Rockin’ with the untraditional sneaker combo

It is given: street style loves sneakers.

That is why fashion enthusiasts have been trying to incorporate sneakers into all kinds of wardrobes. However, not everyone is successful in combining old outfits with today’s sneakers. The truth of the matter is that unexpected pieces like skater skirts, mini-dresses, and midi skirts are great with sneakers. But, it is easier said than done.

Many fashionistas know that attempting to style one’s self in this outfit isn’t as easy as it seems. That is why in an attempt to help, many have given their tips.

1. Choose your sneakers wisely. The foundation of a great unexpected sneaker combination is a great pair of sneakers. The goal is to create an outfit that looks relaxed, modern, and sleek. If you’re going to wear running shoes, look for flatter, streamlined styles like the Nike Free RN in black. Classic Adidas give most outfits a more urban touch. Converse are also a fantastic option to make a look appear more playful and easy.

2. Pay attention to proportion. Unlike pumps, slingbacks, or nude flats, which visually elongate the leg, sneakers tend to have the opposite effect. When paired with an item like a midi skirt or a bohemian dress, sneakers can make a wearer look stocky or awkward. That’s why fit and proportion are so important. In general, sneakers look better when coupled with shorter hemlines. For an urban, high-low outfit, try pairing them with a skater skirt and T-shirt. For a more feminine, 60s-mod ensemble, try combining a pair of sneakers with a mini skirt or dress. If you’re thinking of experimenting with sneakers and a midi skirt, start out with a tighter-fitting piece that hits just below the knee; a monochromatic theme will help to give the illusion of length and make your outfit appear more cohesive.

3. Strive for purpose. When trying to develop an unexpected sneaker combination, you want to look like you originally intended to pair your outfit with sneakers. Sporting sneakers with a suit, for example, will make it seem as if you’re a tired employee commuting to the office; wearing them with an overly-busy, messy outfit can make it appear like the sneakers were a sloppy afterthought. To create intent, treat your sneakers like they’re the centerpiece of your ensemble; all other pieces should revolve around them.

How to Wear & Style Your Sneakers This Winter

11 Dec

If there is one thing young ladies cannot let go of, it would be the sneakers. However, many girls still struggle on how to wear their comfy tomboyish yet chic sneakers, especially during winter season. So, here are a few tips from Sneakteens!

The wedge sneakers are amazing with skinny jeans. But, they also look great with skirts or shorts (or skorts) worn with tights. It’s the winter season anyway, so you have to dress as much as you can to keep you warm. For the upper wear, any tops will do, but do not forget your coats, parkas, leather jackets or length faux-fur ones. This is another way of staying sporty, even with heels. Giuseppe Zanotti sure has wedge sneaker designs you will surely love.giuseppe-zanotti

For the rocker and punk-y chicks, studded, spiked and the like kinds of sneakers are available. To nail that look, wear them with cut-offs and black tights or leather leggings and a slouchy, oversized top. Complete your winter rock star look with a beanie and huge scarf to keep you warm.

For the workaholic ladies who are required to sport a casual look at work, the chucks, dunks, or vans are best for you. Wear them with skinny trousers, T-shirt or a classic blouse and a blazer on top. It gives you that smart, professional look, while staying absolutely stylish and warm. Of course, who would forget the casual Champion Keds?keds-champion-stars-sneakers-for-women-in-black~p~5487p_04~1500.3

 

The truth is, no matter what you pair with your sneakers, I am sure you will look gorgeous and stunning. That’s how sneakers should work in the first place.

Matching Your Keds With A Fashionable Outfit

23 Oct

You tend to think of sneakers as casual wear that can’t really be matched with a fashionable outfit for all occasions, but that really doesn’t have to be the case. Keds have a history of making sneakers that can be perfectly matched with designer clothing without in any way cheapening the overall look. The wide variety of colors that are available in the Keds lineup make matching outfits that much easier, so let’s take a little look at what you can do with the Keds sneakers that may already be sitting in your closet.

One of the most commonly asked questions, especially after Labor Day, is how to wear white Keds in a way that doesn’t break the cardinal rule of no white after that holiday. The easiest way to get by is to go with an outfit that is perfect for the fall season that takes the focus away from the white shoes, all whilst still using them as the perfect complement. A darker pair of jeans, such as the J Brand skinny jeans is one way to do that. Add the Elizabeth and James Button-up Top and you have a great little look for fall that is both comfortable and incredibly stylish.

If you are one of those that simply refuse to wear white into fall, why not switch to another color that is still bright yet season appropriate? Blue is a color that is great for any season and which offers up all kinds of matching options. If you want to know what goes with blue Keds, you need to start off with a specific shoe in mind. There are all different shades of blue in the Keds lineup, including a few in the Taylor Swift Collection that are ripe for matching.

In many places across the country, the fall weather is still mild enough that a dress can still be worn out without you feeling too chilly. Taylor Swift has a definite style that teenage girls love to follow, with cute dresses commonly matched up with Keds style sneakers. For example, a pair of Taylor’s Champion Paw Dot Sneakers look as though they were made to be worn with the Opening Ceremony Floral Dress available at therealreal.com. If the weather is a little chilly, that outfit can be finished off with a cute little denim jacket or some other style that covers the exposed arms.

