Celebrities and models usually just want to be low-key and rest their toes during their down time. And guess what? Even Victoria Beckham who used to only be seen in heels is now devoted to the sneaker culture, so it’s just time to get acquainted with the sneaker trend once again. Nowadays, expect sneaker brands to release clean and monotone silhouettes that aren’t just functional and comfortable, but also relevant by using unexpected materials like veg tan, merino wool, and suede calfskin, definitely a number of choices for the newly converted sneaker head like you.
See what the girls are sporting nowadays and go shop for a pair—or four—and make it your own.
Jersey dresses and tennis shoes just go together like gooey marshmallows and hot choco on a cold day. It’s like the fashion gods have finally answered our prayers since comfort is now a staple in the fashion world and there are no signs of it being a passing trend. Keep your favorite sneakers in rotation with pairings like Saab’s patterned hoodie and dress, or a button-down half-tucked into feathered-hem jeans, and you’ve got an off-duty look that seriously can’t be beat.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match a feminine top with a bold black-and-white canvas slip-on like Michelle. The unexpected choice of footwear for a boho cami? Sneakers! Pairing masculine and feminine elements make for a great sporty chic look. The classic Vans sneaks just got a recent makeover, now releasing new silhouettes that involve no laces and no buckles: the slip-on mule. It’s for people who want something even more convenient than sneakers.
If you look at the feet of the world’s most photographed street style stars, you will undoubtedly spot pairs of sneakers that definitely ace the shoe game. Cop Maxene’s laidback ensemble as she brings together a Vero Moda camisole top, comfy jeans, a Balenciaga Classic City bag, and all-white Stan Smiths. With its high risk of stains and dirt, you may want to trust the tried-and-true methods of the experts in maintaining their classic pair of whites or keep a Tide To-Go pen in your purse.
Embrace your inner tomboy with tanks and jeans. Why not, right? You can keep your trainers classic like Christiana’s classic Chuck Taylors in navy or get a constant update with its new colorways that are introduced each season. So during the summer, before you even think about whipping out your wedges and espadrilles, why not consider a pair that will make anything, from wide-leg trousers to flowy midi skirts, 100 times cooler?
No wonder everybody loves white sneakers. The tonal colorways just look so fresh and relevant with any type of styling which is pretty convenient when you want to have that little sartorial oomph once in a while. Lace-up rubber shoes in white color schemes are the perfect weekend shoe, especially when paired with ladylike hems, like jeans or striped dresses.
Properly foray into the sneaker zone as you try non-intimidating pairs like the Super Limited Glow in the Dark New Era x New Balance kicks, which Yassi sports. If you’re particularly OC or just not patient enough to scrub your rubber soles, stick to patent leather, rubber, or snakeskin for easy maintenance.
