I kinda love this trend: Dresses and Sneakers

What’s the hottest trend going on for teen clothing this season? Dresses with sneakers! We have been seeing this trend everywhere from runway to street style and it’s the best thing since Keds in the late 80s. Last year, the biggest trend for teens was Levi’s shorts and Adidas old school sneaks. And while we still love the classic cut off denim short, girls are opting to wear a cute mini dress or skirt for an updated Spring wardrobe edit.


We have seen so many dress and sneaker style inspirations on Pinterest from teens and women everywhere, and in every style and brand. We have seen dresses from top label designers like Stella McCartney and Moschino to Topshop, Forever21 and American Eagle. With a trend like this, we had to include it in our what’s hot for teens Spring fashion trends!

Get this look

Dresses are perfect just the way they are but adding the sneakers really let you take a simple day dress and go from work to play. I have seen this most often in New York, where women and college students transform a dress for class or the office into a casual outfit just by switching shoes. Not to mention, wearing comfy sneakers in New York is pretty essential with all the walking you may be doing.

I really love the look and fit of knit pencil skirts paired with a cute tee and Adidas sneakers -and the leather moto jacket? Super chic!


A simple mini dress like this can be a real head turner!

To get this look you’ll want to try different styles to get the best combo. Not every sneaker will pair well with every dress, so play around with the look and find one that works for you. We have found the best dresses + sneaks combo are the more casual cotton or rayon styles with a simple print or solid color, paired with white or black sneakers. Try Converse, they go with almost anything – and you can go for the old skool style, chuck taylor hi-top or low-tops.


The best places to shop for this look if you’re a budget fashionistas is Forever21, Mango and H&M. You can find something within your budget at TopShop, but while the styles are almost always on point, the prices can be hit or miss.