One of the great things about Keds sneakers is that they are stylish enough to be worn with something that would be considered a little dressier. The Diane Von Furstenberg Halted Dress is an example of an outfit that is definitely a little classier, yet also cool enough for casual wear. If looking for a pair of Keds to wear with it, why not give the blue and white Champion Cross Stitch shoes? Part of the fun of buying new clothes is finding ways to match outfits with shoes, and that gets a whole lot more fun when you use Keds as the starting point.

Keds outfits with dresses for young women 2012!

23 Apr

With all the new Keds sneakers that have come out for the 2012 year, there is a need to coordinate the right type of outfits to wear with your Keds sneakers. Keds fashion is quickly becoming a great fashion statement and Keds are definitely a women geared sneaker trend. Many women are wearing Keds, and with good reason, there are so many fantastic new Keds sneakers that have come out recently. The questions is, how to wear Keds? And, the answer lies in keeping a casual and cool vibe to whatever you happen to pair with your Keds sneakers.

Maxi skirts look great with the new Keds sneakers. Any type of maxi skirt in a cotton or other casual material is ideal. Pair your Keds sneakers and maxi skirt with a trendy crop top. The maxi skirt you wear with your Keds can be black or brightly colored, but the rule is that whatever color your skirt happens to be, wear your Keds in a different color. Never match your Keds to your skirt, this looks dated and not very unique. When wearing a black skirt, wear a pair of bright red Keds and a gray or white crop top and when wearing a brightly colored maxi skirt, wear a pair of muted white, black or navy Keds.

Dress the outfit you wear with Keds up with lots of jewelry. The best item to wear with your Keds is a lot of jewelry. Long, multi-strand necklaces are perfect when paired with your Keds sneakers. Big hoop earrings or lots of bracelets also make a statement, when pairing them with your Keds.

Don’t forget to wear your Keds with florals and prints. Keds look great with all types of prints and especially florals and nautical stripes. Pair your Keds with a floral and chiffon dress or a striped top and Capri pants. The great thing about Keds sneakers is they match with prints very well.

What do you wear Keds canvas sneakers with?

25 Feb

Keds sneakers are a staple with children, teens and adults. They look great with everything and are comfortable to boot. The best types of outfits to wear with Keds sneakers are casual and fun; spring and summer looks. But, it is also interesting to change it up a bit and pair your Keds sneakers with a floral dress or denim skirt.

Keds sneakers come in all colors of the rainbow. But, their most famous and most popular shoe is the white Keds sneaker. Red Keds look great with jeans and jean shorts and navy Keds pair amazingly with Capri white jeans or a summer dress. Always remember that Keds sneakers look best with no socks or very low socks. This looks both clean and chic.

Here are some looks to try when sporting your Keds sneakers:

 1. There is nothing better than wearing your all-around great looking white Keds sneakers with slouchy Capri pants in beige. A white shirt tops off this look, along with a black jacket. This entire outfit is great for spring afternoons going shopping or even to a barbecue. The idea is that it is a relaxed look that is both fashionable and cute.

The other outfit, paired with the popular white Keds sneakers is a casual blue dress and a scarf. The scarf brings a pop of color to the ensemble and the bright blue looks great alongside the stark white of the Keds. This outfit is easy to wear and looks very comfortable.

Both of the ladies in these pictures decided to wear their white Keds sneakers sans socks; which looks perfect!

2. This lady knows how to wear her navy Keds beautifully. She is wearing a white dress with navy piping and a navy bow. She added a pink bracelet for some color along with a navy blue headband. She looks put together and pretty. This outfit is perfect for a spring or summer day.

3. Red Keds look great with navy blue. Wearing a navy blue dress is the perfect addition to red Keds. The dress looks casual, but unique with its asymmetrical hemline. The dress could almost look elegant, but pairing it with the red Keds puts the outfit into a class of its own. The red Keds bring a lightheartedness feel to the dress and this ensemble could go from day to night easily with no changes or additions.

4. Pairing multicolored Keds sneakers with a romper is the perfect daytime outfit. The Keds are blue and maroon and look great paired with a romper complete with a brown belt and head wrap. The necklaces and purse complete the casual, but stylish outfit. Multicolored Keds look best when paired with solid colors, especially when one of the colors of the shoe matches the color of the outfit.

5. Pairing navy Keds sneakers with red shorts and a navy printed t-shirt looks different and amazing. The navy Keds are comfortable to wear and adding the red shorts adds a fun twist to the usual denim shorts. The printed t-shirt accompanies the navy Keds and red shorts well and balances out the look.

6. Keds can even be paired with winter attire. These Keds sneakers look great when paired with rolled up pants, a scarf and a long cardigan. The fact of pulling the hair into a bun and sunglasses make this look very fashionable. When winter comes around, don’t put your Keds sneakers in the back of your closet, and pair them with your sweaters and even jackets. The best rule of thumb for this look is to layer separates for a slouchy feel and roll up your pants to show off your Keds.

 

7. Red Keds paired with a black skirt, polka dot tights, a striped shirt, blazer, suspenders and a pirate styled hat is reserved for the bold. Personally, I would take off the tights, suspenders and hat and there is a very cute outfit lurking within. Wearing it all together is definitely noticeable, but not for everybody. Although, red Keds paired with black and white, a skirt and a blazer looks distinctive and well put together.

Anyways, just keep experimenting with new styles for keds and sneakers! It’s when you are bold and brave you attract a lot of attention!
