7 Sneaker Outfits That Are Making Me Want to Toss Out All My Heels

I’m not going to lie—there’s nothing like a great pair of heels to boost my confidence and make me feel altogether polished, but even as a kitten-heel lover, over the past few seasons, I’ve slowly become a sneaker devotee, mostly thanks to the plethora of genius sneaker outfits I’ve been saving to my Insta collection (not to mention the practicality and comfort they provide after recently having a baby). Either way, sneakers have been on my mind. So today, I’m sharing some of the most enticing sneaker outfits I’ve recently bookmarked that will make even the most ardent heel lover want to toss them out in favor of some cushy soles. From sneaker-and-dress pairings to sneaker-and-suit ensembles, scroll below for plenty of inspiration to elevate your sneaker game this season.

Who says you can't wear sneakers with your suit? The sartorial duo is by far one of the most popular pairings among the fashion set—adding just the right amount of casual to your polished, tailored separates. Add interest by layering your look (overcoat over blazer over shirt) and opt for chunky running shoes for a modern look.

Give a billowy, long floral dress a laid-back look by adding a casual-cool pair of kicks in a neutral hue so it doesn't compete with the print. Keep the rest of your look pulled-together and polished with a structured handbag and chic camel coat.

There is so much here to love! A pair of luxe-looking leather shorts and a refined blouse is such a chic and trendy contrast to pair with cool running shoes.

Retro sneakers are having a major moment right now, and the easiest way to wear them is with a pair of vintage-inspired straight-leg jeans. Finish the throwback look with a wide-collar shirt over an oversize blazer.

Your next airport outfit, found! Sweats and sneakers are the perfect off-duty duo—which looks even sleeker when you give your ensemble a head-to-toe tonal look. Give the casual pairing an elevated touch by adding a sophisticated cream coat. 

As our floral skirts come out of hibernation this spring, the coolest way to wear them is with a pair of athletic sneakers. We'll be copying this look as soon as the temps start to rise.

Fashion girls have been all over colorful sneakers this season, and while your first thought might be to tone down the rest of your outfit, for a statement look, give your whole ensemble the colorful treatment.
