6 Stylish Outfits for People Who Only Ever Want to Wear Sneakers

I'd argue that fashion sneakers are the single best thing that's happened in the past 10 years. And not just in fashion—I'm talking across all possible life categories, and I'm barely exaggerating. As a bona fide flats wearer, the notion that women of decades past were expected to totter about in heels all day makes my (weirdly high) arches hurt just thinking about it.

We, thankfully, live in a glorious age of female empowerment (admittedly still a work in progress) where we can elect to wear slingback pumps on our own damn terms. Perhaps not coincidentally, the industry is trending toward taking luxury fashion off its pedestal, making it all much more wearable—and if it sounds like I'm practicing my argument defending the purchase of yet another pair of sneakers, well, I am.

All being said: Time for our seasonal sneaker outfit update! Inspired by the new Steven by Steve Madden line, here are six A+ outfits put together by our editors that capture their luxe-casual vibe for fall.
