If there's one item that I've had in my closet for as long as I can remember, it's white sneakers. While styles of shoes may fluctuate, there will always be a classic white sneaker donned by fashion girls at any given time. Brands always have a range of them in all kinds of shapes and textures, and there will always be a spot for them in your wardrobe—at least that's the case for me. However, with any closet staple, it can get tricky to make items feel fresh, especially when you've had them for so long. To fulfill your outfit-inspiration needs, we found the coolest ways the style set is incorporating the classic into their outfits.
Below, you'll find seven outfits that'll make you want to pair your white sneakers with something other than a T-shirt and leggings (because I may have been doing that a little too much lately). Remember: They're so versatile you can pretty much wear them with anything, so the sky's the limit here. And lastly, we shopped out some of our favorites on the market just in case you're in need of an upgrade after wearing down your last pair.
Want to make your sneakers stand out? Start off with a basic ensemble, but layer over a colorful coat or blazer.
