4 Ways To Style Sneakers

We all know it: sneakers are not just for the gym anymore. A street style darling—and slowly working their way into office-approps territory—they’re the ideal accessory if you like to make a statement, while feeling confident and comfortable. Here at Calexico, we LOVE the casual kicks trend, but styling your sneaks for every day ain’t easy (there are only so many jeans, tee, and sneaker combos you can rock before you’re bored to death). That’s why we asked our expert stylists to reveal four à la mode ways of styling sneakers, so your kicks scream chic, rather than snore.

Look #1: Pair Your Sneakers With A Slip Dress

This ‘90s trend is officially back and better than ever! The off-duty silk slip dress is making its way through the fashion world paired back with a simple tee. Give your look an extra edge with the addition of white sneakers for a look that’s ready for the weekend.

Look #2: Keep It Cool In Leathers and a Blazer

Nail the fine line between confidence and playful by pairing your leathers back with a simple tee and Smythe blazer, topped off with a street smart pair of sneakers.

Look #3: Sequin Skirt with a Rock’n’Roll Tee

Feeling a little bit extra? This summer, we dare you to try something new: Dress up in your favourite sequin skirt, a rock’n’roll tee, and make the look your own by dressing it down with a pair of simple kicks. You may never go back!

Look #4: Maxi Dress and Leather Jacket

Make your kicks work double time when the seasons change, and add a dose of downtown cool to a boho maxi, by throwing on a leather jacket and slipping into a low-top sneaker. A simple trans-seasonal go-to look you’ll wear again and again.
