What to wear with white sneakers: 5 ways to wear this trend


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.

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.

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.

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!
