Sneakers go-to shoe for spring fashions


March 4, 2018

Flats are nice. Heels are better. But sneakers are the best shoe for the season. Not only are they the most comfortable but are now the most versatile shoe than ever before.

In 2018, women are just as passionate about their sneaker collection as men are. It's not hard to find the latest trends in women's sneakers and when you've gotten into a pair you love, the best part is seeing how many outfits you can pair them with.

Start with white sneakers. A simple pair of white kicks air great with pleated skirts, jeans and just about any look you can think of. Also, try them on with a feminine dress for a chic alternative to stilettos for a downplayed look. This is a great look if you’re going to be on your feet a lot. White sneakers also pair well with slouchy suits — if you’re into this ensemble.

When it comes to branding, you can't go wrong with Adidas Originals Gazelle's. They pair great with just about everything whether your look is small town chic or city it-girl cool and they come in many colors. Wear a colorful pair with all black, add some accessories, cool hair and you're all set.

Next, If you think your Converse Chuck Taylor's are out, guess again. Try them on with a pair of ankle length plaid pants and you're on your way.

Another old school sneaker that's still making appearances are the skate sneaker, Vans. They’re perfect for toughing up girlie ruffled pieces. To wrap it all up is the 1990s Instapump-inspired sneaker. They are the biggest trend of the season.

You'll see that most brands are designing their own modern updates of this sneaker and they're another shoe that you can pair with any look. Find your classic or newbie sneaker and create some fun, comfy looks for all year around.
