High Fashion Sneakers

fashion-sneakers

When it comes to truly stylish, comfortable footwear, sneakers are the new ballet flats. Isabel Marant first introduced her now-ubiquitous sneaker wedges in 2010, which quickly became the go-to shoe for fashion’s elite, including top models, and celebrities. Since then, the humble sneaker’s been reinvented in lively colors and new heights, elevating them to must-have status for any cool girl. In fact, a number of trendsetters are wearing sneakers to add a fresh, contemporary flair to their looks.

On Celebrities
WHO: Rihanna
WEAR: Silver Spoon Attire Vintage Cameo Beanie ($68); Trapstar Irongate Stadium Jacket ($143); Rihanna for River Island Grey Thigh Split Sweat Maxi Skirt ($100); Adidas Pro Model Shoes ($78).
WHY: Wear a classic pair of sneakers with a casual maxi skirt for an edgy downtown look.

WHO: Chloe Moretz
WEAR: Zoe Karssen Ooh Chic Sweater ($113); blue jeans; Puma By Mihara MY-66 Sneakers ($120) in Dark Denim.
WHY: Sporty wedge sneakers elevate Moretz’s off-duty sweater and jeans combo.

WHO: Jessica Biel
WEAR: Black scarf; Fendi jacket; JET jeans; leopard-print gloves; Nike Jordan 1 Phat Sneakers ($73).
WHY: Sneakers with bright laces add a playful pop of color to a laid-back look.

WHO: Jessica Alba
WEAR: Opening Ceremony OC Varsity Patch Jacket ($340); white t-shirt; skinny jeans; Isabel Marant Bayley Suede And Leather High-Top Sneakers ($640).
WHY: Athletic-inspired wedge sneakers play up the vibe of Alba’s varsity jacket.

On You
Feeling inspired? Snag a cool pair for yourself with one of these picks. Flat Sneakers For a chic upgrade on the iconic sneaker, look no further than Nike’s Dunk High Skinny Shoes ($85). They’d look perfect with an oversized button-down and cutoffs for a relaxed ensemble. You could also opt for Zara’s Colored Sneakers ($90); offset their sporty feel with a leather mini skirt and graphic shirt. Wedge Sneakers If you don’t want to sacrifice height, invest in a pair of hidden-heel sneakers. Puma’s Sky Wedge Sneakers ($100) make a statement teamed with skinny jeans and a slouchy t-shirt. For sneakers with a flirtatious appeal, try Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Cutout Sneaker Wedges ($328) in Green, which show off a hint of skin. Pair the on-trend mint hue with a floral skirt and knit sweater for a feminine spring look.

Where do you find your best deals? Kohls and Wet Seal for fashion. DSW for shoes.

What designer are you willing to splurge on?  I usually go for bags and shoes when splurging on designers.  I consider them investment pieces. 😉  A couple of my faves are Gucci, and MichaelKors. I am currently lusting over this infinity Flora Gucci wristlet!

Do you have a go-to shopping outfit? I do not, but some cute and comfy shoes that easily slide on  and off are always a good idea for trying on clothes more easily. These trendy Steve Madden Olympa wedge sneakers are one of my faves right now. $100

These little indulgences make me feel luxurious…. this is just one shelf from my fabulous product collection!

 

What is the one piece of clothing you can’t live without? Jeans! Lots and Lots of Jeans! Colored, faded, embellished, ripped, skinny, flared! Many styles adorn my closet and they are definitely a must have in anybody’s wardrobe!
