Meet The Sneaker Baes With Enviable Winter Shoe Game

When comfort meets style.

Style

'Tis the season to be cozy so prepare yourself for a stylishly comfortable winter. Although 2020 has been the catalyst of a major shift in our lives, we've all been forced to adjust our wardrobes accordingly all while attempting to remain fly while doing so. In the midst of our lives totally changing overnight, it's been amazing to witness the evolution of fashion and adapting to a forever-changing world through our wardrobes. Even during a life-altering pandemic, as a collective, fashion girls have proven that great style can still be effortless yet practical at the same time.

While winter is always a challenging time of year, sneakers remain a reliable choice for cold weather essentials whether you're a self-proclaimed sneakerhead or not. For the last few months, I'm loving the everyday casual slays witnessed outside and on my Instagram feed. This week, I took lessons from the most fashionable sneaker baes schooling the rest of us on how to experiment with cool casual style this winter season. With a variety of looks paired with the trendiest of styles, these are the best and most colorful sneaker looks I've seen throughout the week.

Black on black may be the chicest of all looks and the perfect setup to add a pop of colorful accessories. Leather pants are a girl's best friend this time of year and, casually speaking, adding a sneaker is a practical way of wearing this cold weather essential this particular winter season.

We've traded in our two-piece office suit for sweatsuits this year and I'm not mad about it. I love this chic winter coat and trendy paper bag clutch paired with a traditional gray sweatsuit and sneakers for a casual glam look. The mixture of cream elevates this leisure look, perfect for the fashion gal on the go.

One thing about this look is the neon green for me! This is the perfect time of year to pair black with colorful neons for an aura like no other. Matching your outfit with your sneaker's color scheme is another fun way to experiment with color. Grab a stylish pair of sunglasses as well and you'll really take it up a few more notches.

It's all about color coordination and finding what colors work perfectly with one another. I love this sneaker look because it's practical for everyday wear while inspiring new ways to mix prints and multiple colors in one cool look. Cargo pants are a must-have when thinking of outfits to pair with sneakers as well as vintage sweatshirts for a super stylish throwback look.

Whoever created the infamous mantra, "no white after Labor Day" must have been unaware that fashion simply has no rules, especially in 2021. I'm obsessed with this effortless head-to-toe casual cream outfit, perfect for winter. Super cute and easily achievable, this daytime sneaker look is one for the books.

For some time now, the Human Design System has been picking up mainstream traction! And like so many other explorative journeys, the concept of Human Design took off via social media. Similar to Astrology, Human Design requires your birth time and date, and it also provides a map of sorts to help you navigate this world with purpose while being uniquely you (and tapping into your purpose). In fact, if you desire, the information can work simultaneously with Astrology.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.

We all know what it is to love, be loved, or be in love – or at least we think we do. But what would you say if I were to tell you that so much of the love that you thought you’d been in was actually a little thing called limerence? No, it doesn’t sound as romantic – and it’s not – unless you’re into the whole Obsessed-type of love. But one might say at least one side of that dynamic might be…thrilling.
