An outfit consisting of sneakers and a skirt typically sounds like the handiwork of your five-year-old sister. If that’s the case, then this Fashionista has a little sister with the style prowess of a seasoned editor. With the advent of the wedge sneaker à la Isabel Marant, trainers are no longer reserved for running shorts or the gym. So yes, they’re completely acceptable to wear with just about anything outside of workout wear—meaning a skirt and wedge sneakers are a match made in heaven.
This Fashionista spotted outside of the library approached the wedge sneaker trend in an entirely novel way. Sure, she could have paired them with something evoking a more boyish flair, but that would be expected. As every Fashionista enjoys a nice challenge, she looked to the other end of the spectrum for ultra-femme pieces instead. A flowy floral skirt counteracts that casual air of her sneakers, while her cream pompom knit sweater adds quite a bit of texture to her look. Plum-colored tights underneath and a classic blue Coach bag slung over her shoulder, she appeared a far cry from what your average college student looks like when he or she goes off to a study session.
Wearing heels to class may be a little over the top, but wedge sneakers are the perfect option for those who still want a little lift while maintaining their comfort level.
