Dress them up or dress them down; it’s Old Skool’s all the way
These cool kicks aren’t just for skating anymore! Thanks to some well-dressed streetstyler’s the Vans Old Skool Sneakers have quickly become one of the hottest shoe trends of right now thanks to their relaxed, edgy and monochromatic aesthetic.
Our favourite thing about the Old Skools is their ability to worn with everything and anything – pair them up with a floaty skirt for a nice contrast thanks to a lil’ juxtaposition or team these sneakers with some ripped denim and an oversized band tee for the ultimate street look! Rock them however you please.
Need a little style inspo? We got you! Check out some of our favourites below:
We love a good oversized coat! Denim works wonders with the high-top Old Skools too.
Not a denim fan? A sleek black coat still looks pretty damn great with the Old Skools – keep it minimalist and monochrome to give a more modern feel to your look.
Look bad-to-the-bone and embrace the edginess that comes with these kicks by adding a leather jacket like Fashion Blogger Natalie! This is a chic way to toughen up what you’re wearing and is one of our favourite model-off-duty outfit’s.
Mix up your leather luxe look by popping a grey hoodie underneath.
The perfect trio: your favourite denim, a white tee and your Vans Old Skools – it’s so good you’ll happily want to become an everyday outfit repeater.
If Alexa Chung has given it the tick of approval, then you know it must be damn good! They don’t call her one of the best Fashion Icon’s of, well, ever for nothin’.
Did we mention how incredibly comfortable these shoes are? This girl is all about high levels of comfort too, teaming her favourite kicks with a light pyjama style top. 10/10 for this look in our books!
Can you see the a pattern forming here? They’re sported by all the cool girls from all over the globe, including our favourite local fashion logger, Carmen Hamilton! This girl nails the effortless cool vibes every time and the fact that she wears sneakers makes us love her even more.
These unisex kicks look killer teamed up with neutrals and sweatpants.
Layer up with the Old Skools!
If you’re down with hi-tops, the low cut version is still very cool and very comfortable! We’re loving this look with a chunky knit and midi skirt.
Because these kicks are quite simple, you can go all out with your outfit to balance it out! Layer up a black lace singlet over a white button up and grab your favourite pair of dark denim.
Metallic pants and white hi-tops? Yep we say ABSOLUTELY! Keep it fresh with these Sneakers.
