Upgraded White sneakers, either decorated with an array of fun patches and embellishments or with a metallic touch on the pure, innocent white leather. The upgraded white sneakers are the number one on the go shoes for busy girls this year. I must admit, I was postponing the purchase of my white sneakers for quite some time. And not because of what you might think.
Stroll down to Shop My Style and see all the new upgraded white sneakers listed on my Chic List.
True, I am addicted to heels, and often struggle with flats. Nevertheless, the white sneakers have been on my Chic Shopping List for several months. To be exact, ever since I tried these perfect white sneakers, I now own, at the Diesel Showroom in Milan some months ago. I felt sorry not to ask for this white pair of perfection straight at the Showroom. And had to wait months for them to enter the store instead.
THE NEW YEAR, THE NEW WHITE SNEAKERS
You might be wondering why I highlighted “upgraded” at the beginning, when I wrote the shoes on the go are the upgraded white sneakers this year. To put it short, the simple white sneakers are so 2016. This year the white sneakers are much more fun. The freshness of the sneakers comes merely from it shape this year. The borrowed-from-the-boys vibe is somehow almost gone. Since the metallic and embroidered patches take over the pure white leather of the sneakers.
WHAT WHITE SNEAKERS TO BUY NOW
Besides from looking for a classic low-top shape that comes in white leather, you need to look for the stars. Well, not only for the stars, for other decoration, too to be exact. Though you must admit, it sounded catchy.
Here are my favourite upgraded white sneakers. As usual, first, come the ones from the designers and bellow the one that won’t break your budget. You can find the one I’m wearing in the photos under Shop my Style as well. I decided to go for a minimum embellishment on my white sneakers this time. There is a metallic start at the back of my sneakers that makes these white sneakers to pop up on the grey concrete.
4 WAYS TO WEAR WHITE SNEAKERS NOW
There are four ways to wear white sneakers now and look fashionable and trendy this year. First, the chic way. We could say this one is a classic that suits every girl. It’s my on-the-go style as you can see in photos here. Simply wear your white sneakers with ripped jeans. You know, the more torn, the better.
Second, the retro-track way. As you know the 80s vibe and track pants are out and about this year. And appearing in track pants makes you look fashionable.
However, to pull off this sneaker-80s look you must wear your track pants like smart pants. Undoubtedly, they go best with heels. Yet, as said, the combination of white sneakers and track pants makes you look super fashionable this year. The key is in the top, and the bag you are wearing with them. Best top to wear with the white sneakers and track pants is obviously made of silk. Preferably sheer silk.

Then with the smart pants. As said, you should wear the track pants as smart pants as well. It is easier to do so, when the track pants are made of silk and flared. Anyway, back to classic smart pants. I like to wear my white sneakers with either wide or straight cropped leg. I’m not a fan of flared pants, despite how fashionable they tend to be. Still, this doesn’t mean I won’t try to pull off this outfit.
Finally with the mini skirt. I love this way of wearing the upgraded white sneakers. It’s so chic and fun.
HOW I STYLE AND WEAR THE WHITE SNEAKERS
Honestly, I wear sneakers only when I’m going for a marathon walk through the city, or I’m in a hurry. And know I will need to run that day. Read, when I’m off to the airport, catching the plane. You know, I keep coming late to the airport. And missing my flight’s way too often than anyone else I know. Anyway, I wear my white sneakers with the ripped jeans most of the time. Also, I wear them with anything that makes me look a bit taller. After all, I need to compensate the few centimeters I lose not wearing the heels, somehow.
You will be able to see more on how I wear the white sneakers in my video that is coming up in few weeks on my Youtube Channel. Subscribe now, here, to make sure you don’t miss it. You really must see all the fun I had wearing the white sneakers while running through the Tuileries Garden in Paris.
You might be wondering what made me fall in love with them. After all, the white sneakers are just sneakers at the end of the day. And no matter how much fashionistas love them, they are still not welcome in every situation. Certainly not on the Wall Street or in the traditional business world.
I keep having in mind the words of my old American business professor when he was having a flashback to his argument with one of his students who wanted to wear designer sneakers with her black cocktail dress to some formal reception they were going to. He simply couldn’t get how come a girl would prefer to wear sneakers over heels with the cocktail dress. “Made by designer, fancy or not, sneakers can’t be elegant,” he said.
Even though I disagree with my professor when it comes to elegance and white leather sneakers, still don’t get me wrong, I don’t think there is a space for sneakers on the Wall Street. I do believe sneakers don’t accomplish every outfit in the same way as heels. Or better say every person in the same way as heels. After all, heels give us certain confidence or at least make us look, confidante, the minute we put them on. As long as we know how to walk in heels, of course.
Back to my new crush on white sneakers. The reasons why I fall in love with them might not surprise you at all. It’s because of the sleek modern design and … comfort. Who would presume, right?

In case you are wondering, I’m strolling in Ljubljana today. Walking through the park Zvezda at the Kongresni Square and by the river Ljubljanica.
Before I invite you to continue exploring my blog, I have a confession to make. I didn’t have best hair day in the photos. As I couldn’t decide what to do with my hair. I guess not washing my hair before leaving home wasn’t the best idea. I thought it would be better to have slightly greasy hair today. After all, the combination of wind and humid in the Ljubljana isn’t the best for my hair. However, applying more than just a few drops of argan elixir was a fullish idea at the end.
