Warmer weather starts the season of floral dresses and bright colors, and the sandal makes its debut to show off a fresh pedicure. But as the temperature warms up, so does the need for a sneaker that’s great to pair with shorts, dresses and distressed skinnies.
Since its introduction in the Chanel spring 2014 couture show, the sneaker has been the “it” shoe of the high end fashion contrast: the classy dress and casual shoe combination. Though the trend is dying out in this area, the sneaker is one of the best stables to have for the busy Fashionista in college. What better way to keep the trend alive than by rocking one of the most famous and account friendly pair, Chuck Taylors? Officially known under the brand name Converse, Chuck Taylor sneakers are versatile, cute and extremely comfortable.
Nike running shorts (also referred to as norts) are perfect for exercising, running errands and walking around campus in. This Fashionista shows us how to wear them while mixing and matching sporty clothes with a chic sweater and great jewelry to create a fashionable look. The sweater over the T-shirt adds a touch of chicness and keeps you warm in cold classrooms.
Adding the right accessories to your outfit is the best way to create the perfect high-low effect. A mix of bangles, bracelets and a watch serves as a cool way to show off multiple textures and colors on your wrists. This Fashionista shows that simple neck jewelry is best when you’re heavy on wrist wear.
How To: Pairing high-top Converse with shorts and dresses works because they elongate your legs. Adding a fun pair of socks will add flair and personality to the look. Rock the low Converse with anything, and you’re sure to be relaxed and comfortable all day.
