Sneakers and Evening Dresses, It's Now a Trend

Try using the arrow keys

Sneakers for runways are officially a thing. Between Dior and Chanel couture tennis, sports fashion at DNKY Spring 2014 and the recent debut of Givenchy's Creative Director Riccardo Tisci’s line for Nike, the humble athletic shoe now belongs to the world of high fashion. Expect to see the look pop up on blogs and Instagram accounts everywhere.

The most daring part of this trend is the idea of wearing sneakers with a dress... an evening dress, in fact. I would love to give this a try, but images of Melanie Griffith in Working Girl come to mind, and not in a good way.

All we mere mortals can do now is take a few notes from the pros and hope their sage wisdom will not fail us.

Here are a few tips straight from the Spring 2014 shows for how to get the sneakers-with-dresses trend right.
