No pain no gain? We don’t think so. Sneakers have been trending for quite some time now. High-tops, converses, supergas, flyknits, slip-ons—you name them. Chances are, they’re being worn (right now) by many of fashion’s best dressed. Not quite sure how to make the leap from Narcisco Rodriguez to Nike? Consider this a preliminary guide to getting your feet wet. Here’s the scoop on how to channel and refine your inner tomboy.


Femme Fatale

Black is always the new black. Anyone who says otherwise is ludicrous. Pair these super sweet, super suave, super slick high-tops with a flowy tee and skinny or slightly cropped jeans. Model off-duty? Check.

Sporty Spice, Is That You?

Fashion bloggers and editors alike have been nailing the fancy, low-maintenance getup. Don’t worry, their look is easy to replicate—just remember that contrasting is key. To look equally polished, you’d want to pair your colorful gym shoes with something you wouldn’t ordinarily. Think pencil skirt or silk dress.

Old School Style

Boyfriend jeans rolled up and ready to go? These classics sneakers complete any lazy Saturday look. Picture your hair in a messy bun, a loose crop top, leather sweats (or those boyfriend jeans). Hint: #YouWokeUpLikeThis #Effortless




Go big, go home with these statement showstoppers! If you’re looking for rain/snow boot alternatives, these babies will do just the trick. Wear them with simple, monochromatic pieces that don’t compete for as much attention. Remember, the bolder the colors, the more you’d be ballin’.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
