The Spring fashion rules for athletic shoes are simple: anything goes. Sneakers are the new “do” and we love it. Of course they’re more comfortable than your average shoe, but what matters is that there’s a sneaker out there to suit any fashion lover’s style. From boho chic, to vintage chic, to androgynous, wearing sneakers can ensure that you have one less outfit change in your overly scheduled life. Are you ready to sign up yet?
Like anything in fashion, there is an art to peeping your sneaks though – muted hues with more embellished items that help to keep the rest of your outfit understated if your sneakers are a bold (neon, anyone?) color, for example.
First Up: Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star Ballet Lace. These classic sneakers aren’t just reserved for the “ripped up jeans and a bomber” crowd anymore. Put a twist on your usual “girl about town” outfit and pair these charcoal oxfords with pleated culottes and a sleeveless cropped turtleneck in this season’s signature cool grey hues.
Nothing lets us know more that Spring is in fact, right around the corner, than Keds’ “Taylor Swift Eyelet Berry” in teal and white floral print. Keep it simple yet whimsical in a mint coloured skater skirt and light teal bralette.
One of our favourite trends is the skirt + tennis combo (that more and more people are rocking these days). As it’s usually standard to don your nicest pair of heels while wearing a skirt, you can avoid the inevitable tottering around that comes along with that by trading your stilettos for these light grey New Balance “515” lace up sneakers. Top off your look with a crisp white cotton blazer to keep heads turning while you strut in confidence and comfort.
