How to wear: Sneakers

Some time ago sneakers would have been something you would only see in the gym or you may have received some funny looks if you did otherwise. However this way of perceiving sneakers has definitely changed (for the better!). With sneakers now appearing on runways, street style as well as style blogs, we can now say that it is completely acceptable to step out of the house in a pair of kicks.

Whether it is for a long day running around the city or simply a choice of comfort, sneakers will prove to be your best friend. And to avoid looking sloppy with your newly found bff, here are three ways to wear sneakers fashionably:

Pair it with a skirt or dress. 
As you can see from the ensembles above, by pairing you sneakers with a skirt or dress will immediately dress up your overall look. To balance things out do go and pair it with another casual piece, be a baseball cap or a slouchy shirt, it all works!

 Pair it with some pants. 
As you may have noticed , the same principal goes for pairing your kicks with pants. You add some high fashion pieces - an intricately detailed jacket, maybe even some fur and then add that sprinkle of casual with a graphic t shit and there you go!

Last but not least, pair it with shorts.
For this one I would have to say that as long as you don't wear your gym shorts, you're good to go. Add on a well tailored blazer or even a leather jacket and voilĂ  there you go!

Are you a fan of wearing sneakers outside the gym?
Which is your favourite way to pair them?
