Kaia Gerber Is Right: This Is the Chicest Way to Wear Sneakers for a Date

Kaia Gerber attended a screening of boyfriend Austin Butler's film (Elvis—ever heard of it?) this week in New York, and she did so in her usual fashion—casual, classic, and trend-forward. I was only somewhat surprised to see that she wore sneakers for the occasion, and I loved it. They weren't just any sneakers, but we'll get to that.

While Gerber technically wore sneakers for the high-profile date night, she didn't exactly look like she was going to the gym. The sneakers were the highly coveted New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore 550s, and the polished outfit consisted of a leather blazer and shoulder bag from Celine, a tee, and a black pleated miniskirt. She added on a pair of crew socks and '90s-inspired sunglasses to bring it all together. I don't know about you, but the next time I go to the movies, I'm wearing this.
