How To Style Keds

I have a confession. One of my absolute biggest pet peeves is when girls where tennis shoes with jeans. Not Keds or Chuck Taylors, I'm talking chunky, should only be worn with other exercising clothes, tennis shoes. For example:

I mean come on. Ick.
However, there is a huge difference between tennis shoes and sneakers. One of the most iconic examples of sneakers is of course Baby in Dirty Dancing:

Lately I've started noticing the cutest little sneakers being worn with cropped pants, shorts, skirts and dresses. Ladies like Taylor Swift (the face of Keds), reality tv darling Kristen Cavallari, and model Candice Swanepoel have rocked these sneakers perfectly:

I have been seeing the cutest tennis shoes for spring. Such as the Kate Spade x Keds collaboration, Kate Spade Saturday PF Flyers, the Keds Braveheart Collection, and the Tretorn's for J Crew.

How precious right? I'm really leaning towards either the Kate Spade Saturday light pink PF Flyers or the navy J. Crew Tretorns. Which ones do y'all like best?!


Let me know which you think I should order! Do y'all like the sneaker trend? I think they're the perfect shoe for spring!

  1. TOTALLY AGREED about the chunky tennis shoes. If you absolutely must wear athletic shoes, at least wear bootcut jeans! Skinnies and large sneakers are the worst.

    Those keds are adorable! Last year I found some fake keds style shoes at Target that have the most adorable flower print. I love them! :-)

  2. SO glad I'm not the only one!! Thanks for stopping by doll! Have a beautiful day! :)

  3. I couldn't agree with you more! I'm not a fan of the chunky tennis shoes and skinny jeans.

    I have a pair of navy Keds and wear them all the time with a cute pair of rolled up skinny jeans. I had a pair of white ones but they were just too hard to keep clean since they were maid of canvas.


  4. Melissa- That's how I want to style mine once I get them! So happy to know you like your navy pair! That's what I'm leaning towards! :)


I love hearing from my readers!
