You may be dazzled by all of the trendy off-the-shoulder blouses out there, but there’s only one purchase everyone needs to have now that it’s officially summer — white sneakers. I buy a new pair every summer. I wear the hell out of mine — they literally go with everything — and by the time I’m ready to retire them at the end of the season, I know I’ve gotten my money’s worth. I lived in these classics last summer, and this time around I wanted an edgier vibe. I found these sneakers during a limited-time sale online, and I had to share with you because they’re not only extremely comfortable and chic, but they’re on sale now! I fell in love with these babies because of the perforated leather and cheetah print haircalf, and other people apparently have too because I’m getting compliments from guys and girls left and right. I recently wore them with this dress, also a new favorite summer buy, when I went to The Taste of Randolph. I paired them with cuffed jeans when I saw Paul Simon at Ravinia, and if you see me in my neighborhood, I’ll most likely be wearing them when I’m at the park with my kids. Even if this pair doesn’t match your personal style, I’ve included a few of my other top picks below.
Whether you’re in workout wear or dressed to impress, these shoes go both ways.
1. These Adidas Superstar sneakers are the perfect mix of retro and modern.
2. These classic, unisex converse are a must-have with their low price and durability. P.S. I tie the laces under the tongue so I can slip them on and go.
3. We’re obsessed with these Michael Kors slip-on sneakers. They’re perforated like the Loeffler Randall shoes but look similar to Vans.
