Comfort is back in fashion. Thank the runway, designers, street style stars, or whomever, but sneakers have never been more stylish.
Rock a pair with a printed mini skirt, shorts, cuffed pants, or overalls—your look will be polished with a bit of an edge. We know, it sounds a bit tricky. You may ask, “how can sneakers work well with everything?” InStyle’s Market Editor Ali Pew has all the answers. Pew picked four sneaker silhouettes—the slip-on, the high-top, the lace-up, and the running shoe—and showed us not one, but two ways to work the style into your wardrobe. What’s more, you’ll learn which pairs are office-appropriate (or perhaps more importantly, which are not), how to make trainers as flattering as possible (hint: you’ll want to show some ankle), and the key pieces you’ll need to enhance your look.
