After I wrote about my orange sneakers (that I bought for $8 in the kids department at Target) I received an email from one of my clients saying,
“Hi Meaghan, I love your new orange sneakers, they’re a great color, but I have no idea how I’d wear them. Do you think I could…or do you think I’m too old for them?”
It occurred to me, after I read my clients email, that if she was thinking that, then others might be too. So I thought I’d show you a few ways I’ve worn them.
In the photo above I’ve teamed them with a River Island sequined top. On sale at ASOS here. And a very old pair of grey skinny chinos I bought in Paris.
The photo’s not fabulous but it’s attempting to show you that I wore them with Country Road zip ankle jeans, a navy (several seasons old) Topshop shrunken blazer (that I bought with brown buttons & swapped to gold) and an Emerson for Big W navy t-shirt.
I hope that gives you some ideas for wearing a pair of bright casual sneakers. Want more outfit ideas follow my Pinterest boards here
I’d love to know – did anyone go and buy the orange sneakers after they read about them on my blog or were you like my lovely client and worried about how you’d wear them (or if they were age appropriate)?
…& F.Y.I. if you wear them in your own way, adapt them to your personal style and you feel great while you’re wearing them, I don’t think you’re ever too old for colored sneakers.
