If there was one shoe that reigned supreme last year it was undoubtedly the white sneaker.
But since they’re still adorning the feet of every celebrity and it-girl from Instagram to the streets, New York to Australia, it would seem these fresh kicks aren’t going out of fashion anytime soon.
Perfect for dressing up or down an outfit (yes, there is difference between a smart and casual sneaker!), this faithful footwear is a wardrobe essential.
We’ve been style stalking and found five of the most on-trend looks to team with your kicks.
5 trending styles for white sneakers
1. Classic blue denim
Just about any white sneaker looks good with classic, vintage-wash denim. The old and faithful boyfriend jean seems to be a popular choice but they’ll work just as well with your skin-tights too. Finish the look with a plain white t-shirt or shirt and don’t be surprised if you’re mistaken for a Calvin Klein model.
2. Head to toe B&W
Black pants, black jacket and a white top is always a winning combination for white sneakers but any head-to-toe black and white outfit is a safe bet. It’s smart and sophisticated on top and casual on the bottom – perfect as work or weekend attire.
3. T-shirt dress
Show off your pins with a mini skirt or short dress. No matter the style, fresh white kicks will team well. We’re particularly fond of dressing up a t-shirt dress with bold white sneakers like Jules Sarinana and Bianca Cheah, shown here sporting the Nike Tech Fleece dress and Adidas Stan Smiths.

Leather pants with white sneakers is the epitome of sporty-chic. Throw on a casual t-shirt or smart jacket to suit the occasion and you really can’t go wrong.
5. Stylish comfort
There’s a fine line between your at-home sweatpants and fashionable tracksuit these days and a pair of fresh white sneakers will certainly help you toe it. With some on your feet, even your most slouchy slacks will look stylish. Go for fully fledged comfort with a jumper on top or pair it with a tailored jacket for ‘business meets leisure.’
