Stylish Sneakers: How to Wear Them to Work

Love the idea of wearing sneakers to the office but think they're just too casual? Aside from professional service firms like - law firms and formal corporate environments - like investment banks, sneakers are acceptable to wear to work just as long as you style them correctly. Just keep in mind though, don't wear your old, worn running sneakers from 10 years ago (unless you're looking to get fired)!


Although we love to wear sky-high stilettos, booties, and ballet flats, we still love to wear sneakers (especially if we can wear them to work). But it can be tough to determine what styles and colors are considered too casual or bold for the office. So, we scoured the streets, blogs, and magazines to find the best looks for you. Here are our top comfort picks for this spring season. 


 For those chilly spring mornings

1). Channel your inner RiRi by dressing up standard white sneakers like the Puma Basket Classics with a pair of fitted, dark denim and a uniquely-patterned top like our Put Together Patchwork Long Sleeve Top ($24.99) and Blue and Beige Evening Satchel Handbag ($49.99). This outfit is perfect for those cool early spring mornings.

2). Have a meeting with your boss this afternoon and then an after work date but don't want to switch your shoes several times throughout the day? Don't worry. We have the perfect solution!


Try pairing Reebok Trainers with a structured black blazer, black skinny pants or dark flared denim, our Sunny Flower Yellow Button Down top ($24.99) and our Seventies Throwback Olive Green and Yellow Shoulder bag ($54.99) for the ultimate cool girl yet polished look.

3). Love classic style sneakers like Adidas or Converse but you're afraid they'll be too casual if you wear them to work? Try pairing classic sneaker silhouettes with a light-colored denim skirt and our Blue as Day Sweatshirt with Sheer Floral Cutouts ($29.99) on casual Fridays. If it's still cold outside, add a long duster coat for a more luxe look. You'll be sure to be the most stylish gal at work.

4). Thinking about wearing slip-on sneakers to work but don't want to look like you're going to a weekend barbecue or run errands on a Saturday afternoon?


If your office is casual and creative, try pairing these classics with a long, pleated skirt, a fitted pencil skirt, or a pair of black cigarette pants and a sweater like our Where's Whitney Blue and White Stripe Top ($24.99) for a downtown, edgy look. This outfit transitions perfectly from day to evening or work to weekend.

Can you look professional and polished in sneakers?  We think so!   No matter what sneaker you choose to wear to work, make sure the style is clean and crisp, and fits into your office dress code.
