My New Favorite Sneakers + How To Style

Happy Monday, friends! It’s a new week, and depending on where you live, some of you are able to get out and about a bit. I’m curious to hear if you do, what things are like and what kind of modifications are taking place to keep everyone safe.

Today I’ve got an outfit I put together to feature these Saturday sneakers with leopard calf hair detail from J.Crew.

I shared these in last week’s Try-On Haul, but in case you missed that, I love these because they have the look of a classic Stan Smith, but the leopard calf hair trim and contrasting black laces really take them up a notch.

They do come with white laces too, if you prefer! Plus, they’re leather inside and out, so they look and feel far more luxe than Adidas.

Isn’t this leopard print tab at the heel so fun?

It looks like they’re backordered again at J.Crew, but I promise, they’re worth the wait! I ordered mine in February, and they came in April, and I was so glad I held out.

There are also a few sizes on sale at Nordstrom Rack, but they’ve been selling quickly.

I ordered the 8 and the 8.5, and the 8 fit perfectly, so they’re true to size, or size down if in between.

If you like the leopard and black laces on a white sneaker and don’t want to wait, Evereve has a pair of P448 sneakers that I’m seriously crushing on, but they’re on the spendier side.

I’m sure some of you will mention the J.Crew bankruptcy situation. It’s a shame, but no surprise that retailers are struggling right now.

According to The Times, J. Crew will continue its e-commerce operation throughout its bankruptcy case, and it plans to reopen its J. Crew and Madewell stores once lockdowns are lifted. All that to say, I wouldn’t worry about orders not being fulfilled or anything like that.

I’ve already worn these sneakers with joggers and a hoodie for an elevated athleisure look

For this post, I wanted to style them into the kind of casual but edgy outfit I like to wear when I’m out and about.

My denim jacket is older, so no longer linkable, but Everlane tee and AG Farrah jeans are current; and there may be a couple of this belt left in SM/MD, but I needed the large size.

I’m super excited to tell you that this necklace just came back in stock! A lot of you ask about it when I wear it.

I love how the hammered silver jazzes up a casual look without being fussy, and it’s adjustable so you can get just the right length.

Lucky Brand does a great job with jewelry for my more casual outfits; here’s another one that would also work great with this look.

You know how much I love these jeans, and they’re still 25% off at Shopbop. I cut a half-inch or so off the bottom to get the length I wanted. I like to show a bit of ankle when I’m wearing jeans with sneakers — it’s slimming, and it looks cleaner.

This tee makes a great layering piece. It’s on the thinner side when worn alone, but I don’t feel the need to wear a cami under it. It has that laid-back vibe like you’re wearing your boyfriend’s t-shirt, and it’s made of a smooth, soft cotton and has a nice drape.

For now, since I don’t really have the need for a leather jacket, I may throw a cardigan on with this outfit, or just wear it without the jacket since it’s finally warming up here!
