What We’re Wearing: Slip-On Sneakers


You’ve already heard us wax poetic on our love for easy but chic (and don’t forget affordable) summer dressing. You know we’re heel girls, but also have a lazy streak. So – what’s our take on sneakers?

We love a fashion-conscious take on comfy footwear and this summer we’re all about slip-ons. Take a cue from the style set and treat them like flats – a patterned pair will help you to nail the mixed print trend and add an effortless element to any outfit.

We first fell in love with this trend when we spotted it in Madewell‘s Fall 2013 lookbook, and our obsession hasn’t stopped since. Our favorites include Superga’s Gingham A-Line Sneakers at Nordstrom for $64.95, Jeffrey Campbell’s Hawk Eyelet Sneakers – now 70% off at Shopbop for $55.50, and the adorable selection offered at BucketFeet for around $65.

It’s also worth taking a look at Payless, Target, and Urban Outfitters for slip ons, and particularly their in store selections. These brands are known to have similar versions of the styles offered by these name brand designers, but often for a quarter of the price, and many times can be found in store if not online.
