Love wearing sneakers, but don’t know how to make your sneakers look fashionable?
Sneakers, up until recently, were always considered a casual/sporty look, but you don’t always have to pair them with your laid-back outfits. Elevating sneakers is easier than you think – you just need the right ones and the right attire. Here’s some tips on how to make sneakers look fashionable, so you can rock them with all your favorite looks!
Purchase Fashionable Sneakers
Not all sneakers are made for working out or lounging around. Many brands have released sneakers that look high-fashion and unique, so why don’t you give them a try! Find ones made out of leather or suede, or sneakers with floral prints and embellishments like sequins and gems. You can pretty much buy sneakers from any of your favorite designers these days. Your shoes don’t have to be ordinary or boring to match your outfits!
Stick With The Classics
If you want to play it safe (and save some money!), then there’s nothing wrong with going with classic sneakers. These retro looks never go out of style, and they’ll match basically your entire wardrobe. Sneakers to look for include: Adidas superstar, Chucks, Vans old skool, Converse, New Balance, and black slip-ons. You’ll definitely fit right in with these, while remaining fashionable in every season to come.
Match Your Current Style
Speaking of which, make sure you choose the appropriate style to wear with your sneaker of choice. You want to buy sneakers that suit your current wardrobe – not simply the pair that is trending. We suggest choosing shoes that compliment what you already have, not shoes that require you to buy a completely new wardrobe.
Wear Them Appropriately
Sneakers are incredibly versatile, but ensure you’re wearing them to the right occasions and not going too casual. For instance, they shouldn’t be worn at a wedding or cocktail party. You can get away with sneakers and make them more fashionable in work and casual settings, as long as they are paired with a nice dress or slacks. The key is not just to wear them with sporty or athleisure looks – you want to step outside your comfort zone a bit. Trust us, your feet will thank you (#byebyestilettopain). And if you don’t want to sacrifice the added height, opt for a pair of sneakers with a platform!
If you don’t consider your sneakers fashionable, then simply wear more fashionable accessories! You can pair your classic sneakers with a slim-fit blazer, a skirt, a vibrant tote bag, or statement earrings. You’ll instantly feel chic just by adding these subtle pieces to your look, while still remaining comfortable in your favorite kicks.
Keep Them Clean
The most popular sneaker of choice are white ones, which flawlessly go with any outfit. However, they turn unfashionable the second they get dirty. That’s why it’s crucial to keep your sneakers clean for that trendsetting, cool look. Proper sneaker maintenance includes washing the laces, eliminating odors, brushing the outsoles, and using shoe trees and sneaker shields. If you don’t want to buy expensive shoe cleaner, then there’s plenty of household remedies. We suggest trying toothpaste and water, lemon juice and baking soda, or your very own hair conditioner. Don’t knock them until you try it and see the results!
