How To Wear White Kicks Without Looking Like A Tourist

How to wear white sneakers

Stark-white kicks are no longer the choice for tourists only. Nowadays (since four years ago to be exact), they have become a fashion statement for both men and women. I honestly believe this trend is not slowing down any time soon. I decided to take part in it, because I love styling around sneakers in general and also because I've lately been into a white-color obsession.
Now, the only question is: Can we kick them? Well, wearing all white sneaks can be a tad intimidating, but the only way to find out if we can rock them, is by taking chances and wearing them.
To me, an easy way to wear white kicks stylishly is by pairing them with slick pieces and feminine garments, or a combination of both.
Today what you seeing is a brand new pair of all-white sneakers, which by the way, made me feel like a kid again.

I wanted to style them with so many fun combinations, but since the weather is still cold, I decided to wear them with winter-friendly pieces.
What I had in mind was a comfortable look from head to toe, but at the same time, I did not want to look sloppy and careless. All of a sudden, a black and white look seemed like a great idea, however, I wanted to add a touch warmness, but not only color-wise; I also needed a warm coat to keep me warm while "touring" around town. Well, I ended up wearing a mixed pattern outfit with matching bag and shoe color. The coat is vintage and it has a very feminine style, so I thought it was a great piece to add juxtaposition.

The souvenir t-shirt tucked inside old shapeless jeans isn't the only characteristic that give tourists away. Taking a map and reading it on every street you go is also a big giveaway, so my boyfriend and I decided to add some humor to this photoshoot, by purchasing one at a local Shell gas station and using it in almost every shot.
