Say goodbye to your heels and hello to comfort. One of the biggest trends I spotted during NYFW was “dad” white sneakers and I couldn’t be more excited!
So what do I mean by “dad” sneakers? Sneakers that are more chunky and masculine looking – think the opposite of your classic Keds. Of all the “dad” sneakers on display during NYFW the most prevalent ones were white, my personal favorite as well. The white makes the sneakers feel fresh and chic and helps balance out their masculinity.
I decided to wear my white sneakers with another major trend I saw during NYFW – an oversized blazer, paired with a cropped top and denim skirt. The overall look is so effortlessly chic and looks cool without trying too hard.
Of course, there are a ton of trends out there right now so the question becomes – where to shop for all the items without breaking your bank. I’ve been using eBay for years (I checked and I’ve been a member since 2002!) as both a seller and a buyer and I’ve had nothing but great experiences! You might think of eBay as a place to go for buying only used goods but you would be wrong. In fact, 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy it Now” Option.
When shopping on eBay try to be as specific as possible (e.g. white sneakers vs sneakers, checked oversized blazer vs blazer). Additionally make sure to use the filters to narrow down the results; I like to filter my selections by size, buy it now, new (unless I’m looking for a vintage item like a bag), and location (if I’m in a rush I’ll choose to only see items being sold in the US).
So what do you think of the dad white sneaker trend? Are you going to give it a go? Let me know in the comments!
