On our way to happy hour, my girlfriends were agonizing over which sneakers to buy. They wanted a trendy pair to go with their skinny jeans or shorts. They'd had no luck finding anything that didn't make their feet look big, weird, felt uncomfortable, or that their teenage kids weren't wearing.
I've never had this dilemma because I've been wearing the same brand my whole adult life, and I love them just as much today as I ever did. There is nothing more classic than jeans, t-shirt and a good pair of sneakers. It's a cute look that is both ageless and timeless, so long as it's the right pair of sneakers!
My forever go to brand is SUPERGA. I've always had them in white, the 2750 Cotu Classic sneaker. They normally retail around $65, but you can often find them on sale at different stores if you check the internet. They have tons of other great colors, and I love that they're Italian designed, the shape is stylish and they don't make your feet look big or weird. The bonus is you can throw them in the washing machine when they get dirty, so you never have to worry about falling victim to the grunge look. I wear them with Nike no show socks which work well because the tacky blob at the back of the heel keeps them in place. The SUPERGAs look super cute with shorts, leggings, any sports wear, casual mini dresses, crop pants, even long skirts and jeans of course. I would not be without a pair of these essential kicks, and I wear them with all of the above!
Because they're Italian, you may want to check out the European shoe size conversion table on my Fashion Tools page. I normally wear an American size 9, so I have the sneakers in European size 39.5.
For this outfit, I paired distressed boyfriend jeans from The Gap, and this darling lace cami from H&M which is a sexy contrast to the otherwise sporty look. I also like to wear an over-sized chunky knit cardigan over this outfit when the weather turns cooler. In keeping with the overall sporty look, I wore Ray Ban's blue gradient lens aviators. I felt totally hip and had quite the spring in my step!
