STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Ain't Nobody Messing With My Kicks

Tiptoeing in my…New Balance. It is evident that the sneaker trend is extremely popular right now and models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are helping to fuel it. The sneaker trend is fascinating, because the majority of styles that are currently popular have been around for quite some time. Vans, adidas, Nike—you name it and it was probably popular when we were all in middle school. Sneakers are back and trendier than ever, maybe that is because we stopped pairing them with gauchos. I personally love the sneaker trend, because they are incredibly easy to pair with any outfit, which allows me to look cute and trendy, but feel comfortable knowing that I’m wearing supportive shoes.

Sneakers are exceptionally versatile so there are many directions you can go when considering what to pair them with. This Fashionista was able to create a casual outfit for class with her favorite pair of New Balance sneakers. This look is very easy to pull together, because it only requires staple pieces that every girl will already have sitting in her closet. Her black jeans are the perfect complement to her outfit, because they add a peak of interest with the ripped detailing. Her oversized cardigan is also great for keeping her warm while sitting in chilly classrooms and during her walk to class. Accessorize this outfit with your favorite pair of sunglasses and you are set for any casual occasion. This outfit can transition into any season by substituting the sneakers for flip flops and ditching the cardigan when the weather starts to warm up.
