You wake up in the morning, slide on your workwear and get to the toughest decision you may make all day: heels or sneakers. OK, maybe not the biggest problem, but it’s a tricky daily question nonetheless. Some cool tennis shoes can work equally well with a dress or jeans, and since they’re ridiculously comfortable, you will make it through a full day on your feet.
Still, as sneaker devotees, we try to follow a few rules. No, they’re not set in stone, but these guidelines are actually pretty helpful for making the most of our favourite footwear. Read on for the 10 dos and don’ts of wearing sneakers and shop a few of our favourite pairs…
If you love something, stick with it! Sometimes there’s nothing better than the classics.
Some sneakers were made to stand out, so wear them with pride.
If you’re planning to wear sneakers to the office, make sure to wipe off any dirt or dust that accumulates.
Sneakers were made to play in, so don’t worry if sometimes they aren’t sparkling.
Show off your cool sneaker style by wearing your favorite office-worthy pair to brunch with your friends.
We love a great sweat session, but the shoes we wear to the gym don’t pull double duty.
Sneakers and socks are a classic combination; show some flair by styling a duo that stands out.
While jeans may seem like the most straightforward pairing, skirts and dresses look great styled with a cool pair of sneakers.
While white sneakers will always be in style, colorful styles are a fun way to mix it up.
If you love the latest It sneakers, go for it! But, don’t feel bad about passing on the trends that come and go.
