Sandals get all the glory as the iconic shoes for summer, but when you need shoes that will take you all over town, up and down the boardwalk, or out for a day of sightseeing, sandals just won’t cut it. That’s where good old fashioned sneakers come in; but good old fashioned doesn’t have to be boring! Here’s how to elevate your sneaker style this summer:
T-shirt Dress and Running Sneakers
What’s more casual and relaxed than a t-shirt dress? They’re great for exploring the city when you’re on vacation, using as a swimsuit cover up on the beach, and heading out to brunch with friends. While you might be tempted to reach for a pair of sandals to pair with a t-shirt dress, sneakers are the perfect complement and the comfort-conscious option. Any sneaker will do, but try to vary up the color; for example, if your dress is black, go with a white sneaker.
Low Top Sneakers and Short Skirts
When you want to wear sneakers with a skirt that’s thigh length or shorter, you might like the look of low tops better than high tops. High tops and short skirts have a skater look to them thanks to the popularity of the combination in the days when skater style was popular. Low tops are a bit more grown up and pair well with short skirts without appearing juvenile.
Palazzo Pants with White Sneakers
Palazzo pants can be tricky enough to style on their own. How do you pair them with a top that won’t make you look baggy or like you’re wearing rags? What footwear will make a statement without being swallowed up by yards of fabric? For palazzo pants that are ankle-length and longer, try a pair of bright white sneakers in any cut or style of your choice. Not only will you be cool and comfortable in palazzo pants, your feet will be pain-free even after a full day running errands and spending time with the family!
Technically, sneakers can be worn with just about anything. But when you’re after a unique style that you won’t see on everyone else and not just the been-there-done-that outfits, one of these looks is the way to go!
