I was perusing my usual websites when I stumbled upon these cute shoes from Vans. One of my favourite things to wear in summer is a short skirt, simple tank top and pear of sneakers. Although they are really loud and out there they can be a cute accessory to a simple outfit. I would pair them with skinny jeans, either dark or light, and a plain shirt. The shirt doesn’t have to be the same colours as the shoes, because trying to match shades of colours can be quite tricky, just as long as it is similar and doesn’t clash. This means, no pink and red!
Another cute way to wear these shoes is with a skirt, such as one of my all time faves from American Apparel. Their cute jersey pocket skirt is a inexpensive and a must-have for me, especially in heather grey; you can wear the skirt higher on your body and therefore making it a mini, or lower at your natural waist and making it more work or everyday approrprate. I tend to pair the skirt with solid ribbed tank tops tucked in. I am also bright colour kind of girl and do not hold back when it comes to colours and prints so that is probably why I am attracted to these shoes — they are a statement piece and would complement a black, green or even yellow tank!
One of my other summer faves is pairing the classic champion low rise Keds with white socks and a cute skirt of nice pair of skinny jeans. A problem I have in general is transitioning my skinny jeans into all-season wearables. I used to hate how when it was cold and rainy I couldn’t wear my skinny jeans because I didn’t want to pair them with cute flats which would get ruined or with leather runners that don’t match much of anything. And no need to break the bank either. I am happy to report I found a cute pair of imitation Keds at payless for under $30!
Summer isn’t so hard when you know how to pair classics with colours to make your style your own!
