I recently received a pair of white Converse high top sneakers for work and instantly felt like the coolest girl alive. So why haven’t I worn my new kicks yet? Honestly I can’t figure out what to wear with high top sneakers. I know they’re white and sneakers so theoretically they should be easy to style, but it’s the height that’s making it tricky for me to figure out what to pair them with. Luckily, I’m not the only one feeling high tops right now. They’re everywhere at the moment, because honestly, who wants to wear anything but sneakers anymore?
If you’re struggling with what to wear with high top sneakers, you’re not alone. They’re a bit trickier to style than your typical low tops. I find that you need to pair them with skinny jeans or cropped straight leg styles that allow you to see the full sneaker. I also like the look with the baggier ’90s jeans we’re seeing everywhere now. But my favorite way to wear high stop sneakers is paired with a floaty dress, short or long. It looks so cool and less try-hard. I’ve also seen high tops paired with trousers and a blazer, which may be my new look for returning to the office this fall.
I always find that looking to street style is the easiest way to find inspiration for styling a tricky piece in my closet. Luckily, Pinterest is full of answers for what to wear with high top sneakers. I pulled some of my favorite outfits with high top sneakers to help me rock my new Converses. So if you’re looking for ideas for what to wear with high top sneakers, here are some of my favorite ways to style the popular sneakers.
