Here’s How To Get Away With Pairing Sneakers and Skirts


Don’t judge me but I’ve never been much of a sneaker girl. When I was in high school, you wouldn’t catch me dead wearing anything other than heels (and the occasional stylish flat). But thanks to a job that requires me to stand on my feet, I’ve found myself swapping out stilettos for *gasp* comfy kicks. And color me surprised that the one shoe I hated is now my go-to style.

Sneakers are versatile and come in chic options from high tops to slip-ons. I love being able to express my personality so I opt for pairs with fun prints or graphics (yes, they exist). It feels like I’m getting in on the trend in a unique way. Oh, and did I mention I pair them with skirts and dresses? You can, too!

Check out some of my fave sneakers and style tips below:

1. Pair Your Bold Sneakers With Basics.

Don’t be afraid to choose a bold hue and mix it with a neutral color palette. This is the perfect way to keep the attention on your shoes and compliment your fall layers.

2. Choose A Monochromatic Look.

Rocking one color from head-to-toe always looks sleek and polished, regardless of your footwear. If you are going for a more formal look, match your kicks to your ensemble. It’ll keep the look from being too busy, which is always a huge plus in my book.

3. Anchor Your Prints With A Solid Pair of Sneakers.

I especially love that Celmatique chose matching oxblood colored sneakers to compliment her striped top.

If your outfit is vibrant and bold, go for a solid-colored sneaker that compliments without competing.

4. Opt For A Dress With Sporty Sneakers.

Sporty sneakers aren’t just reserved for the gym anymore. They create a cool contrast when paired with feminine pieces.
