crackled-Leather Sneaker in gold/black, Loeffler Randall Rio Sneaker in cheetah mix, Steve Madden Trackk Jogger Sneakers in silver foil.
With so many color options and print details, the possibilities are endless! The key to wearing retro sneakers is to mix it up. You should pair them with pieces you wouldn’t normally wear sneakers with such as leather pants, a pencil skirt, or a fun dress. By wearing them ironically, the sneakers make these dressier pieces more casual and daytime-ready.
