How to dress up your favorite sneakers


With ever changing trends in fashion and style, sneakers have easily taken the place of that accessory that fits into almost any style. Having been made available in all colors, materials and styles, you’d be hard pressed to find an outfit that a pair of sneakers can’t pair up with well. Even better, when outfitted correctly you can wear them to any occasion. There was a time that the rubber soled kicks were the preserve of marathoners and other athletes, but that has changed over time and the gym isn’t even on the minds of most people who go shopping for sneakers nowadays. They’re chic, highly presentable and appropriate, working with both formal and casual looks.

Sneakers come in various styles including high-tops, low-tops and slip ons. Different styles go with different outfits, and that’s what you need to know to make the most out of the shoe’s versatility. Matching your favorite sneakers properly is what will make them seem appropriate in any setting. Below are ideas on how to dress up your favorite sneakers and effectively pull off a seamless outfit.

1. Pair up with a mini dress.

Simple yet fashionable, a short dress looks great when paired with complementing sneakers. For a monochromatic dress, you can choose matching sneakers or colored ones for a pop of color into the outfit.
