The converse is easily one of the world’s most iconic sneaker brands. The brand is mostly known for its vintage approach & unique shoe designs. They’ve been around since 1908 and they will be with us for many more years to come. You’ve also probably owned at least one pair of Converse in your lifetime, haven’t you? I think that everyone has had those low or high rise black Converse sometimes in the 2000s. Hopefully, you didn’t throw them away since you can still easily style them with some of our tips & tricks. Here’s our guide on how to wear Converse.
How to Wear Converse Chuck Taylors: Are You Supposed To Wear Socks With Converse?
Wondering how to make converse outfits work? Well, one thing is for certain: you should always wear socks with them. Plenty of people believe just because they are high-rise sneakers that they can be styled without socks, which is so wrong.
Ladies & gentleman, please wear socks day & night, no matter if it is in the middle of Fall or even during the hottest days of Summer. Why? Well, even though the comfy above-the-ankle fit Converse may seem practical, it still won’t prevent you from getting blisters. It is also unhygienic and it may leave your shoes with a nasty smell + you could end up with a fungal infection! Be smart, and wear socks. Converse high tops how to wear = answered!
Can You Wear Converse In The Winter?
Yes, and no. Let us explain.
Just because they are your favorite & sturdy pair of shoes doesn’t mean you should wear them 24/7. The perfect way to wear these shoes is accordingly to the weather conditions. Converse shoes are just like any regular shoes, meaning that they will leave your feet soaking wet once it starts to rain or snow. So please, be smart about it, and don’t ruin your newly purchased or old and beloved pair of Converse.
HOWEVER, there are some winter-collections which have leather high tops with a Thinsulate lining. If your Converse shoes are made out of rubber, vinyl or nylon, you can make them a fashion trend, even in the winter!
Can I Wear Converse With Leggings?
Leggings are super comfortable & cozy, but they are also the perfect wear for the gym. Men have been wearing leggings more & more just recently, and some guys can make them look cool. This outfit can look great, but there are some rules which you need to take in consideration when styling Converse:
Wear your favorite pair of leggings only if you are off to some casual or sporty events. Never wear leggings out on dates, meetings, or when you’re off to work (unless you work at a gym).
Make sure your leggings are thick & high-quality. Invest in their material since simple, light and short leggings will turn on the red flag. These can rip, show off your underwear, and are an overall fail. The best choice is black leggings which are also by a trustworthy athleisure brand.
Wear low-rise converse since these will look the best with longer black leggings. Make sure you also wear dark converse (such as black, blue or green) just so you match them the best with your outfit.
You can also throw on a longer jacket if your leggings are a bit see-through. Also make sure the jacket is dark blue, black or any other similar color to your shoes.
You can also wear a pair of jeans on top of your leggings, especially if it is in the middle of the winter. These outfits are a bit harder to style, but you can easily add on to your wardrobe & stick to a thicker shirt, coat, or knit on top.
What Can I Wear With White Converse?
The white converse shoe is the most typical yet most worn pair of sneakers thus far. It seemed like everyone was wearing them from 2000-2010, and everyone recognized their true beauty. Were you a fan of white converse, or you preferred the high-rise black Chuck Taylor back in the day? Either way, there are several different ways which will add-style to all of your outfits. Here is how:
If you’ll be wearing white converse make sure you stay away from black tops, trousers, or jackets. Your white shoes will pop if you end up pairing them with an all-white outfit. So, in this case, try to wear white converse along with a plain white T-shirt, or you can go for a Converse logo shirt on top.
Bottom-wise, wear white, khaki, beige, or red pants/shorts. These will pop the most and will truly make your outfit come to life.
Once you are done with the base add accessories on top. The true beauty lies in a simple watch, giant bag, or a beanie! Many trends may be in at the moment, so make sure you shop for whatever may go along with your converse the best.
How To Tie Converse?
It can be hard to figure out how to wear converse, but figuring out the right way to tie a shoe is even more confusing. However, the true beauty is in colorful shoelaces. One of our favorite outfits has got to be the old-school zigzag style fashion of tieing up the shoes. So, this time around, try to tie your Converse the following way:
Experiment with more than one set of shoelaces if you truly wish to stand out.
Use thinner and more narrow shoelaces since these will contrast a lot more and will give out a bold effect.
Use a pair of neon green and neon pink shoelaces (since neon is so in right now) and lace both sets in.
This will make you stand out in any situation & will look appropriate for many different events.
You can tie them down with two bows or with one bow for each color.
If you don’t like this Pinterest look you can go for the typical white shoelaces. However, at least try to wear black laces on black converse and add some interesting elements to your outfit.
On That Note
Converse has got to be one of the most stylish and iconic trainers that a sneaker-lover can own. The company creates some of the prettiest shoes for both men & women, and are always making their wearer the star of the show! They have a wide range of shoes to this day, perfect for everyone! No matter what kind of vibe you want to dress for, there will probably be a pair of Converse for you to rely on. Black and white Converse are more classic and easy styles to pair-up. So, in case you are a Converse newbie and you want to hop onto this trend, we highly recommend these as your first-time sneakers.
