I once overhead a girl say that white sneakers are prettier when dirty. It wasn’t this Fashionista, but I’m sure she too agrees with that saying. That’s how I noticed her—her casual grunge look really suited her.
My favorite item in this look is, obviously, her pair of shoes. Your shoes really tell a story about where you’re going and where you have been. For this Fashionista, we can tell that she has been to a lot of places. This is true because she is a student-tourist! So if you are worried that your white sneakers are too dirty, don’t worry. Put them on with pride, it shows that you’ve been places. If you’re looking for light-colored shoes to “pretty up,” Converse has a wide selection of sneakers. Keds also carries an equally good selection.
I also like the simplicity of this girl’s look. Students, much like tourists, need to dress for comfort. The best feeling is being so relaxed that you forget what you have on! You can speed walk from class to class and work your butt off without feeling any discomfort. A plain top with a pair of jeans is always the way to go. H&M has a whole section of basics for guys and girls.
Summer is coming up, and some of you may be traveling. Pack and dress for comfort! You also don’t need to buy a new pair of sneakers if yours are a little dirty. Wear your grungy sneakers with pride, and show that you’ve been places! I am.
