Spring 2014 Trend: How to Wear Sneakers

Sneakers

By Tonie Hanson

How did sneakers become ‘THE’ Spring 2014 trend? From last spring’s hidden wedges to this spring’s Adidas Stan Smiths, the must-have shoes are creating fashion waves. How happy does this make me? Extremely. As we saw on the Chanel and Dior Couture runways, these pumped up kicks are being worn with anything and everything.

The mix of texture, embroidery and feminine silhouettes paired with sneakers exudes a free spirit and youthful attitude. I am embracing the trend not only because I work for a sneaker company, but also because the infusion of sport is a great look.

Now, how does one wear sneakers and take full advantage of sporty fashion this spring?

One of the ‘It’ sneakers this spring, the Adidas Stan Smith, are a clean, chic low-top that I can pair with everything. For example, ripped jeans and a white blazer.

A pleated, flippy skirt is a high-top’s best friend and an easy way to bring a print (like polka dots) into your look.

Go back to your childhood with slip-on sneakers. These are made for shorts and high-low hem dresses.
