When Isabel Marant launched her now-famous high-top, Velcro-fastened sneakers, celebrities and street style stars alike immediately took to them while each giving the casual shoes her own twist. It’s probably safe to say that we have been exposed to this type of shoe worn every sleek and chic way possible via internet; they’ve been seen styled with skinny jeans, black slacks, skirts and even dresses. However there was still one way I had yet to see this shoe style worn, and that way was on the feet of a fellow college student. When I spotted this Fashionista on campus I noticed that her way of styling the trend was not only adorable but also made for a cool and casual look.
This Fashionista wore her black Velcro high-tops with a striped shirt, blue jacket and black leggings and she finished off the look with a beige and blue scarf. What I loved most about her outfit was the fact that she was able to take a trendy piece and still allow it to represent her own personal style. She looked adorable, on trend and, most importantly, herself while rocking her kicks on campus.
Are you ready to delve into the Velcro sneaker trend? If you’re convinced that you’ll get loads of wear out of these shoes (which you most definitely will, as proven by many a versatile street-style shot!) and cannot live without them, you should definitely consider buying the original wedged Isabel Marant high-tops. If you’re still a little wary about diving in right away and just want to experiment, opt for a pair from Charlotte Russe or ASOS.
So, Fashionistas, think about trying out your own pair fresh, high-top kicks, and go ahead and find a way to incorporate them into your personal style. You might just fall head-over-heels in love with them.
