If you are looking for comfortable yet stylishly versatile footwear, sneakers surely fit the bill. With these shoes, it doesn’t matter whether you are wearing the latest street style or designer threads off the runway because they go with literally everything.
So, if you have a few pairs of sneakers that you want to incorporate more into your outfit of the day or OOTD (because let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be more comfortable?) the possibilities are endless. But if you need a little boost in the right fashion direction, here are six superstar style ideas with sneakers to serve as your inspiration.
1. Baby doll dress + sneakers
With the ‘90s fashion back on trend, a lot of girls and young women are gravitating towards cute baby doll dresses.
But, these short dresses actually transcend style genres. They can look grunge, boho-chic, mod-retro, or sweet and feminine. And, there is always a pair of sneakers perfect for whichever fashion vibe you are going for.
Stars rocking the baby doll and sneakers ensemble are Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Emma Roberts, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift.
2. All-denim ensemble + sneakers
Denim-on-denim is a trend that will not go away soon and many can easily pull off this look. For denim-on-denim, you can go for a monotone pairing or make light and dark varieties match, and complete the casual chic attire with a pair of white sneaks.
Here’s a truly easy denim-on-denim getup idea – take your favourite denim skinny jeans and a denim oversized boyfriend shirt. Tuck the front of the shirt neatly, leave the back of the shirt un-tucked, undo two to three top buttons of the shirt, pop up the collar, and wear low-cut white sneakers.
This look is effortlessly elegant yet ready for all kinds of hustle for the day.
Stars caught in this style: Karen Gillan (a former “Doctor Who” Star), Kendall Jenner, Jessica Alba, and Karlie Kloss.
3. All-black attire + sneakers
Popular social media platforms Pinterest and Instagram feature countless images of this popular style. The thing is, you can never go wrong with black, and you can also never go wrong with sneakers. So, when you put these two foolproof style components together, you automatically get a sleek and chic getup.
Take a cue from style royalties Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Nicole Richie, and Rihanna.
These women wore all-black pieces composed of everything from long trench coats, to mini dresses, yoga pants, ripped jeans, and leather jackets with their favorite pair of sneakers. They all prove that sophistication is accessible and comfortable with black and sneakers.
4. Maxi dress or skirt + sneakers
This pairing is the epitome of feminine comfort. A long maxi dress or skirt — be it fitted or billowy — effortlessly flatters a woman’s natural movement and shape. And, when paired with soft sneakers, you have a woman ready for the world.
Here’s the even more fantastic thing about this ensemble – it just works! Whether the dress is ultra-feminine with a lot of fabric and floral patterns, or it’s a figure-hugger, you can have the assurance that it will look good with canvas sneakers or a pair from an athletic store.
Stars who swear by this look are Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson, Olivia Wilde, and Olivia Munn.
5. “Thrifted” + sneakers
This is a match made in grunge heaven. Pre-loved clothing with sneakers is easy and comfortable, which everybody can pull off. It gives off that Woodstock (which, by the way, had a revival in the ‘90s) vibe.
The beauty of this trend is whatever thrift store pieces you put together can only make you look like you are just a naturally cool person creating your own style. This is because you’re not necessarily following anybody’s standards. Rather, you’re making thrifty finds work just for you.
Stars who look rich in “thrifted” clothes and sneakers are the Haim sisters, Anne Hathaway, Zooey Deschanel, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
6. White shirt + jeans + sneakers
This classic minimalist fashion style has been around for decades and it is never going away. This simple style is clean, comfortable, and looks good on everybody. It’s no wonder it is the go-to outfit for anybody who wants to look quite put together without spending a lot of time getting ready and compromising comfort.
Famous stars who love this style ensemble are Miranda Kerr, Taylor Hill, Charlize Theron, and Deepika Padukone.
There are still so many other superstar styles that you can complete with a pair of sneakers. All these styles prove that impeccable fashion does not have to be expensive, inconvenient and uncomfortable. If famous personalities can beautifully recreate these styles, for sure, you can do the same for yourself as well.
