Can You Wear Sneakers? The CLT Boutiques Show Us How at Any Age.

The sneaker trend is going nowhere so you may as well embrace it.  You CAN wear this trend at any age, although we’ve got some tips for you if you are ~ or want to look ~ a bit more sophisticated in your kicks.

#1. Wear them with cropped or ankle length pants and jeans. Skinnies or kick-flare preferred over bells and bootcuts.

#2. Try them with a midi or calf length hem, dresses preferred. Most skirts just look like Marion Cunningham with sneakers if you are over 40.

#3. Go Monochromatic. It helps take the ingenue out of the look.

#4. Go with a striped top. They just work.

We asked the local shops to send in some of their favorite looks with their favorite sneakers. Here you go:
