It’s finally time for fall weather! Or it’s about it be! Either way, the sandals are heading into hibernation, but the booties are still a few degrees away. Sneakers are the happy, comfy, cute AF medium your going-out outfits have been searching for. Finding a balance between uptown-chic and downtown-cool can be a challenge, but thankfully we’ve put together a few formulas that should hit the nail on the (sneaker)head.
Cheetah print is back with a vengeance, and we love to see it pouncing around on our toes. Big cat prints pair nicely with black, of course, but also complement #millennialpink pretty smoothly as well. Dangling earrings dress up the look while the sneakers anchor the chill, downtown vibes. A (faux!) snakeskin bag is the perfect almost-clashing pattern to complete the look.
Metallic sneakers are a wild card ingredient, so go ahead and let them steal the outfit spotlight. A textured croc-skin skirt and sheer green top keep things interesting without bombarding the look with color. A patent leather bucket hat saves you from bad hair days and sudden downpours, while the chic structured bag elevates the ensemble to elegance.
This one gets a little more flirtatious and feminine; we told you cheetah was back, didn’t we!? Over-the-knee socks under sock sneakers is too fun to resist, while still showing off that sweet section of upper thigh between the hem and high-tops. A ribbed scrunchie with a bow is the sweetest contrast to the street-savvy sneakers, and a glitzy bag keeps this look squarely in the girly girl category, but a girly girl who cares about foot comfort.
Listen to us now and buy yourself a blazer since you’ll already be seeing them adorning every other shoulder on the street this fall. Pair the snazzy jacket with a soft and flowy romper and platform sneakers to imitate the lengthening effects of high heels without crying over split blisters the next morning. Geometric jewelry imitates the corners of the coat, and an all-white bag adds to the chic business-lady look of the blazer.
