If the only pair of sneakers that you own is for the purpose of exercise, from a fashion perspective, that’s bittersweet. On one hand, it’s awesome that you are working out (your clothes will look so much better on you because of it). On the other, you’re missing out on all of the ways that you can make them quite the fashion statement.
So, the next time you’ve got $50 to spare—pardon the pun—run out and get a new pair of sneakers.
In just a few moments, you’ll see why.
Do you own a pair of flare jeans? If so, put on a pair of canvas sneakers will them. You’ll be fashionable and comfortable too.
With a maxi dress and hat
Whether it’s canvas, high top or wedge sneakers, they all will go well with a maxi dress. Especially if you go for a neutral dress and bright shoe. (Eye-catching, wouldn’t you say?)
Oversized sweatshirt and jeans
If you have an oversized sweatshirt, some printed jeans and bright wedge heels will take it from frumpy to fabulous!
Until you saw this picture, you may have never dreamed of putting a lace baby dolls dress together with some canvas sneakers. Now do you see why it’s a super cute look?
Business suit sneaker savvy
If you live in a city that has great public transportation, you might already be used to wearing sneakers to work. But this outfit shows that you can easily keep them on all day long. If you want.
Leather (or pleather) leggings
Wedge sneakers and leggings go really well together. Especially if the leggings are leather (or even pleather).
A cute flare mini skirt
Doesn’t she look adorable? The flare mini skirt, the jean jacket and the hair bun help to make the canvas sneakers look—intentional.
A maxi skirt
If you want to wear your maxi skirt but you don’t feel like putting on a pair of heels, put on some wedge sneakers instead. You’ll still get the height of a heel without the discomfort that comes with long-term wear.
A neutral suede wedge is well worth every penny. This picture shows why.
Some boyfriend jeans
Do you have some boyfriend jeans? If so, some Adidas or Reeboks will go really well with them. Just ask your boyfriend.
A T-shirt dress
T-shirt dresses are perfect for sneakers. White canvas ones or Converse high tops will work just fine.
A tank and pair of drawstring capris
This look is so laid back and sexy too. The main thing to remember with a casual outfit like this one is to accessorize. The chain necklace and hoops really help to set it off.
Cool for cold weather
When it’s cold outside and you want a way to insulate your feet, wedge sneakers will keep you warm while making sure that you look super hot.
Cut-off jeans and Jordans
This is a great summertime outfit whether you’re hanging out with friends at the mall or heading to a vacation.
Sneakers that sparkle
If you want your sneakers to have a bit more pizzazz, get ones that come with some glitter (sparkle). You can buy some made that way or you can go to your favorite search engine and put “DIY glitter sneakers” in the search field.
Some shorts and over-the-knee socks
When the temperatures start to drop below freezing but you’re not quite ready to give up your shorts, put on some opaque tights or over-the-knee-socks. You’ll stay warm and still look amazing.
Black from head to toe
Rocker chic. This is what comes to mind with a look like this. If you’re the kind of gal who likes wearing all black, this would definitely be the way to do it. From head to toe.
Leggings and Leather
Leggings and leather are a super combination. All you need to add to them are some sneaks.
Layers for fall
Although a lot of people tend to lean more towards boots for fall, don’t put away your sneakers just yet. Whenever you’re layering a look, they’ll go quite well with it.
Velvet and wedges
Did you ever think that you would hear someone say “velvet” and “wedges” the same sentence? If you’re going to attempt this look, don’t go for a conservative style of sneakers. Look for a color or pattern that are unique and vibrant.
Pictures like these remind us why canvas sneakers work well with everything—including bridal wear. Whether it’s for the ceremony, pictures or the reception, get a pair. And while you’re at it, get a pair for your sweetie too!
