Dressing for comfort isn’t as easy as it seems—especially when you’re aching to dial it down with sneakers. It takes the right kind of pieces for any look to come together. Luckily for us we’ve got the likes of Issa Pressman to look to for inspiration. Her need for comfort thanks to her passion in dancing has made it easy for her to incorporate kicks into everyday style.
Seize the Sun
Take the dry weather as a chance to whip out your clean sneaks. “When I wanna look fresh and young, I’d go for my white sneakers,” shares Issa. Nothing says effortlessly cool than pristine whites; they’re easy to match too!
Match the Mood
Always keep the time of day and event in mind. For a night out on the town, select a pair of sneakers in darker tones. “I’d go for black sneakers with a few details of white or small colored details.”
Play it Up
Put on that edgy vibe with high cut sneakers. Issa achieves this by adding black socks. “This style is actually what I use for dancing,” she explains.
Tone it Down
For a day of walking, you’re going to want the ultimate partner for all that legwork. What better kicks to use than your gym shoes? “They’re perfect for a day full of errands, so after, I could just go straight to the gym!”
“I love culottes and loose pants!” Issa declares. Because of their versatility, these styles can look laidback or formal, depending on the shoe. “With a good pair of sneakers, I get to balance it out to look more like my style.”
