I LOVVEEE a good dress & heel combo, but sometimes a girl’s gotta wear sneakers – and that doesn’t mean you have to dress things down! A few years ago sneaker trend started popping up everywhere in the fashion world, making it not only okay to wear sneaks with your favorite skirt, but praise-worthy. When a trend like this comes around, I take full advantage and wear it till it ties – which will hopefully not be any time soon.Since athletisure has transcended the fad stage and moved into a fully acceptable style section, the kick & dress combo has in turn followed. Investing in a chic pair of sneaks can do wonders for your wardrobe, and your toes!
Swapping out your stilettos for a sick pair of sneakers can be easy:
1 – Start with a statement piece (like this twirl worthy skirt)
2 – Dress it down with a cool basic, like a white body suit or tucked in tee. A crop top and leather jacket would also work if the weather permits.
3 – Bring the drama with a bold lip, quirky accessory or both! I opted for the duo by pairing my signature ruby woo with a red leather backpack with DIY details. I took my favorite red backpack up a notch by adding leather stickers and a pom pom key chain – the stickers are relatively inexpensive and can be an easy way to revamp an old favorite!
4 – After you look is complete, just add sneakers and viola, an effortlessly chic look fit for the streets.If you haven’t given this trend a twirl, what are you waiting for! I suggest you invest in some cool kicks ASAP, give your toes a break and start your twirling!
