Trend Alert: Slip-On Sneakers

Trend Alert: Slip-On Sneakers

A new day, a new trend alert. I feel like I haven't done a trend alert for you all in a while so I thought today would be the perfect day to do so. This is the season of nonstop shopping and prepping for the holidays. I have seen so many great new trends that are worthy of purchasing thus far this season but this is by far my all time favorite. Slip-on sneakers have been apart of my wardrobe since I was a little girl. Needless to say, I put them away for quite sometime because they started to decline in the fashion world. But now, there is no holding me back. I am going to wear my slip-on sneakers with pride and comfort!

For those who are not familiar with the term "slip-on" they are sneakers or flat shoes that do not have any laces, buckles or straps. You simply slip them onto your feet and go. There are so many different designs for the slip on sneakers nowadays-- they have many different patterns, textures, and even platform heights. The list goes on but for the purpose of this trend alert, I styled 3 of the basic slip-on sneakers you will see often in retails stores today. Of course they differ in appearance but they can be worn relatively the same. So lets jump right into the details of each look.

Look 1: The first look is for those lazy feminine days. The slip-on sneakers are very simple in style and color. They do not have any distinct features or details which gives us a lot of wiggle room for our outfit. I decided to style them with a shift sweater dress. The ribbed detailing and the pockets of the dress gives this look more texture. I love the balance of this outfit. 

Look 2: Next is for the tomboy or more masculine days. I enjoy wearing boyfriend jeans and over-sized sweaters in the fall and winter because they make for an easy look that always seems put together. To jazz up the dull colors of the jeans and sweater, I went for the leopard patterned sneakers. The turtleneck will give you more height. This is an added bonus given that we are not wearing heels. 

Look 3: Last but not least is for those glamorous, nothing to do days. You know those days were you wake up feeling very Audrey Hepburn but truly are just going to work or out on a lunch date. Well this is the look for those days. I played with texture and pattern in this look while still making the outfit very clean. The midi skirt is the jaw dropper as it takes away from the boyish and casual feel of the sneakers. The blouse is very feminine which adds to the glamour factor. 

As easy as it can be to style slip-on sneakers you have to first find the right pair for you. I have seen many great slip-on sneakers at Aldo Shoes, Topshop, The Shoe Hive, H&M, DSW and more. When you are out shopping for your new sneakers, be sure to try them on. You want to be sure they are the perfect fit for you!

Happy Shopping!
