Most would not think to pair athletic footwear with dresses but now is the time to try the look, Jane. I love wearing a curve hugging cotton dresse or breezy, drapey modern one with sneakers. The juxtaposition of the two makes the look rock and seem totally chic. Add on a killer leather jacket, statement necklace and you’re ready to work it.

Bonus trick: Want an easy way to get more mileage out of your kicks? Switch out the laces to a pop color on these all white shelltops! Adding a navy lace instead of the white gave me an awesome, unexpected color contrast! Or go totally girlie and add hot pink!
