I never thought I was a sneakers girl (aside from going to the gym) and didn’t fully understand the fascination. Dresses with sneakers was the furthest thing in my mind. It wasn’t until the classic white sneakers re-emerged a couple years. Now I love to wear a pair of white sneakers. At first, I only associated wearing sneakers with jeans. So I only wore them with jeans for a casual outfit.
The more I wore them, the more I realized that they’re so versatile and I started to experiment wearing them with dresses. Now I love to wear sneakers with dresses all the time. As long as they’re the classic white shoes, I’m all set. I especially love to wear them when we travel. Whenever we travel, we walk everywhere. We can easily walk over 20,000 steps a day. So I obviously want my feet to be comfortable and always make sure to pack them with me.
How To Wear White Sneakers With Dresses
Since I love wearing white sneakers with dresses, here are some quick tips!
Look For the White Tennis Shoes
The white tennis shoe style has that classic look. Which means they can go with anything!
Make Sure They’re Comfortable
Maybe it’s just me, but if I’m going to wear sneakers, then I want to make sure they’re comfortable. It’s the perks of wearing a pair of white sneakers. Trust me, there’s a few sneakers I’ve bought in the past that were not comfortable.
Keep It Simple
You want to make sure that your white sneakers are simple, no frill and no trendy details. You want them to last and again go with every outfit and dress. While they may not look anything special, that’s the point. You want your dress to compliment the shoes not clash.
Leather Shoes Are Best
Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s better when the exterior of my tennis shoes are made with leather. They’re easy to clean. You can easily remove any scuff or dirt. Don’t get me wrong, I’m also a fan of the canvas shoes too. However, they don’t maintain that white color very long.
Best White Sneakers to Wear With Dresses
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you may have noticed that there is this one pair of white sneakers that I wear and I swear by. It is the Morrison Sneakers by Naturalizer. I rave about Naturalizer all the time, but their shoes are THAT good and these sneakers are THAT good. You’ll see in all my outfit ideas below how well they pair with dresses. But I love them because they have the classic white tennis shoes style, leather exterior, and are EXTREMELY comfortable. I’m also considering getting one of their slip-on sneakers.
Dress Outfits Styled With White Sneakers
Here are outfit ideas that you can wear with white sneakers. As you can tell from most of these photos, I wore them when we were traveling. They were perfect for Rome, Barcelona, Lisbon, etc. It’s a great way to keep that casual style when wearing dresses while still being comfortable.
