If you open your Instagram feed, you’re guaranteed to see people styling white sneakers with everything from activewear outfits to matching pantsuits.

The shoes are practically universal. White sneakers provide a base to allow any color to pop, whether you’re looking at denim jeans or a little black dress.

While you can wear these shoes with practically anything, we have a few ideas on how you can style them. We’re breaking our list down with multiple outfits you can put together with a pair of white sneakers for each season.

Styling white sneakers in spring

When we picture the 90s gym look, we think of Princess Diana in a pair of bicycle shorts, white sneakers, and high-top socks.

You can recreate this look with an oversized sweatshirt, your favorite white sneakers, and a set of statement sunglasses.

Double denim is a trend you can add-on to your white sneakers. The light color palette of the two styles is ideal for spring, and the shoes can help your blue-wash denim pop. Start with a pair of straight jeans and add on a denim-inspired blouse or jacket.

White sneakers are a casual option when you want to wear a dress but aren’t in the mood for heels. The skater dress is an ideal length to wear with your sneakers, as the shoes will help elongate your legs.

Summer is one of the only times of the year when a monochrome white outfit is an option. Throw your white sneakers into your suitcase with a matching shirt dress or jumpsuit to wear poolside during your vacation.

Whether you’re heading to the library or running errands at the grocery store, you can wear your white sneakers with jeans and a statement knitwear jumper in a pop of color.

Layer up against the cold with a full-length duster jacket or a trench coat.

Business casual doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort for style. Build your outfit around a monochrome pantsuit with matching trousers and a blazer before adding your favorite white sneakers.

Choosing a white top or blouse can help tie your look together and create a monotone look.

If you’re not a jeans fan, you can wear your white sneakers with a pair of black leather (or faux leather) trousers. Your shoes will contrast with the trousers and help build a neutral color palette.

You can add a pop of color with an oversized jumper or keep it understated with an earth-tone top. Channel your inner off-duty supermodel look with a head to (almost) toe black outfit.

Start with a baseball cap to shield your face before layering up with a black jumper and fitted long-sleeve jacket. If you want to keep your look casual, wear a pair of black activewear leggings or get adventurous with a faux reptile print.

Your white sneakers will give your outfit a lift and make it look instantly elevated. Mix and match your materials for a winter-ready look. You can contrast your canvas sneakers with a leather jacket or a suede trench coat.
