How to Wear the Sneaker Trend

June 27, 2016

I love the sneaker trend. I mean, what woman doesn’t want comfy shoes to be all the rage? Even as a fashion obsessed person, I have wondered how to wear the sneaker trend. Somehow it seems like a cool girl look I cannot quite achieve, so I did some research (aka Pinterest searching). Thankfully KicksUSA gave me the opportunity to test my theories with these awesome floral Nike sneakers. I mean, how cool are they?! I’d been wanting a pair of Adidas, but when I saw these I knew they were the ones. KicksUSA has a great selection (men’s and kid’s included). They are also giving my readers a 10% discount. Just use the code “STRAIGHTASTYLE2016” at checkout. It seems like these never go on sale, so this is a great chance to snag a fun pair to try the trend or a new workout pair.Β Here are some easy tips on how toΒ wear the sneaker trend.

  1. Don’t over think it. Add sneakers to any outfit without worrying whether or not they “go.” Part of the trend is that people are wearing them with everything. I had to remind myself of this.
  2. The majority of times I have seen sneakers done well, the outfit itself isn’t over the top. Think basic items with the fashionable part being the shoes.
  3. Do the unexpected. My personal favorite way to style sneakers is with a dress or skirt. It’s the opposite pairing of casual and dressy that makes it cool.
  4. The “stylish” sneakers seem to have some white coloring and the more flat, skater look. I’m linking some great options below. Stay away from styling your running sneakers this way, and buy a pair purposely for casual wear.

P.S. This polka dot dress is so perfect for summer and only $22. I love the shoulder tie detail. Also, I grabbed these white sunnies for $5 on a whim, and I think I regret it. Nothing like blog pictures to let you know whether or not you made the right style decision.

    You look so fab and I think I need that polka dress especially at that price point!

    You look too adorable with the polka dot dress- actually the sneakers take down the girly factor a little bit and it just looks cool! I usually regret my impulse buys too – but honestly those sunnies are fun and perfect for a beach trip. Have a great week!

    I think you definitely nailed the sneakers and dress look. So cute. I absolutely love the polka dot dress. And who doesn’t love floral sneakers? Also, I think the sunnies are cute. Remember you are your own worst critic!

    Those sneakers are the prettiest! I’ve been wearing the sneaker trend matching loose pants & white sneakers. Also LOVE skirt/dress combos with them, especially your floral/polka dot dress pattern mixing. You’ve given some great style suggestions too. Happy Tuesday. XOXO,Elif
