Full disclosure: I don’t typically wear sneakers.
There, now that’s out, I hope you’ll let me explain why a sneaker-less stylist is talking about how to style sneakers. It’s not as strange as it sounds. I’ll start by saying that, all my life, I’ve been more Posh Spice than Sporty Spice.
I do not have a sporty bone in my body. I am a famously unathletic girl from a famously unathletic family, and so I’ve never given sneakers much thought. And then I started seeing them everywhere. With voluminous maxi skirts and simple cotton dresses. Adding color to dark neutral ensembles. Making feet everywhere happy.
Because, apparently, sneakers are comfortable, and women like comfort. You learn something new every day around here, right? Comfort is useful, especially when running around and living our crazy-busy-hectic lives. And that’s why the trend isn’t going anywhere. For as long as women have feet, sneakers with outfits will be a thing. But you need the right sneakers. Cute sneakers. And then you need ideas on how to wear them so they look like a deliberate choice and not like an afterthought. You’ll find all the inspiration you need right here.
