I’m an avid sneaker wearer. I wouldn’t go so far to say that I’m a “sneakerhead” or even call myself a Hypebae (though I follow the account dutifully), but I’m somewhat of an in-betweener when it comes to wearing sneakers. I wear them at least three days out of the week with everything from slip dresses to trousers and, of course, with jeans. I don’t have to spell out exactly why I gravitate toward the shoes because if you’ve ever swapped out your heels for a pair of rubber-soled sneakers, you’ll know their strong comfort appeal.
Which brings me to my favorite topic: outfits. Following these eight Instagram accounts with killer style fuels my sneaker outfits on the regular. Just when I feel like I’m wearing the same sneaker-and-dress outfit on repeat, all it takes is seeing the fresh ways these girls are styling them for my sneaker outfits to be instantly revived. From outfits with the most inventive use of color to the looks that feel easy and achievable, I follow these eight accounts for nonstop inspiration, and I suggest you put them on your radar too.
