A classic case of transference from sport to vogue, sneakers is go-to footwear. It is tough to believe they were originally designed for physical activity. Yeah, right! And now they are everywhere. And not only with the tried and tested jeans look. Any outfit planner will tell you to include them in your collection, and that’s why we are going to teach you how to rock your sneakers.
In fact, they have easily transcended the fashion barrier. Turn the pages of any fashion magazine, they are there. Chicisimo has countless looks featuring them. Celebrities are sporting them, literally. Even royalty is rooting for sneakers. Kate Middleton, to be precise.
What are the different ways to rock the sneaker look? You can actually wear them with any outfit in your wardrobe. Here is a look at some ways to use them. Watch your cool quotient and style meter zoom. Let’s learn how to rock your sneakers with these tips:
By far the most stylish sneakers, they are a class apart. Do not have any in your collection yet? What are you waiting for? Your outfit planner will endorse cropped jeans with these. Converse in bold colours with white laces all the way up is a style staple. They have such a distinct look. Pick up any denim from your wardrobe to go with these. White jeans would look ultra cool. With a pop of colour in the top, you are sure to own this look. Converse shoes might not always be high on comfort though. Make sure you walk around in them before going out. Fidgeting in your outfit will do nothing for your style. And be prepared to put in some time lacing them all the way up.
The trend of wearing your sneakers with dresses was set rolling by royalty. Literally! Kate Middleton has made this style relatable with her choices. It seems her wardrobe is full of outfits commoners relate to. And she has set the trend for sneakers too. There are hundreds of visuals of her in dresses with sneakers. Not only she, many fashionistas and celebs are seen sporting this look. White is the predominant colour but everything goes. The sheer comfort of sneakers gets people hooked. Your outfit planner can suggest between low or high ankle types. This will of course depend on the type of dress. More and more people are opting for sneakers with dresses. You will rock the look too.
Sneakers come in all shades and all colours now. There are fluorescent streaks popping up too. Not only in fashionable avatars but in sporty ones as well. Sportspersons have been setting trends, in fact. Who can forget Usain Bolt and his special footwear! All metallic might not be what you look for. Not always, anyway. But certainly a touch of sparkle, a pop of colour helps. Go through Chicisimo to find out what is trending. You will get an idea what to pair your colourful sneakers with. The obvious choice seems white. Think an all white outfit that is perfectly summery! Add to this colour sneakers and you really need nothing else. You can pair them with any colour jeans. Match them with a dress or a skirt and top. That’s how you rock your sneakers!
White all the way
The coolest look by far! The winner hands down. All white might not be anything new. That does not stop it from upping the fashion quotient any day. White sneakers go with everything. You can blindly pick up a top from your wardrobe, and then go for jeans or a skirt or shorts with it. Finishing with white sneakers gives your outfit that cool look. It is simple and elegant. No worries if you are going for an all white dress either. You can always add colour by way of a belt. Or a colourful sling bag! How about a checked shirt over a white spaghetti? In fact, anything that catches your fancy.
A surprising and rocking combination. Pair your sneakers with cropped leather pants. The effect will wow you. And others, of course! This is a raging trend and your outfit planner will vouch for it too. Whether you are wearing denim tops or white shirt really does not matter. Pull on your leather pants from your wardrobe and grab a pair of sneakers. You are ready to hit the roads, lady! Take care to pick a colour to go with the overall look. Coordinate it well. But not always. Which means, do not always go for a too-coordinated look. At times planned chaos works best. Choose your outfit with abandon and rock it.
Most workplaces endorse Friday dressing. Finally it feels like the weekend. Casual sets in right then. And what better way to reinforce casual comfort than with sneakers? Most of you would have mastered this look by now. In case there is any confusion, go back to jeans and sneakers. That is the most trusted and reliable. Sneakers spell comfort and are casual too. At the same time, they are not overly so. You can pair them with your jeans or cropped khakis beautifully.

Chunky sports sneakers
Quite the in thing are chunky sneakers. Pair them with feminine outfits from your wardrobe. The contrast will only highlight the look. You can wear them with midis and cropped pants too. They lend a very relaxed look. Add a touch of glamour with colourful socks. Your outfit planner will be able to suggest best ones. A hint of these socks peeping out is a stealer. Wear these in different colours depending upon your outfit. If you are wearing something very colourful, keep the chunkies to whites. If the outfit is monotone, choose colourful chunkies. You get the drift here, right? This is kind of a throwback trend but it is gaining ground.
Have you already learn how to rock your sneakers? It’s easy-peasey. Get down to enhancing your collection. The right socks and good choice of outfit will add to the appeal.
