Why The Classic White Sneaker is The Most Important Shoe in Your Closet

Spring is no doubt my favorite season not only because the change in weather – but because I get to bring out the best spring shoes too. Obviously, this year is a BIT different with social distancing, so instead of reaching for (and ordering more of) my typical strappy sandals, I’ve just been wearing my sneakers. The one I’ve been wearing the most has been the classic white sneaker because they go with EVERYTHING.

Perfect for quick dashes to get groceries, taking Bennett for a walk, and just hanging out together on the back porch. They’re basically on the same level as a classic white button down or your favorite pair of jeans. They’re ultra comfy, timeless, and look great with anything. You can style them with joggers when it’s chilly out and with casual dresses once the weather warms up. Either way, they always make a stylish outdoor-ready outfit. My exact pair are the Sofft Somers lace-up sneakers – see why I love this brand so much in this blog postand see all the ways I’ve been wearing them below.

1. Joggers and Loungewear

Athleisure and sneakers have been in the spotlight for the last few years, and I think it’s safe to say that they’re not just a trend but wardrobe staples. I basically live in joggers and loungewear while I work at home, but this look is ideal for running around town on the weekends when you throw in the Sofft Somers lace-up sneakers. It’s cozy, comfy and definitely on-trend. I’ve even started reaching for them before cute sandals! Plus, your feet will thank you for the multi-layer insole that adds extra comfort.

2. Midi Dress

If you’ve got your hands full but still want to look put together, pair the Sofft Somers lace-up sneakers with a midi dress. It’s the best way to stay comfy and cute while taking on all your daily activities. The perforated leather design makes it feel extra special and more breathable too – like the Sofft Somers slip-ons.

3. Casual Mini Dress

Give your favorite mini dress a sporty twist by pairing it with crisp white sneakers. I love how these basic sneakers make a feminine dress feel instantly cooler. Accessorize your look further with a matching mini handbag and denim jacket. If you’re not into white sneakers, the Sofft Somers lace-up are also available in 3 other fresh color palettes that make getting dressed so much fun!

4. Rompers

White sneakers go beyond just being comfy and don’t always have to be styled with casual looks. I love how it gives an unexpected edginess when paired with a fun piece like a romper. I threw on a tie dye romper while we were at the beach and then a pair of sneakers for strolling with Bennett.

5. Wide Leg Jeans

If there’s anything I’ve learned in all the years of documenting my outfits, it’s that wide-leg silhouettes will elevate the most casual shoe styles. And your outfit pairings are basically endless with wide-leg jeans and white sneakers. Try a billowy, off-the-shoulder blouse, basic tank top, or puff sleeve top. You really can’t go wrong.
