If you haven’t been hit by the dress-and-sneaker trend yet, where have you been? Considering that sneakers are one of the major moments right now (and for the foreseeable future!), there is little reason to resist trying the simple yet stylish trend.
When it comes to achieving the sporty-meets-flirty look, the key is to focus on the hemlines for the right height of the sneakers’ ankle cut!
1. High-Top Lace-Ups Sneakers
If there’s one outfit combination you need to jump on board (and live in after) in 2019, it’s the short hemlines with high-top sneakers. We’re talking about crisp white sneakers with sleek laces instead of the velcro options out there.
When wearing high-top sneakers, make them a statement show-off accessory to your outfit. Make sure they are seen. That goes the same if you’re wearing high-tops with jumpsuits or pants: simply cuff or hem them to show them off.
Pair it with dresses that skim or cut off just below the knee and you might just pull off grunge chic that is stylized, streamlined, and almost French levels of chic.
2. Low Ankle-Cut Sneakers
If you live in your Converses and Stan Smiths, it’s time to break them out with fresh pieces rented from the Infinite Wardrobe. Squeeze the new outfits that take you from same-old-same-old to effortless cool into the tropical cool and look ultra nonchalant about it.
Give that slip dress a second life when you take loungewear front-and-centre. Complete your easy outfit with all white sneakers and definitely a pop of colour with a statement bag or sunnies. We heard baskets are in trend for the warmer months of 2019, so weave that into your line-up.
For those who are looking to invest in ‘dad sneakers’ aka the white and beige colourway sneakers with the thick soles, structured dresses and midi to maxi jumpsuits will be your best bet. Add the chic factor to your ‘ugly’ comfort shoes when you rent from brands like The Fifth Label and Suncoo.
3. Slip-On Sneakers
Nothing beats lace-up sneakers than easy slip-ons. I mean, what gets easier than pairing a simple summer dress with fuss-free beach curls tied into a bun and no-fail canvas slip-ons?
With easy dresses and slip-ons, it’s almost easy to see why you’d never opt for another weekend go-to. A-line options will definitely elevate your look, even a simple belted option! Keep it casual yet sophisticated with less chunky jewellery and more barely-there accessories like stacking rings and layering necklaces.
So that’s how you can simply dress up your sneakers with styles you’ve never tried or always wanted to try from the Infinite Wardrobe without the commitment!
