Sneakers and mini skirts? Bien sûr. You know this has been the favourite combination of fashion gals around the globe for seasons now. And it seems like we are not over this fashion trend just yet. Not even in winter. So here it is, the way to style your white sneakers and mini skirt for cold winter days.
After so many emails I got about how to wear sneakers and skirt in the winter, there was nothing left for me to do but to put on some sneakers and a mini and make this outfit work for winter. Yes, you can wear white sneakers, and a mini skirt in winter too. Well as long as you choose the right combination that can combat the snow and cold.
HEAD OVER HEELS FOR SNEAKERS AND MINI SKIRTS
For all of you who don’t really get why we are head over heels for sneakers and mini skirt, let me remind you this one thing. Both, the sneakers and mini skirts are in fashion right now.Ps. In case you missed my Spring Summer 18 Fashion Report, be sure to check it out later over here.
Anyway, fashion aside, we are not in love with the sneakers and mini skirts just because they are in fashion. The truth is we love this trendy street style because it’s the chicest way to wear a mini skirt and the chicest way to wear the sneakers. Well, right after the sneakers and suit combo that I’m about to wear quite often this season. But more about the sneaker suit combo when it actually gets warmer. It’s still winter here, and we still need to discuss sneakers and mini skirts.
Moreover, we love sneakers and mini skirts in one outfit because this is the way Parisians wear their mini skirts in real life. You didn’t think they really run around the Paris in ballet pumps, did you? Well, they do, but not when wearing mini skirts. The chicest Parisians wear ballet pumps with jeans and mini skirts with sneakers. Surely, they might be hiding a pair of pumps in their canvas bags, but you will more likely see them wearing white sneakers and black mini skirt on the streets. Especially in the morning.
HOW TO WEAR SNEAKERS AND MINI SKIRT IN WINTER
Anyway, we are not trying to copycat the way Parisians wear sneakers and mini skirts this time. I already showed you how to steal this look from Parisians twice before. Remember here during the Spring Summer Paris Fashion Week 2017 and here in Ljubljana.
This time is all about how to wear sneakers and mini skirts in winter. Read in very cold windy winter.
So how to wear sneakers and mini skirt in winter then? Quite simple actually. All you need to do is to find a warm skirt, grab a long wool coat and put a beret or headband on your head. Oh and don’t forget the tights.
But more about my tips on how to style sneakers and mini skirt for cold winter days a bit later. First a few words about my look. And where to get it of course.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.
Be sure to save, pin and print this EDIT. You know, to remember you how to style your sneakers and mini skirts in winter. Oh, and don’t forget to share it with your girl squad. Especially with that friend of yours who keeps saying she can’t wear mini skirts because she has no shoes to wear them with.
You know pretty much all the things I’m wearing this time from my previous posts. Still, in case you forgot, here is where to get them. Well most of them or at least very similar ones.
Starting from the head this time. With this soft and warm headband from Bart’s(last seen here). In case you are wondering, it’s made of faux fur. And I bought it on Amazon. Yes, even fashion girls swipe through Amazon occasionally. You can get the same headband over here.
Ha, it seems I actually tried to bring a Parisian touch to this outfit after all. With a red lipstick. I’m wearing Dior matte red lipstick. My favourite one of course. You can shop it here.
UNDER THE COAT
You already know this double-breasted wool coat. I mean it’s my staple coat every winter. Especially when it’s very cold or I need to wear an outwear that doesn’t overshine everything else. It’s from Weekend Maxmara. Already sold out. But you can get almost the same, minus two buttons, yet same material from MaxMara here.
Under this double-breasted coat, you can see me wearing a black silk top from Juicy Couture. Yes, the same top I wore in my two previous posts. OMG, I’m repeating myself. Well, you know what? I don’t care! I mean let’s be honest, show me a 20 something girl who doesn’t wear her favourite pieces on repeat. Besides the legit fashion style is all about wearing the same pieces in a million different ways.
MINI SKIRTS AND SNEAKERS
Finally the mini skirt and sneakers. This black and white plaid tweed mini skirt is from Storets. I’m afraid it’s already sold out, but there is another black and white tweed skirt you can get from Storets over here. In hound’s tooth. Or get a plaid black and white tweed from Balmain over here. Ps. I’m wearing my tweed mini skirt in the wrong way. I turned the front to the back to make it look shorter. Otherwise, this is the same skirt as I wore over here with the white turtleneck. Remeber?
Lastly the sneakers. I’m wearing my old white sneakers from Diesel. Can’t say they are the most comfortable sneakers I have. Because they certainly aren’t. I really don’t get why. I mean they are made of Italian leather, and they were so comfortable when I tried them on in Diesel Showroom in Milan. But the one I have just don’t feel the same. I don’t know, but perhaps there was a slight divergence in the process when they were making my pair. Or I simply don’t know how to walk in flats. Wait, this is actually confirmed. Anyway, you can order them here. Try them on and if it’s not a match return them back. Oh, I just love shopping online.
Almost forgot about the gloves and the bag. You can find them all in the gallery above.
HOW TO STYLE SNEAKERS AND MINI SKIRT IN WINTER 2018
Finally, back to how to style sneakers and mini skirt in winter. I feel I need to share these 3 tips with you. Just to make sure you get this style formula right.
#3 TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR SNEAKERS AND MINI SKIRT IN WINTER 2018
#1 PUT ON THE WINTER TWEED MINI SKIRT
First the skirt. As said before, you need to find a warm skirt. I’m not sure if I ever told you, well I probably did. Anyway, the thing is that I get cold easily. Therefore I have to wear layers of clothes all the time. Mostly silk and wool. Or tweed. Like this time. Yes, you get it right. That warm mini skirt you should wear with your sneakers in winter is no other mini but the one made of tweed. The real or fake, as long as it’s thick. You know, not every tweed you get is the real wool tweed. Still, even the one made of synthetic materials and worn together with the long wool coat should do. And yes, tweed is in fashion for 2018.
Ps. Shop my favourite tweed mini skirts from the gallery below. The link will take you straight to the store, where you can buy the skirts you like.
#2 WEAR THE RIGHT SNEAKERS
No, not any kind of sneakers would do. First of all the sneakers, you are wearing with your mini skirt, should be white. Or at least pastel. But fashionistas prefer to go for white ones this season. As it goes for the model of your sneakers, you have two choices. Well, actually three. You can opt for the classics as I did, a New Balance as most of the Parisians, or the ugly futuristic sneakers. Ps. I’m getting my first ugly pair this month. Surely you know this, if you read my Spring Summer 2018 Shopping list.
#3 DON’T FORGET THE WINTER WARMERS
Only the chic and warm ones of course. A hat or a headband is a must. Also the tights. Although, the one no one can actually see.
