My Go-To White Sneakers + 18 Ways To Style Them

Anyone else feel like white sneakers have become the must-have casual shoe lately? I feel like a few years ago it was super edgy and almost unheard of to wear white sneakers, but now they’re everyone’s favorite shoe – including me! And personally, I’m glad that they’re here to stay because they’ve become one of my favorite things to style!

There are SO many amazing brands and styles of white sneakers – it can be hard to pick just one favorite or know which ones to get. But even though I’ve purchased more than six pairs over the years, I still keep coming back to the same pair over and over again. That being said, I felt like these white sneakers deserved their own blog post where I show you multiple ways to style them.


White Leather Sneaker

I’ve had these sneakers for years and still love them. They are an investment, however, they’ve held up so nicely over the years. Shop them at Frye or Shopbop.

I purchased these Frye Ivy white sneakers over three years ago and they have continued to be my go-to white sneaker. They’re incredibly comfortable and made with leather, so they’ve held up really well! I also just love how they look on my feet (is that weird?) and think they complement just about any outfit that can be dressed down.

TBH, I probably have too many pairs of white sneakers, but I keep coming back to these because they’re the most comfortable. Plus, since the inside is leather as well, I don’t feel like I *need* to wear socks with them. Like I mentioned, I’ve had these for over three years and they’re still such a great staple for me!

18 Ways To Style White Sneakers

I figured while I was talking about my favorite white sneakers, I’d show you all the different ways I’ve styled them over the past couple years! As you can see from the outfits below, the options are limitless! There are so many easy and cute ways to style white sneakers, you can see why they’ve become such a staple for me.

I’ve included ways to style white sneakers for pretty much every season throughout these outfits. Let me know which is your favorite in the comments below!

Many of the outfits are older or I’m wearing things that aren’t currently in stock. But I’m hoping these looks can provide lots of outfit inspiration for you regardless!

3. Black leggings and an oversized fuzzy pullover for a relaxed, casual look

This look isn’t much different than the one I shard above, but like I’ve shared with y’all lately, I’m ALL about comfort these days! This would be such a great travel outfit – SO comfy!

4. Fitted dress and a sweatshirt tied around your waist

This would also be cute with a denim jacket tied around your waist! I loved the casual vibes of pairing the sweatshirt with the look. Either way, I love pairing my white sneakers with dresses!

6. Camel Coatigan, white tee and black skinny jeans

7. Mom Jeans and a Cute Top

Sometimes less is more, am I right? I love pairing my mom jeans with a fitted or bodysuit style top and either wearing pumps or white sneakers to dress it down.

9. Short denim skirt and longer duster cardigan

For this look, I love the juxtaposition of the shorter skirt and longer cardigan. It’s a different look for me for sure, but I love the casual-yet-put-together vibes of it!

11. White Skinny Jeans, Striped Tee & Jean Jacket

In my opinion, when you’re wearing a flat or a sneaker with skinny jeans, it’s important to show some of your ankle. I think it’s more flattering that way! Since I’m shorter, I usually end up rolling my jeans under (or over to create a cuff like I did here).

12. Joggers and a Sweatshirt for a lounge look

You can’t go wrong with a classic joggers and sneakers combo. It’s relaxed for sure, but if you pair your joggers with a coordinating sweatshirt, you’ve got yourself a very put together lounge (or athleisure) look!
