We Can't Stop Wearing Dresses and Sneakers — Here Are 15 Cool Looks to Try Now
We love when style and comfort collide, and that's why we are so drawn to sneakers and dresses. Personally, I'm just not ready for heels yet, and sneakers just strike the perfect balance between casual and cool. You can basically pair any dress in your closet with the right sneaker if you have a few formulas down. It allows for some playfulness and self-expression in your look, because there are endless colors and combinations. We rounded up our favorite looks and broke down exactly why each one works. Read ahead to find your new go-to combo.
