I’m seeing fashion sneakers everywhere but I don’t know if I can pull them off. Any styling tips?
Fashion sneakers are one of the easiest ways to incorporate the sporty trend seen everywhere this spring. We picked out our top three ways to wear those stylish (and comfortable!) sneaks.
THE WEDGE SNEAKER
Attitude: Playful, feminine, and sporty.
Wear with: A pastel blazer inserts feminine appeal while silk shorts balance the sporty feel. Bold graphics on a tee match the boldness of the shoe and a pop of colorful jewelry ties it all together.
Avoid: Showing too much skin. Anything too short and tight and this look can quickly veer into Pretty Woman territory.
THE BOYISH SNEAKER
Attitude: Skate-inspired, tough, and easygoing.
Wear with: A casual skirt balances out the masculinity of the high top, and a striped tank plays up the graphics on the shoe. Spiked gold jewelry finishes the punkish look.
Avoid: An overdose of oversized. Fitted silhouettes keep this style from becoming too masculine.
THE BEACH SNEAKER
Attitude: Island-feel, beachy, undone.
Wear with: A denim bra top under an open chambray shirt embodies the spirit of island ease. Flowing palazzo pants and antiqued jewelry top off the warm-weather ensemble.
Avoid: Looking too young. A mature top and raw jewelry keep the sweet shoes from looking girlish.
