Yes, you’ll be able to wear your sneakers outside of the gymnasium, however there are rules! Okay, okay, I know some are eager to say that it’s just fine to mix the two, your gym shoes and your non-gym sneaks, but really … unless you are during a pinch, there are better selections to create than to wear your smelly running shoes to dinner. When not attempting to sweat, take it up a notch with tried-and-true brands (think Nike, New Balance, Converse), since the retro sneaker look is HUGE. And consider some slip-on sneaks, as these may just be your go-to shoe that puts some spring in your step.
Sporting a one-and-done piece like a dress is already simple enough, but the addition of a pair of sneakers will have you giving off that enviable cool-girl vibe in one easy step.
