March 13th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Unexpected Trend Alert: Dad Sneakers & How to Style Them
They’ve been slowly creeping their way into the fashion scene... First on the runway, then on street style “it girls” and celebs, and now I’m officially seeing style bloggers covet the surprising trend of the “dad sneaker.” You know the type: the off-brand, normcore sneaker your average dad can be seen wearing at an amusement park chasing after his kids. We embraced “mom” jeans, and apparently dad sneakers are next!
I’m not entirely on board with this trend, but in case you happen to be, there are some absolutely ways to make these chunky sneakers look chic! Take a look at five ways to style dad sneakers and make them the “it” sneaker of 2018.
