The versatility of a chic linen suit and the many styling options it offers make it a wise investment. Wear the entire linen outfit together, including the blazer, pants, and vest, or mix and match to create endless outfit combinations. This example shows how a three-piece suit paired with a pair of “hyped” sneakers, such as this New Balance pair, can give a more relaxed look to a otherwise buttoned-up outfit.

This outfit is a great example of a ladylike look: the tweed jacket with the lace skirt. The look is transformed into something more relaxed by adding a pair athletic-looking shoes. This unexpected combination strikes the perfect balance. The sneakers embody the balance. They are a part of a collaboration by New Balance and Miu Miu.

This outfit is a perfect example of spring staples, but with a stylish twist. The Breton stripe shirt paired with the dark wash denim mid-skirt is chic. The white sneakers give the look a French-girl vibe. These elements work together to create a timeless and fashionable look.

This outfit formula is always a winner. The perfect outfit base is a pair of classic light-washed blue jeans, a white tank, a leather jacket and white sneakers. Accessories like handbags and sunglasses can easily be added to this look.

Chic Capris

Capri pants, whether you love them or loathe them, are back in style. Em Rata is the face of this controversial trend, wearing a vintage Dior outfit. She pairs the look with Loewe “Ballet Runners”, which combine the design of a 1970s-style track shoe with the construction of a ballerina pump. The feminine appeal of this vintage-inspired shoe perfectly compliments the retro look of the capris.

The transition from spring to summer is best done with a classic white shirtdress. This is the perfect dress for hot days when you need to look cool but still stylish. The Nike Air Force One is a great choice for those who want to combine fashion with function.

This outfit is the perfect balance of sweetness and casualness. Spring is screamed by the denim dress with puff sleeves and eyelet details. It’s paired up with a wicker handbag. The addition of chunky shoes and tube socks adds a sporty twist to the ultra-girly dress. This combination dresses down the dress while still keeping it on-trend.

Expect the Unexpected

The cable-knit set paired with the matching skirt is a classic example of prep. Although one would expect to see classic white tennis sneakers, like Supergas or Keds with the outfit, we love the unconventional choice. Charlotte Groeneveld chose Nike Air More Uptempo sneakers. This footwear choice transforms a traditional “lady-who-lunches” look into a street style one.

The spring is full of florals in flowing styles, which are usually seen on dresses and skirts. Consider a pair printed pants made from a lightweight fabric such as silk or cotton if flowers are not your thing. The cheetah pattern is a less sweet, but still bold alternative to floral prints. Pairing animal prints with white sneakers is a great way to make them less intimidating. The casual and simple vibe of the sneakers helps to tone down the boldness and make cheetah prints pants more wearable.

If you like florals, go for it! Dress down a floral midi-dress with sneakers that are girl-approved. Adidas Sambas would be the best choice in this situation. Fashion icons such as Hailey Bieber Kendall Jenner and Bell Hadid have endorsed these shoes, making them the perfect complement to floral moments.

Slip into Spring

Slip dresses and white sneakers are a great combination for spring. They’re easy, comfortable, cool, and stylish. The oversized hoodie will give the dress a relaxed look. It adds a layer of comfort and complements the sportiness of the sneakers.

In The Trenches

A trench coat is the epitome of spring. A sporty sneaker is paired with an elegant ensemble. A classic trench with cropped pants might normally be paired with a ballet shoe or loafer. However, adding chunky sneakers gives the look a more casual, effortless feel. The outfit looks more casual and relaxed with this twist.
