Chuck Taylor Shoes: How to Style

Chuck Taylor shoes by Converse are functional for the summertime and fall; whether worn without socks in the summertime or accessorized with funky ‘knee highs’ in the fall, this worldwide favourite is a multi functional gem! As we transition from summer to fall [OH WAIT IT’S FALL], I thought it would be fitting to present my lovely readers with ideas on how to make the transition a smooth one in a series of posts. Chucks are a great way to make that transition below your knees. Whether you’re a high top kind of girl or a low top lover like me, I want to introduce my three favourite ways to style this classic shoe. Check out the looks below and let me know how you like to style yours as well. If you are not a Chuck Taylor wearer let me know how you like to style your choice of canvas sneaker!

1. Chuck Taylor Sneakers with jeans – 

The most conventional way to rock your Chuck Taylor low tops are with jeans of course! I chose to pair my sneakers with a colored denim to add something extra! More structure can be added to a Chucks and jeans look by adding a blazer. It all depends on the look you are trying to accomplish. Play around with your Chucks, try on outfits, and find looks that work for you!

2. Chuck Taylor sneakers with a Skirt – 

Who says you can’t rock sneakers with a skirt! Certainly not I ! This is probably my favourite way to style low top Chuck Taylor shoes. I love the sporty feel wearing Chucks with a skirt provides. If you’re looking for a less Obvious way to style your ‘sneaks’, I’d start here! The fun part in wearing Chuck Taylors with a skirt is that it can be done in so many ways. Whether you’re wearing a formal blouse and skirt with an abundance of accessories, or wearing a leather skirt and t-shirt like myself; It works! Personally, I prefer the less informal approach to wearing chucks and a skirt! Give me a graphic tee and structureless skirt and I’m GOOD! Which do you prefer?

3. Chuck Taylor sneakers with a dress – 

Wearing your ‘sneaks’ with a dress can be done in a fairly similar way as option #2 [with a skirt]. I styled mine with an all black dress with cutouts which I normally pair with heels. In this case, I was looking for another way to make my dresses cross-functional. Pairing them with Chucks was the solution I came up with! These shoes work because of the material and the delicate detail of the shoe. Low top chucks are such a dainty shoe that can be paired with just about anything, so if you’re looking for an added way to dress-down a dress; I’d recommend styling with Chucks!

    I was actually thinking recently that I need a pair of white Chuck Taylors and I think you have positively inspired me to do so :).

    Love the outfit combos. We are Cambridge Satchel twins. I have a neon yellow one.
