Not-so-groundbreaking fall outfit idea: revolve your look around a pair of sneakers. Especially right now, I know that's pretty much all you're focused on doing. But our mission here is to reinvigorate your sneaker style with some interesting combinations you might never think of. That's because some of the street style ahead — be it a moment in a colorful maxi dress or a pair of silk printed polka-dot pants — can also be completed with slippers or slides. Maybe you'd normally work these closet staples with fancier footwear, but we think you'll appreciate the casual twist that comes when you switch it up. Not to mention the fact that choosing sneakers in the fall makes getting around easier and way more comfortable.

We've also suggested some of my favorite new-release sneakers that fit the bill when it comes to putting together these looks, some of which are '70s-inspired and timeless, and others that incorporate new trends we're seeing on Instagram, like the tennis skirt. Ahead, brush up on some of the latest sneaker styling we've been adding to our mood board, decide which ensemble is right for you, and do some shopping while you're at it — because you can never have too many pairs of sneakers.

Style your Chucks with printed silk pants and a long-sleeved tee.

Play up the color scheme of your shoes with bright socks, and coordinate with cropped jeans so the shoes are on full display.

Wear a wide-leg pant with a fuzzy cardigan to give off '70s vibes.

Match a sophisticated shorts suit with a grandpa-style tennis shoe for a look that's sleek and clean.

Embark on the tennis-skirt fashion trend in crisp white platform sneakers with ankle socks peeking out, plus your coziest knit.

Wear neutral sneakers with fall-friendly hues and a denim skirt — another '70s moment we can definitely get behind, especially when complete with a colorblock turtleneck.

Go for a monochrome look in a full printed suit set, and add a contrasting pop of color with a statement earring.

Choose your brightest long-sleeved maxi dress, and play it up with your most vibrant sport sneakers that could easily transition out of the gym.

Wear a cropped straight-leg jean with your low-tops, plus a hoodie and a longer checked fall coat.
