Life is active. Whether running errands, walking the dog, chasing after our kids, or heading out to meet friends, we are constantly on the move. We need flexible fashions that make getting dressed easy and are comfortable enough to go all day in style. That’s why we absolutely love that dresses with sneakers is a fashion trend with some staying power.
For my daughter and I, dresses with sneakers are a travel wardrobe essential. Dresses are effortlessly easy, which means we're ready to explore and sneakers mean we can wander around seeing the sights all day without feeling uncomfortable. Plus, cute and stylish for all the travel photos we want!
We love a great dress. Dresses are the ultimate one-and-done closet item. They make getting ready effortless and give us all the “I feel pretty” feels. Naturally a dress looks amazing and totally feminine with a pair of heels, but our heels aren’t the comfort shoes we pretend they are. Don’t get us wrong. We still love our heels, but nothing beats the all-day comfort and ease of a great sneaker.
Not sure how to pair sneakers with a dress? Here are some tips for sporting your sporty kicks with feminine flair this season.
The White Sneaker
White sneakers are trending in fashion right now! This simple but stylish shoe goes with a number of spring and summer looks, including a variety of sneaker and dress combos.
One of our favorite summer combos is a floral print dress, like the Debut Dress from Cabi, with a low profile white sneaker like these Converse or these Clarks Un Maui.
We also love an off the court tennis sneaker like these Superstar shoes from Adidas with an easy shift dress like this one from Nordstrom Rack or this ATC Wink Dress from Cabi.
If you’re looking to try a dress with a sneaker, a white sneaker is a great place to start. You really can’t go wrong with a white sneaker and dress combination.
The Pop of Color Sneaker
Feeling bold? Go for a bold color sneaker, like these brilliant green Cariuma sneakers or these fuchsia Vans, with a Chambray dress like this one from Nordstrom Rack. Chambray is a real neutral back drop that lets the color of your shoes play center stage.
Don’t be afraid to try a fun patterned shoe with a chambray dress either. We love these Floral Print Vans or these Wild Rose Keds.
The Slip On Sneaker
Slip on sneakers are as easy as it comes. Seriously it’s in their name. Slip them on and you’re good to go.
We love taking a simple slip on, like these ones from Dr. Scholl’s or these ones (our personal favorite) from Adidas , or even one with a little sparkle like these from Naturalizer, and sporting them under a maxi dress, like the Stripe Easy Dress from Cabi or this Racerback Maxi from Nordstrom Rack for a fun and casual weekend look.
The Striped Tennis Shoe
We love that tennis inspired kicks have moved off the court and onto the street.
These ones from the Stan Smith Collection at Adidas are made from recycled materials and look great when paired with a bold print dress like this one from Amazon or the Perfect Wrap dress from Cabi.
Want to take this look from day to dinner? Add a leather jacket for a casually cool street style approved evening look!
We’re ready to walk a stylish and totally comfortable mile in these looks this spring and summer!
