FASHION TIP: The “Dad sneaker”

Shoes: They are ugly, that is for sure but again, we have seen uglier things become trends and that is what’s going on with these sneakers.

There have been numerous name tags for this famous sneaker trend. The Chunky sole sneaker, dad sneaker, ugly sneaker — whatever you prefer to call this stepper, it does not take away the fact that it is possibly the hottest sneaker of 2019.

With a variety of brands and shades on hand to choose from, there is no denying that this will soon be a wardrobe staple. And with just a few styling tricks, you will be slaying these streets with the dad sneaker.

The nature of this sneakers’ soles makes it a fashion statement, meaning whatever other items you are adding to it should be equally stylish, but not too loud to block the statement kicks out.

For a feminine version of this look, you could choose your sneaker in a warm shade such as white, brown or even pink.

You could add your tights to this, and complete the look with an over sized shirt. A crop top and boyfriend jeans are also a good combo to wear your dad sneakerswith.

If you need something outside pants, then you could replace the jeans with a mini denim skirt, and add an off-shoulder top, for the perfect look. A maxi dress, detailed with double splits and well fitted denim jacket is also another look you could try out.

For the guys, denims are your only choice here when it comes to the bottoms. I have seen a few looks where this stylish sneaker was worn over a pair of shorts or even chino pants. But I still believe denims are your nest choice for this sneaker trend.

Layer this with a tee and sweat shirt for a great finish. It would be preferable that you keep the hem of your pants cropped or worn a few inches off your sneaker top, so that you are able to show off those fashionable shoes.

Purchase points will vary depending on where you shop from, with both uptown and downtown offering a number of shopping points to choose from. You could also order for a pair online, especially if you do not want to end up with a knock off.
