You know the saying “April showers bring May flowers?” Well, I hope whoever said that is right, because this month of April I’ve found myself obsessing over shoes, and not particularly the waterproof kind. For us college kids, picking out an outfit to wear to class may be a challenge, but a pair of sneakers or booties can totally change the vibe from “I just woke up,” to, “I’m stepping out on campus in style.” No matter what season of the year it is, shoes can bring a whole outfit together, even if you’re just headed to the gym. Another aspect I love is that shoes can change the same outfit’s look from sporty to chic to casual. Seriously, give a girl (or guy) the right pair of shoes, and they can take over the world.
This Fashionista’s shoes scream an edgy sporty style, while proclaiming a brand we all know and love: adidas. adidas became very popular this year when celebs like Kylie Jenner were seen rocking the trend, so naturally, us Fashionistas and Fashionistos followed. Amidst this constantly changing weather, a warm front allowed this Fashionista to rock the adidas superstar sneakers. Pairing the shoes with skinny jeans, leggings, a dress or skirt allows you to give off entirely different looks. Also, sneakers are comfortable, which is perfect for a day in the city or a trip to the mall.
This Fashionista completes her unique look with a striped sundress and some cute necklaces. Layering an army green bomber jacket over it helps lean more towards that sporty look. And adding the sneakers, she created a totally RAD aesthetic.
How To: Not a fan of the adidas brand? Switch them out for your favorite brand, whether it be Converse or Nike. Just make sure to focus the style of shoes on the look you’re going for.
