Styling a Dress with Sneakers

July 17, 2017

I am kind of obsessed with this dress. The cut (v-neck, fitted at the waist, flows out gracefully) is one that flatters every body type. I love the print. The paper airplanes are just so fun. Like a nod to childhood in a grown up dress. Anyway, I was debating on how to style it. I first tried on heels. That’s typically my go-to with a dress, but somehow it just felt a little too dressy. Then I thought about the whole styling a dress with sneakers thing. This fun blush velvet pair has been a favorite since I got them, and I loved how they dressed down my look.

Have you tried the whole sneakers with a dress trend? What I love about it is how it lends versatility to your wardrobe. I can now wear this dress much more casually with just the change of a shoe. I’m thinking it would be super cute like this (or with booties) with a long cardigan as it gets cooler too. Or I can easily style it for a date night with a strappy sandal. Win-win for maximizing your wardrobe.

Also, don’t forget about the Nordstrom sale happening. You can see all my picks here.

    Paper airplanes, I’d love that. What a fun dress. Love those gorgeous earrings too. The earrings and bag match the dress to perfection. Last Summer I did a lot of dresses with sneakers and before this Summer is over, I need to do that as well.

  • This is one of my favorite styling tricks. I love how sneakers dress down a girly look
