Slip-on sneakers have always been an ultra-comfy alternative to flats, but now that designers have been releasing their own super-chic (albeit ridiculously pricey) versions, they’ve become a bonafide trend.

Whether you’re looking to add a pair of slip-ons to your spring wardrobe or want some fresh ideas for how to style the ones that are already in your closet, this post is for you. Below, I’ll share four cute ways to wear slip-on sneakers for spring. Scroll down to see the outfits:

1. Keeping it Casual

For a casual yet stylish everyday look, wear a pair of nautical-inspired slip-ons with high-waisted shorts and a lacy blouse. Grab a trendy fringe cross-body bag, then accessorize with a colorful statement necklace. This ensemble would be ideal for class, running errands, or any other low-key setting.

2. Laid-Back Yet Girly

Slip-on sneakers instantly dress down any ensemble, and the outfit above is no exception. Start by paring pointy-toe slip-ons with a polka dot dress and white cardigan. A printed handbag adds interest, while mixed metal rings continue the sweet and girly vibe. Lastly, brighten up the ensemble by painting your nails a bold shade of coral.

3. Chic & Sophisticated

Slip on sneakers, gray tee, white trousers, denim jacket
Product Info: Tee- Uniqlo, Pants- Old Navy, Jacket- JCPenney, Earrings- J. Crew, Bag- Sole Society, Shoes- ASOS

This outfit is polished and put-together, but the slip-on sneakers keep things fresh and on-trend. White trousers, a gray tee, and denim jacket are a classic pairing that’s amped up by these floral slip-ons. A studded, mint-hued bag adds a contrasting pop of color, while gem earrings give the look some sparkle.

4. Trendy & Fun

Slip on sneakers, floral skort, cropped tank, varsity jacket
Product Info: Top- Victoria’s Secret- Jacket- Aeropostale, Skort- Boohoo, Earrings- Kate Spade, Clutch- LOFT, Shoes- Forever 21

I love the idea of wearing slip-on sneakers during a night out. Not only are they super-comfortable, but they also give any look a cool, downtown-chic vibe. Here, perforated black slip-ons are paired with a colorful floral skort and cropped tank. A varsity jacket adds a trendy touch and provides some extra coverage, while a chevron clutch adds a graphic pop. Lastly, adorn your ears with these adorable heart-shaped studs.

    Love the girly slip-ons with flowers on them!
    Just feel like you need really skinny ankles to pull them off elegantly…
    So that’s another trend I won’t be following!

    I second the request for Converse. I have classic black Converse and I would like to know how to style them. I like outfits 1 and 2 the best. That ethnic necklace and bag are so cute! The 1st outfit has a preppy boho vibe and I love the girliness of the second outfit. The 3rd outfit is also cute.

    The grey and dark blue ones (slip on) are classy. Try them – you like it.
