Sneak-y

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Take everything you know about that hip, cool girl style and give it an even cooler edge with this season's comfy trend: sneakers. These are a classic, of course, but it has been, now more than ever, seen on the streets. Why does it work so well? Is it the fact that the elegance and edge of your dress compliments the worn out and comfortable look of the sneakers? Whatever it is, it just works. And it gets better: the wedged sneaker, may I add, the hidden wedge which gives the modern day women a sleek, sophisticated, yet not to casual look, just perfect kind of like the Powerpuff Girls (did that even make sense?) . These babies have been around for a while and if you haven't seen a pair of the Isabel Marant Willows - I just can't help ya there pal. But I am in love this and have been inspired to take my Jack Purcells out of the closet and even purchase a new pair of sneaks soon! Overall: Risk it and switch your preppy flats and heels for a sneaker alternative. 

Here's my take on the trend. (Mostly channeling Miss Man Repeller herself)



1. Jeffrey Campbell Venice High wedged sneaker
2. Christopher Kane for J Brand denim jacket
3. Cotton On Kaisy Contrast dress
4. Converse All Stars high top sneakers
5. TopShop Aztex Arrow Foil vest
6. Modcloth All Hands on Set-list bag
7. Just Acces cuff
