Not-so-groundbreaking fall outfit idea: revolve your look around a pair of sneakers. Especially right now, I know that's pretty much all you're focused on doing. But our mission here is to reinvigorate your sneaker style with some interesting combinations you might never think of. That's because some of the street style ahead — be it a moment in a colorful maxi dress or a pair of silk printed polka-dot pants — can also be completed with slippers or slides. Maybe you'd normally work these closet staples with fancier footwear, but we think you'll appreciate the casual twist that comes when you switch it up. Not to mention the fact that choosing sneakers in the fall makes getting around easier and way more comfortable.
We've also suggested some of my favorite new-release sneakers that fit the bill when it comes to putting together these looks, some of which are '70s-inspired and timeless, and others that incorporate new trends we're seeing on Instagram, like the tennis skirt. Ahead, brush up on some of the latest sneaker styling we've been adding to our mood board, decide which ensemble is right for you, and do some shopping while you're at it — because you can never have too many pairs of sneakers.
