How to wear your sneakers with everything

accreditation

How do I style sportswear staples with the rest of my wardrobe? I love comfort above all else, but I need to stay stylish. How do I wear sneaks around town without looking sloppy? Thuli Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 10.57.59 AM The answer is a midi jersey dress. The all-in-one favourite has had a slick makeover this season, with carefully crafted lines and a svelte shape that perfectly complement your latest sneaker purchase. Best of all? After a day of errands you can simply swop your sneakers for stilettos to hit the dance floor.  How do I mix my feminine pieces with my sneaks? My new pink coat screams lady, but my sneakers say street.

The key is to keep things fresh, yet feminine. A sporty crop top with sneakers is a no-brainer, but the polish of a pencil skirt adds a feminine touch that pulls things together.  I love the athleisure look, but I’m always afraid that I look like I’m heading home from the gym. Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 10.56.33 AM Sneakers and puffers are certainly favourites of the athletic, but for those of us who are more on the leisure side of life, it's best to style your staples with a fun and feminine skirt. A pleated skirt, to be exact. Just make sure that you opt for one in a muted tone, so that the look is more complementary than contrasting.

The instant update that has lasted season through season, the trendy girl’s go-to, the wardrobe winner that makes any outfit modern? The tailored elegance of the culotte adds just the right amount of class to your kicks, all without sacrificing on comfort.
