On Trend: Chunky Sneakers

Whether you call them “dad” sneakers or chunky sneakers, they’re BIG right now with everyone from celebrities like the Hadids, to Fashion Influencers, to actual real-life people!

I have to admit, when they first appeared on runways, I wasn’t super into them, but now that they are popping up literally everywhere, I’ve found myself looking at them more seriously. After all, this is one of those statement-making fashion trends that is super wearable and super comfortable.

Not sure what to wear them with? Pair with everything from wide-legged cropped denim to trousers to skirts – just don’t pair them with your skinny jeans. You can also wear them with chunky athletic socks – especially when pairing them with a dress or a skirt.

While white is the easiest to wear, you can find chunky sneakers in a wide variety of colours and patterns from pastels to neons and from florals to animal prints.

Here are some of my favourites, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
