All the stylish women around the world search for inspiration on how to rock these shoes in the most stylish and most feminine ways. And, a style blogger caught our eyes in nailing this fashion runner trend. Let’s have a look.

She has an eye for minimalism, but always with an edge such as rocking fashion runners in any attire.

The good news is that sneakers are comfortable. The bad news is, if you’re used to wearing heels, boots or flats, incorporating fashion runners into your non-workout wardrobe can be daunting. So, if it’s your first time to rock this trend, start easy by teaming your fashion runners with casual street wear such as denim jeans, black skinny pants, overalls, rompers, graphic tees, tank tops, and a plain shirt. For example, a clean pair of sneakers can be paired with a good-fitting shirt. When wearing sneakers, you may cuff your pants and show your ankle bones to make sure your fashion runners are seen. Also, don’t wear socks, or at least don’t let them show. By doing this, you let your fashion runners make a statement on their own. These kinds of outfits are for those days that you don’t have much time to really think of your get up. These are easy and effortless ways to rock your usual favorite kicks.
Next, the key to nailing this trend is to look like you’re actually doing it on purpose – not like you just threw on your comfy runners to walk to the office. In order to do so, you’ll need some classic clothes and confidence. You may opt for a solid color of your classic clothes. A solid color or maybe just some classic stripes, or a pair of slides with a classic print like leopard makes your outfit more neutral that incorporating fashion runners would be easier. If your look is more formal, better opt for white fashion runners or sneakers so the shoes don’t stand out. If you’re planning to wear sneakers at the office, try keeping your outfit professional and sleek and pair them with white tennis shoes for a more feminine look. Even fancy dresses can work paired with tennis shoes. Though silk dresses may seem too formal to work with sneakers, but the simple styling and a quirky bag can make the look work. So, play with accessories. Accessorize your outfit with sunglasses and bags that match your shoes. Bigger accessories will create more volume to your outfit and therefore, a more stylish silhouette.
If you really want to make a statement, then nail your fashion style by going “flouro” with your footwear – bright and neon colored sneakers or kicks. This will add a pop of color to your otherwise simple outfit. Team it with neutrals such as white, black, brown, khaki, and gray and it makes its own statement. You may also opt for eye-catching prints and designs on your fashion runners if you like to splash some fun to your style. When wearing these styles of fashion runners, keep the rest of your outfit basic and simple so it wouldn’t look overdone. But if you like to break the rules every now and then, wear it with a colorful print outfits but don’t overdo it.
Now, you can be completely comfortable in sneakers and still feel like you are on trend. Just took a spin on the usual “sporty” look by wearing an elegant and classic style outfits with your fashion runners. True, comfort never looked better!
