How to Wear Sneakers with Skirts and Dresses

How to wear sneakers with skirts and dresses

Taylor Smith the poster child for sneakers with dresses and skirts!

Wearing sneakers with skirts to some is considered a faux pas and a major don't! I really do not take kindly to people telling me what I can't wear! Especially if I know that I can wear it and not look crazy!

Plus I only wear skirts and dresses.  If I were to follow their rule it would limit my shoe choices.  I think I can wear sneakers with my skirts and dresses.  These are a few looks I like that to me show that it can be done! For those who still think wearing sneakers are just for people that wear pants and shorts please read the following quote.

"Now don't be offended this is just my opinion, ain't nothing that I'm saying law"
 (in the words of  the great India Arie) 

Below are some cool ways to wear sneakers with dresses and skirts for those who desire to try a little something different!
