I don’t know about you, but I have slowly but surely been getting into the whole ‘Dad Sneaker’ / ‘Chunky Sneaker’ trend. At first I thought eh not my style but with every trend I try to see if I can put my own spin on it where I can ‘make it work’ to give it a fair shot + after styling some cute pairs (not so ‘chunky’ haha) with my favorite jeans or leather leggings, I am now ALL IN on the ‘Dad Sneaker’ trend.
I rounded up some of my favorites from various retailers at various price points so you can get in on this shoe trend without breaking the bank!
I finally gave in…I am embracing the chunky ‘Dad Sneaker’ trend. I was resisting for a couple of months because being a total girly girl I truly felt I wasn’t edgy or cool enough to pull off this hot new trend. I mean the ‘Dad Sneaker‘ looks great on my actual dad haha :p but could lil ole Missy pull it off? Well, I don’t know about you but I think Y E S!
While I am far from ‘cool, calm + collected‘ haha in this outfit I am actually feeling like I am…Who knew a pair of new sneakers can totally change how you feel + view yourself. The ‘Dad Sneaker‘ trend has definitely influenced my style, it has made me want to stray away from 24/7 heels + embrace being comfortable but in a fashion forward way.
I wanted the sneakers to take center stage so I paired them with a cozy yet stylish look.
I am OBSESSED with these faux leather leggings. They match with everything, are great to transition from day to night, keep ya warm on chilly days AND look sexy AF if you ask me (they are my go to for winter date nights).
I paired them with an oversized turtleneck sweater (another big fashion moment for me considering I typically hate turtlenecks but I am slowly beginning to embrace them hehe :p) I found it at Femme Luxe Finery (my new go to for all of my basic pieces because of their amazing selection + price point)!
Now for the sneakers…I am linking to a few of my favorites that are under $200 below – they are easy to style with jeans or leggings + they are definitely a trend worth buying into (comfy + stylish, how can you go wrong? :p)
My bag is another staple definitely worth investing in, you can never go wrong with a classic Chanel…
Are you ready to give the ‘Dad Sneaker’ trend a try?
