Sneakers are an essential wardrobe staple, and they offer more than just comfort – they’re on-trend, too. While they’re a great addition to your workout gear when you’re heading to the gym, they work with far more than just your gym clothes. Have a little fun with your sneakers and add some pep to your step by trying some of these exciting ways to style them.
1 – Add Sneakers to a Denim on Denim Look
Wearing denim on denim is in again, and according to Stylishly Me, the trick to pulling the look off is to mix up your denim washes and add a great pair of sneakers. Consider a bright red pair of sneakers to add some color or white sneakers always look great with denim. Grab a pair of aviators, and your outfit will be on point.
2 – Wear High Tops with Leggings or Skinny Jeans
High tops sneakers are perfect for everything from a fun night out with your friends to a day of running errands, and they’re loved by stars like Blake Lively and Miranda Kerr. They look especially great with a pair of leather leggings or your favorite skinny jeans and a cool leather moto jacket.
3 – Pair Them with Cuffed or Cropped Jeans to Show Some Ankle
Show a bit of ankle and make sure your sneakers really get to shine by wearing them with cuffed or cropped jeans. This works especially great if you’re donning a pair of statement sneakers in bright colors or fun patterns. This is the perfect time to skip the socks or go with low-rider socks, too.
4 - Add to a Short, Flirty Skirt or Skirt Suit
A bright pair of sneakers can make your legs look great. Try pairing them up with a short, flirty skirt that really lets those sexy legs stand out. Or offset a feminine skirt suit by adding a pair of chunky, throwback sneakers like Bella Hadid did.
5 – Tone Down Hot Neons with White Kicks
Neon colors are hot this year, but you don’t want to over-do your neon look. According to Glamour, white sneakers provide the perfect way to tone down your neon outfit just a bit. They add the perfect bit of cool and laid-back to a show-stopping, bright number.
6 – Sneakers and Denim Cutoffs
The Every Girl suggests putting together a pair of denim cutoffs and sneakers for a sporty-meets-boho look that’s wonderfully laid back and casual for summer. Whether you’re having drinks on the patio or strolling on the beach, this outfit is perfect. Add an off-the-shoulder, striped top and a pair of sunglasses to complete your look.
7 – Tone Down a Feminine Slip Dress
Make a feminine slip dress look effortlessly cool anytime by adding sneakers. Just make sure you keep the sneakers low-key. Plain white sneakers or laid-back metallic sneakers provide a crisp look that will offset a low-cut dress and offer a comfortable, summer vibe.
