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
