Yep, These Sneakers Are Totally HR-Approved

In 2019, it's more common than ever to wear sneakers to work. For many, the daily commute is already reason enough to skip the heels while en route to the office, and then it only makes sense to keep them off for a jam-packed day of meetings, no? Trainers, the ultimate comfort shoe, have become an unrivaled footwear choice among the fashion set, fusing fashion with function—and that, dear readers, is the ultimate power duo.

Cool kicks have become essential on the 2019 street style scene, where flared jeans, bike shorts, and cropped trousers have become mainstays. But sneakers become all the more striking when juxtaposed with super-refined wardrobe pieces. You know, the ones you typically reach for Monday through Friday, like a pencil skirt, a flowy shift dress, or a suit set.
