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.

New colorful keds fashion!

28 Aug

Sneakers have gone well beyond being a functional shoe used for athletic endeavors, and are now considered to be more of a fashion statement than ever before. The proof of this can be found in the bold colors and style now seen on Keds and other well-known brands, all of whom have gone with colorful designs that are meant to appeal to the fashion conscious woman who wants something more comfortable on her feet than a pair of high heels. Fashion sneakers are now considered an essential part of every woman’s closet, and if you don’t yet have a pair in there, it’s time to take a look at what you are missing.

One of the most popular lines of fashionable women’s sneaker is the colorful high Keds that are as stylish as they are bright. The DC Rebound Hi lineup delivers a bright assortment of sneakers that fit perfectly into this mold, bringing women the perfect combination of form, fashion and functionality. Let’s take a look at a few of the shoes available in that line and how they might fit in with a particular style sensibility.

Girls that love to show off their bright fashion style by wearing bold colors such as pinks and purples will get a real kick out of the DC Rebound Hi SE W, which comes in a rather ominous sounding Battleship Purple.

While purple may be considered the main color, there are in fact several others found within the design of the show. These sneakers are a perfect fit for women that like to go with more than one single color in their clothing, or who display a lot of color in their accessories. You will definitely get noticed walking down the street in these sneakers.

If that style seems a little too garish for your fashion pallet, you might instead consider going with a sneaker that settle on one particular color. The DC Rebound Hi with Cockatoo White is a perfect example of that.

The sneakers are predominantly a pale blue and black combination, with a little splash of white thrown in for good measure. These are the perfect sneakers for the girl that likes to wear jeans and go with a nice dash of color in the shirt and accessories she uses to match up. The shoes have enough color to be bright and playful, yet subdued enough to suit those ladies that would rather not have their shoes stand out.

It’s not every lady that is in love with color, though, which is where the black DC Rebound Hi W might be a good selection.

This is more than just a basic black sneaker, as it also has some silver touches that embrace a little bit of pattern. These are sneakers that can be worn out to the club, with those little silver splashes allowing for a cool animal print to be worn along with a pair of jeans or black pants. About as basic as this sneaker lineup gets, but still well within the fashion sneaker mold.

Wear keds and stay elegant this summer

30 Jun

Summertime is the perfect season to have some fun outdoors, and Keds are the perfect shoes to wear on all of your adventures. Here are four outfit ideas that are awesome for the summer!

Outfit #1: A Stroll on The Boardwalk
The nautical look is everywhere this summer, and Keds’ Starbird Neon shoes are right on trend! Match the cool blue Keds with a sailor inspired top and a pair of loose fitting shorts for a fun day in the sun. We like the white cotton polo with navy stripes from Marc by Marc Jacobs, paired with grey denim cuffed shorts made by Alice + Olivia. Throw in a matching blue and white tote bag designed by Diane von Furstenberg, and you’ve got the perfect outfit to wear on the boardwalk!

Outfit #2: Date Night

Shades of peach have been on the fashion radar since last year, but that doesn’t mean peach isn’t making a comeback for the summer of 2013! The peachy Keds Champion Sparkle Lace are adorable, and would look great mixed with other shades of peach and pink. The pretty Diane von Furstenberg silk blouse is flirty and cool for summer. You can wear the blouse with some floral printed jeans by Haute Hippie and Rebecca Minkoff’s peach striped boyfriend bag for an amazing summer date night outfit!

Outfit #3: Visiting the Museum
Sometimes being stuck at home during the summer is boring, so you have to think of new things to do! Going to your local museum or an art show is a fun way to spend an otherwise boring afternoon. Get dressed up and take some photos while you’re there! Keds Champion Dot shoes will keep your feet both comfortable and stylish while you browse. A strapless dress like the one from Acne for Lanvin will keep you cool, and a couple of statement pieces will complete your outfit. Try a ring that matches your shoe color, or a witty 3.1 Phillip Lim pop-art handbag!

Outfit #4: A Day at the Beach

Going to the beach or pool is almost inevitable for most of us during the summer. When the weather gets too hot you can throw on a pair of Beacon Keds and a swim suit; then head for the water! Laura Urbinati makes chic bathing suits for every body type, and you can store your swimwear in a trendy beach bag by Cuval. If you’re going to an outdoor pool, lake or beach, be sure to wear sunscreen and protect your eyes with some sunglasses like the ones from the Just Cavalli line.

What to wear with keds?

21 Jul

This question is asked a lot. I also wear keds very often and sometimes I wonder if a skirt and keds is actually appropriate. I made a research and found some dress patterns you may like and utilize:

1) For teenagers: blue canvas keds, no socks, white tunic or dress. Should be short.

2) For romantic look: long dress (one color) + bright colored scarf and same color canvas keds. In this case pink works great with beige.

3) Going party? Shiny skirt and gangster sneaks work best!

4) On cold days: high white sneakers with stylish velcro laces add style to your classical coat and spaghetti trousers:

5) Nest outfit for colorful bright sneakers: high hilled anckle top sneaks with colored lines and stylish accessories will excite everyone around you:
