Let’s talk white sneakers for a moment. They have been on trend for a while now and I don’t foresee them going anywhere anytime soon! From no show socks to low rise socks there isn’t any way you can’t wear these beauties! Most designers have made their own versions of this wardrobe staple, but this fashion trend doesn’t have to break the bank! My two favorite pairs @colehaan and @katespadeny were scooped up from Nordstrom Rack for under $100! From Converse to Gucci there are so many different styles that match the white sneaker trend.
I like to throw my sneakers with jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts… and even under gowns! See our YouTube hack on how to keep your white sneakers clean here.
When I reflect on pictures in my camera roll, I see my white sneakers appear in so many photos from school parent meetings to strolls with my family on vacay. If you don’t own a pair or need a new pair, check out some of my tops picks!
I love dressing for fall but it can be frustrating. It’s an exciting time of the year when I’ve had enough of the scorching sun and humidity and I’m ready for a much-needed cool and crisp breeze! It’s a torment though, I always find that its way too long of a moment when deciding between grabbing a cardigan or not, and then ultimately end up carrying it and not wearing it half the time. Same goes for leather jackets, and they are bulky to carry! I can’t count the times I’ve worn open toed sandals when it was too warm out and ended up feeling embarrassed on my walks home when the temperature suddenly dropped. I have to say, I am a city girl so a lot of my stress and wardrobe is dictated by the weather and how strenuous my commute will be that day. I remember I would wear layers during the cold winters of New York all to pass out from the heat inside the packed and heated subway cars during rush hour! What a disaster that was.
After some failed attempts, I’ve figured it all out! For days when you’re not certain about the finicky weather, wear pieces, which work in both scenarios. For instance, instead of wearing boots because that’s a real commitment, wear booties and swap the jeans for a pair of quality tights and pair it with a tweed or wool skirt and flannel shirt. Another option is to pair fall fashion such as plaid with summer styles. So for warmer days, instead of a plaid shirt and jeans, wear a plaid shift dress and pair it with a pair of low tops for a relaxed and comfortable look.
Fall is about tasteful experiments. Try to bring character to each piece you wear, give it a different definition each time. It’s easy to stand out in the wrong outfit but hopefully these tips were helpful to avoid the embarrassments and discomfort of fall fashion disasters.
