Sneaker + Skirt = Sneakirt



When: On the last day of Spring, with lots of places to be around town, such as pilates class and shopping.

So I have to ask the question, would you wear sneakers with a skirt, or do you think it's just horrifying to even consider the thought?  I have seen the 1980's sneaker/skirt (Sneakirt) combo and it wasn't pretty then, however now I believe there may be some room for this trend if done correctly.

Number one: No socks please, we don't all need flashbacks from the 1980's & Working Girl.
Number two: The level of shoe detail should match the level of the outfit.  See above.
Number three: Color, color, color & pattern.  Use them to your advantage with your outfit.
Number four: High tops are not great for elongating the legs, a shorter skirt level is necessary.
Number five: Look for almond toe or semi pointed for an elongation of the leg.

This said, try things out.  Wear what you feel comfortable in.  My sister wore her Dr. Martens with EVERYTHING and you to can make it work if you own it.  It's the attitude that counts.
