It’s important for every sneaker lover to stay abreast of the need to know rules of wearing sneakers because, unlike most fashion trends, the sneaker trend hardly goes out of fashion, mainly as a result of its versatility. What changes from time to time though, is the way it’s worn, and recently, with the athleisure trend, where it’s allowed to be worn has also changed.
Here are 7 need to know rules of wearing sneakers
Vintage is Bae
Classics like the Converse All Stars and the Adidas Stan Smith are like fine wine, they only get better with time. Vintage sneakers are so popular that Adidas Originals decided to relaunch some of its past icons, such as the Superstar and the ubiquitous Stan Smith.
Choose the Right Socks
I can remember when it was a fashion crime to let your socks peek outside your shoes, creating a huge market for the no-show socks. Now though, socks are worn on everything including sandals. As a result, finding the right matching socks for your sneakers is an important ingredient to nailing an outfit.
Keep an Eye Open for the Trending Sneakers
The chunky sneaker trend has been the most prominent recently. With the leading sneaker designer brands recently launching new designs to augment the chunky sneaker trend. Making a choice shouldn’t be too hard for you.
Say Yes to Details
Embellishment is an important part of fashion, and in recent years, embellished sneakers have become a thing. An embellished sneaker, either with fur, glitter or beaded embellishment can raise a rather casual look up another notch.
Have Fun with Your Look
With the athleisure trend, you can wear a sneaker to almost anywhere and not look out of place: this gives you a wide range of possibilities. You could rock them with a dress like Stranger Things’ actress, Millie Bobby Brown on the red-carpet of the SAG awards or like the gorgeous Tiwa Savage in the photo above.
Wear Bright Colours
Designs from Giambattista Valli at the Paris Haute Couture Week, Jeremy Scott at the NYFW to Burberry’s Christopher Bailey at the London Fashion Week, would tell you that next season is going to be all about bright colours, so don’t be scared to wear brightly coloured sneakers with your outfight. Opt for colours like Orange, green or a multicoloured pair.
Why let a great pair of sneakers go to waste by letting it gather dust deep in your wardrobe when you can tap into its versatility to come up with bomb outfit ideas. Sneakers are fun and comfortable, be inspired!
