ACCESSORIES REPORT: Swanky Sneakers

If you’re a fan of footwear that’s both fashion forward and functional—then you’re in luck! Sneakers are totally in this season and they’re not just for sports any more. Summer sneakers are the perfect option for the Fashionista who is always on the go. They are fun, comfortable and a great easy-to-wear summer accessory.

The sneaker trend became big this past fall. Designers like Micheal Kors and Giuseppe Zanotti propelled the trend through the seasons with their lines of super cool sneakers. These shoes were not just your average pair of sneakers though. Both designers incorporated lots of detailing in the zipper, straps and laces. The designer creations also have unique touches like studs and tassels all culminating into an overall awesome pair of shoes. So with designs like these, we can see why the trend is still hot this summer.

Our Fashionista rocked a pair similar to the aforementioned designer ones. She sported a white pair with silver stud detailing on the tongue of the shoes and a chain draped across the laces. She paired her sneakers with rolled-up dark wash jeans, a tan coat and a black hat. Our Fashionista makes her shoes stand out by pairing them with more neutral pieces. Her footwear has a lot of detail so choosing simpler attire creates a focal point and avoids making the ensemble look overwhelmed.

Aside from looking all around rad, this trend is also easy to wear. If you choose a pair of sneakers similar to the ones our Fashionista is wearing throw on a pair of skinny jeans and colorful V-neck and your look is good to go. Keeping the rest of your outfit minimal is a great way to make your sneakers the centerpiece of your look. If you want to try something a little more funky try wearing a pair of sneakers that are high-toped or in a daring color like electric blue or silver. Pair them with some colored skinny jeans and a printed top. The look is amplified but the solid color of the skinny jeans provides a break between your statement footwear and your printed top. Overall, pulling the look together and still showcasing your shoes as the focal point of the outfit.

So dying to get your own pair of swanky sneakers? ASOS has a super cool pair that I am currently obsessed with. They are white with silver detailing- quite similar to the ones our Fashionista is wearing. Nordstrom is also a great place to look. Right now they have a black suede pair with gold zippers—a great choice for the daring Fashionista. So, whether you want to keep your sneaker look simple or go all out, you’ll definitely look super cool rocking this hot summer trend.
