Trend Spotting: Girly Girl Dresses + Sporty (Chunky) Sneaks, Will You Take a Cue and Wear This?

It started with Rita Ora last September, then we spotted Katherine McPhee try the look, and now we’re seeing two more celebrities pull the same getup. We’re talking about the pairing of girly girl dresses with chunky sporty (albeit glam) sneaks for event appearances.

Besides the American Idol runner-up, we also saw the Hart of Dixie star, Jaime King, sport a similar look while attending the launch of Miss Wu (Jason Wu’s more accessible line, which you can find at Nordstrom) last weekend. She wore metallic gold flatform sneakers (from Chanel Cruise 2013) with a Jason Wu floral dress.

Fast forward to last Wednesday at the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards, we spotted young star Kathryn Newton sport the exact same pair of shoes (that Jamie wore) with a white ultra prim frock.

What do you think, ladies? How do you like the mix? Is this a trend worth following? Would you take a cue and cap off your  dress with sporty sneakers?

If that’s a yes, then get the look by grabbing these studded but glam sneakers from Steve Madden. Match a pair with a flirty floral number, and you’re all set!
