10 Fun Ways To Wear Sneakers This Spring

Get tomboy-y with your favorite outfits!

White kicks aren't just for the gym or running around errands in. They're super stylish this season and give you a tool to create some interesting contrasts that will take your outfits to streetstyle levels. While the go-to is usually to match it with a pair of jeans and be on your way, there are actually a bevy of stylistic options that you can play with. Below are 10 fun ways to wear sneakers this spring - which one will you be trying this week?

1. Wear It With A Blazer

Match them with a sharp looking blazer and a dapper wide brim hat for a contrast between casual AF and prim.

2. Contrast It With Structured Pieces

When you think of structured dresses and two-piece sets, you usually think of fancy attire - which usually calls for heels. That's exactly why pairing those items with sneakers is so fun - it's unexpected and the contrast makes it look interesting. 

3. Match It With Lady-Like Dresses

There's nothing cooler than juxtaposing a prim, lady-like dress with some laid back kicks that give this a Sixteen Candles type of vibe.

4. Pair It With Boho Dresses

Instead of going with tried and true sandals with your bohemian dresses, try pairing them up with sneakers for a change of pace. It'll make the look feel less hippie and more urban.

5. Wear It With Overalls

For a truly girl-next-door look, match up overalls that are paired with a tee, with a pair of keds. They give off a lazy summer time vibe that will be perfect for heading to the farmer's market or brunch in.

6. Contrast It With Skirts You'd Wear With Heels

Try this tip: Whenever you think you should wear heels, see if white sneakers work instead. Fashion is all about clashing and playing with different styles, so give the risky move a go!

7. Juxtapose With Formal Dresses

Give your feet a break when going out in your fancy duds by slipping on a pair of kicks. Just think of how much easier it will be to tear up the dance floor!

8. Pair It With Preppy Looks

Give your preppy looks a more casual feel by pairing them with white sneakers or chucks. Whether that's dressing down your denim shirts and striped shirts, or matching them with pencil skirts and button downs, it'll be a fun new look.

9. Wear It With Baggy Pieces

There's nothing cozier than a maxi dress paired with a maxi sweater and your favorite pair of chucks. It'll feel reminiscent of those days you dressed your own self when you were five, but you'll look fabulous. 

10. Match Them With Leather Jackets

Give your leather jackets less of a Fonz look and more of an urban chic twist by matching them with sneakers. 

Whether you bust out your kicks for blazers of for evening dresses, they'll add a fun new twist to your daily style and change the way you think of mix and matching!
