Celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna wearing sneakers with skirts and dressesWritten by Chelsea - University of Oklahoma

Hi I’m Chelsea,and I’ll be writing the Fashion Challenge articles for the next few months! Audrey certainly left big shoes for me to fill,but I’m excited to continue a column that’s so popular!

Rather than featuring a new trend,the next few fashion challenges will focus on a clothing combinations that you probably already have in your closet. I hope that the upcoming fashion challenges will help you look at your wardrobe with fresh eyes and expand your creativity when it comes to putting outfits together. As always,feel free to leave feedback and suggestions by posting a comment!

Love the breezy femininity of a skirt but not in the mood to wear heels? Sneakers are a great,comfortable option for those days when heels are too dressy. Celebrities have been rocking this look for a while now; if you haven’t already tested the waters,this week is the perfect week to start!converse shoes worn with a dressI hope you’re ready to take the Fashion Challenge!

Tips and Tricks

  • Wearing actual running shoes might not give you the look you desire. Stick to pairing Converse,Vans,Keds,Pumas,slip-on Sketchers or retro styled sneakers with your dresses and skirts.
  • Go crazy with colors! The brighter and more unexpected,the better. Have fun with laces,too!
  • Don’t be afraid to try high-tops. They’ll give any outfit at nice retro feel.
  • Although I think this look works best as a part of a casual outfit,Kristen Stewart and Lil Mama pull it off beautifully on the red carpet in the pictures above!
  • This look is meant to break rules and is a great example of anti-fashion fashion. So do what you think looks cool,and rock this challenge with confidence!!

Get the Look

Outfit 1:

Outfit: Dress,Jacket,Necklace,Ring,Shoes

The outfit is girly and sweet,but the Chuck Taylors give it a surprising kick! Converse sneakers are classic shoes that look great with almost anything,so they’re an easy way to work this challenge.Leighton Meester wearing sneakers with a skirtWear a pink pair with a floral dress and denim jacket,and top off the look with a gold locket and ring.

Outfit 2:

Outfit: Tank,Skirt,Earrings,Bracelet,Sneakers

This spin on Leighton Meester’s outfit is a little more daring that the first sample outfit. Tuck a slouchy white tank top into a form-fitting black skirt,and throw on some cute black heart earrings and a charm bracelet. Pairing this outfit with some retro Nike sneakers gives it an unexpected twist bound to catch the attention of fashionistas everywhere!

1970 baby

For me grade 5, 1979 was all about the Jordache jeans (which I wasn't allowed to wear) and perms (not allowed that either - thank god)
By the beginning of high school, is was early 80's, a mix of preppy then bubblegum new-waveish stuff: Tretorn sneakers, top siders, Lacoste, OP, Chip & Pepper, and all the girls cut their long hair into cute short bobs a la Molly Ringwald.
Then: Madonna and Cindi Lauper styles hit. Asymmetrical hair, asymmetrical skirts, lots of rubber braclets, paint splattered clothing!

What's everyone's favorite trend right now? Lol.
I have a general and a specific.
General - the retun to all things classic. Sweaters, jeans, knee length skirts, natural hair & makeup. I'm a very JCrew/Gap/Banana Republic girl, so I love it.
My favorite speicif trend is all the flat shoes. I can't get enough. Ballet flats, flat sandals, low sneakers. I'm already tall, and don't like towering over people - so It's great for me. I have so many pairs too, I love the look so much (w/everything too)
