#trendalert: dress + sneakers9:00 AM
As a sporty girl, I've been always obsessed by colorful sport shoes and sneakers. I started collecting them when I was on my late teenagehood, and I still keep some pairs that still fit and didn't end very damaged by life.
There's been around lately a trend I really did despise, but which has caught my heart little by little; although you know I'm not a big any-fashion-trend fan, and that is wearing trainers and training shoes with skirts or dresses. I just love it!
I'm obsessed with the match of skater dresses or A-line dresses with colorful, patterned sneakers. If paired well, you can achieve a super feminine and comfortable look, yet different and stylish. Fashion bloggers as Gary Pepper and Tsangtastic among others you can spot on these collages I made know how to rock their sneakers + dress outfits so well! I think the key of mastering this kind of outfits achieving balance: talking about different volumes, accessories and dress/skirt shapes. Here are some useful tips I've discovered while experimenting myself with this trend:
- Plain, non-patterned sneakers go perfect with bodycon dresses and pencil skirts. They also look great with stripes and geometrical patterns.
- Converse and All-Star sneakers look good with loose dresses and flowy skirts. Pleats and vibrant colors match this shoes to achieve a very fun, fresh outfit.
- Patterned and colorful sneakers could be paired with skater dresses and simpler accessories. They key is to focus all glances to your feet, so it may be best to pair your sporty shoes with plain, non-patterned dresses or add too many colors to your outfit.
- Statement sneakers. As the type we saw at Chanel & Dior Haute Couture catwalk images above. They usually have this kind of thick sole and have almost the same structure used at real running and fitness sneakers. Although I'm a little bit hesitant about them to be used on this way, I must say they look nice with formal, long and event dresses. Not really into it, and I'm not sure if I would go that far with the trend but I like seeing these shoes worn at catwalks with high fashion and Haute Couture proposals.
I don't know about you but I already tried this dress + sneakers #trendalert on a day I wasn't really on the mood of wearing regular, formal shoes or booties...
