The Best Outfit to Wear With Sneakers, According to French It-Girl Tina Kunakey

About three years ago, I published a story about the affordable items I repurchase again and again. At the very top of my list? A pair of Superga 2750 Cotu Sneakers ($69). So when I checked my inbox and saw an offer to interview French model and actress Tina Kunakey, Superga's newest ambassador, I jumped at the chance.

Given her impeccable style, I wanted to ask Kunakey where she gets her fashion inspiration from. "My mood really inspires me, and also the place where I am," she says. "I don't really get my inspiration from Instagram or runway shows. I love going to shows, but at the end of the day, it's a show. For example, I'm not really into wearing head-to-toe runway looks because I won't be able to wear them in real life. I try to personalize them in my own way so they fit me better." 

I also asked Kunakey what her favorite outfit to wear with sneakers is, and her answer was supremely relatable. "I would say a tank top, denim shorts, and the Superga 2750 Cotu sneakers." Sounds like my ideal outfit, too. Keep scrolling for pieces you can use to re-create it.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
