It’s amazing what a little change in weather can do for our wardrobes—suddenly we find ourselves switching darker color palettes out for spring-ready brights and banishing our heaviest layers to the back of our closets. The only constant, sartorially speaking? Our affinity for a versatile pair of wear-anywhere sneakers. That’s right: The fashion-favorite shoe style isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
As for the specifics, there’s one brand we’ve been noticing on the feet of street style stars and A-listers alike this spring: Kenneth Cole. So if you’re looking to freshen up your wardrobe for the new season, you’d be well advised to start from the ground up. Anchor your spring looks with a cool new pair of sneakers from the iconic brand, and then take into account some of our favorite spring outfit formulas.
Easy, no? Read on to see the four looks we think you’ll be wearing all season long.
No need to reserve sneakers for more casual ensembles—for spring, opt for a slip-on style paired with a silk skirt and a mini bag. Accessorize with statement earrings and you could totally wear this look to a fancier event like an early dinner.
Why platform sneakers? They’re perfect for making a subtle statement, and they tap into fashion’s current obsession with all things ’90s related. As for the outfit, keep your color palette monochromatic—we love a good play on pink.
Classic sneakers are always in style, and this season, we’re loving versions with a touch of print. Looking for a spring-ready work outfit? Style this pair of sneakers with polished pieces like a blazer and a structured bag.
