This Vintage-Inspired Sneaker Is a Street Style Essential

Choosing a stylish sneaker for a non-athletic outfit walks a fine line: Too sporty may not look sophisticated enough with your favorite dress, and too simple can sometimes look unrefined. New Balance’s classic sneaker collection hits the sweet spot, with a wide range of retro-inspired shoes that call upon vintage athletic styling details. Plus, the look easily complements a midi-length skirt or trousers for a street style vibe. 

Fashion blogger Cara Loren's sneakers shown below are an easy choice for a fresh fall outfit. She pairs hers with a knit skirt and leather jacket. “You can wear these sneakers anywhere really. Running errands, walking the city, and meetings,” Loren explains. Get her styling tips for wearing sneakers so that when you grab your next pair, planning your ensemble will be a walk in the park.

“Don't be afraid to step outside your norm when it comes to sneakers. Style a pair with a skirt or dress, not just your traditional jeans or pants. Step outside your comfort zone."

Wear your sneakers with a midi-length skirt and leather jacket like Loren for a feminine and edgy urban ensemble.
