Trend Alert :: Chuck Taylors


So, lately in the blogosphere and world of pinning, I have seen converse chuck taylors come back in full swing. Made popular by basketball players, then turned into a staple for skaters, this shoe has never really gone out of style and has become an American icon. I remember rockin' pink converse high tops when I was in middle school and thought I was so cool {I wasn't!}. So wish I had those shoes now! 

1) This effortlessly cool, laid back look combines white chucks with a sweater dress and over-sized scarf.

2) This look takes a more dressed up short suit, and combines it with a slouchy basic white T, punch of leopard, and classic black chucks for a don't-over-think-it chic look.

3) Such a perfect go-to outfit for Summer. Throw on a shirt dress and a boho bag with your chucks, and your errand ready.

4) Christine from Fash n Chips does this look so well. A perfect preppy look with a little bit of edge.

5) Julie from Sincerely Jules goes for a color-blocked look with a bright top, neutral jeans, and bright aqua chucks.

6) Studded high-top chucks. Um, yes please! Makes for such a perfect DIY. Totally thinking of Grace from Stripes & Sequins right now.

So, of course after seeing all of these looks, I had to re-purchase a pair of my own. Came home with some high-top gray ones. Can't wait to figure out what I am going to pair with them!

  2. I love seeing this trend. I too had some classic black low tops my freshmen year of high school.
    You've inspired me to go check some out this weekend - I'm really liking the aqua blue.

    Thanks

  12. I have a pair of the high-top off white ones and I literally wear them almost every day! They definitely go with everything! I'm even thinking about getting the low-top white ones.

  13. Glad to see "inspiration" photos! I found a brand new pair (tag still on) of high-top Chucks at a thrift store in a really pretty aqua/seafoam color with baby pink on the inside. I couldn't leave them behind, but I've been having trouble deciding what to wear with them; I'm a heels everyday kind of gal. This gives me encouragement to try them out!
