How to Get That Killer Casual Look with Sneakers

Some time ago, sneakers were seen as footwear for sports activities alone. The sight of a man dressed in a tuxedo but wearing a sports shoe or a lady rocking a short gown with sports footwear used to be more of an eyesore than a fashion statement. Such notions are gradually going extinct and if you still think that way, you probably aren’t moving along with the tides of trends.

Sneakers have evolved past the sporty feel usually attached to it. They are now staples in every person’s wardrobe especially when the aim is to get a killer casual look. With classic designer labels like Nike and Adidas saturating the market with beautiful modernized shoes which I’d describe as innovative, one can only include them as the perfect complement to any outfit.

If you’re thinking of going without your usual shoes or heels, here are some ways you can get that killer casual look with sneakers as styled by Toke Makinwa.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
