Top 5 Ways To Wear Sneakers To A Dinner Party


Sneakers are a shoe type you can always count on to be comfortable and stylish with your casual wear. But, what if you really wanted to wear your sneakers to a formal event?! Following these ways to wear sneakers to a dinner party will have you looking dapper and Ferris Bueller-style cool.

1. Pink Blazer

Wear with a blazer and tuxedo pants, but pair with a plain t-shirt instead of a button-down. Wear your sneakers in whichever colorway you choose. If you want to keep it sleek, wear all black, with matching pants, blazer, and a t-shirt. Then, wear solid or color shoes to complete the look. If you want a more striking, feminine look, wear a soft pink suit, with classic tan-color sneakers.

Add retro-style, circle sunglasses, and simple jewelry. If you want to highlight your handbag, wear a clutch or crossbody in a shade that coincides but doesn’t exactly match your suit color.

2. Pleated Skirt

A pleated skirt has an ultra-feminine look, that sways when you walk. Wear your sneakers with a long pleated skirt and formal top. Or, pair with a turtle neck and glam handbag in a neutral color. If you want to create a more urban look, you can wear a sweatshirt that is solid or with gold (or silver) graphics. Make sure your sneakers complement the color of your skirt.

If you want a striking look, wear a metallic color pleated skirt and matching metallic color sneakers. Gym sneakers or canvas sneakers will work with this look since the pleated skirt is the perfect amount of feminine, softness.

3. Tulle

Tulle comes in more than just poofy skirts! Try wearing your sneakers with a well constructed, a-line tulle dress. A black mini dress will pair well with white and black sneakers and clean accessories. You can wear your hair down, to keep your dress and sneakers the focal point. Or, you can wear in a low pony-tail and add statement earrings.

You can wrap a metallic or gem-color belt around your waist, to add a touch of color in red, green or pink. You can also wear hairpins with this look, as well, but be sure to keep them plain, with a neutral hardware tone.

4. Floral Print

Floral print can be worn with any sneaker since the pattern has many colors. Wear a long sleeve, floral print dress in a bright color with white sneakers. Or, wear sneakers to match a color inside of your dress pattern, like green or purple. Pair your floral print dress and sneakers with gold-tone sunglasses and a geometric shape handbag or a tan wallet. You can wear your hair down and flashy hairpins with pearl or rhinestones and gold-tone hardware.

A wrap skirt is formal for a dinner party, and when worn with sneakers will give you a cool-girl vibe. Pair your sneakers with a long, black wrap skirt and matching black t-shirt. Or, wear a black tank top, with a matching leather handbag. Wear your hair in a bun and add stacked bracelets, if you’re wearing a camisole top. You can wear a large ring with a stone, or you can wear a watch in silver-tone, or gold-tone.
