I want to wear sneakers, but I’m not sure how. Help.

Oh, sneakers are the casual girl’s best friend. You know why? Because there are so many styles and so many ways to incorporate them in your outfits…and look fun, stylish and chic. Come fall, I will be living in my sneakers and booties. I own several styles and colors of sneakers so I can mix and match outfits throughout the week.

My favorites are my Superga Platform sneakers. The height of the sole elongates your legs and gives you a little, well, height. I have a white pair and I wear them with everything from jeans to cropped trousers, skirts and casual dresses.

I also love my Adidas Original Campus sneakers in red. The red offers a pop of color for my casual outfit — typically jeans and a graphic tee or a cotton blouse.

I have a few pairs of fun colored running shoes that add some panache to my sweats.

So how to wear them? Here are some looks I adore:

A trench or winter coat thrown over a pair of jeans, sneakers and a playful graphic top, like you see here:


Here’s another way to style them: sleek pants or leggings with an oversized shirt and sweater. So perfect for fall:


Or, how about with jeans and a blazer?! Yes!

While Nike, Adidas, Converse and New Balance have been the mainstays for years, there are some brands from back in the day that are making comebacks. Here are my favorites among all of them:





New Balance


Comme des Garcons for Converse
