Despite the vast landscape of sneaker trends that have graced your feed, and likely your feet, over the span of the last few years, nothing can ever take the place of simple white sneakers. Sure, a pair of multicolor chunky dad sneakers makes a splash, and designer sock sneakers are a playful option, if you dare. Even the crystal-bedecked Gucci trainers were good fun. But when it comes down to the type of footwear you can throw on with quite literally everything in your closet, white sneakers take the cake. But versatility is nothing without the right inspiration — fresh outfits to style with white sneakers is wholly necessary right now.
Since these shoes are the blank canvas of the footwear realm, they're ideal for pairing with some of the year's biggest trends — from flashy neon to smart suiting. They add balance to bolder styles and can help relax winter ensembles that feel too stuffy — both helpful tips to keep in mind. However, you may still be short on ideas at the moment (no judgment, it's winter and merely getting dressed deserves a trophy).
