Ok ladies let’s be honest, as much as we all love our stilettos and high-heeled booties, white sneakers will always have a special place in our hearts. I mean denim, a plain white t-shirt, a leather jacket and white kicks – really, what more do you need?
This spring white sneakers are taking over again (although to be honest, they’ve never really lost their place in my closet ever since I got my first pair of Superstars in Grade 8). Pair them with denim and leather (pants or skirts), pleated midi skirts, tapered trousers, stretchy leggings, slip dresses for some instant cool girl vibes. Here are my top 5 picks, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
One can't really write about white sneakers without mentioning Adidas' iconic superstars. The Superstar was introduced way, way back in 1969 as a basketball shoe but has since become a bit of a fashion all-star.
