Q&A: Creative Outfits with Casual Sneakers

Q: I was wondering how do I wear sneakers in a more feminine way? I’m 16 and I have been flats and sandals for the last year or so, but I do miss the sneakers. But I’ve found out that they clash with my more girly blouses.

A: Sneakers are inherently casual, and they’re also kind of tomboyish.  To help combat the tomboyish feel of sneakers, choose sneakers that are inherently more feminine, either in color or detailing.  Here’s three ways to wear your sneakers for a more feminine look:

Tip 1: Go Daytime Glamorous with a Dress

Proudly wear a casual dress with your sneakers, and accessorize your outfit with bold jewelry and an elegant handbag.  Be bold!  Don’t you love the gorgeous black and white zebra print?

Tip 2: Balance Masculine and Feminine

You can embrace the tomboyish feel of the sneakers by balancing a feminine piece of clothing with a masculine one.  Here, the feminine airy yellow tank top is counterbalanced by a masculine military-inspired blazer.  Added bonus? Grey (instead of blue) jeans.

Tip 3: Embrace the Casual

Sneakers are casual, so go with the flow and create a casual outfit around them. Wear shorts instead of pants, and slip on a breezy chic feminine top.
