If you’re the kind of person who LOVES to ring in the season in style, but the thought of strutting from one bash to the next in sky-high stilettos or dress shoes makes you grumpy, you’re not alone. It’s 100% possible to look fashionable in one of the most beloved casual brands of all time—CONVERSE! Yes, you heard that correctly. The canvas sneakers you reach for to walk the dog, run errands, and grab coffee can look so perfect with whatever you wanna wear this season. See how some of our sneaker-obsessed Shoe Lovers have styled their favorite pairs below.
Wrapping gifts with a friend? You wanna look festive, but comfort is key. Slip on your white high-top sneakers, roll your jeans, and toss on a cute top and scarf (bonus points for whimsical holiday attire)! Then, reunite for drinks and dinner with out-of-town pals in a sweet skirt, bright sweater, and layered statement necklaces—and of course, your trusty white kicks.
Those casual get-togethers, like the family white elephant gift exchange are exactly the right place to rock this no-fail look: black high-top sneakers, your go-to jeans, and a button-up/vest combo. Afterward, easily transition to family dinner by swapping denim for khaki chinos and that vest for a jacket and tie. It doesn’t get any easier, gentlemen.

THE NEW TWIST
Converse is that genius kind of brand that knows their fans want to wear their sneakers 24/7—so they did something brilliant. They made dressed-up versions of their classic looks that pair well with any party look. How do shimmering grey metallic sneakers sound? Awesome to us! Wear them with colorful pants and a knit sweater, and you’re ready for the neighborhood cookie exchange. Then, host your own holiday celebration in sleek black leggings and a glittery tunic top—when you feel relaxed, so will your guests.

And Converse has done it again for the guys too: leather sneakers are ideal for looking spiffy (but feeling oh-so comfy). Got a few pals in town? Meet up at your favorite watering hole in leather kicks, dark denim, and a sweater. Then later, show up lookin’ sharp at your in-law’s bash in a tweed jacket and dressier slacks—but don’t you dare change those shoes!
