Wondering on where to start pairing your vans with your look?
Discover how YOU can ROCK them.
Calling all comfort creatures, a new mood of simplicity is sweeping the street-style scene and bringing sneakers back into our everyday uniforms.
Read my simple style tips below that promise to keep you looking effortlessly stylish, wherever you’re going! I also add some outfit ideas that might help.
Lets get started..
- 1.Add a pop Colour-
Add a Splash of colour, let your shoes do the talking.
Adding a pop of color can add a lot of life to a look, but the question I get most as a stylist is WHEN to add that pop. My response is “when you are in a fun and lively mood”. My answer is usually never based on an outfit, but rather if the wearer is ready to stand out. That is exactly what a pop of color does – it’s a way of adding a real eye-catching piece to your look that will draw attention. That said, there are definitely outfits that work better with an added pop than others.
The simplest and no-fail way to add a pop of color is to start with a monochromatic outfit (all one color or a black and white). An all black ensemble is probably the easiest to work with, but any neutral outfit will look awesome when paired with most colors.
If you’re colour shy, start with a neutral shade to prepare your shoes confidence! Try; navy, beige, white or grey.
2.HI vs LO Find out what shoe style best suits your look.
High tops are great looking when worn with skinny jeans or leggings (jeggings would work too), Pair shorts with high tops for a summer look.
Roll the bottoms of jeans to create a bit of volume to offset the sneakers
Wearing your low tops with shorts is fairly straight forward if you: -Opt for shoe liners instead of socks (there is nothing more unattractive than low shoes and shorts paired with socks). -Wear light Vans with dark shorts, or dark Vans with light shorts. ... -Choose a tee that links to the colour of your Vans
3.Don’t forget the accessories
Add accessories to your OOTD to take your shoe STYLE UP gear
Your shoes are given an EXTRA edge when you wear them with a few bracelets, a blazer or a structured bag.
The accessories really help complete the look – and nobody will mistake you for heading down the gym!
Add any accessory piece you want from chic and timeless, to fun and edgy – and ROCK these with your new comfy shoes
