I have a “sneaky” little feeling you are loving the sneaker trend as much as I am….right? What’s your go-to sneaker style? My Converse sneakers have definitely been my sneaker style this summer, especially at the airport and on vacation.
Speaking of the airport, you can’t beat the comfort and practicality of a loafer sneaker. Not TSA approved? Yikes…then you will definitely want to wear shoes you can easily slip on and off. Dolce Vita’s black and white woven slip-on will give your sneaker ensemble a sophisticated look. We are also crazy about Steve Madden’s selection of quilted slip-on loafers….especially the pink ones! And slip-on Converse sneakers are not only airport friendly but also super cute.
Printed sneakers are another way to add a comfy flair to your everyday style. From plaids to animal print, these fun kicks will easily transition into fall. With a pair of Chiko or Converse plaid sneakers, this casual trend never looked so hip. Though, if I’m perfectly honest, I have to admit animal print sneakers are my absolute favorite! A grey blazer, t-shirt, and jeans paired with animal print sneakers is a great fall transition style.
Have you ever worn sneakers to work? For years, working women have been wearing sneakers when walking to and from the train in cities. The difference today is they wear them all day long. Think about saying hello to Monday with a plaid pantsuit and white Converse sneakers. Want to look effortlessly chic at the office? Then you will certainly want to match a pair of sneakers to your skirt or dress. And be sure to check out all the cute options on our Pinterest board!
Do you have an “out of the office” style? I figured you did! A cool way to update this look is by wearing a pair of light blue jeans, black sweater, and black Converse sneakers to your next meeting at Starbucks. And we’re loving the photo on our Pinterest board that shows a working girl wearing a checked dress while trading out her heels for sneakers….so out-of-the-office smart!
Do you count your steps? Good for you! When I visited New York this summer, I made a special trip to the Allbirds store in SoHo to see what the shoe buzz was all about. After trying on and purchasing a pair of their gray loafer sneakers, let’s just say….I’m a believer! Besides being water resistant and ultra-comfortable, you do not have to wear socks with them! How awesome is that? Not only do I wear them when I’m counting my steps, but also with jeans and a blazer….the perfect sneaker for any season.
Today’s brides and bridesmaids have absolutely got the sneaker style down. We love how Kate Spade gives a classic pair of Ked’s a heaping dose of sparkle. A rubber-soled sneaker is not only suited for the sidewalk but also the dance floor. So the next time you plan to dance the night away, whether at a wedding reception or a honky-tonk, think about wearing some sparkly Keds.
If you are getting a “kick” out of this article, then that tells me you are ready to jump into the sneaker trend! Have fun and enjoy your new kicks!
