Fashion & Style

Although it’s not quite sandal weather here, it’s warm enough to start showing our ankles in Minnesota. That means it is time to dust off the ole shoe collection and start having a little more fun with accessories. While the shoe trends for this season have something for everyone, from block heels to loafers to ballet flats, let’s start with sneakers. They’re the perfect transitional shoe that’s versatile enough to go from early spring to summer. Designer renditions and classics alike, we’ve looked to the coolest girls on the Street Style block to up our sneaker game in 2016. No workout leggings or joggers in sight here. Take notes on how the ladies below freshen up their sporty kicks.

I am definitely all about sneaker style now. It took me a little while to catch on because I always felt like walking around in sneakers reminded me too much of high school gym class. My husband actually convinced me that they looked good on me. So now I’m hooked!
