How to Wear Running Shoes Without Looking Like You Are Going Out for a Run

How many pairs of running shoes do you own? If you are anything like me, you probably just have a pair or two, or maybe just an old pair of chucks just because you’re not that sporty and you’d rather spend your money on a new pair of Jeffrey Campbells.

But there’s a new running shoes trend that will make you clamor to have a snazzy pair of trainers for your self even if you’re not big on sports. Yes, ladies, consider wearing running shoes not to break out a sweat but to glam up! Here’s how:

1. Assemble a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, a chunky sweater, and a collared shirt, and then punctuate the look with your running shoes.

Rather than flats or oxford shoes, shake up your usual casual-preppy ensemble with colored running sneakers. Like fashion blogger Sandra, give the outfit a cool vibe with a crossbody bag (worn just above the hips, please) and a fedora hat.

2. Wear your tapered high-waisted trousers and oversized blazer with your comfortable running shoes.

Even an ensemble with a formal and work outfit vibe to it looks great when paired with running shoes! Belle did just that in this outfit. Opt for high-waisted trousers and an oversized blazer to get an effortlessly classy look.

3. Wear running shoes with your favorite sweater dress and a pair of skinny jeans.

As if the chunky sweater dress isn’t enough, this outfit takes the comfort level further up with a pair of cushiony sneakers! Lucy opted for a pair of skinny jeans to balance out the silhouette and capped off her look with a slouchy beanie and a crossbody bag.

4. Mix your running shoes with interesting pieces.

Try wearing your high-waisted printed trousers with a solid-colored turtleneck sweater, and then cover up with a leather jacket draped over your shoulders.

When minimalist pieces clash with quirky ones, magic happens. We love Xenia’s outfit. This look is a mixture of edgy, sporty, and quirky. The pieces have absolutely nothing in common with each other, but the combination works interestingly!

5. Wear running shoes with a skirt.

Yes, you read that right — a skirt! Your running shoes will work even when worn with feminine skirts. Just take it from Ebba. She wore a printed top over an organza skirt and then made the look cohesive by going for a bomber jacket.

Sneakers have also taken over a more couture form. Here are some running shoes to grab.
