Here Are Stylish Ways to Wear Sneakers to the Office Fashion inspo right here!

Most offices ask their employees to adhere to a certain dress code. It's an understandable and reasonable rule to keep everyone aligned with the company's image. But if you belong to a workplace that doesn't have a strict dress code, then you're one of the lucky ones! Still, you must wield this power with caution. While you have a little more room to dress casually and make do without formal shoes like heels and derbies, the problem lies in putting together an outfit that's too casual. But hey, don't fret! We're here to show you how you can wear comfy footwear (a.k.a. your sneakers) to the office.

Key Items: Blazer + Skinny Jeans

Most of our closets are filled to the brim with skinny jeans that come in a variety of washes. All you have to do now is pick your favorite pair and team it up with your trusty white sneaks. While there's no harm in wearing this jean cut and shoe style to the office, remind yourself to pair the look with structured pieces (like an oversized blazer) to add polish to your look.

Key Items: Windbreaker + Cuffed Jeans

To achieve maximum comfort in the office (especially during rainy days), wear a thin windbreaker to help keep you dry and stave off the cold. You can up your comfort factor even more by slipping on a pair of straight-cut denims to keep your style street. (And don't forget to cuff your jeans to show off your sneaks!) 

Remember: Keep the colors muted or neutral so you don't distract your workmates. The same rule applies to your footwear. Slip on a dark pair of sneakers—preferably something in olive, navy blue, or black—to help you hide any unsightly splash marks from the rain.

Key Items: Wide-leg Bottoms + Button-down Shirt

If you think blue jeans look too casual, you might want to try a pair of wide-leg trousers. Don your trusty button-down shirt and throw on a suede jacket to dress up the look, but skip loafers or heels. Instead, wear your trainers to keep your look relaxed.

Key Items: Trousers + Statement Shirt

Dressing up your sneakers is all about pairing the look with pieces that add polish. Instead of the usual jeans-and-tee combo, don a pair of comfy trousers to dress things up without being too stiff. Forego the office blazer and opt for a structured denim jacket with a dark wash and finish things off with a pair of running shoes for all-day comfort.
