How To Style Sneakers


How to style sneakers

How to style sneakers. I’ve always been a high heels kinda girl. The higher the better, in my opinion. I love how long and lean a leg looks in a pair of pumps. I love that your whole body needs to adjust,  how suddenly you are forced to throw your shoulders back and lengthen your spine. Frankly wearing a stunning pair of heels makes me feel powerful and like I can’t be stopped.  My love of sneakers, however, has been growing of late. Maybe it’s because I trek over cobblestones every day or perhaps it’s because I don’t need to dress up for work, but I’ve discovered that a great pair of converse is almost (almost) as fun as a fabulous heel.

While I wish that I could wear heels all day long that’s just not possible, so I often turn to my trusty cream-in-the-summer, navy-in-the-fall converse, as they can go with most of my casual day to day outfits. When I choose a neutral shoe then I like to add some prints to the rest of my outfit. In this case, I would pair them with a flirty skirt and a fun colourful top. My favourite tote would complete the outfit for day.

On weekends, when I might be doing a lot of sightseeing I crave something a little different. This is when I might reach for some leopard print or patterned sneakers. Since I never know where I might be, this is when I might pair them with a pair of denim cutoffs or boyfriend jeans and a comfy t-shirt. Of course, I never leave home without my favourite-fits-everything-I-might-need cross body bag.

Another great way to wear sneakers is to pair them with some bright skinny jeans. You can never go wrong with a pair of slip-on shoes, although I prefer laces. Besides, there are so many options for how to lace your sneakers (think top two holes undone) that you can easily change up your look. With all the amazing sneaker stores popping up on every corner, you are sure to find a style that fits you best!

  1. When fully converted to sneakers, there is no going back 🙂 Leather pants, even dresses and skirts. 🙂 Happy weekend!

    1. Ha! I think you might be right.

  2. I envy your ability to just wear sneakers. I know it sounds ridiculous but they never seem right on me with the rest of my outfit. If I wear them, chances are I have on a pair of capri length leggings or work out gear. I really love how casual and COMFORTABLE a pair of sneakers can be but for some reason, I can’t pull them off to my liking. So I always end up wearing flats instead. I think that I’ve made it up in my head that my legs look too short in them. Which is a load of crap because I wear flats all the time.
    Anyway, maybe one day I can make things work. But for now I’ll just live vicariously through you and your converse collection. Enjoy your comfy shoes!

    1. The only sneakers I wear during the day are converse and that comes from 10+ years of teaching Pilates and wearing Lululemon every day…. I just got used to them. Also, long walks on the seawall are more conducive to very casual shoes. When I lived in TO I don’t think I owned a pair of sneakers… Now that I’m used to them I love them BUT give me a great pair of heels any day!

  3. these shoes look amazing
    new review on my blog
    have a nice weekend
    i wait you

    1. Thank you! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  4. I like wearing my sneakers with a pair of my gap jeans, and a regular t-shirt!

    1. Perfect! That’s probably my daily staple…

  5. I’m a trainers fan, and like my converse too! In fact, i have worn my favourite pair of converse’s to death. One is black sequins which I wear with red laces and when I walk in them I fee like MJ in the Billie Jean video. The other are metallic. You are right about the impact of lacing, it can make all the difference!

    1. Black sequins on converse?! LOVE!!!

  6. Me too! Luv for sneakers has been growing of late. My recent infactuation has been with a pair of bright red ProKeds by Converse that I’ve been wearing a LOT! Also been craving a pair of hightops recently…

    1. Me too! I might have to take the plunge into the world of hightops!

  7. I am loving the sneaker trend and my current faves are my polka dot high tops with a skirt or jeans.

    1. Oh I need to see those! Love it.
