When I looked in the mirror the day I wore this outfit, I instantly thought business on top and party on the bottom. As someone who’s constantly on the go- shooting looks, in and out of meetings during the day and spending evenings with an active toddler, being able to dress for whatever the day brings is a necessity, so you can imagine how excited I am that sneakers are the official it shoe of Fall 2016.
Gone are the days of heels being the only fashionable option- this season is all about the wear-with-everything fashion sneaker. DSW always has a great selection of options for women like me, who want a shoe closet consisting of fancy, casual and everything in between, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pair of sneakers from their Fall trends collection.
Even when I dress on the casual side, I keep it sophisticated and polished, but practical, so I chose the classic black Puma– a perfect balance of athleisure meets streamlined elegance. These sneakers, along with classic Converse, Adidas, Nike’s and this retro-inspired design from New Balance literally go with everything from a simple sundress during warmer months to leggings and a tunic sweater in colder climates, but most importantly, they look amazing with my go-to tailored blazer and skinny jeans.
