Nowadays, sneakers have infiltrated my everyday wear just as much as the next pair of heels or sandals. No longer are they solely just for running a quick errand or for hitting up the gym. Sneakers have ultimately transcended and are appropriate for almost any occasion, including traditional places like the office and some formal events. With this trend, brands are upping their sneaker offering with fresh, new designs that are more on the high-end side. These new wave aesthetics that are being incorporated into classic designs open up the windows to new styling opportunities. Here are a few examples on how I love to dress up sneakers.

Mix with Print

We love a good all-over print, so pairing with sneakers is absolutely a no-brainer. Whether you are wearing a funky striped jumpsuit, a floral matching set, or an animal print maxi dress, you can bet sneakers are a great footwear choice. For loud prints, you can either go with two options: A more demure trainer in a neutral hue or a sneaker in a bold color to compliment the print. Either way, the fearless print is an easy, effortless way to dress up whichever sneaker you decide to go with!

Suit Up

Lately, I have been rocking a lot of girl boss pantsuits and I would be remiss not to pair them with sneakers on some occasion. This relaxed suiting is gaining popularity by the minute in both men and women’s fashion. All it requires is an updated suit set, perhaps with more casual details such as linen fabrication or a looser fit. Then, you simply pair an equally cool and casual pair of sneakers to tie the whole look together.

Add a Romantic Touch

As we move away from just the yoga pants and gym sneaker combo, we get into more diverse looks that offer a lot of interest and juxtaposition. The romantic trend is still going strong. This aesthetic is comprised with delicate details like lace,

bell sleeve, and petite ruffles. Contrary to popular belief, these more effeminate pieces pair nicely with a sleek pair of sneakers.

Midi Skirt

With the evolve of the sneaker trend, you can honestly style almost anything with them. For instance, a midi skirt gets a refresh when worn with a sporty pair of tennis shoes. Don’t be afraid of playing around with more luxurious fabrics like silk, satin, and lace. The two end up balancing each other out for a harmonious, trendy look that can be worn to your next event.


Lastly, another way to step up your sneaker game to be fit for more formal events is to go fully monochromatic. Whether that be all black from head-to-toe or a complete pastel outfit, you can never really steer wrong. Monochrome looks are one of the easiest ways to elevate your style, especially when opting for sneakers.
