Is the sneaker trend here to stay?? Yes! Yes it is!! Why, you ask? You did ask right?? Because not only is it a super chill, fashionable, edgy look, it is actually COMFORTABLE! Can you even??!! And, not only is it a super comfortable trend, we can now wear sneakers almost anywhere, and by almost anywhere I mean ANYWHERE. Long gone are the days we only laced up for a workout or a walk outside. We are now wearing them for shopping, work, and out to dinner. Even to a fancy restaurant! And the cool thing is that we are not only comfortable for all of these events, we are right on trend!

And can we talk about all of the options?! Sneakers are now found in leather, suede, metallics and velvet. White is a given and a must, as is black,  but blush, silver, embroidered and studded are becoming mainstays as well! They lace up, slip on, velcro and buckle.  You don’t have to spend a fortune either. The most popular, well priced athletic brands such as Adidas, Superga, Keds, Converse, Nike, Vans and Puma are all in the fashion game. And for those who like a more designer feel there is Alexander McQueen, Gucci and Chanel to name a few.

Hopefully these pics will inspire you to get your shop on and take the plunge! And send me photos of how you styled them, I’d love to see!! Enjoy!

    I would like to know more about sheer fabrics and how to wear them and what brands are the best. They look so swanky…as well as comfy and cool! . They seem like the perfect way to stay cool without having all body parts on display…

      Well hey Janet Lynn!! I think you are talking about the sheer skirts that are out right now?? I love seeing them over a pair of ripped up jeans or jean shorts! If you are so inclined you can even put them over a bodysuit, but that is pretty daring. Instead of looking for a specific brand, go to some sites like Polyvore, Shopbop or google sheer skirts and all kinds of sites and stores will come up! I don’t know how cool you will stay but you will certainly look cool!

        Great, thank you! I loved your latest blog, my favorite so far. I am all about sneakers and already purchased the Adidas white leather with black stripes you featured. Keep me styling!
