Get The Casual Chic Look | How To Pair Dresses And Skirts With Sneakers And Not Feel Old Fashioned

Slipping on a pair of sneakers with a dress doesn’t have to mean compromising style for comfort.

A dress with sneakers is the epitome of casual-chic. It’s making an effort without trying too hard and dressing up without sacrificing comfort. 

But if you’re new to the pairing, it can feel intimidating.

Here are a few chic-yet-accessible looks to try out with sneakers.

Opt For Coordinating Separates

Try tucking a fitted knit top into a high-waisted skirt. The variation in texture adds dimension to your look, while the tucked-in top helps define your waist. Vibrant colors and patterns paired with white sneakers can also help give your outfit that fresh feeling—bright, playful, and not at all frumpy. Big earrings complete this easy-yet-classy look.

Try a Tonal Look

When in doubt, go for a tonal look—an outfit composed of pieces in the same color or similar colors. A tonal look is alwaysfashionable, and it’s incredibly easy to put together.

Keep It Short And Simple

If you’re used to wearing your dresses and skirts with heels and feelfazed by the switch to sneakers, there’s an easy solution: Pair your sneakers with pieces that have shorter hemlines—above the knee or higher. Shorter dresses tend to look more casual (especially if they have a T-shirt silhouette), which will make your sneakers feel right at home in the outfit. Complete the look with a better-than-denim jacket, your favorite hoops, and sunglasses.

Wearing a dress with sneakers will give you that enviable cool-girl vibe. Whether you’re headed to have brunch with friends or are jetting out of the house to run errands, dresses with sneakers are the outfit formula you should always have on rotation.
