When I was a teenager, sneakers were my go-to for comfort and style. During the summer, I remember my sneaker of choice were a crisp pair of white, low-top Nikes also known as “uptowns” in the hood. And if they got dirty at all, that meant it was time to purchase a new pair. I made great childhood memories with those Nikes every summer.
However, lately, my feet have been consistently rocking a pair of fresh white Converses. It’s become a renewed love affair actually. As a matter of fact, I think I’ve been wearing it too much because I’m noticing scuff marks already. I’ve realized that some people think that with sneakers, you are often limited on outfits because the traditional concept is just throw on anything (casual or raggedy) and go! There’s no thought or effort into putting outfits together…until now. You will find that with Converses, it’s more versatile than you think. And you can actually look good doing it too!
Below are each of my top 3 outfits for Stylin’ Mr. Chuck Taylor with pants and with maxi dresses…
I’ve been mixing ensembles together to go with Mr. Chuck for the past few weeks and decided to share some outfits I think are totally doable and stylish. I won’t lie, this was a little challenging but I think I’ve accomplished something inspiring.
I’ve discovered it’s sometimes good to challenge your inner-stylish-sneaker-self. That’s where great personal style always begin… from within.
