Honestly, all of the cool kids are doing it so I’m feeling the heat more than ever to jump on this bandwagon. This fall is all about cool kicks and I’m not just talking about new running shoes or workout gear. Fashionistas around the globe are turning comfy sneakers into trendy staples. Believe or not (if neutral enough), chic sneakers are now considered interchangeable with a hip flat or even heels and are equally as acceptable. I promise I would never mislead you. It sounds a little crazy, but I’m here to tell you it’s approved and encouraged.

Below are three super trendy and current sneakers that you can find at Tanger today with a little proof that they can be dressed to the nines (in case you didn’t believe me).

To Get Trendy – Go with Cole Haan

The first sneaker is the Cole Haan ZERØGRAND Oxford. It took me a while to warm up to this shoe, but I’m telling you as soon as I slipped my toes into my first pair, I was determined to make them work with everything I own. The easiest way to style these stunners is with distressed skinnies, a casual tee and a long cardigan. Give the sneakers all the glory they deserve. Either keep the shoe and sweater monochrome or go for a pop of color. You can also find this oxford in colors like navy and fuschia. So trendy and I guarantee all your friends will be asking where you got them – Easy answer, Tanger.

For Flashback Fridays – Rock Adidas

Come on! Who didn’t have a pair of these in the 90’s?! I can’t be the only one. Now, I’ll spare you all the details on how they were styled (or not styled) back in the day and just focus on the positive. These classic “shell toe” Adidas Outlet Store sneakers made a huge splash in the fashion arena in 2015 and are here to stay for fall 2016. While I used to sport the all white look, I would recommend opting for the black stripes or even the metallic if you’re feeling bold. Pair them with simple cigarette pants and a bold coat and you’ve got a sleek autumn look. Carry the sporty feel all the way with trendy sunnies and a sleek center part for a super fashionable feel.

Have a Niche for Nostalgia – Choose Chucks

Another one of the classics – I think every girl raised a tomboy had a pair of these beauties. High-top, low-top, pink, white, red… I had them in every variety. I would say my chuck style really hasn’t changed. I still rock them with jeans and a t-shirt, just the fancier variety. 🙂 I’ve graduated from cargos to distressed boyfriend jeans and opt for a more form fitting V-neck over the field day tee. A long trench is a nice addition for the fall also. Keep these sneakers out year round – they’ve yet to go out of style. If you need a fresh pair, check out Journey’s at Tanger.

So, are you going to kick up your varsity style a notch or two this season? I’m most excited about the opportunity to swap out some of my “less comfortable” heels for these trendy options. Check out some of Tanger’s top shoe brands like Cole Haan Outlet, Journeys, Nine West Outlet, Steve Madden and more for all of these great styles and more. I go through shoes so often, I really can’t justify paying a ton so outlets are the way to go. Fashion for less, it’s the name of my game.
Happy Shopping!
