I will be the first to admit that being stylish and functional can be a tough as mama. Especially when you stay home full-time and are chasing after babies all day!
There have been weeks of my life since becoming a mom that I could be found in nothing but pajama bottoms or yoga pants, no matter when you saw me!
As my babes have gotten older though, I’ve definitely made it a priority to make myself a bit more presentable on a regular basis. And it makes me feel better!
The tough part is choosing styles that are flattering, fit well, make me happy and fit my busy, bustling lifestyle.
That is why one of my favorite go-to choices is a flirty, feminine piece paired with a just a touch of comfy function, like this sneaker and dress combo!
Today I have guest author Lara, from London, sharing her tips for rocking the dress and sneaker look like a pro! Lara is a huge fan of “comfortable fashion,” so when she saw the sneaker trend taking off, she began experimenting with her wardrobe, matching her trainer collection with everything she owned. She’ll have you feeling cute and comfy in no time, ladies!
Season after season, designers continue to give athletic shoes a fashionable upgrade, making them one of the top footwear trends of the season and beyond. Although our hearts will always stay true to the beautiful heels we’ve added to our collection over the years, we’re happy to offer our feet a break from all the pain and treat them to a nice, comfy pair of sneakers.
When trying to style your wardrobe according to your sneakers, don’t be afraid to experiment outside of the typical athleisure look. With industry experts leaning towards classic lace ups to more directional reworks, you’ve got plenty of options among your summer clothes to create chic outfits. And with summer being the best season for dresses, it’s time that you started finding ways to wear your trainers with your all your frocks. From maxis to minis, fashion sites often showcase a range of dresses for different occasions, most of which can also be worn with sneakers, surprisingly enough.
So, don’t reach for your yoga pants if you feel like wearing a pair of tennis shoes. Instead, try pairing your favorite kicks with:
A Silk Slip with a White Tee
This ‘90s inspired slip and t-shirt duo is so easy to wear and can be dressed up with heels or boots, or in this case, dressed down with casual sneakers. White trainers will look great no matter what color slip you’re wearing, with black being another option. But if you’ve got a nude cami dress on, make sure you stick with white sneakers.
A Flirty Silhouette
Often times women are looking to draw back the femininity of their dresses to make them more appropriate for daytime wear, though if want to keep the girl factor in your dress, low tops or slip ons will give you a more down-to-earth
A Pinafore Dress
For anyone that loves layering, a pinafore dress can be worn with any tank, t-shirt or crop top you feel like that day. And to finish off the look: a sleek pair of kicks.
