What to wear with white converse
The great thing about white converse is that they’re easy to pair with almost anything. You can wear them with a dress, a skirt, or even jeans!
Here are some of our favorite ways to wear them:
1) With a classic black t-shirt and jeans. This is probably the most common outfit for converse wearers—and why not? You’re going to be comfortable, but also look cool.
2) With a cute skirt and tank top! If you’re looking to add a bit of femininity to your style, pairing your white converse with a short skirt and a simple tank top will do the trick.
3) With a graphic tee and jean shorts! If your outfit is more on the casual side but you still want it to look cool, try pairing your white converse with some jean shorts. It’s such an effortless look without sacrificing style points!
You’ve got your white Converse, and you’re ready to take on the world. Now what?
While Converse are a versatile shoe, there’s a lot of room for error when it comes to what you pair them with. You don’t want to go too casual or too formal, lest you look like an old man who lives in his parents’ basement (or worse: a teenager who still lives in his parents’ basement).
But we’ve got your back! Here are some easy tips for dressing up or down your white Converse depending on what kind of look you’re going for.
Dressing Up Your Shoes
The most common mistake people make when dressing up their white Converse is trying too hard. It seems like an obvious thing not to do—you already have these cool sneakers, so why would you want to ruin them by wearing a bunch of accessories? But it happens all the time!
If you want to dress up your shoes without feeling like you’ve tried too hard, consider adding a statement necklace that matches the color of your shoes (or even one that contrasts). This will draw attention away from the fact that you’re wearing sneakers with jeans and instead focus on how cool they look together as an outfit.
There’s nothing that conjures up the spirit of summer better than a pristine pair of white converse sneakers. When you’re thinking how to style white converse shoes, you’re probably thinking they make the perfect complement to classic blue jeans, but a white converse outfit can be so much more.
White Converse With Jeans
Naturally, the casual feel of white converse trainers makes them the natural choice for giving an air of coolness to your summer wardrobe. A pair of ripped skinny denims with rolled up hems, together with a simple white vest top and denim biker jacket looks great with white converse as the finishing touch. Or why not try rolled up blue jeans with a loose white top and khaki jacket? If you prefer a looser cut, then wear your favourite frayed jeans with a white tunic-style top with three-quarter sleeves – simple but stylish.
But it doesn’t have to be blue all the way. Black skinny jeans look fabulously chic with white converse shoes, whether you tuck them in or flash a little ankle. Keep it understated with a monochrome theme, matching black skinnies, white converse and a soft grey boucle jacket, and add a splash of colour with your accessories. Overlay black jeans with a colourful sloppy joe, a bold print tee, or a revealing crop top to mix some variety into your look.
White Converse With Shorts
Denim shorts also make the most of pure white converse sneakers, emphasising your shapely legs and accenting your height. Distressed denim cut-offs, together with a graphic T-shirt and long buttoned cardigan, look effortlessly laid-back, whilst you can achieve a slightly more formal look with little denim shorts, dove-grey tee, and a striking jacket to make a colourful impact. Or to give a real illusion of height, match denim shorts and sloppy tee, then layer the outfit with a long stretch gilet.
White Converse With Skirts
You might think that skirts don’t make the ideal white converse outfit, but in reality a carefully chosen skirt can look amazing. A mini length allows you to flaunt your legs. For a sporty theme, choose a little white pleated tennis skirt, then add an original twist with a cable-knit sweater and white converses. For some pretty feminine appeal, wear a softly flaring polka-dot mini-skirt, black vest and white jacket with your white converse, or showcase the white converse style with a little matching outfit in ribbed wool. Long skirts work equally as well with white converse shoes – a free-flowing maxi skirt, worn with a plain grey vest top and denim biker jacket, lifts the white converse style completely out of the ordinary. Or slip in a little French nautical feel with striped skirt and tee in different colours, together with white fedora with contrasting ribbon.
White Converse With Dresses
Another option for your white converse outfit is to wear them with a dress. A simple monochrome print mini-dress looks beautifully smart, whilst a fitted white tennis-style dress recalls tennis racquets and strawberries with cream. A little lacy number, a floral print sundress or a figure-hugging bodycon dress can all make the perfect foil for a pair of white converse, or go the whole hog with a pin-striped or patterned maxi to really make a statement.
