I started writing this blog post last year, but it got put on the back burner and I never finished it, then a few weeks ago I started working on it again but I thought it would be smart to ask you guys what classic sneakers every girl needs to make sure I was on the right track with this post!
I was pleasantly surprised that I was and SOO many of you answered the 3 pairs of sneakers I included here. Being that 2020 has made us all a much more casual version of ourselves I thought that this would be a perfect time to hit publish on this!
3 Pairs of Sneakers Every Girl Needs:
VANS OLD SKOOL
I was a VANS girl in my teens and after a brief hiatus I’m back to being a VANS girl! I’m not sure why I stopped wearing them, but they are hands down my favorite sneakers to wear with casual looks. I’m more prone to grab for them with jeans, but they look equally as good with dresses.
I’m a sucker for the classic black & white pair so if you’re only picking up one I suggest it be that color, but I wear mine so much I’m deciding on what color I should buy next, I’m leaning towards red, but also love this burgundy pair & these suede green ones!
CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR
Let’s be serious..who hasn’t owned a pair of Converse in their lifetime? Everyone may have their preference between high tops and low tops (I’m a low top girl), but everyone has them currently or has had them in the past.
They are THE BEST. They go with everything, they last FOREVER and they are the most comfortable! I think at some point in my life I’ve owned every color they make, but right now I’m partial to black and white Converse. Black has always been my go-to, but I picked up white earlier this year and I’ve actually been wearing them more than any other pair I own now! If I was to take a trip and could only bring one pair of sneakers with me it would definitely be white Converse.
Not going to lie, I was hesitant about adding a pair of Adidas Superstars into my adult wardrobe because they remind me of my Catholic school girl “summer” uniform, but they’ve grown on me. And they’re beyond comfortable!
I actually initially bought these to wear with my Cher from Clueless Halloween Costume, but had been eyeing them for a while and knew they’d be a keeper once I wore them a few times.
They’re also a little sportier than my other two go to pairs of sneakers. You will NEVER catch me wearing athletic sneakers out with any outfit other than actual workout clothes (it’s one of those trends I like on other people and despise on myself), so this is a nice compromise for me.
