Last week on the blog I shared how to style sneakers with a regular outfit. Today, let’s talk about how to style sneakers with dresses (or skirts). It’s one of my favorite looks, and I even did it for fashion week in NYC last week – you can see the look on my instagram here!

I put together this everyday look with a simple jersey shift dress and these super cute embroidered sneakers. You could swap the shift dress with a casual fit and flare dress, or a midi or even maxi dress.

If your dress is a solid color, try a pair of fun sneakers with embroidery, glitter, or other designs. If your dress is floral or striped or patterned at all, try a solid color sneaker. The tips I shared last week (seen here) absolutely apply here too!

I hear all the time, “I wish I could pull off that look!” But the only person stopping you from pulling it off is you. Just try it!
