ALL IN THE DETAILS: A Spin On A Classic

April 13th, 2015 at 2:10am

The classic “All-Star” sneakers by Converse have been on the market for about 100 years. Nicknamed “Chuck Taylor,” these shoes represent the American sneaker. Foreigners on vacation to America will purchase a pair of these shoes to say they bought Chuck Taylor sneakers in America. In a way, buying Chuck Taylor sneakers in America is similar to buying Chanel in Paris, or Valentino in Italy. These classic sneakers are making a comeback and in a huge way. Many fashion brands are marketing their version of this sneaker-], and the masses are accepting it tremendously well.

This Fashionista caught my attention with her seemingly effortless take on the classic sneakers. First off, the height of the sneakers has been cut to ankle length, which makes the shoe much more versatile than All-Star sneakers. Due to the short length of the shoes, this Fashionista is able to pair the sneakers with capris. Also, the rounded toe provides a slimming shape to the foot. With the short height and round toe, these shoes appear to have a more feminine look than the classic All-Star sneakers.

Girls that consider themselves to be “girly” are jumping on the fashion sneaker bandwagon. Suddenly, girls are wearing sneakers with dresses, skirts and jeans, and they actually look really cute. Currently, any retailer with college-aged students as their target market is producing these sneakers. So, for all the Fashionistas and Fashionistos who want to experiment with stylish sneakers, go find the pair that is right for you!

How To: First, start off by wearing a basic pair of jeans. Either cuff the jeans or leave them long, whichever is your prerogative. Then, find a comfortable, yet casual blouse to go with the jeans. Finish the look off with a pair of your favorite sneakers.
