Sneakers are trending, so it’s time to leave those heels at home and opt for something a little more comfortable. Sneakers are cool and simplistic, creating a unique and unexpected element to any outfit, dressy or casual.
TIP #1 For a casual daytime look pair a basic pair of dark denim skinnies, tapered at the ankle are perfect for rocking the sneaker trend. If you’re wanting to be a bit more dressy just adjust the color palette and try sneakers teamed with an all-black ensemble. The real key is confidence anyone can pull off this trend if they are confident in what they’re wearing.
TIP #2 Simplicity is very important when styling your cool-girl look, especially if the sneakers are colorful or graphic. The key is to start with a neutral palette especially if you have never attempted this trend before.
TIP #3 You can wear them with a dress or skirt, just be careful of the length. In my opinion slip-ons work the best, especially for beginner sneaker stylists. These are easy to wear, super chic and go with anything, plus they look great in a leopard print!
TIP #4 Make sure you always cuff those pants and show your ankle a little, otherwise the look becomes sloppy. Since the sneakers are so casual you want to make sure the length and proportions of the denim are on point so your outfit is clean and balanced.
TIP #5 Don’t wear socks, or at least don’t let them show. This again adds an unneeded element to your ensemble which can make your cool-girl outfit appear sloppy.
