Street style queens are pairing these boat-like sneakers with tracks, joggers, ankle grazing jeans, and beautiful printed trouser. The key to styling, I would say, is to balance the casual and the more structured and tailored. If you wear joggers with dad shoes, you need to add a fitted element to avoid looking too caj.

Opt for a structured white blouse, a blazer or cropped top with exaggerated sleeves. A tailored plaid jacket will also spell perfect harmony. 

Whether mini or midi, I just love the look of oversized blazers, short skirt suits and floaty skirts worn with these clunky numbers.
