4 CHIC AND CASUAL WAYS TO WEAR SNEAKERS + Meet My New Lover!

Over 40 fashion blogger from Dallas showcasing how to style sneakers in 4 chic looks.

Oh my gosh, I am in love….with my new puppy!  She is the sweetest little thing and has already brought so much joy to my life!  She is now 16 weeks old and her little sweet yet feisty personality just makes me smile. Not to mention she wants to be with me all the time, lol.  I let her lay on top of my desk while I work and even sit on my vanity while I do my makeup.  She just learned to walk on her leash and is pretty much potty trained, thank goodness.  She is a full-bread Shihtzu and I just adore her reddish brown coloring!  Her name is Dolce, I know, no surprise, lol!  It’s the first time in my life I have ever lived alone so needless to say she was a much-needed companion!

Since I’ve gotten her I wear sneakers a ton running around after her, so I thought it would be fun to feature some of the casual outfits I’ve been wearing lately!

If you’re wondering how to style sneakers and still look chic, keep scrolling for a few of my favorite pairs of sneakers and 4 fabulous ways to wear them!

SHOP LOOK 1:

METALLIC SNEAKERS:

First things first, let’s talk about the sneakers I’ve been wearing so much lately! These gorgeous shoes are the Tropez 2.1 model and let me tell you, they are SO comfortable! Metallics are a huge trend for 2024 and this is a really easy way to work them into your spring wardrobe.

SIMILAR FOR LESS:

If the gold sneakers above are a bit too much of an investment, I’m linking this gorgeous pair from Sam Edelman as an alternative. They have a flat sole so they’re more of a casual street sneaker and they have a price point under $100 so they’re very affordable. If you plan to use them as an athletic sneaker I would opt for the style above but otherwise, these are a great alternative option.

MANGO BOMBER JACKET UNDER $100:

I love this tried & true bomber bomber jacket with an updated cropped hemline from Mango. If you’ve followed me for a while then you know how much I love a cropped jacket and this one looks far more expensive than it really is. The sage green color is perfect for spring and the material has a bit of stretch for maximum comfort. I wear an XS in this chic bomber jacket that’s currently on sale for under $80!

 

PS.  There are limited sizes available directly from Mango so if they’re low in your size, click here for more stock!

SHOP LOOK 2:

BEIGE HAT:

Look No.2 in this guide for how to style sneakers features one of my favorite casual accessories: a cool hat in a neutral shade. There are so many options out there, but I love this one from Evereve thanks to the neutral palate and affordable price. This hat is a one-size-fits-all but has an adjustable velcro at the back for those of us with a smaller diameter head.

SHOP NOW

OVER-SIZED BOMBER JACKET:

This oversized jacket from BLANKNYC is another fabulous option when styling sneakers. Bomber jackets are so versatile and can easily be dressed up or down, which is why they’re a closet staple for me. This one features a ruched design that adds a ton of visual interest to my look and I love the light green shade for spring. I wear an XS and it fits true to size.

BLUSH COLORED BOMBER JACKET:

Look No.3 in my guide for how to style sneakers features the same jeans and shoes from look 2, but styled with a gorgeous blush bomber jacket from Evereve. This is another shade that just screams spring to me and it has a decent price point as well. I love how the cropped style and more fitted look completely change the vibe of this look! I wear an XS and it fits true to size.

SHOP LOOK 4:

EXPRESS BLACK HAT:

Here is another one of my favorite hats to wear with a causal sneaker look from Express. It has a cool faux leather brim which elevates this way beyond your basic ballcap. It also has an amazing price point under $40 and an adjustable fit for maximum comfort.

SHOP NOW

BLACK BOMBER JACKET:

Look No.4 in my guide for how to style sneakers ends with this luxe quilted bomber jacket from Revolve. I love the stand-up collar for a little extra edge and the quilting makes it look far more expensive than it really is. It’s also on sale right now for almost $100 off, making it an ever BETTER value! I wear an XS in this key casual hero piece.
