Updated: 5 April 2017
Spring kicks off sneaker season, as athleisure is still on trend in the streets of SoHo. In the past, white and blush have been hot hues for kix, but for spring 2017, the color du jour is beige. So why is beige no longer blah? The hue dresses up your look, is spicier than the white alternative and more polished than a blush or pink sneaker. Spotted on the corner of Spring (how apropos) and Lafayette Streets is this look, which breaks down how to wear a beige sneaker with panache.

Hack the look…

Name: Meredith Bragg

Occupation: Manager, Marketing and Account Strategy

Signature Style: My taste is classic with a twist of modern. My go-to look is a vintage silk scarf and a sharp blazer, whether paired with flats, heels, or sneakers, ripped jeans or a skirt. That’s definitely how I embody my every day style.

Wearing: Franco Sarto Santana Lace-Up Sneakers Women’s Shoes, Harvey Faircloth OD Field Peplum Jacket in Camouflage, Céline Phantom Tote in Black, Zara Ripped Mid-Rise Jeans in Black

Says Bragg, “I am forever the girl trying to find a trendy non-athletic sneaker to wear with jeans and sundresses without caving for the typical Vans or Superga look you see on every street corner. I found the answer in these Franco Sarto beige sneakers.” Her peplum top and high-end bag dresses up the look, while her ripped jeans keep it casual.

Bragg was “a bit unsure of my purchase (since they aren’t my typical look). I asked my boyfriend’s opinion. ‘They look a bit like orthopedics,’ he said.”

Bragg avoids looking like a grandma by mixing high and street aesthetics. The result is comfortable chic. So, why not plan your outfit around a sneaker? “They have become my new go-to sneaker for spring.”

If Bragg’s look proves anything, it’s don’t listen to your boyfriend when it comes to finding the season’s “it” sneaker.
