Kris wearing the Romika 20702
Ah, the beloved sneaker! It’s comfy, reliable and now maybe even the most fashionable shoe out there. Gone are the days where sneakers are for sport, or your most relaxed outfit. Lucky for us, sneakers today come in every colour and style under the sun.
(Also acceptable: trainers, joggers, runners!)
But with a whole lot of sneaker styles going on, it can be tough to figure out what to wear with them! It’s not as simple as black with black and white with white. There’s also a misconception that sneakers are a winter shoe, and should be fully replaced by heels during the warmer months! We're here to tell you: that’s simply not true.
In this blog, we’ll break it down for you - and prove the humble sneaker really is the most versatile and bad-ass shoe in the game… all year round.
Let’s start with an easy one. If you’re looking to style a white sneaker in summer, you’re in luck! It looks awesome paired with practically anything.
For a relaxed summer look, we love wearing our white sneakers with a pair of light washed blue denim jeans and a loose white t-shirt. Going out? Pair it with a pair of cool sunglasses and a fancy handbag. You simply can’t go wrong with this one.
But it doesn’t stop there. White sneakers also make for a brilliant component to another summer wardrobe essential: a summer dress. It’s so awesome to see how widely worn sneakers are with dresses nowadays. Our hearts (and feet) are so happy.
For an effortless summer look, perfect for boozy lunches or Sunday brunches, pair your white sneakers with a bright summer dress. For an extra touch, add a funky wide brimmed straw hat!
Styling patterned sneakers isn’t as easy as the classic white - but it still doesn’t have to be hard.
When you’re styling a pair of patterned sneakers, you want to make your shoes the statement piece of your outfit. Whatever you decide to wear should make those shoes pop! A great rule to swear by is - the more busy the shoe, the more plain the clothes. If you’re wearing a patterned shoe, pair it with a neutral and un-patterned outfit.
For a beautiful summer look, pair your printed kicks with a white, cream or grey shift dress or skirt and blouse. Let your shoes (and your legs!) do the talking.
For a long time, people assumed if you were wearing a sneaker, you’d have to pair it with active-wear. Because everytime you wear a sports-shoe you’re actually going to workout, right? ;)
Although that’s not the case anymore, we have to admit, pairing some killer active-wear with your sports shoes is undeniably one of the greatest summer looks ever. Perfect for the everyday grind.
If your sport shoes are patterned, and a bit more fun, why not spice up your active-wear? Going for a brightly patterned pair of leggings that matches your sports bra is a great start! Then just throw on a bright tank top and you’re ready to go - to the gym, or just down to the shops on a sunny day.

Alternatively, if you prefer a more simple sports shoe, simply replace the patterned leggings with a monotone coloured pair that compliments the colours of your sneakers.

It can be difficult to find something to wear with striped sneakers. You don’t want to pair it with anything that clashes, and depending on the colour of the stripes, this can happen way too easily.
Our best tip with striped shoes is to pair it with an outfit that features one or more of the colours of the shoe. This helps blend the outfit as a whole and gives those striped bad boys the justice and style they deserve!
For example, if your shoes have dark blue and white stripes, wear them with a complimenting pair of dark blue jaded jeans and a loose white summer blouse.
So there you have it - 6 ways to style your pairs of sneakers in the upcoming summer. The take home message: sneakers are awesome and can be worn with ANYTHING if you style them correctly!
