Sneakers are most common to be related as sport shoes, but with the current trend, it evolved to more towards casually styling it for fashion and can be mix matched with various outfits.

Three (3) fashion styles to tryout with sneakers.

1.  The most common look is to pair up sneakers with sporty active outfit.  This type of look is suitable for gym or jog at the park.  Hey, we do wanna look good when working out don't we?  I always go for striking colors!  Hot pink! Lime! Sky blue! The striking it is, the better!  Why settle for dull looking colored shoes, people can't see you in the dark hee~  Colors are self-esteem booster, it makes you look good while wearing it and it's a mood booster too.  We all love to insta

    2.  Who says women can't wear sneakers with a nice cute dress or skirt?  It is pretty common these days!  Matching a dress or skirt with sneakers definitely gives out an edgy look.  Think comfort!  I know beauty is pain (in heels for walking around the mall for hours, I applaud to those who does this in a daily basis, you have my utmost respect, but for an excessive runner like me, I occasionally feel my back bone cracking, so yeah every now and then I'd rather be wearing sneakers or flat) but think of walking around in comfort and still be in style.  Win win situation!

    Not forgetting the doods, you could work your suit with sneakers too.  Look at Jared Leto.

    3.  Wear sneakers with your everyday casual look, shirt and jeans or shorts, we love simplicity and we also love to feel comfortable with what we are wearing.  We do not have winter season in Malaysia but you don't wanna be wearing boots all the time now do we?  Or during a hot sunny day, the usual way of comforting the foot would be FLIP FLOPS!  Very comfortable indeed, but you can switch to sneakers and get more protection if you're walking around town!  Perk it up with some accessories of sunglasses or scarf for a refined look and look fashionable effortlessly.

    If you are interested to change up your style with sneakers, check out ZALORA for a Onitsuka Tiger footwear choices.  Price range from RM249 - RM369.

    I'd prolly would wanna get a pair,  need to try on size first hee~  Thanks for reading :)
