Nothing makes an all-black ensemble pop like fresh white sneakers. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of an all-white look, then add some flair to your style with a pair of animal print sneakers like Jane Aldridge did. A white dress can also be a great backdrop to let your statement accessories shine, especially if you’re wearing a colorful pair of sneakers and a brightly colored handbag. Chiara Ferragni simply wear her metallic silver silk dress, a trendy fashion staple, with her gray pair of sneakers making her outfit look more cohesive and sleek.

Leather screams edgy, so sneakers are great addition to balance its tough look. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, you may think of wearing your sneakers with a pair of leather trousers, casual top, and a wool coat that will pull your look together. For a more chic look, simply go for a leather crop top to pair with your sexy shorts and sneakers. Remember, black pair of sneakers always looks edgy and masculine while a white canvas style appears to be more ladylike and elegant.

Slouchy pants, oversized coats, or even bulky layers can look sleeker when worn with a chic pair of canvas sneakers. Though ballet flats and pumps can sometimes work, it may be a bit awkward wearing these dressy shoes with a not-so-feminine outfit for where the sneakers will work. Like Masha Sedgewick, go for a sporty look yet chic with a white pair of sneakers, teamed with a pair of slouchy jumpsuit perfect for morning walks and strolling at the park.
