It's 2018, and the sneaker trend is still a force to be reckoned with. While certain shoe styles are slowly making their way into the forefront of every fashion girl's closet—for example, low-heeled boots—sneakers will always be a practical, comfortable, and versatile pick if you're in a footwear rut.
Tracee Ellis Ross is the latest celeb to offer up bountiful sneaker outfit inspiration, and her looks prove that a cool pair of kicks can be styled in so many ways. Take, for example, the dress-and-sneaker combo, an always classic pairing that fuses together a more playful, comfortable piece—a dress—with a cool and casual staple—sneakers.
Or as Ellis Ross demonstrates, the sneakers-and–trouser suit combo is a nice choice when you want something a bit more professional and slightly more weather-appropriate for when the cooler temperatures set in.
