No doubt a sneaker is the most comfortable shoe a woman could own. However, due to it's history, some might not realize just how practical and functional a sneaker can be when worn with the perfect outfit.
You can put your ballerina flats aside and embrace the comfort and cool factor that sneakers offers with these 5 ways to make sneakers chic!
1. Pair with a maxi skirt and tied button down

We love a good maxi skirt, especially when details such as accordion pleats and ruffles are added to the mix. Although these are generally feminine pieces, wearing your maxi skirts with sneakers adds an immediate edge and will have you moving quicker and more comfortably even in longer skirts.
2. Wear them with a statement dress

While statement dresses are often paired with strappy sandals and espadrille wedges, especially during the summer time, skip the expected and reach for your favorite pair of sneakers next time you slip into a statement dress. So long as your dress is short enough to wear with flat sneakers so you're not tripping on the hem, have fun rocking a more practical and fun way to wear a statement maxi or midi dress.
3. A graphic tee, mini skirt and sneakers

If you're ready to take an already edgy outfit up a notch, next time you wear a mini skirt and graphic tee add a pair of sneakers into the mix. With this look, you can even try a bolder sneaker like a high top or metallic color.
4. Slip them on with fun pants

Not much is groundbreaking with wearing sneakers with pants. However, skip the jeans and pixies and go with a pant that packs a statement. Whether it's a pair of jogger pants or a brightly colored culotte, adding some sneakers to these styles is more original and fun.
5. With a t-shirt dress

There isn't much else in a wardrobe as practical as a t-shirt dress. It's a laidback, comfortable piece that is easy to look put together while wearing in no time. So if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Keep the theme going with an equally practical and comfortable shoe and reach for your sneakers.
