For most of us, there are days when we can’t say no to a sky-high pair of heels and there are other days when we just want to throw on a low-key outfit and head out the door. Luckily, sneakers of all sorts have been having a moment in the spotlight lately which means our dreams of going low-key are now a reality. With that said, today’s Style Spy story is dedicated to exploring three different types of low-key kicks and how you can wear them. So, what are you waiting for? Click inside to discover all the details on how to get your kicks with, well, kicks. Read on!
We know we can always count on Rihanna to show us how a look is done—and the outfit above is no exception. This outfit—a varsity jacket, jeans, and flat low-top sneakers—is perfect for a day of running errands followed by a quick coffee with friends. To put together a similar look, pick out a varsity jacket with a fashion-forward twist—we like Obey’s Varsity Lover Jacket ($129)—and pair it with your fave blue jeans. Then, simply add a pair of Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers ($50) or Vans’ Lo Pro Sneakers ($45) and you’re all set.
While Rihanna opted for a classic pair of sneakers, Miranda has picked out a pair of on-trend wedge sneakers—a style that is definitely having a major moment right now. By pairing them with just a simple striped tee and jeans, Miranda allows her kicks to take the limelight. To try a look like this, pair Truly Madly Deeply’s Striped Deep Scoopneck Tee ($29) and Siwy’s Hannah Slim Ankle Jeans ($196). To complete the look, pick up a pair of wedge sneakers like Ash’s Bea Wedge Sneakers ($250), Serafini’s Manhattan Limited Edition Wedge Sneakers ($370), or Monika Chiang’s Artemys Sneakers ($385).
While Rihanna and Miranda’s outfits are certainly casual, we think Selena’s is slightly more laidback—but that doesn’t mean she has sacrificed her style for comfort. On the contrary, her slip-on sneakers give her outfit an effortlessly cool vibe, which is augmented by her chic accessories—namely, the scarf and studded handbag. To try a similarly cool look, pair a black tee with Current/Elliott’s Boyfriend Crop Jeans ($174) and Express’s Open Dobby Weave Infinity Scarf ($24). Then, pick up either Keds’ Champion Laceless Sneakers ($45) or Vans’ Classic Slip-On Sneakers ($68) and you’re set.
