We talked a lot about sneakers lately. For a good reason, as they are comfy, versatile and more trendy than ever. Yet, sometimes they are reproached for looking ‘immature’, childish and too sporty for an everyday style. With this 7 easy hints you can avoid being pilloried for that.
1. Choose a narrow fit
Chunky models can make your feet look unaesthetic and bulky. Small shoes are flattering and more elegant.
2. Favor the classics
3. Opt for decent colors
Multicolored sneakers are just for special occasions. For normal days neutral tones work better.
4. Avoid wild patterns
Funny comic patters are for kids. A less playful option are cool graphic prints. Otherwise look at Nr. 7!
5. Go for gold
…or some other kind of glance. Metallic sneakers are extraordinary and eye-catching and take away their gym look.
6. Take care of your sneakers
Worn out, shabby shoes are great for festivals but not for adult woman street styles. Besides, if you take good care by cleaning and impregnating them, your sneakers will thank you with surviving for a long time.
7. Team your sneakers with ‘adult’ clothes
They upgrade the casual style of the footwear.
P.S.: Don’t take this list to serious – despite Nr. 4 I will never give away my Mickey Mouse Vans ;)
