Seriously though, this is one of my favorite trends for so many reasons. Namely, comfort. I majorly cut back on wearing heels when I was pregnant (for obvious reasons) and my feet just haven't been the same since. So this whole thing came at a pretty good time and doesn't show signs of slowing down.
There are definitely some dos and don'ts to pulling this look off, however, so today I wanted to share my top five tips for making sure your look is on point. You can also find my current picks below:
2. Flattering fit -- Some sneakers are bulky by nature, and depending on your build, you might want something a little more slimming. Opt for a pair that's designed for walking or leisure rather than, say, running a marathon.
3. Keep the rest of the look simple -- My favorite way to wear sneakers is with faux leather leggings or super skinny jeans. It's the most flattering and looks super chic/effortless. I also like them with distressed boyfriend jeans, but I'm not tall enough to pull it off ;) You can definitely wear them with skirts or dresses, too, but you'll want something like these (in white) in that case.
4. Show some skin -- This look works best when you can see a little bit of your ankle bone. Opt for a pair of pants that's cropped/ankle length or simply cuff whatever pair you're wearing.
5. No socks allowed -- We've talked about this before when dealing with ankle booties and the same rule applies to the sneaker trend. I'm not saying don't wear socks, I'm just saying wear the right ones. To keep the look sleek, your socks shouldn't be visible.
