Fashion Challenger: Sneaker Villa

Fashion Challenger - Sneaker VillaNow that the weather is breaking a bit (well, at least this week:)  I was able to wear a few pairs of sneakers instead of my regular boots.

Being a bit of a shop-a-holic, I own sneakers from the plain to the extraordinary!

Knowing that I had more than a few client appointments today, wearing sneakers in a fun yet professional look definitely appealed to me.  This thought gave way to this week’s fashion challenge.   Affectionately named ‘Sneaker Villa’, this week’s challenge leads me to want to know, for all of my fellow fashionistas who happen to also be sneakerheads, how you wear sneakers.

All About Sneaker Villa

  • DKNY’s Platform Sneakers were a hit for Fall 2014 NY Fashion Week
  • Sneakers should have excessive room at the toe area.  Contrary to what one might expect, the foot actually gets longer and more narrow when you stand.  If a shoe is just right sitting down, odds are it will be too short when you get up.  Make sure to rise and walk around with your sneakers on before purchasing them
  • When you buy sneakers, be sure to take out the sneaker’s flimsy sock liner and slip in an insole, recommended by any podiatrist or decent shoe salesperson, which should allow you to flex your toes more effectively.  Nothing should be hitting you mid-arch. The insoles absorb shock, so exercise is easier on your body

Fashion Challenger - Sneaker VillaYour Next Move:

As I’m sure you’ve guessed, it’s time for you to march to your closet and start pulling out a few pairs of sneakers.

Try a look that’s more polished with a solid colored pair of wedge sneakers.  Think of this as a look you would be able to wear on ‘Casual Friday’.  The second look I want you to try is one that’s all about fun!  Go for boldness, color, textures, and height.  Go for a look you would wear to an 80’s party or theme party.  I want you to go nuts on this one:)
