A Sharp-Dressed Woman: 5 Ways to Style Suits With Sneakers

We’ll be the first to say it: Suiting up is hard. While some people find it liberating to pull on a pair of slacks and shrug a sport coat over their shoulders, others find that suits can be fussy and unfun. They’re kind of technical and often need to be tailored; where’s the joy in that? But one of the easiest ways to spice up your suited life is to pair one with sneakers. Instead of hitting up the office in a two-piece, strut your stuff on the streets in a slouchy, cropped, oversized, or exuberantly hued suit and a pair of kicks that tell the world “I look good and I know it.” Here are five ways to show it.

1. Short and Sweet

A cropped, high-waisted suit pant lets a pair of cool kicks shine. The red swoosh picks up the color of the suiting, as well as the lettering on the relaxed tee. Add a sense of drama with a quilted, chain-strap bag and you’re good to go!

2. Check Mate

A checked black and white suit is graphic gold. Offset all that visual stimulation with a pair of solidly hued Chucks—high top, preferably for a stronger color punch—and you’ve got yourself a power suit that pops.

3. Neutral Ground

Subtlety can be a beautiful thing. Take, for instance, this casually chic ensemble grounded by a pair of classic high-tops in cream. The grey windowpane suiting with a cropped tee and felted bucket hat (in a matchy-matchy hue) screams babe in the boardroom.

4. A Suitable Match

This cherry-red outfit could easily be intimidating—monochromatic AND a turtleneck? We’re not worthy! But pairing those suiting elements with a sporty sneaker (and a righteous pair of geometric earrings) makes this whole look that much more approachable.

5. Double the Fun

A double-breasted suit could feel fussy and formal, but a cropped pant and effortless low-top Chucks make the whole thing sing. Another bonus? That gorgeous rusty hue! A fresh, nontraditional color on a suit automatically shakes things up.
