Lately, I have been obsessed with wearing sneakers and I attribute that to my growing desire to prioritize comfort. I would even say that the fashion world in its entirety is growing more practical and cozy these days thanks to the likes of spending more time at home and less time out. Whatever the case may be, I have been adding more trainers to my ever growing collection. To celebrate my recent obsession, I thought I would share 5 different casual chic outfits you can copy and wear with your own collection of sneakers.
Baggy Layers with Bold Sneakers
I recently snagged these bright citrus colored beauties and knew they’d be the perfect focal point of a casual chic outfit. I kept thing relaxed by opting for a loose, menswear inspired blazer and some equally baggy jeans that I cuffed at the hem. (One of my quick style tricks to show off a great pair of shoes is rolling up my jeans.) This is a really simple outfit that looks incredibly stylish thanks to the bold kicks and matching scarf. I finished off the look by adding a denim bucket hat.
Touch of Leather
This next outfit looks like it is borrowed right from the Matrix thanks to one of my favorite outerwear pieces this winter. I layered a faux leather blazer over a black turtleneck and styled it with distressed, baggy denim. To keep the cool, streetwear vibes going, my shoes are these retro baby blue Nike’s. Unlike the first outfit, I kept the jeans uncuffed because I really liked how they fell perfectly over the sneakers.
Matching Oversized Sweats
If you happen to be working from home all winter, this outfit is definitely a must. First of all, I am in love with a slouchy, cozy sweatsuit that was made to snuggle in. To keep it from looking too “lazy”, opt for a wool jacket in a camel color. You can then ramp up the off duty vibes with some ribbed knit socks and chunky sneakers.
This outfit might be the comfiest of them all! Although, I do not often shoot looks that incorporate leggings, I thought this was a more stylish take on the basic mainly thanks to the beige sneakers and off beat layering! I styled them with some cozy socks and an oversized hoodie for some added color. Skip the scarf and tie a sweater over your shoulders.
Lastly, you cannot talk about casual chic outfits without including cozy layers. This combination of a tonal turtleneck sweater, long coat and acid wash jeans is equal parts comfortable and fashionable. Of course, for my footwear, I am again wearing some sneakers that help tie everything together. In this case though, let the denim fall over the shoes as I think it makes for a more streamlined look.
