9 Stylish Ways to Wear Solid White Fashion Sneakers

Greetings and hello Monday! Now that I’ve decided on the sneakers I’m going to keep, I had some requests for a post on various ways to style plain white leather sneakers. Well, that was a fun project!

I read once that you should never buy something if you can’t think of at least three ways to wear it, and I often think it would be good practice to do this with every new item we bring into our closets.

These are all mirror selfies because in case you haven’t heard, we’ve been having a bit of cold spell.

Also, I set out to come up with 5 ways to wear white fashion sneakers, but I ended up with nine! The possibilities are virtually endless, of course, and all of these are pretty simple with solids and neutrals, but that’s the easiest type of outfit to copy.

Also, I’m linking to general categories of clothing in my summary of the outfit formula, and then I linked to exact pieces under each picture when I could.

9 Ways to Wear White Sneakers

#1. with a cashmere pullover & straight cropped blue jeans

Any pullover would work, but I went ahead and threw in “cashmere” because what I like so much about this look is the juxtaposition between the luxe cashmere and the sporty sneakers.

I also had a question recently about how I select the wash of jeans for an outfit. In this case, the sweater is navy, so I chose jeans that are a lighter wash so there is some contrast. Also, the lighter wash is more casual and works better with the sneakers, in my opinion.

#2. with black jeans, grey sweater & denim jacket

Any color sweater would work with this outfit formula, but I like the all neutral vibe with the grey sweater. Plus the black jeans and white sneakers provide a stark contrast, so I like to wear some mid-tones on top to create a bridge between the light and dark.

#3. with an elevated sweatshirt & grey jeans

Any color combination of an elevated sweatshirt and jeans would work, but I thought this white & grey combo was fun and a little different.

#4. with a LBD & a denim jacket

I’ve had this dress hanging on my rolling rack for weeks. Someone asked me to share various ways to style it, and I ordered it, and then totally forgot to do the post. #sosorry

Of course, now it’s sold out in the black and most other colors/sizes too, but I thought it was perfect for this post, so I styled it even though I can’t link it. I did link to the other colors below as well as the sleeveless version, which is perfect for summer.

#5.with black jeans & a long cardigan

I don’t know why I don’t wear more cardigans. I like this look, and I was so cozy with two layers on top! I rarely wear layers; they just feel constricting to me. Or at least they do until I get them on and settled in, and then I’m so cozy and warm, and I’m like, Why don’t I layer more often???

This cardigan also comes in a really pretty pink, a mustard yellow, and a classic black. Size down, though. I’m wearing a small and I wish I had the XS. You may think it looks the right size, but there’s a lot of extra material in the back.

#6. with a grey sweater, taupe moto, & white jeans

This is probably my least favorite of all the looks, but I went ahead and included it.

Taupe and grey isn’t a combination I’d typically think of, but I’ve seen other bloggers combining these colors and wanted to try it. I like the color combo, but this sweater is too short with this jacket. The sweater I linked below would look better.

#7. with joggers & a denim jacket

My denim jacket got quite the workout when I was taking these pictures! I like how the denim jacket elevates the joggers in a way a sweatshirt or plain tee would not.

Unfortunately these joggers are a size too small for me. They really should be a little more relaxed. That said, they are incredibly comfortable, so I keep them and only wear them with longer sweatshirts.

#8. with olive pants & a grey sweater

I love these olive sailor skinny pants from Loft, and they work really well with the white sneakers. A denim jacket would actually look great with this look as well!

You could put a black sweater or an ivory one on top, or even coral or pink, but I like the way the grey blends in and keeps the look all neutral. In this case, I like the shorter sweater length with these pants because it allows the buttons to show, and it creates a pleasing 1/3 to 2/3 overall body proportion.

#9. with blue jeans, a black leather jacket, black sweater, and a grey scarf

I saved my favorite look for last. I’m sure you’re not surprised that it involves a leather jacket and ripped skinny jeans. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

FYI, these Vigoss skinnies are a great alternative to my pricey AGs. I love the mix of luxe cashmere scarf, edgy black leather jacket, rugged ripped jeans, and sporty sneakers. So much good visual tension going on here!

I’m learning that having some juxtaposition in each look is key to making an interesting outfit. Would anyone be interested in a post on that topic???
