The humble white sneaker is on-trend these few seasons, and has been spotted all over street style blogs, IG & Pinterest followings! Its all over white colour makes it the go-to shoe to match with and wear for summer, travelling and for a way to dress down your outfit. Because of how comfortable it is, you won’t be left with tired feet while walking all around the city, and you’ll be doing it in style too.
Let’s look at some of the ways you can wear and style these white sneakers of yours:
1) Cropped Pants
The loose cropped pant is very on-trend right now, and styling this with a white sneaker makes a lot of sense, as you can show off your ankle and lower leg with this type of look. This minimal look is all about playing with the proportions, so mix it up with the right amount of bagginess and fit throughout the outfit, to get that easy casual look.

2) Midi skirt
This midi skirt looks goes great with white sneakers, because of the white T shirt that it matches with. Choose simple, graphic tees that match the colours of your skirt. In this case, this is a great example of a monochrome look using just black and white, with interesting tie front details in the skirt.

Here is our pick for a similar look, with platform sneakers, a graphic print skirt and matching coloured tee:
3) Summer dresses
Pairing summer mini dresses with white sneakers are a no-brainer. The cute printed minidress is a perfect mix of young and flirty, and brings out the fun side of you when matched with white sneakers.
For a similar look, we’ve paired floral embellished white sneakers with a simple black print minidress with puffy sleeves, and a sun cap or visor to round out the outfit.
4) Skinny Jeans
One of our favourite go-tos is a pair of skinny jean – these work so well with white sneakers and have become a classic yet still on-trend look for fashionistas out there. Pair the sneakers with a black skinny jean with rips for more edge, and top with a neutral coloured T-shirt like white, grey or black. Add accessories where necessary. And voila! this chic and simple look is done.

Our picks- we’ve paired a simple white trainer with a wrap grey T-shirt for more detail and added a studded bum bag to add more street-cred to the look. The outfit is simple yet interesting, with all the little design details in each item.
5) Tapered Sweats
Another great way to wear your sneakers, is with a pair of tapered sweats. Unlike regular sweats, these pants are tapered around the ankles to give a more slimming and stylish effect. You can pair the sweats with a cool logo T-shirt and a fitted jacket to balance out the proportion, and keep the look fashionable and cool, without looking sloppy.
Our picks include an all-white logo sneaker with a dark sweatpant, white graphic Tee, and fitted denim jacket. The look screams street style, without compromising on function and comfort:
Tips on choosing a white sneaker:
1) Look for all-white base & trimming for a sleeker look
2) Look for slimmer cuts of sneakers, eg. brands like Superga or Keds
3) Pick materials other than canvas for a more high-end look
4) Wear ankle socks to show off more of your legs
5) Keep your sneakers clean – no one likes a scruffy sneaker!
