I don’t want to spoil your morning or anything, but remember when wearing athletic cross-trainers and boot-cut jeans was a thing? Like, something that a lot of us wore? Just thinking about it makes me shudder. Those were dark times, and I try not to remember them.
Things in the world of denim have taken a dramatic turn for the cool, crazy and wild since then, and we’re all better for it. As I’ve mentioned a couple of times lately though (here and here), I’m having a moment for more toned-down pairings lately, and I’m definitely not along. Sportswear and athletic-inspired looks are very on-trend this season, and in the sphere of denim that’s translated to seeing a lot of the cool girls wearing their denim with classic sneakers.
Is this ground-breaking? Of course not, but it is inspiring. I like the idea of giving our feet a rest from teetering heels and elevating wedges to just kick back in a pair of white kicks. The usual go-to is a pair of Converse low tops (All Stars, perhaps), but you can change it up with a cute (even colorful) pair of Superga sneaks too.
How will you pair casual kicks with your denim this season?
