Among the many things we're thankful for in the fashion world, we're especially happy that wearing sneakers beyond sporting affairs (like PE classes, lol) has become acceptable. White trainers used to be a staple for just for runners and cheerleaders, black sneakers were stereotyped as the go-tos of musicians and artists, while the bulky, chunky ones were reserved for fitness enthusiasts or ballers. Well, not anymore!
Times have changed and beyond the street wear movement and ~*athleisure*~, style stars today continue to emerge with new and improved, show-stopping sneaker ensembles. Here are a few to cop:
Floral top + white trousers
Taking cues from Angelina Cruz, she tones down the blooms of her very floral top with fresh white trousers and sneakers you wouldn't exactly call ~feminine~.
Loose t-shirt + mom jeans + printed socks
Leave it to Alex Gonzaga to shock and surprise with unique styling. This super casual look is made a ton more fun with the inclusion of funky socks. Add mirror shades for a full lewk.
Black and white OOTD + pastel bag
Going for a sightseeing stroll in the city? Dress comfortably in black and white casuals so you're sure to stand out against all the pretty backdrops you'll see! Liza Soberano adds in a surprise element to her look by way of a structured pastel yellow bag.
Lime green tee + gray separates + bucket hat
Camille Co is literally cool and comfy, sporting a stand-out lime green tee, and keeping everything else muted in shades of gray. It's a fun and easy outfit to move around in!
Denim overalls + trench coat
While it's impossible to dress this way in Manila, it's enough reason for you to get this outfit for when you travel somewhere colder. Jess Wilson has always had a distinct sense of style. Here she incorporates all the timeless classics: a khaki trench, jumpers we've all once worn, and sneakers.
Flowy, floral midi dress + white socks
Kyline Alcantara looks like she's stepped out of an old romantic film. Her look is dreamy and feminine and we're dying of OOTD envy. Brb, gotta scavenge through lola's baul and find a similar dress to wear with our sneaks!
Sheer top + leather skirt
Janine Gutierrez' modern take on sexy-chic: An edgy ensemble that includes a see-through top and a leather mini skirt, perfectly balanced out by her made-for-swagger sneakers.
Mustard maxi dress
The statuesque Pia Wurtzbach only needs one piece to show off what she's got. Less is more, they say, and Pia here is exact proof of that.
White tank top + hip-hop jeans
Sneakers have a way of conveying the IDGAF message, and Sue Ramirez amplifies this in this #coolgirl-approved look.
Multi-color mini dress
Sarah Lahbati wears candy-colored pastel hues from head to toe, featuring a teeny tiny multi-color dress and a cool pair of sneakers. She who dares wear color, wins!
Army green jacket + mom jeans + super thick white socks
The same rules apply when it comes to personal style: Go big, or go home. Leila Alcasid dares to go big and bulky, wearing everything oversized, and choosing a pair of uber thick socks to go with her sneakers.
White bikini + monogrammed silk cover up
An oldie but goodie: We're still in awe of this Naddie-approved outfit, which speaks much about her daring attitude, translating to her outstanding sense of style and charisma.
