Sneakers are no longer limited to workouts and errand days since they’ve become a tasteful finishing touch to street wear. Rather than performance, people have been wearing sneakers more for aesthetics and lifestyle. This class of footwear has become a staple for any chic woman because they effortlessly bring looks together. Best of all, sneakers keep you comfortable while still maintaining a level of style, a combination that’s hard to come by in the world of fashion. Whether it’s an edgy, preppy or casual look, top your outfit off with these trendy women’s sneakers for 2018!
Shoes sporting some glitter will add a pop to any plain outfit, taking it from basic to dazzling. If you’re hesitant about these being too flashy, remember that they’ll be at ground level and not in anyone’s face. Well, unless you want it to be. Look towards the J.W. Anderson x Converse and Vans x Opening Ceremony collaborations for inspiration!
Whether it’s a continuation of the patterns in your outfit or something that breaks the pattern, sneakers that sport a variety of creative prints will stand out all on their own. Even more eye-catching is the latest trend of continuing the patterns into the sole!
Pinks, sky blues, and mint greens will never go out of fashion, regardless of the season. Wearing pastel shoes is an effortless way to accessorize and add a dainty splash of color to your outfits! A perfect example is the Reebok Classic Leather collection, with its classy pastel mint green shade. If you’re more of a pink girl, look into the Nike Internationalist SE.
Color blocked sneakers are what you’ve been seeing on every fashion blogger’s street wear post recently. You may recognize the popular pair from Balenciaga, which gives off a retro feel that pairs perfectly with lax street fashion.
5. Gum Soles
Another throwback feature of shoes that’s making a comeback, gum soles add a playful touch to any outfit. Not only are they eye-catching, but they’ll also add a few inches to your stature! Rihanna’s Fenty Cleated Creeper Suede Sneakers definitely emphasize these quirky soles.
As seen in the shoes mentioned in other trends, designers aren’t shying away from mixed materials. Whether it’s corduroy and ruffles, like Ganni, or leather and canvas, these mixes make for eye-catching footwear. They also open up room for experimentation with the fabrics of your outfits as well!
Old is new with these trends. Despite the looks, these are not your grandpa’s sneakers! Whether you’re looking at one the ones released by Acne Studios or Fila, they’re big and bulky, but very comfortable and allow you to play with spatial balance in your outfits.
Although they’re not as subtle as pastels, shoes sporting rainbow heels and stripes will be all the rage this year, as previewed by Sean Wotherspoon’s release of the Corduroy Air Max 97/1s.
Shoes can say a lot about a person, so pick a pair that speaks for you! With these unique looks, you’ll never have a bad or boring outfit day and it would require minimal effort to throw some shoes on. Bring comfort and style together by investing in these trendy looks. With a pair of these, you can easily put your best foot forward in 2018!
