Wearing sneakers with dresses is obviously a thing these days, especially in the warmer months. You've probably seen the look on street style stars, celebs, and bloggers, and even worn it yourself. But typically, the sneakers that fashion girls pair with dresses are more of the old-school or "retro" variety, as opposed to athletic sneakers, which are usually paired with leggings and denim, or reserved for the gym. Pairing them with dresses or skirts was formerly considered a sneaker "faux pas." But the sartorial risk-taking It girl Hailey Baldwin may have just proven that athletic sneakers are more versatile than you think.
We've certainly seen examples of the street style set thinking outside the box when it comes to styling athletic sneakers, but Baldwin's pairing of sporty Adidas sneakers with an off-the-shoulder mini dress this week in Los Angeles was a fresh look for someone in the celebrity set. The combination of the summery dress and white athletic sneakers felt effortless and just different enough to turn heads (in a good way). We, for one, plan on trying out this easy summer outfit soon, thanks to Baldwin's inspiring sneaker choice. Want to join us?
