Wearing sneakers with dresses has become a trend in recent years. What was once a shoe for strictly exercise or a casual day out, has turned into an everyday, even dress up shoe option! Have you ever wanted to try this trend, but don’t know where to start? Check out our tips, tricks and suggestions for selecting the perfect outfit, and sneaker, for any occasion!
The difficult part of styling dresses with sneakers, is figuring out what pair of sneakers to buy and pair with dresses. Although there is an array of colorways and even prints that have become popular on sneakers, white sneakers are the easiest option to pair with multiple dress styles. If you are new to this trend, or are looking to dip your toe in the water a little bit with the style, limit your search for sneakers to white and neutral colored options. Most, if not all, types of dresses go well with white sneakers, including casual cotton day dresses, more formal satin dresses, summer sun dresses, and even prom dresses! Whether you are dressing for comfort or putting together a trendy and modern ensemble, you can’t go wrong with a classic white sneaker!
Another great closet style that can easily be paired with sneakers is a midi skirt. Midi skirts come in a variety of materials and prints, but we specifically love a satin midi skirt. A satin midi skirt paired with sneakers creates a chill, cool girl vibe while also maintaining an appropriate, put together look for many different functions. Throw on a blazer for a day at the office, or opt for a graphic tee or tank, knotted up for a night on the town. Don’t forget to throw on your favorite pair of sneakers to complete this on trend look! From high top, to athletic options and even a simple pair of slip on sneakers, you can’t go wrong when you pair this shoe with a skirt.
Of course the go to footwear when styling athleisure looks is a sneaker. Comfort is key when selecting the right shoe with athletic leggings or matching lounge sets, so look no further than your favorite sneaker! From sweatshirts or joggers, to yoga pants or shorts, pairing your favorite sneakers with these options will have you rocking a simple yet polished look. Throw your hair up with a scrunchie or claw clip, and don’t forget to grab your favorite jute tote, and you’re ready for any causal outing!
Finally, a classic pair of denim is another go-to option that pairs perfectly with sneakers. We love a cropped pair of jeans styled with a fun pair of sneakers, perfect for showing off your fancy footwear! Opt for a sneaker with a pattern such as leopard, or even bright fun summer colors to jazz up your denim look! Whether you are rocking flare cropped jeans, skinny ankle jeans, or raw hem straight leg jeans, you can’t go wrong with a fun pair of sneakers! Dress your look up with a printed blouse or tank, or down with a neutral top or cardigan for an effortless outfit that is still sure to wow.

“I love wearing athletic sneakers with dresses! I have two different colorways that are my go to’s, and I will style them depending on the color of the dress I’m wearing. Sneakers are the perfect way to dress down a dress, but still feel confident even when I wear them to the office.”- Jillian, Public Relations Intern
“I love wearing sneakers that have a pop of color in them, especially pink! When wearing colorful sneakers I usually tend to wear more neutral color clothing to balance out the entire look. On the other hand, when I wear bright, fun patterned dresses I will choose more subtle sneakers. Sneakers are s comfortable yet, super stylish with any outfit!”- Jadie, Ecommerce & Marketing Coordinator
“I love wearing sneakers with a sparkle or extra accent on them that make them unique. I prefer simpler, neutral color clothing, so having a pair of sneakers that can add interest and pizazz to my look is perfect! I am a sucker for styling sneakers with dresses and do it often when I am dressing for the office or a day date with my husband.”- Ashley, Digital Marketing Manager
Choosing a sneaker to wear with any look is easy when you choose exactly what you like! Sneaker styles are a fun, fashion forward option for any outfit, but selecting what fits your personality and unique personal style is always the best way to feel confident in this look!
