The Ease of a Cute Pair of Hightops

Hightops are back and they are so incredibly easy to style. Whatever dress I'm wearing... short or long... shorts or bikers... dressed up or dressed down... I have been wearing my hightops on repeat since I purchased them. My go-to pair (linked here) has a zip side which I love! First is the ease of putting them on. No need to unlace... they just slip on and I'm out the door. Also - I only zip my hightops up half way for a more easy effortless look. Seriously, you are going to want to add a pair of these trendy sneakers to your summer wardrobe. Get ready to be inspired!

Summer is here and I know we all are about the cute sandals. Just don't forget about styling up those summer looks with a cute pair of hightops. There is something fresh about a classic white pair of sneakers with a cute sundress. Don't let the higher cut of these hightops scare you - wear them just as you would your trendy sneakers. Throw them on with your favorite sundress for outdoor events, grad parties, and just running around. I love the ease of just having a pair of sneakers on my feet - I feel like I have no limitations. There's nothing worse then showing up to an event only to realize you're going to be trekking through the lawn in heels. Adding sneakers to your dress brings on such a cool effortless vibe.

And absolutely reach for those high tops when wearing your longer summer dresses. My rule of thumb... make sure your dress hits no further down then your ankle. Showing a little skin breaks up your outfit and give you more of a summer vibe. Also, don't be afraid of mixing hightop sneakers with a dressier outfit. Here, my sundress and leather bag are dressy enough to wear at a summer wedding. But then I added my white hightop sneakers and this brought my look from formal to laidback. Also, I'm keeping my hightops unzipped half way - because I'm all about a casual vibe. Unexpected and effortlessly cool. Plus - I feel so comfortable!

Hightop sneakers also are so cute styled with shorts. Whether you're styling cutoff denim shorts or even bikers, hightop sneakers will add the perfect amount of interest to your outfit. Here, I'm wearing my hightops with a sweater vest, leather blazer, and bikers. My blazer and handbag have a polished look to them, but by adding my biker shorts and hightops, I bring on a casual vibe. Try styling these sneakers with bikers and an oversized graphic t, sweatshirt, or denim jacket. You will be amazed at how often you reach for these shoes.

Wearing denim shorts... reach for your hightops for the ultimate casual uniform. Here I am literally wearing a pair of frayed denim shorts with an untucked graphic T and a utility jacket. Running errands... heading to the park... maybe even hitting a garage sale or two. These sneakers make my ordinary outfit look and feel on trend.

Here my outfit is polished... dressy skirt, sweater, and bag. I added my hightop sneakers, keeping that zipper half-way zipped, and my outfit is still dressy and polished... but with a casual vibe. Try styling these trendy sneakers in unexpected ways. You'll be wearing them on repeat all summer long!

Happy styling!
