When it comes to fashion, it’s nearly impossible to find an outfit that’s both elegant and comfortable. Sneakers are handy and effortless, but who says they can’t be elegant and stylish as well? The sneakers and dress trend has really become popular and for a good reason – it looks amazing and feels even better.
For those who are still not sure how to pair up sneakers with dresses and skirts, here are a few easy tips to try.
Make it shine
The best way to make a statement is to keep things simple and emphasize a single thing: such as statement jewelry, lipstick and of course – shoes or sneakers. Wear all black: tights, a skirt, a jacket, a hoodie and a bag and in the end simply wear brightly colored sneakers. That way, the color will pop and you will be elegant, discreet, yet memorable in your extraordinary outfit.
Animal print is awesome!
When wearing animal print, you should be careful not to go over the top. It can be tricky trying to find balance, but there is a foolproof way to wear it nonetheless: pair your animal print sneakers with your skirt and rock it.
This means that your skirt will have to be plain, just as your bag, but your skirt and sneakers will rock! Leopard, tiger, zebra – irrelevant, as long as you like it! Discreet jewelry and a nice pair of sunglasses will complete this chic and wild look.
Casual and elegant
If you’re looking for a way to express both your masculine and feminine side, you can wear a bit bolder version of the dress combined with custom dress shirts borrowed from your boyfriend with simple converse sneakers and see how you can rock this, boyish, yet very elegant look. A plain skirt worn as a dress combined with bright red lipstick and matching sneakers will emphasize your playfulness. In case it gets cold, you can always add tights and a leather jacket to keep you warm and make you look edgy.
LBD and sneakers? Why not!
Wearing your favorite little black dress during the daytime has never been this easy, just put on a pair of simple black sneakers and a bright bag in order not to look too dark. You can pull off this look in your office as well, just remember to wear a cardigan too for a more professional look.
Rocking chiffon like a boss
Wearing chiffon without looking like a bridesmaid is a bit tricky to pull off, but add some edge to it and in the blink of an eye you will look like a biker chick. Wear a maxi chiffon skirt with a plain white shirt, a pair of big, reflective sunglasses, a grab-and-go clutch purse and a pair of black converse sneakers. Add bright lipstick and a messy bun or a casual French plait and you’re ready to own the streets!
Just imagine: having no blisters whatsoever after a long night of partying and getting noticed everywhere for thinking outside the box. Being feminine, stylish and comfortable has never been this easy, so don’t be afraid to experiment with your outfits.
