Toss your chunky boots and winter galoshes to the back of your closet; it’s time for some spring kicks cleaning. Thankfully for us, one of spring’s biggest shoe trends is a tried-and-true classic: le sneaker. Whether you have quite a few pairs you’re ready to dust off or are in the market to score a fresh new set, it matters not. Nope, the only thing that ~does~ matter is knowing how to wear spring sneakers like a street style champ.
There’s plenty of ways to work these versatile (not to mention super comfy) kicks. Lucky us, a few of our favorite sartorially-inclined celebs have already done all the work for us, showing off how to wear sneakers in a slew of different spring outfit types.
Curious how to work sneakers into your wardrobe repertoire this season? Then sit back, scroll on down and make not of your favorite looks!
1Street Style Star
She’s no average street style star, and this is no average outfit. Dress up your sneakers into a sophisticated look by pairing them with a pretty striped dress and leather jacket pairing. The key to making this combo work is making sure the sneakers’ color complements the rest of the looks.
Khloé Kardashian has long since been a fitness trendsetter (have you watched Revenge Body yet?!), and that includes setting the tone for athleisure looks, too. Keeping to a black and white color palette, she turns a simple look into a score by matching her sneakers to her striped leggings, long undershirt and black cropped zip-up jacket.
The bookish beauty kicks her chucks up a notch by coordinating them with a floral mini dress and a denim jacket.
Modeling army green platforms from her smash-hit Fenty X Puma line, Rihanna ups the ante for her sneakers with a double denim ensemble topped off with a satin quilted jacket. And that trendy scarf and baseball cap pairing? Tres chic, RiRi!
5Off-duty model style
Surprise, surprise: Gigi Hadid is a ~master~ of off-duty model style, and this look is further proof of that. We love how she rocks a funky pair tangerine sneakers by wearing them with a cool fuzzy jacket with the same shade (and sunnies!). And with the pale blue-grays in this look, she creates a contrasting, complimentary palette that makes for a truly compelling ensemble.
Lucy Boynton perfectly demonstrates how to give your sneakers the prim-and-proper treatment. Just pair them with a ladylike skirt and jacket, and slip on a pair of pretty tights. For a touch of edge, do as Lucy does and wear a graphic t-shirt underneath.
