After years of comically high and impractical heels, comfort is winning through with classic, wearable and sporty footwear. Sporty looks are indeed dominating fashion magazines and blogs, with more and more women leaving their heels at home and opting for the cool simplicity of sneakers.
No longer are sneakers just for sports, this trend have been seen all over the runways and have instantly made their way onto the streets. Whether it’s high-tops, low-tops, the more sporty style sneakers or the hidden wedge sneakers, everyone from the average girl to fashionista’s, celebrities to models have all been spotted sporting a pair of comfortable sneakers.
Some people may think sneakers are way too casual, but not anymore because there are many ways to look chic and polished when combining a pair of sneakers into your outfit. To add sophistication to your sneaker ensemble, wear them with tailored pieces like blazers, smart pants, coats and blouses, or go for a cute skirt or dress for something more girly. For a casual yet chic approach, team them with jeans such as boyfriend or skinny along with a cute cami or crop top. It’s always ideal to combine the sneakers into an outfit that includes fabrics like faux leather, silk and cashmere, so it doesn’t look like you’re heading to the gym.
Basically, you need to make sure the rest of your outfit is polished with clean lines, with no frumpy pants that sag over your cool sneakers.
Even if you don’t particularly fancy yourself the sporty type, we can guarantee the sneaker could officially become part of your go-to shoe selection. But when it comes to picking the perfect pair, don’t just go for any type of sneaker as you want people to know you’re actually wearing them as a fashion statement. So you should in fact go for a non-gym style and opt for something that is clean and flattering.
