I shared a recent wild colored, 90’s inspired pair of sneakers that I got off Amazon and you all went nuts over them! I mean, I don’t blame you, they’re amazing. I got a question about how to style these so I figured why not do a post based around how to wear bold sneakers. It’s a trend that’s out there, and not just for the gym, and I’m here for it.
I have a few tips for you on styling bold sneakers so I hope you find this post helpful. I style sneakers casually. I never wear sneakers with anything other than comfortable, casual looks so those are the tips I’m giving. Enjoy!
Pick your favorite pair of distressed blue denim and pick a looser more casual neutral colored top like black or white. You can also choose any shade of grey, tan or khaki if it works with your shoes. This look gives off a very causal, comfy, I’m off to run errands vibe.
Pick your favorite pair of black or white denim and wear a contrasting, but neutral, casual top. This look is a little more put together for a quick lunch or shopping trip. You could also sub the colored denim for a pair of leggings or joggers to be even more comfortable.
Monochromatic. Wear all of one color in a neutral. I would wear my sneakers with all black to really let the sneakers pop! This would look great with leggings and a longer tunic top for a walk around the neighborhood. Another great casual option is black high waisted denim with either a black cropped top or a top that I can knot in the front.
Pick a color that is in the shoe. By wearing a color other than a neutral, that is in the shoe it keeps you eyes moving through your whole look and makes you look more put together.
Wear them with a dress or skirt. Follow tips 1-3 for styling with a skirt (also with shorts). A dress makes this so easy. I would style these with a casual and very simple black dress for a day out and about.
Accessorize. Take any tip above and accessorize your look with colors in the shoe. I have an orange belt that looks great with these sneakers, add a colored earring, bracelet, purse etc. You get the point. : )
Thank you all so much for reading. Until next time,
