STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: High-Top Twist

April 20th, 2016 at 2:00am

The sneaker trend has been blowing up the fashion world thanks to celebrity stylist Monica Rose. From Gigi Hadid to Kendall Jenner, everyone has opted for a cool pair of sneakers rather than an uncomfortable pair of heels. There has been a sudden surge in the amount of people rocking high-tops, and I don’t blame them. What’s better than looking chic and remaining comfortable while doing it?

High-top sneakers have been around years, of course, but we’ve never seen them like we see them now. Designers are embellishing them with studs, sequins, fur—you name it. No matter your taste or style, you’re sure to find a pair of high-tops out there for you. Another perk to high-tops? They’re not hard to pull off, and you can pair them with virtually anything. Take this Fashionista’s outfit for example.

While a majority of people correlate high-top sneakers with athleisure, this Fashionista styled her high-top Converse in a more feminine way. She grabbed a ribbed black T-shirt dress as her base layer. To keep out the chill, she put on a cream colored knit cardigan. Accessories are vital to any look, and this Fashionista knew that. She polished everything off with a purple beaded necklace and some oversized sunglasses.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I like to dress in more simple colors and style it up with jewelry, and in this case, sneakers. I love to feel casual and comfortable, but I also love to get dressed up more when need be. I really think this outfit captures that feeling.”
