Chances are, you either own a pair of Vans or, at the very least, you’ve tried a pair on. Vans are a classic shoe for skaters and surfers, but as the world of fashion is ever-growing, you can now spot Vans on many style bloggers and influencers. Why? They’re never going out of style, plus they are comfortable and versatile. If you think you can’t pull off wearing a pair of Vans, then think again. Virtually everyone can find a style that suits their needs and there are endless ways to wear them. Here’s a quick guide on what to wear with Vans.
There are so many awesome pairs of Vans that have a cool, graphic pattern. Take a pair of leopard-print Vans and wear them with a pair of distressed jeans or shorts. Opt for a slouchy V-neck and a leather jacket or sleek camel-colored coat. If you keep your outfit tame, your leopard Vans will pop in the best way.
High Top Vans
You can’t go wrong with a pair of high top Vans. Take your favorite pair of skinny jeans and cuff them right above the ankle. Pair your jeans with a relaxed-fitting tee and complete your look with a plaid shirt tied around your waist. You can also wear high top Vans with a pair of boyfriend jeans, shorts, leggings, etc. The list goes on and on!
This style is by far one of the most popular. Stores like Madewell made the perforated leather slip-on extremely popular. No joke, you can wear slip-on Vans with probably everything you currently own in your wardrobe. They go great with jeans, dresses, trouser pants, leggings and more. In addition, to perforated leather slip-ons, other popular styles include quilted, leather, suede and metallic leather.
Low Top Vans
You can wear low top Vans with anything and everything. Grab your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans or distressed black skinny jeans. Try it with an oversized or slouchy sweater for a laid back and effortlessly cool look. You can also wear low top Vans with dresses, skirts, and jean shorts. Keep it casual like a skater or dress it up to be a bit more girly. Either way, you’ll be looking stylish.
