So you bought a pair of sneakers for Spring, and now it's nearly Summer and you have yet to break them out of their shoebox.  Sound familiar?  You're not alone.

Treat them as you would your suede booties or a ballet flat. They basically go with anything.  To make it easier, we've put together some inspiration to get you into those sneakers.  

Joie Shai Dress, Vince Cap Sleeve Block Print Dress, Theory Privina Dress, Rag & Bone Jade Dress, Theory Seblyn D Top and Holeen G Skirt

Don't limit yourself to cotton and t-shirt dresses, tennis shoes can be paired with luxe fabrics and long hemlines.  It will instantly add some street cred to any dress, and adding a denim jacket won't hurt either. 

1. Rag & Bone Hollins Tank and Dre Jeans, J Brand Fatigue Vest.
2. Vince Tank with Inserts, Theory Stripe Skirt, Current/Elliott Oversized Jean Jacket
3. Rag & Bone Linen Tee, Vince Fold Over Waistband Pants

Sneakers aren't just for denim -pair them with slacks, chinos or knit pants and skirts - they are easy to throw on and so so comfortable.  If tennies are outside your comfort zone, stick to styles and silhouettes that are simple and sleek.

No more excuses! Time to slip on those sneaks!
