It used to be sky-high statement heels that ruled the street style snaps at Fashion Week, but with each season, it seems more and more fashion insiders are ditching their stilettos for a way comfier alternative to rock outside the tents - sneakers! It turns out that this practical footwear choice isn't just about comfort, either - when styled correctly, they can look just as on-fleek as your go-to pair of heels.
1. Simple and Sleek in Stan Smiths
Stan Smiths ($74.95, Nordstrom) are having a major moment among the fashion crowd - and what's not to like? Their clean, minimalist design makes them perfect for wearing with simple, understated pieces like a sharp camel blazer ($21.33, Romwe) and slouchy V-neck sweater ($24.99, H&M). Give the look an edge by rocking black moto pants ($39.90, Zara) and a minimalist faux leather tote ($49.99, Mango). One piece of killer statement jewelry, like this gorgeous marble cuff ($39.50, Macy's), is all you need!
2. Killer Converse
Converse ($60, Akira) adds just enough of a casual touch to make any outfit look super effortless. Show off your kicks by styling them with a corduroy overall dress ($75, Topshop) and classic striped turtleneck ($20, Boohoo). Black accessories like this street style stardom-worthy studded bag ($31.23, Zaful) and edgy sunnies ($6.70, Chicnova) pull the look together. Make it autumn-appropriate by topping it off with a cute slouchy knit beanie ($18, Pacsun)!
This look is proof that even your go-to gym sneakers ($75, Bloomingdales) can be dressed up for wearing IRL. We love the contrast of a sophisticated lace-hem skirt ($27.36, Pink Queen) and tie-neck blouse ($39.90, Zara) with your casual footwear choice. A boyfriend cardigan ($80, Topshop) thrown on top keeps things casual. Accessorize with fashion's favorite carry-all this season - the on-trend bucket bag ($29.90, Forever 21).
