Sneakers, we all wear them but I can't help but love where the athleisure trend has gone. Sure, it might be the pregnant woman talking here but who can resist a comfortable pair of shoes with stylish separates for a street ready, on-the-go look? Especially in New York City? I honestly love how sneakers aren't just for the gym anymore. They now come in unique styles, colors and textures that make even the simplest silhouettes pop. I mean, look at the attitude that oozes from the gorgeousness that is the Puma Vikky platform . That color and suede... gimme. We're all into platforms right now, right? Well, this one deserves a spot in your closet, especially if you love navy (though it also comes in grey and black!). The SOFTFoam comfort insert on this trainer is one for the books- that, and the 1 1/2" flatform. A petite girl's got to get her height in somehow.
I'm sold and haven't been able to take them off since they showed up last week. Wear them to the gym for a quick workout or to brunch with a cute little spring dress: the sky is the limit when it comes to styling options. Plus, you get cute and comfy, all day long. It's a win win if you ask me.
As far as my styling of the platform goes, I kept it simple and let them shine with a t-shirt dress, leather moto jacket and simple cross body. While it's not your average t-shirt dress, thanks to the sky high slit, it still lets the sneakers do all the talking. Popular beliefs be damned, black and navy are great pairing. The proof is in the pudding, or at least this outfit.
Grab them on DSW.com or check out their athleisure worthy finds. Because if you're not already DSW obsessed then I guarantee after checking out their current finds for a fraction of the price, you'll never go back to paying full price. I know I haven't. I may be extremely guilty of constantly checking their inventory on a regular basis and may or may not have just bought another pair of sneakers and heels. Oops!
