The pairing of skirt and sneakers is one that will always bang in my opinion. It is like the ultimate cool kid look that nails street style every time. I have tried it several times and it always works either with mini, midi or maxi skirts.
I personally like to think that anyone can pull off the skirt and sneakers look regardless of body shape or size. I cannot pinpoint what it is exactly that makes it work, it just does. Apart from the comfort of course, it is a sporty-chic look that I love.
Skirt and Sneakers Trend
The trend has been around for a long time and I have tried it a couple of times myself. Although, I have not yet tried the maxi skirt and sneakers look but with the midi skirt, I can tell you it is a hit. Although there are people who don’t get the skirt and sneakers trend, it is a street style fave among the fashion crowd. It is effortless and chic at the same time. I feel it makes fashion look easy and also very inclusive.
Since I got this tartan skirt from my store, I knew it would be styled with sneakers and this exact top. The tartan trend is another one that I really had to try. I always had the feeling that it gave the secondary school vibes but this one is perfect. It is high-low and has pockets. Period. I finally got around to shooting with it and I am happy it came out well. I also wanted to try the outfit with heels and with a change of scenery. I went to a place in Surulere- Sweet City for the shoot, I really wanted to try the “glass picture”. I had to call the manager ahead though because we know how Nigerian establishments can be when they see a camera.
I would say though, that the sneakers won the look for me. It is a perfect weekend look too. One important thing I have learned in fashion is “Don’t knock down a look till you try it”. Honestly, with just a trial, I am sure you will be 70% in love with the skirt and sneakers trend as much as I am.
