Embrace a Nautical Lifestyle

If you’re not already on board with the white sneaker trend then this post will help you to master the perfect outfit and give you some great tips on how to recreate an ideal go-anywhere look! You need not look very far for inspiration when it comes to sneaker dressing just try scrolling through your Instagram feed, flip through the pages of Vogue or just look around the next time your walking through the urban streets in your city and inspiration will find you.

The three main pieces to this look consist of a nautical top, cropped black skinny jeans and a pair of white sneakers. When teaming the right top with your look, it helps to think ‘nautical’, as introducing stripes into your look with white sneakers will ensure your outfit is fresh and on-trend. The top that I am wearing is part of Kookai’s new season collection and is available in boutiques Australia wide and online. When deciding on bottoms to pair with your nautical top, be open to a range of different denims, a light wash denim will work just as well or even think about introducing a white boyfriend jean for something different.

For this look, I decided to opt for a black denim jean and to give a fresh take on the staple black skinny jean, I simply rolled up the bottoms to form a cuff. Keep in mind that when you are wearing sneakers with jeans, you will need to ensure there is balance in your outfit and by cuffing your jeans it will create the illusion of longer legs.

 

 

As you may be like myself and not 6 foot tall, you may have been apprehensive about wearing flats then this will be a great way to avoid looking short.

While a sneaker may be the easiest most comfortable shoe I have worn on any previous blog post, it can take time to find right pair to fit your wardrobe needs. Consider the dominating colour palettes that are in your current wardrobe and choose a shade of white that will compliment your pieces. Remember if you really want to nail this trend, then you will need to work sneakers into a variety of looks so it might be worth investing in a pair that will provide good support for the foot.

Try introducing a few pieces of accessories with your outfit without going overboard, as it will interfere with the flow of the outfit. Simply add a few pieces on the wrist such as a tan cuff for interest. However, if your wearing a t-shirt just as I am, then avoid wearing a necklace as this will interfere with the proportions of the top. Remember sneaker dressing doesn’t need to have limitations, don’t be afraid to pair your sneakers with a high-waisted short or even try teaming them with a light-wash denim shirt dress for something different.
