Sneaker Chic with DSW Shoe Hookup

Who says sneakers can’t be chic? We’ve seen many ways a sneaker has been dressed up – paired with slacks to structured cropped pants, worn with dresses, skirts, sleek maxis and more. So if you haven’t been dressing up your sneaks, how about we school you in with our top sneaker picks from DSW Shoe Hookup’s Back to Class shoes? But first, here’s an outfit inspiration on how you can style your favorite pair of sneakers or boat shoes like this Sperry ones from DSW!

Sneaker Chic

  • If you’d like to dress up sneakers, the key is to break the conventional way of wearing one. Instead of casual pieces, wear it with dressier types of clothing. Take for example this flounce dress is something that you would normally wear with heels – like pumps, wedges, caged boots or strappy sandals. But instead, try wearing it with sneakers for a fun day look.
  • Another way to create a sneaker chic look is to wear classic pieces with sneakers. Think of the classic LBD (little black dress) like I’m wearing… or a nautical navy and white striped maxi, LWD (little white dress), white button down shirt, pencil skirt, black slacks and many other classic pieces of clothing!
  • Keep it sophisticated in structured or refined outfits. To make sneakers chic, keep your whole outfit refined. Don’t go crazy or overboard with the styling. This is the perfect time to go with the “less-is-more-approach”. If you want a sneaker chic look, then pull a Jackie O. or Audrey Hepburn.

    I was just at dsw yesterday looking at slip-on leopard shoes…I saw the sorry ones but my fiancé said they were ugly. Unfortunately, in person they were ugly but I love them on other people! Augh…I need a pair of slip on leopards, I just need to find the right one!
    I submitted my outfit pic but I hate the way it was coming out! I’m horrible at outfit photos. I love the shoes and pants but couldn’t get them to photo the way I saw it in my head!

    I love that cropped army jacket! Looks very versatile! I have been wearing my leopard slip ons like they are going out of style! Totally agree about mixing dressy pieces with the sneakers! Great look!
