We all felt the dread. In lieu of the sleek trench coats and classic denim jackets that constituted our fall wardrobes, our closets were quickly filled with the winter coats and chunky snow boots we didn’t want to wear. Although winter approached late this year, the signature chill of the season has finally set in. This leaves every Fashionista/o asking the same question: How do we look good in this weather?

Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Despite being an obvious exaggeration on this article of clothing, I can’t deny it—I love shoes. Since, they really make or break an outfit. I would hate to sacrifice my personal taste in footwear because of the temperature drop. One way to keep warm yet stay trendy is pairing an outfit with white sneakers.

Sneakers have always been an athletic shoe. So, don’t reach for winter footwear that won’t complement your look. Instead, you can easily incorporate a pair of white adidas into your wardrobe. It’s a quickly spreading trend. They’re polished, comfortable, warm and go with every shade in your closet. It’s no wonder that white sneakers have become a popular alternative to traditional shoes of the season. Overall, their versatility allows you to play it safe with a pair of jeans or throw on a flirty T-shirt dress to exude an air of athletic-chic.

This Fashionista chose to complete her monochromatic look with Nike Air Max shoes. Wearing all-black is a classic option because it offers the ability to dress the outfit up or down. Plus, it is a trademark of this frosty, overcast season. To break the simplicity of a single color wardrobe, add a pair of knee ripped jeans to your collection. Shying away from a hyper-feminine look, she chose to throw on an olive bomber jacket reminiscent of military wear and accessorize with a Casio gold watch.
