It was a hot one in Fall Creek Falls, TN on the first official day at @charlavail‘s Camp Gritty. As temperatures were rising, campers kept it cool with shorts, T’s, and of course Vans. Shop their camp style below…
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.

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.
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.
Tired of wearing the same old thing every weekend? Then listen up. Sneakers go with everything - literally, everything - so it’s time to get creative and start pairing your Converse with some new threads. Dress them up or down and invest in some new styles to get even more use out of the cult favorite sneaker. See how five guys wore theirs and shop their looks below.
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.
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.
