Converse + Jeans = Understated Spring Uniform

Thursday, April 10, 2014




There are a few fashion pairings that you can always count on looking great, like pants and silk blouses, grey tees and sequin skirts, scarves with everything and Converse worn with jeans, especially when you pair them with a loose top, blouse or a shirt. That understated combo will never ever fail you.

It’s been one of the busiest 4 days in a while on my end, so this has been my uniform of choice. Funnily enough, I am not alone, girls all around the city wear it too. Psst: don’t forget to roll up those pants and show off those pretty ankles of yours :)

Do you wear Converse? My worn out navy blues would need an ungrade and I am thinking about swapping them for whites. What’s your colour of choice when it comes to Converse? xo

P.S: Also, skirts and sneakers, plus a few other sassy trends that you might also like.
P.P.S: Fancy a pretty dress?  Check out our GIVEAWAY this week!

I had a pair years ago but I think I need to get them this spring because they look great with every single outfit you posted above.

Oh Diana, my trusty mind reader!

I was thinking about getting a low white pair! I love the free ankle look but I am always wondering if they wear socks or not. I just can´t think of wearing them without socks at all!

On another note we have the weirdest weather right now. It just poured like crazy five minutes ago and now the sun is shining through my office window. It´s crazy :)

Have a lovely day!

Oh yeah! There's no better combination. I have a pair of red ones that I love. But I'm thinking about swapping them for whites too (they go with everything!).

YES! hubby is a huge converse fan and would love me to wear them (he wants us to match haha)

I love jeans and converse! Such a classic. I wore a pair of white converse in high school all the time and I would totally do it again. Maybe this is the summer! :) xo, Katie

Jillian:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally, Camila. The whites go with everything!

Diana Mieczan said...

Awesome, Marieken and me too: grey jeans, striped navy-white top and navy converse:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Awww...adorable, Tiffany:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Katie, you should totally get a pair!

Diana Mieczan said...

Pamela, the charcoal pair looks awesome!

Diana Mieczan said...

Martie, you should try those super short socks. They only go up till the end of the shoe so this way it will look like you don't wear socks but you actually do - for your comfort

Diana Trotter said...

I love converse and jeans together! But every time I go to try on converse, i just think my feet look weird or too big in them!

Sarah said...

This is exactly what I am wearing right now! and I got 3 compliments today :)

Steph said...

I had them when I was a kid and I've been looking for some I like. Funny enough, I tried on white ones today and then second guessed myself because London can be a dirty place to walk around and I'm pretty sure I'd destroy them way too quickly. I need a new color. Maybe blue...

Diana Mieczan said...

Yay, Sarah:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Steph, they are super easy to wash (I just put them in the washing machine)! You should totally get a pair and blue sounds great.

Merry Meri said...

Diana Mieczan said...

Yay, Meri:) xoxo
