It comes in every style imaginable: platform, chunky, lace-up, high-top, you name it. It also happened to be summer’s favorite shoe: the white sneaker. Now, these versatile kicks are shaping up to be a year-round staple. They’re the perfect finishing touch to any outfit and can be found in so many different styles. Odds are, there’s a pair suited for everyone’s taste. I love white sneakers for winter and fall because they go with everything. They’re also comfortable enough to wear for all of my favorite festivities. Not sure how to rock your fav white sneaks into colder weather? We’ve got you covered. Here are 14 outfits with white sneakers to help you get inspired.
Pair Them with a Cozy Cardigan
Nothing says comfortable and cute like a good cardigan. Throw on a pair of white sneaks (they’ll match basically any sweater you choose) for an outfit perfect for shopping, apple picking, or just strolling around campus.
Try an All-White Outfit
Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day was lying. Pair your favorite white sneakers with a white dress for a monochrome look that’s both fashion-forward and easy to wear.
Break up an All-Black Outfit
Speaking of monochrome, why not add a little interest to an all-black outfit? White sneakers are the perfect balance of unexpected and subtle to elevate your look.
Make a Fur Coat a Little More Casual
There’s nothing wrong with being a little bougie, but sometimes you want to err on the side of casual. In that case, rock a fur coat with white sneakers for a look that’s glam and effortless.
Top off a Pattern-Heavy Look
White sneakers are the perfect addition to an outfit with several different patterns. White goes with anything and takes away the chance of pattern clashing. Bonus: play with different patterned layers like jackets and coats for a look that’s sure to turn heads.
Complement a Denim-on-Denim ’Fit
When styled right (i.e., maybe not like the iconic JT and Britney all-denim look from the 2001 AMA’s), denim-on-denim makes for a super Insta-worthy look. White sneakers add the perfect non-denim finishing touch.
Choose a Chunky Shoe
Want height, but don’t want to wear heels? Try a chunky sneaker (lovingly referred to as the “dad sneaker”). They’re a unique twist on your average white sneaker that adds height while still being super comfortable. Plus, they’re so on trend.
Forget Heels—Try Sneakers with Your Favorite Maxi Dress
Still feeling anti-heels? Throw on white sneakers with your favorite maxi dress for a show-stopping, cool-girl ’fit.
Go Bold by Pairing Them with a Leopard Midi Skirt
Leopard print has also been a huge hit this season, so why not double up on trends? Try a cool pair of chunky white sneakers with a leopard midi-skirt for a look that’s it-girl approved.
Finish off a Casual, Cold-Weather Approved Outfit
White sneakers are the epitome of casual-cool, so opt for them when you need an outfit that’s cute and practical. Pair them with jeans and your favorite sweater and coat combo for an easy cold-weather look!
Pair Chunky Sneaks with Your Favorite Flares
The ’70s are calling; they want you to keep those flares because you look good. Complement them with a pair of white chunky sneakers and you’ve got yourself a very Instagrammable fall look.
Emphasize Raw Hem Denim with High-Tops
Raw hem denim is all the rage right now. Emphasize yours with white high tops that lead the eye right to those perfectly destroyed ends!
Throw Them on with Your Comfiest Sweatshirt
Who doesn’t love a good, comfy outfit? For a look that’s perfect for class or running errands, throw on a sweatshirt and jeans and finish the look off with your coolest white sneakers.
Mix up a Matching Set
If you don’t want to be too matchy-matchy when rocking a set, throw on some white sneakers. The difference in color will mix it up just enough without clashing.
