Dallas fashion blogger over 40 wearing veronica beard sneakers with light wash straight leg jeans and a white blazer as an example of how to look chic in sneakers.

One of the biggest style challenges I’ve found in the 12 years I’ve been a stylist and influencer is wearing sneakers and still feeling cute. Anyone else struggle with this?  I typically feel really frumpy when I wear sneakers but I’ve found that when I follow these 3 simple style tips I always end up loving my outfit; and more importantly I feel good in it!

I’ve been living in my sneakers lately because I just got the cutest dog named Dolce.  She is a shih-tzu and when I tell you she is an absolute angel from heaven that would be an understatement.  Since I’ve gotten her I’ve been wearing sneakers a ton since I walk her a few times a day.  So if you’re a sneaker lover like me and want to look chic while wearing them then keep scrolling! Below, I’ve listed 3 style tips guaranteed to elevate all of your sneaker looks this season.

PS – I just got these fabulous Veronica Beard sneakers a few weeks ago and I’ve been living in them because they’re that comfortable and that versatile!  Seriously, every time I wear them I get stopped and asked where I got them so when I tell you to grab them now before they sell out I’m not exaggerating!

VERONICA BEARD SNEAKERS:

As I mentioned earlier, I recently purchased these fabulous Veronica Beard sneakers a few weeks ago, and I’ve been living in them! Seriously, every time I wear them, people stop me and ask where I got them from. I love the hidden platform that adds some extra height without appearing bulky. I adore all 3 gorgeous color patterns they offer! They provide crazy comfort, and as a bonus, I’ve discovered you can wear them without socks and not worry about blisters! If you’re in need of a new pair of casual sneakers, these are your best bet

PAIR WITH ANKLE LENGTH MODERN SKINNY JEANS (UNDER $60 ON SALE):

The first of 3 tips for how to look chic in sneakers is to wear form-fitting modern denim. I find that wearing sneakers with long baggier jeans looks frumpy and doesn’t create the right balance in a look. This pair from Express represents the perfect option because it features a form-fitting ankle-length design, and the light wash is perfect for spring! I wear a size small reg, and they fit true to size with lots of stretch. Additionally, they are currently on major sale, bringing their price point under $60, so you can’t go wrong!

VERONICA BEARD JACKET WITH GRAY HOODED DICKEY:

I styled the light wash jeans above with one of my fave closet staples: my Veronica Beard Jacket! I love the effortless elegance this jacket brings to the look and adding the gray hooded dickey brings the perfect casual vibe. My exact jacket is sold out, so I’m linking this version, also by Veronica Beard, which is very similar and just as fabulous! I wear a size 0 and they fit true to size.

ALWAYS ADD A THIRD LAYER:

Tip No.2 for how to look chic in sneakers is to always add a third layer! This is one of my hard & fast rules for elevating almost any look and it works everytime. Adding a third layer brings dimension and structure to an outfit and this blush bomber jacket from Evereve is a fabulous choice. The soft pink shade screams spring and the bomber style brings just a little edge. I wear an XS in this ideal spring jacket with a great price point.

WEAR A FITTED TEE OR TANK AND TUCK IT IN:

Tip No. 3 for how to look chic in sneakers is to wear a fitted tee or tank and tuck it in! Another option is to wear a bodysuit for the same effect. Styling a sneaker look with a fitted top & jeans ensures a balanced look since your footwear is naturally more bulky when wearing sneakers. I’ve been wearing this fitted ribbed tank on repeat lately and it’s a great option for this look. I wear a size XS and it fits true to size.

BLUE BLAZER:

I can’t end this post without mentioning this stunning blue blazer! Since the one I’m wearing is sold out, I’m linking one in the same color from Express, so the price is on point. It’s the perfect oversized jacket to top off this chic sneaker look and fits true to size. I wear an XS for size reference.
