Comfort junkies rejoice, athleisure is still the top trend of Fall/Winter 2018! The most important element of the perfect athleisure look is of course, statement sneakers. Toss out your boring sneaks and elevate your athletic style to a whole new level!

Statement sneaks are fun to wear, but can be a little daunting if you don’t know how to style them. That’s where I come in. I took to instagram (be sure to follow us) to ask which of our fabulously unique statement sneaks I should style and these camo-esque sneaks were the winner! 

I love these sneakers for many reasons, the first being that it has a little platform, which is nice for us shorter ladies. It gives you a little bit of height without being completely noticeable that you’re a few inches taller. I also love the bronze-metallic sheen to them. Bronze is a huge color trend for fall. It compliments all of our favorite fall colors, including navy, burgundy, and olive. 

The trick to styling statement footwear is to keep your outfit simple and let the shoes shine! I fashioned 3 looks revolving around these lovely sneaks to hopefully inspire you to take a step outside your comfort zone and play around with fun shoes!

For this first look, I wanted to go full athleisure. I paired our sneaks with this amazing navy sweater by Planet. The cutout detail across the front of the sweater is lined with mesh, which gives an edgy vibe to the look, along with the one shoulder cutout with the raw hemline. I paired the top with these super comfy leggings with the banded cuts on the knee. These are also mesh lined, which ties the whole look together.

This next look is a step up from casual, without being overly dressed up. I paired this olive zip sweater by Sympli with these vegan leather brown leggings. The tones in this outfit really play well with the tones of the shoes. The neckline of this top is simply adorable and the nice oversized fit is so flattering to all shapes and sizes. The leggings are amazing because they make you feel nice and secure, without feeling too tight. 

The last look might be my favorite (I’m biased because I love all these pieces so much). I paired this mauve/blush colored turtleneck with a simple burgundy cardigan. Side note, turtlenecks are so stylish for this time of year. If gives you a polished and chic look, so I highly recommend trying that style out! As for the cardigan, you can never go wrong. This one is a little thinner material, but is perfect for this wishy-washy Cleveland weather we have. I finished this look with these super fun frayed jeans. I’m not lying to you when I say that these jeans are the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever put on. They are so soft and stretchy, but hold their shape amazingly. And the diagonal fraying is perfect for showing off your statement sneaks!

So next time you’re in our shop, don’t be hesitant on trying those fun statement sneakers you’ve been eyeing!

Happy Shopping! 💜
