How to Dress Up Your Sneakers

5 modern ways to style the casual sneaker

If the handfuls of sneaker-clad girls still flooding fashion blogs and websites is any indication, we’d say the tennis shoe trend is here to stay. By now, everyone from your favorite tastemakers to regular girls on the street have tested the comfy shoe with everything hanging in their closets. Be it a fur coat or a simple pair of black socks, we found some of the coolest new pairings that you can easily make your own - follow our style tips below and shop the looks you love.

1. Mix normcore basics with vintage pieces

We loved Tavi Gevinson’s creative style mashup of The Royal Tenenbaums and ’90s normcore at the season 4 premiere of “GIRLS.” Dress up a classic pair of sneakers and mom jeans with a plush coat and a buttoned-up button-down for an unexpected undone look.

2. Make the shoes a complete surprise

One of the best things about sneakers is that you can literally wear them with anything and still look great. For instance, the last thing you would expect this girl in a white sweater and long lace skirt to be wearing is a pair of red Converse high-tops - exactly the reason she looks so cool.

3. Wear your sneakers with chic staples

Stick to high-quality basics in neutral colors, and your throwback kicks will look supremely fresh. Plus, you won’t look like you’re trying too hard, which is always a bonus.

4. Style your worn white pair with black-on-black

Everyone has a scuffed-up pair of white tennis shoes that hang out in the back of the closet, but what you may not know is that they still have so much potential. Wear yours with a slouchy black sweater, skirt and matching socks for a modern update.

5. Grunge up feminine colors and fabrics

A pastel palette of girly and grungy separates can make for a street style-ready look. Pair a feminine skirt and matching socks with distressed denim and sneakers for an unpolished twist.

1. Go the relaxed route

Wear them with comfortable trousers or nice sweatpants in a rich color and a soft shirt for a laidback hipster look. Even better, pair them with a scruffy beard.

3. Put a spin on something dapper

A pair of oxfords or monk-strap shoes would have been the obvious choice here, but wearing white sneakers with a dark outfit of nice basics makes things much more interesting.

4. Do old-school cool in classic high-tops

High-top Converse give off a rock ‘n roll vibe that’s unmatched in newer, sleeker shoes. Pair them with rolled-up black jeans and a bomber jacket to complete the i’m-in-a-rock-band look.

5. Keep things simple and tailored

To avoid looking sloppy, wear a clean pair of chucks with cropped, tailored trousers and a fitted t-shirt. Simple accessories like a black belt, watch and classic sunglasses tie the relaxed look together.
