Indianapolis Color Analysis Trends: Sneakers are Still Hot!

Hello Sneakers, I Love You!!

This fall, you’ll want to keep your white sneakers in your wardrobe rotation. White sneakers have become a staple for many closets and it’s a trend worth finding room for in your closet this season. White sneakers are trending for good reason: they can be dressed up or down to wear casually with jeans, or dressed up with a skirt or dress and even paired with a suit. Here are a few fun and creative ways to add this trend to your next ensemble, according to an Indianapolis Color Analysis and stylist.

Dress up Your Dresses
Mix it up a little this fall by pairing your next dress with a fun pair of white sneakers. You’ll find that you love the comfort and the style of white sneakers that add to a cute dress. My advice as an Indianapolis Color Analysis expert, you should start with a warm fall-colored dress in a shade like cranberry, mustard, or deep pine. Add a layer like a chunky sweater for warmth. After you add a belt, jewelry, and a touch of makeup, pull on your sneakers to complete your look. I think you’ll enjoy how white sneakers give this outfit just the right finishing touch.

Pants, Please
If you are headed out on errands this weekend or going to brunch with friends, start with this season’s high-waisted, wide-leg pants. If you think sneakers are only for the young, read my blog here about whether there are age-appropriate outfits.

With your pants, try a fitted sweater or a casual blazer in knit, corduroy, or lightweight wool plaid in a fall color/print that complements your coloring. The long silhouette of the pants will give your figure a slimming effect as a bonus. After adding accessories like a minimalistic shoulder bag, slip into your sneakers to finish your look.

Sleek and Suited
It might surprise you that this sneaker trend also works with a suit in the office, but I’ve seen it work in a fun way. You’ll be glad to trade in heels for comfortable footwear on a busy day when you’re on your feet for longer periods of time. Sneakers tone down the formality of a suit in a fun, unexpected way making it a good fall trend to try. This fun twist to your workwear will instantly add a contemporary look to a traditional outfit while maintaining the professional edge you need.

Skirt the Norm
My personal favorite way to style sneakers this fall season is with a midi skirt in a textured fabric like knit or a fun print. I like to pair it with a fitted turtle neck sweater in a coordinating color and build on that with a necklace, bracelet, and cross-body bag. You’ll enjoy this chic, casual, and sporty look that sneakers add to this feminine outfit.

You can also play with this inspiration by trading the fitted sweater for your favorite graphic tee and adding your favorite structured blazer for warmth.
