    As if we needed another excuse to wear the full skirt, this look proves yet another way to style our favorite feminine piece this season! We enjoy the monochrome aspect of her outfit, contrasted by a black moto jacket and black sneakers.

    If you’re interested in a youthful iteration of the trend, look no further than Lisa Dengler. The blogger played with school girl elements—a Missguided Ailey Tartan Skirt ($26), Topshop Tailored Long Line Blazer ($140), and ASOS Monki Knitted Cropped Sweater ($36)—but balanced her look with an Illy Emerald City Necklace ($42) and, of course, her Nike Air Max Sneakers ($100)!

    Julia Sarr Jamois

    We can always count on Jamois for a pop of color. We love her tomato red knit next to that fox tail accessory and simple pair of jeans. The Nikes tie the whole look together, we’d say.

    If you require a set of sneakers for your weekend errands, don’t fret. Torres shows us you can be stylish while staying functional. We love the simplicity of her Zara jumper, Mango trousers and coat, paired with Nike Air Max Sneakers ($120) — truly the perfect finishing touch.

    Bette Frank

    If this ensemble doesn’t have you grabbing for your tennies, we don’t know what will. The Dutch beauty styled her sneakers in a beautifully layered look. Two scarves tied together? Perfection!

    Street style

    Something we love about the sneaker is its laid-back reputation. If you’d prefer to slip under the radar while wearing yours, we suggest following this street styler’s lead. Go simple with a shirtdress and layer with your favorite black cardigan.
