Happy Wednesday! Now, let’s talk sneakers.

I don’t understand women who don’t “like” sneakers. To me, this seems similar to saying you don’t like coats in winter. Trainers are like portable sleeping bags for your feet. I also, admittedly have a thing with socks: I love cozy socks. I think of them as mini sweatshirts made for your paws. So quite logically, sneakers are the outdoor equivalent. Who the heck wouldn’t be down with that?

Now, what to wear them with?

When it comes to sneakers, really anything goes. I often wear them with my favorite destructed denim, but I also really love wearing them with a dress. The sneaker x dress combo is nothing new though – some may even say that it is becoming basic {gasp} !! But I like wearing them with a dress that is on the more formal side to really bring the juxtaposition home. Take this look, for instance, which involves a red silk Helmut Lang dress that I wore to Christmas dinner this past year and my super worn in men’s Adidas campus kicks: Ahhhh versatility!

So yes, bottom line, it is totally acceptable to wear sneakers to your holiday parties. Who’s with me?
