Converse are often a regular staple in many wardrobes. Converse have been around for a long time. They’re simple, classic, and very functional. Converse are a simple kind of running shoe that are usually a solid colour, but can be customised for any style or wardrobe. You can also pair Converse with a wide range of outfits due to their simplicity and versatility, and they are extremely affordable and durable as well. If you don’t already own a pair or pairs of Converse, you’ll want to consider getting some for your wardrobe.

Converse are a style staple and have been around for over 100 years. As trends change and fads come and go, the classics stay the same and stay in style, which is why you should consider adding Converse to your wardrobe staples. There are many styles and colours to choose from. All you need to know is how to modernise the old-school Converse look with the right outfit. Converse are a great option for women’s sneakers and many wardrobe styles. Here are style tips for wearing Converse year round with any outfit.

Create Contrast

If you want to make your sneakers to stand out and be the highlight of your outfit, you should choose a pair that contrasts with the rest of your clothes. One of the most classic colours that “pops” is red. However, there are many Converse colours that can be used to pop, including yellow, green, pink, white, and more. Blending in and matching your outfit is stylish, while contrast gives a focal point that can pull an outfit together.

Black Converse in Winter, White Converse in Summer

While this certainly isn’t a rule, it’s practical. In the colder months, you can depend on darker colours to retain more heat, especially in the sun. Also, colder months tend involve more precipitation, which often means more mud. Darker colours will look cleaner for longer between washes.  In the warmer months, you can choose lighter colours—white Converse runners in particular—that do not absorb heat.

Pair with Slim Jeans

Converse have a very slim and sleek design, fitting well to your foot. This also means that you should consider choosing slim clothes to pair with your Converse. A classic look would be slim fit or skinny jeans with Converse for a simple and always trendy style. Try to avoid chunkier looks, which can detract from your Converse and sometimes appear mismatched.

Keep Your Converse Clean

Lastly, you shouldn’t forget to care for your Converse. Keeping your Converse clean will make your outfits look sharper, cleaner, and more put together. Regular cleaning doesn’t have to be hard, either. Converse are easily machine washable, just make sure to use a gentle detergent and setting on your washer before hanging to dry for best results. You can also use an old toothbrush to clean by hand as well, especially for tricky or hard-to-reach areas.
