Sneakers are trusty wardrobe staples for those of us who are always on the run from one thing to the next.  Styling them without looking frumpy can be tricky, however.  You want to create an effortlessly casual, cool, and chic look. Here are some looks worth stealing this summer. 

Look 1 - Sporty-casual (athleisure) 


This look is perfect for those of us with a natural, comfortable style personality. Create a refined look by tucking in your top, adding a jacket over the shoulders (or tied around the waist) and don't forget to wear accessories. Casual does not mean sloppy and putting a little effort into your hair goes a long way - even if it's a messy bun!

These classic white velcro sneakers will compliment this look very well:

Look 2 - Casual-chic


This style is ideal for those of us with a more classic, elegant style personality. Think of Princess Catherine's casual outfits - very classy! Pull off this look by adding a blazer, a button-down shirt, high-end accessories, and a polished hairstyle.

These sneakers with the touch of leopard print are perfect for this look:

Look 3 - Girly-casual


This is probably my favourite! There is nothing like a gorgeous summer dress or feminine skirt with a pair of sneakers. Wear this look with feminine accessories and lipgloss for an effortless romantic style. 

I particularly love these sneakers by Holster for a softer, more feminine touch:
