If there’s something that the street style snaps from recent fashion months have confirmed, it’s that the style set really loves sneakers. And we’re not surprised: Aside from the obvious benefits like being simple to walk in, kicks give any outfit that “I’m just running to the before party” vibe we’re always after.
While we love a good heel, sneakers are like an instant chill pill for any such thing typically deemed too fancy to wear outside a ballroom — i.e., all you see on the streets during fashion week. Nevertheless the sneaker movement is clearly a lot more, because what’s more liberating than choosing comfort over conformity?
This season, it’s all about suit outfits. Whilst the classic pinstripe set may possibly feel a tad too stuffy for anything but a business meeting, fresh white kicks give it wear-anywhere potential.
A loose, long-sleeved dress and walkable, colored shoe combo makes it simple to do the day-to-night switch — without an outfit change. Outfits like these are very easy breezy and spot on.
Proof that sneakers pair well with fancy things, like silk. To keep your vibe low-key but nonetheless interesting, style the polished skirt with a logo T-shirt knotted at the waist and minimal accessories.
Track pants and jogging shoes: a classic love story. Quirk it up with a velvety blue mini satchel and red pom-pom earrings for a getup that’s more sartorial than sporty.
