9 Celebrities Who Made Sneakers Look Glamorous
Toss away your heels ladies! A classic pair of sneakers have become a street style staple according to the most fashion forward starlets! It seems the days of celebs strutting the streets of Hollywood in sky high stilettos are long gone and fashion icons everywhere have instead opted for a fresh pair of kicks to glide down city streets. As difficult as it may initially seem to make a pair of plain sneakers look glamorous, the fashion icons of Hollywood have proven to do so and have introduced us to the chicest outfits featuring sneakers we’ve ever seen. Follow along for 9 times celebrities made sneakers appear glamorous:
9. Doutzen Kroes
Many of the Victoria Secret models, Doutzen Kroes included, have made a name for themselves off the model runway and in the street style fashion category. They arguably even initiated the street style craze by showcasing casual “model off duty” looks that were laid back but still glamorous. Doutzen pairs a pair of crisp kicks with tan trousers, a red sweater and a quilted black bomber. She looks super comfortable yet chic enough to be strutting the streets of high-fashion Paris.
Zendaya is known for taking risks when it comes to fashion and her looks have landed her on a large number of best-dressed lists, considering her young age and how short a time she’s appeared in Hollywood. Zendaya’s look is the epitome of street style with her shredded black boyfriend jeans and white printed graphic tee. Her old school Vans top the look off effortlessly and Zendaya once again proves why she has been noted as an up and coming fashionista with her achievable and cool street style look.
7. Blake Lively
Blake Lively isn’t ashamed to switch out a pair of pumps for a sneaker every once in a while, especially during pregnancy! The star flaunted a pair of classic white converse sneakers with a floral maxi dress, which may seem atypical upon first glance but with long legs like Lively’s it totally works! The star even referenced her unexpected shoe choice in her caption by writing, “Milkshake: check. Comfortable shoes: check. Having a slit in your dress to make you feel better about the aforementioned: check.”
6. Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner is a street style queen and has proven countless times that she can make even the most outrageous pieces look fabulous. When it comes to this pinstripe suit, Jenner flaunted masculine-inspired pieces and a simple white tennis shoe to top it off. She slicked her hair back in a polished updo and confidently strut her outfit through the streets of New York proving that it doesn’t always take a sky high stiletto to turn heads.
5. Jojo Fletcher
The Bachelorette star Jojo Fletcher is known for always keeping up with the latest fashion trends and these glamorous metallic gold kicks are no exception! Her simple white tee and shorts combo might be otherwise quite plain without the metallic pop of colour and we love that Jojo added an unexpected girly twist onto a typical slide-on tennis shoe.
4. Olivia Culpo
Miss Universe winner Olivia Culpo has proven time and time again that she is not only the queen of beauty, but also the queen of fashion! This gorgeous celebrity loves to share her recent outfits on social media and has been spotted wearing a few interesting sneakers as well. Culpo pulls off the sneaker look in a super fashion-forward way by topping her cherry-inspired outfit off with a pair of crisp sneakers with red detailing along the sides.
3. Karlie Kloss
Based on the awe-struck man in the background of this photo, Karlie Kloss most definitely can still turn heads even when she’s not wearing leg-enhancing heels! This Victoria Secret model rocked classic white sneakers unconventionally with a metallic, sparkly skirt. We love how adding a sneaker instantly transforms this look from a formal dress into a casual street-apropriate look. It ups the cool factor and drops the fancy factor, which is definitely a street style win in our books!
2. Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid’s iconic sporty chic fashion sense has often won her the label “queen of celebrity street style.” She knows the importance of a quality sneaker and isn’t ashamed to put her needle-thin stilettos aside to allow a crisp tennis shoe to top off her look. With this look, she actually allows the sneakers to be the star of the show by featuring a cherry red running shoe that plays perfectly off the details of her graphic tee and cat-eye shades. With phenomenal legs like that, we’d never wear heels either Gigi!
1. Olivia Palermo
We’re not surprised to see that Olivia Palermo pulled off the sneaker trend in the most fashionable way possible. The star rocked a simple pair of white sneakers with a turquoise and black leopard print design running along the side to top off her spring dress. The entire look is worthy of the cover of Vogue and Palermo once again proved why her name and persona has become the fashion icon it is today.
