I bought my first pair of Converse All-Stars back in eighth grade, and they've been a part of my wardrobe ever since. I usually reserve them for concerts, festivals, theme parks, or other activities where I'll be on my feet all day. However, now that sneakers have become summer's "it" shoe, I decided to start incorporating my trusty Chucks into my everyday looks.
These sneaks are ultra-comfy and have a classic appeal, which makes them much more versatile than you might think! Whether you're a Converse devotee or are thinking about buying your first pair, here are four chic ways to wear Chuck Taylors for summer:
1. Crochet Shorts + Sleeveless Blouse
For a sweet and summery look with a boho flair, tuck a lightweight sleeveless blouse into white crochet shorts. Add a cheery pop of color with coral-hued Converse, then accessorize with several mix-and-match bangles. Lastly, grab a straw hat to shield your eyes from the sun.
2. Romper + Denim Jacket
Go the trendy yet casual route by wearing an on-trend daisy print romper and a light-wash denim jacket. (If you aren't so big on rompers, a sundress would look equally as cute!) Mint green Chucks keep things fashionable, as do these round sunglasses. Accessorize with silver midi rings, then complete the look by painting your nails a sunny shade of yellow.
3. Boyfriend Jeans + Blazer
Create an effortlessly cool and causal getup by pairing boyfriend jeans with a laid-back muscle tee. Opt for a pair of timeless white Converse low-tops, then add some polish with a blush pink blazer. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a delicate gold necklace.
4. Skort + Graphic Tee
This final ensemble has an edgy vibe, and we can see it working for a low-key night out. Start with an ultra-trendy skirt, a fun graphic tee, and hi-top All-Stars. This pair is actually leather, which makes for a unique look, but any black Chucks would work. Finish by accessorizing with dramatic chandelier earrings and a swipe of fuchsia lipgloss.
