The white sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere and here’s why. They aren’t just for working out, they make the perfect touch to any fashion-forward outfit. Enjoy this 90s throwback trend and get ready for a break from your high heels!
Stark-white kicks are taking over the fashion scene and we have five stylistic tips and tricks on just how to wear them (P.S. You can totally dress up or dress down any of these looks for a personalized touch). We’ve seen them on everyone from Kristen Stewart to Kendall Jenner to Karlie Kloss.
Play up your white sneakers and channel your inner cool-girl by pairing them with cropped jeans, a simple top, and an oversized blazer or jacket. As summer approaches quickly, switch it up with high-waisted shorts, a simple crop top, and a tied plaid shirt around the waist. Need to throw something on quick? Try your favorite jeans with a basic tee and, of course, white sneakers. Finish with loose locks and a neutral lip. These laid-back looks give off all the elements of a fashion-forward style without trying too hard.
Be a little risky and pair your white kicks with chic girl-boss outfits, such as jumpsuits, professional dresses, or two piece-suits. They also pair nicely with skirts, cross-body bags, and a bold lip. Instead of pushing through the day in uncomfortable heels, switch it up with a sleek pair of white sneakers. It maintains all the class with a little sass.
Treat them as a neutral balance by adding it to a more classic ensemble that makes the white stand out as a bright base. This trick works best with dark, basic colors, such as brown, gray and black. Potential outfits include a LBD (little black dress), a dark maxi paired with a light jacket, or a dark-colored romper with a bomber jacket. Finish it with natural curls and neutral makeup or a bold lip, which will control eye movement throughout your outfit and add a POP to your white sneakers.
Express your urban fashionista by pairing them with sporty-chic outfits. Aiming for a more street look? Add torn-up or faded jeans with a jersey top to the mix. Or if you’re going for a more sophisticated look, add them to an athletic silhouette like an Adidas dress tees and tank dresses. Complement these outfits with a sleek ponytail, messy braid or your natural locks. It’s all the street with the necessary style!
Go the old-fashion route and pair them with trendy sweat suits, track outfits or other athleisure wear. If you have a busy day ahead that includes a quick work out then a night out on the town, try pairing your white sneakers with patterned workout legging and sports bra during the day then spruce it up with a satin or patterned bomber jacket at night.
