When we hear sneakers, we think of the athletic activities like playing basketball or running. This is not always the case. There are different looks that one can get paired with sneakers. Knowing how to pair your sneakers depends on the kind of sneaker you have and what you intend to do that day. Here are a few tips to looking your best in sneakers.
Casual: this look with sneakers is probably one of the easiest to pull off. It has to be done the right way though. This means pairing a pair of sneakers with those cargo pants you wear once in a while and T-shirt.
With Jeans: another way of pulling off the casual look is combining jeans and sneakers. It is always a great choice. However, skinny jeans and sneakers combination can be tricky because the jeans will taper down and end up hugging your ankles making your feet look bigger than usual. When pairing with skinny jeans ensure that the jeans is high enough above the ankle.
Dresses and skirt: The first instinct to a shoe choice for dresses and skirt is probably heels or wedges. Flats are even more acceptable compared to sneakers. Celebrities like Kristen Stewart have broken the boundaries with red carpet appearance involving sneakers. For a fun look, wear black leggings underneath the short dress and shirt and then make a great combination with a pair of converse (probably high tops). You can go all out by adding a lightweight jacket, depending on the weather.
Athletes need to wear sneaker all the time when they are performing their sports but this doesn’t mean that we should not have a pair or two in your closet. They will always be in fashion and when paired with the right outfit, you will look great no matter what.
