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. Here are some easy tips on how to 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.

    I’ve been wearing sneakers for years, I tend to love my New Balance 410 and Adidas Gazelle the most. They go with everything! I like how you paired yours with a dress, super pretty!

    One of my closest friends LIVES in sneakers and she always looks so cute. I’ve been wanting to try it! Plus, I’m guessing it’s sooo much more comfy than heels, right?! Love that dress by the way.

    I think this is the first time I see you in sneakers – you look cute in them! I am not a huge fan of the sneakers trend and not really ever wear sneakers (expect for when I go running ;))
    Thanks so much for last comment! It makes me super happy to read that you like my food posts! 🙂
