SUMMER DRESS WITH SNEAKERS•
Posted on October 16 2020
Although this combination might not sound like it could work, best believe it does! Pairing a flowy midi summer dress with a pair of sneakers creates the perfect casual summer outfit. It’s one of the coolest trends around right now!
Here are some tips to match your favorite summer dress with your favorite trainers:
1. Length Doesn’t Matter
The great thing about pairing a dress with sneakers is that the length doesn’t matter. Sneakers can be worn with a mini dress, midi dress and even a maxi dress. It’s completely up to you. If you’re looking for a more cool and casual look – combine your sneakers with a mini or maxi dress. If you’re wanting a more balanced look, then a midi dress with a pair of sneakers will do just that.
2. Low Tops are the Most Versatile
White low top sneakers work with anything and are sure to compliment your summer dress.
3. Your Other Accessories Can Be Formal
Wear feminine accessories to compliment your sneakers. Gold pops! Add a gold chain belt around your waist with a pair of cat eye sunglasses and even a watch.
Why not try a simple outfit formula to get you started: try a plain white short dress with your low top sneakers. Add in a hairband that matches the colour of your shoulder bag with some of your favorite bracelets.
3 COLOURS TO WORK INTO YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE
A great way to make your summer outfit look more fashion forward is to add a pop of colour. We’ve gathered 3 colours to elevate your summer wardrobe. These colours are easily matched with other colours and will flatter your neutral pieces.
Yellow is the colour of happiness and sunshine. What better colour to wear in summer! Pair yellow with pale or baby blue, pastel pink or lilac or even white to keep it cool and simple. Avoid pairing yellow with black as the contrast between the two creates a more formal and stern look taking away that summer feel.
Pair your favourite lilac pieces with blues, whites, creams and pastel pink. You can even pair it with black or dark denim as the colours balance one another keeping your outfit feeling light and summery.
This bright colour screams summer! Pair this shade of pink with red for an ultimate fashion girl look. You can also pair it with blues like denim to create a contrast.
A research by retail technology company Edited states “Denim is not only alive, but it’s actually making a comeback.” The category has seen a boost in the last 18 months.
Ripped or not, mom jeans are in. They’re high waisted and can be worn with a complimentary black belt, tucked in shirt or bra top. Sneakers, heals or sandals will offer this look the appropriate style for the suited occasion creating either a casual or slightly more formal look. The mom jean compliments your waist and booty this season, no matter your shape and/ size. A white top with white low tops keeps this look light and airy while walking the streets on a summer's day, but yet again denim goes with every colour!
