In the grand tradition of fashion, the season’s ‘it’ shoe is actually a classic. White sneakers have long been a staple on the tennis court and in middle schools everywhere. But, recently fashion insiders like Phoebe Philo of Celine, Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules and scores of street style stars, have incorporated the shoes into fresh outfits ranging from colorful suits to cut-off shorts. The classic shape and crisp color makes them easy to work with virtually any outfit for a quick dose of casual cool. Our pick is the classic and affordable Low-Top Chuck Taylor style or opt for a sportier favorite like the adored Stan Smith Adidas. Pair with your favorite flippy skirt or a classic button-down and shorts—the possibilities are endless.
