Sneakers are a game changer when it comes to transitional summer style. From performance sneakers fit for a marathon run to platform low-tops that raise the bar, there’s a sneaker style to fit every personality. And for morning, noon, and night, they’re among the simplest of ways to update your summer style.
The past few seasons have transformed even the most staunch of naysayers to full-blown obsessives over these sporty kicks. Designers like Gucci and Balenciaga have filled their runway shows with sneakers from classic shapes in colorful metallic hues to the more controversial chunky sneaker trend that has gained momentum as of late. And your favorite go-to sneaker brands, like Nike and Superga, have taken their existing loves and elevated them to the next level by featuring varying textures and colors that will make your jaw drop.
This season, we love pairing our sneakers with casual jeans and floral wrap dresses, denim cutoffs, and midi skirts alike. In short, we can’t get enough when it comes to this wardrobe staple, especially for summer. From lace dresses to tailored trousers, here are our favorite ways to wear sneakers that will instantly up the ante on your summer style.
