Sneakers Are Having a Moment (Again)

On weekends, it was washed-out jeans, a normcore* top, and white sneakers. We looked great and fashionably stylish back then.

In this look, the upper body is Euro Chic classic with a silk sweater, silk scarf, and blazer. The bottom is a pair of sleek leather jogging pants, and Keds. The type of pants and its sleekness as well as the colors tie the unusual semi-classic casual street style look together. The joggers pick-up the styling the athleisure trend.

How to Look Polished in Sneakers in a Nutshell
Always make sure you wear re-surfaced old trends the new way! Drop the old fashion rules like no white after Labor Day. In the case of the sports shoe trend, forget about wearing white tennis shoes with white socks blue acid wash jeans and a wide shoulder blazer and/or sweater. So 1980s, so Old Lady. Also avoid styling them with a pantsuit. Instead, wear a sleek version that clearly states “I am not for the gym.” Style them like an oxford dress shoe.
