Skirts & Sneakers?

Thursday, August 8, 2013




Do you wear sneakers on a daily basis? Would you wear them with a skirt? About two years ago I got into a habit of carrying a pair of plain Nike sneakers or my trusty navy blue Converse in my bag so I can put them on after a meeting or when I need to walk an extra few blocks than usual. They are much comfier than flats and surprisingly look really cute with feminine above-the-knee silky skirts and loose tees.

What do you think? Thumbs up or down? xo

P.S: People and their shoes:)

I don't normally like the combo of sneakers with skirts. Although, sometimes (depending on the outfit) Chucks can work.

I do the same since I work in heels. I pack a pair of Nike's with me each day to change after work

I would normally say no to sneakers with skirts or dresses, but the girls in pics 5, 9, & 10 may have convinced me otherwise. :) Jogging sneaks are still a no go for me.

as someone who travels a lot and loves to wear skirts and dresses while site seeing, skirts and sneakers have saved my feet so many times. Love the look. I love a sleeker shoe, though.

I walk a lot so comfy shoes are a must. It is a look I've wanted to do in summer but haven't quite mastered it without feeling like a school girl! I still need to find the right colour sneakers for my legs and whatever dress I'm wearing for next summer.

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally with you on that, tiffany:)
