Nothing says classic like a pair of Converse. Wearing the old-school sneakers with any outfit instantly adds a timeless but laidback touch, so it’s no wonder they’re still the go-to for many. Yet, as with any item that’s been in our closets for a significant amount of time, it’s easy to fall back on what we know rather than trying to come up with a new look every time we wear it. And while there’s absolutely no harm in pairing your Converse with your trusty jeans-and-tee combination, they can also be worn with so much more than a fallback look. Keep reading for eight new outfits with Converse you can wear this summer to give new life to your most trusted pair of shoes.
Go For a Throwback With Jean Overalls and a Fresh Pair of Sneakers
Feeling the need to upgrade your weekend look? Combine a white button down shirt and jean overalls with your white Converse for an easy combination you can throw on fast.
Dress Down Your Slip Dress With a T-Shirt and High-Tops
If you love a slip dress but don’t want to wear your going-out look all day long, dress it down with some plain black sneakers and a bright T-shirt. Simple accessories like a gold necklace and crossbody bag solidify this as a simple daytime look.
Wear a Structured Blazer With Black Converse for a Casual Take on an Office Classic
Pair Your Sneakers and Jeans With a Silky Camisole for a Lesson in Juxtaposition
Lingerie-as-clothes is having a moment, and we can’t get enough. And while pairing your camisole with your sneakers probably wouldn’t be your first thought, this look is proof that with just the right pieces, it’s actually a match made in heaven.
Give Off Summer Vibes in a Gingham Tank Dress and White High-Tops
Summer break means hot weather, and that calls for your breeziest pieces. We’re loving this gingham tank dress paired with white converse for an outfit that will allow for maximum activities and comfort on even the hottest of days.
Embrace a Monochrome Look With a White Jacket and Matching Shoes
Stumped on what to wear for the day? Monochrome is always our go-to solution. Throw on your white Converse and add a plain T-shirt and white denim jacket to match. If it’s a cooler day, jeans pair well with this look; if not, denim shorts also serve as a great addition.
Put a Spin on Athleisure in a Casual Skirt and Sporty Sneaks
There’s no absolutely no shame in wearing sweats, but when you want to look more put together, your comfy pants and tennis shoes might not do the trick. Instead, opt for a mini skirt made of sweatpants material, and throw on a T-shirt and high-tops for a fashion spin on your typical athleisure look.
Pair ‘70s-Inspired Pants With Bright Red Shoes for an Insta-Worthy ‘Fit
Just because Converse aren’t a new trend doesn’t mean that can’t help your Instagram grid. Choose a pair in a bold color, and pair them with some chic throwback pieces like flared pants and a baker boy cap. It’s old school, upgraded.
