How to Style White Sneakers for Summer

June 28, 2021

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn by yours truly.

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it. Not only do they provide the comfort of walking on clouds, but I love the way a crisp white shoe pulls an outfit together effortlessly. We’re saying sayonara to the days of sky high heels and flatter than flat sandals [okay okay, I’ll admit it – I’m still wearing those too occasionally], the white sneakers are here to stay. And today, we’re sharing some inspiration when it comes to styling said sneaks- with a little help from Nordstrom, that is.

As most of you may know, Nordstrom is near and dear to my heart. Here’s why! Nordstrom is a one stop shop for getting dressed from head to toe [or in this case, head to sneaker]. With free shipping and free returns, options to buy online and pickup in-store, and customer service that is unmatched, shopping online is better than ever! You better believe I’m a frequent Nordstrom shopper, so being a part of the Nordy Club gives me plenty of chances to earn Notes for future shopping trips, free alterations, early access to shopping events, and so much more! Now, without ado, here are four ways to style white sneakers this Summer.

Day Date Ready

Low Top Sneaker // Double Scoop Tank // Skater Skirt // Similar Jacket

If you’ve been following along somewhat closely, you’ll know I’ve never considered myself a huge skirt gal. But that all changed when I met this little number! She’s fun, she’s flirty, and she look ahh-dorable paired with white sneaks. So if you’re looking for an easy way to shake up a classic date outfit, consider styling your next dress or skirt look with a pair of tennies! And yes, I’m fully aware of how ridiculous that sounds. Take a leap of faith with me on this one, friends! Your feet will thank you.

On the Go

Linen Pants // Double Scoop Tank // Low Top Sneaker

There’s one thing you should know about me: I’m a sucker for comfort. Whether you’re back to traveling this Summer or spending the season in your own backyard, dressing for comfort doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style. Linen Pants will keep you cool all Summer long, while your trusty sneakers ensure comfort wherever you’re headed.

Out & About

Tie Dye Hoodie // Boyfriend Shorts // Low Top Sneaker

Next up is an easy, everyday outfit. From running errands to hanging out around the house, I’m a firm believer that getting dressed goes a long way. If you look good, you feel good, am I right? I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to getting dressed, so a versatile pair of sneakers is a wardrobe staple in my book. If they can go from work to play to date night and every grocery store pit-stop in between, I’m sold.

Wear Anywhere

Tie Sleeve Top // Crop Slim Jeans [size down if in between] // Low Top Sneaker

Last, but certainly not least, is a wear anywhere look. For a casual work day that turns into dinner – you name it, your sneaks are up for it. And there you have it, friends! Four easy-peasy ways to style white sneakers this Summer. Dare I say the most versatile footwear of the season? It’s safe to say this is one bandwagon I’m not hopping off of.
