When you have a pair of sneakers you really love, there is little that will make you want to wear any other shoe. Nothing can beat the comfort of a well-worn in pair of sneakers, and when they also have the stylish designer edge that makes you feel fantastic whenever you slip them on, you're certain to want to get as much mileage as you can out of them.
With fall about to begin, we are entering a time of year when sneakers are the perfect footwear - suitable for those long, crunchy walks out in the falling leaves, and for pairing with the new season's warmer, cozier clothing. Here are three ideas for outfits that can incorporate your favorite sneakers this fall:
Sneakers With a Leather Skirt
Leather (or faux leather) is often a fun texture to wear in the fall, and leather jackets and coats are far from the only way it'll be seen in fall 2019. A leather skirt can look great with all kinds of different footwear, but for a more unexpected look, try pairing it with black hosiery or tights with a lace detail, and a pair of chunky designer sneakers. Sneakers with a slight heel are popular this year, and you can certainly get a good look by choosing these kinds of eye-catching sneaker designs with modern, statement details, and matching them with a plain but textured skirt.
Another way you can sport your sneakers with a skirt as an alternative to the usual sneakers-and-jeans combo is to wear them with one of this season's midi skirts. Midis are going to be around in all different cuts and fabrics, but with sneakers, you can't go wrong with a figure hugging jersey midi in a block color or a casual, cozy wool midi. Just about all styles of sneakers can pair well here, including hi-tops and even running style shoes. For inspiration, check out the latest collection of Gucci sneakers. This designer is a popular choice for high end luxury styles, and this translates over even into their more casual lines, like their sneakers, which you can find at excellent online retailer SSENSE. SSENSE also has all of the latest sneakers from all of the other top names in high fashion, including Givenchy, and Balenciaga.
The athleisure trend isn't going anywhere this fall, and so another fun way to wear your sneakers this season is as part of a funky, bold ensemble with some leggings in a sporty design. The idea here is to go for performance sports styles rather than the kind of snugly leggings you might put under a sweater dress (though you can certainly wear your sneakers with those too, as a bonus idea!). This makes for a practical look that is on-trend for streetwear but also ideal for the gym.
These are just three ideas for styling your casual outfits around your favorite sneakers this coming fall!
