I have read a million new year’s resolutions for girls planning to wear more heels this coming year! Well, not me! I have finally discovered that sneakers are the new heels. Yes sneakers are the new heels!!
Between comfort and style, I will probably pick comfort with a touch of style; over a fabulous pair of heels that’ll make me cry by the end of the day. The truth is, some days are truly hectic; and there is no way I’d wear heels for a back to back meetings’ day or even for a back to back events’ day!
The solution seems to be simple; especially that most brands are making it a point to make the most stylish sneakers ever. These are exactly meant to replace heels, when feet pain is not an option. In effect, shoe makers are not the only fashion makers that are adopting a more practical approach to fashion; it is also clothes designers and accessories as well. Fashion meets comfort is definitely the new trend in the house.
To pull this look for a day of casual events; I went for a GAP light colored cropped jeans, a military print studded top, a military print Converse, a Risk London beige leather clutch and a Hogan beige leather jacket. I had the option to add brown boots or peep toes with that outfit; but NO WAY!!
My Advice: Make sure you have a nice collection of comfortable sneakers; they come really handy sometimes. I’d go for a few neutrals and a few statement ones to fill in all the gaps.
