Sneakers worn with dresses is certainly not a new thing, but with so many different ways to combine the two it’s become a lot more fun to do. I own three pairs of sneakers–1 for the gym and 2 pairs of Jordan Flight Origins–and though I’m not a true Sneakerhead, I appreciate the flair they bring to an outfit.
I think I look to celebrities Rihanna and Tracee Ellis Ross when I’m thinking of dressing up sneakers because they do it so effortlessly.
It’s natural to draw inspiration from others, but you have to stay true to your own sense of style. If the TER and Rih-Rih examples are a bit too much for you, here’s a way to put together basic pieces you may already have and still look chic.
This is me–in a very cluttered room, so let’s hold off on the judgment m’kay–a few months ago sporting a simple $10 midi dress, a scarf, and a pair of Jordans. The shoes are the most expensive part of the ensemble and sometimes you just have to splurge on certain things.
Recreating this look is very easy and here are some pieces to get you started:
Classic midi dress $12.90, Forever 21
Nike Women’s Genico Print Casual Sneakers $54.98 sale price, Macy’s
Women’s Denim Jacket $32 sale price, Old Navy
Crinkle Infinity Scarf $14.99, Target
This does total over $100, but with an idea in mind you now have the tools you need to make this look your own. If you’re a chick who loves kicks with dresses and you want to share your look, email me at email@example.com
