Ask Belle: A Moment for Sneakers
Mar 2, 2015
Are sneakers still having the “moment” that they were having in 2014? I’m late to this trend, but I’m looking for a new pair before a vacation in Europe later this spring, so I figure better late than never. Do you have any tips for how to style them without looking like it’s gym day in elementary school? Any styles you recommend (or recommend avoiding)?
Love the blog! Thanks! Denise
While the trend might have cooled down some, I don’t think you can go wrong with a stylish pair of sneakers. I wear mine to run errands or for a quick stroll through the neighborhood, and it save wear and tear on my pricier ballet flats. Just make sure you style the rest of your outfit so the sneakers are a cool, casual addition.
As for what to avoid, stick with neutral colors. The neutrals are just more versatile. Here are a few of my favorite pairs.
I know I said neutrals, but for me, metallics are neutral. I just bought these sneakers, and I love them.
