When it comes to adding pieces to my closet, there’s one variable that’s routinely at play . . . a question I regularly ask myself before purchasing: can I wear sneakers with this? And not in a lazy sort of way that might indicate that I’ve completely given up; it’s gotta be something I like. Something I might, say, want to take a picture in.
The search certainly extends to dresses, where the sky is the limit when it comes to hemlines. Maxi, midi, knee-length, and mini all work with sneakers (IMO). So when I spotted this POPSUGAR at Kohl’s Flounce-Hem Mini Dress ($24, originally $60) that hit just above the knees but still had a whimsical hem with tons of movement, I knew I’d hit sartorial gold. “Can this be worn with sneakers?” got a big fat check mark.
See how I’ve been wearing this number ahead.
