Slip-on Sneakers: The New Look

The last big trend in fashion sneakers — built-in wedges, introduced some seasons ago by Isabel Marant — was a natural for the younger set. Fortunately, it has been replaced by a look that works equally well for grown-ups: Vans-inspired slip-on sneakers with thick white soles took off in the summer and are gaining momentum this fall. What’s great about the new slip-ons is their variety. Casual and comfortable, they’re available in styles ranging from solid-colored canvas or flannel to perforated gold leather to leopard print leather or pony hair (like the sneakers here and here). If you go for one of the wild prints, keep the rest of your outfit simple. Beyond that, there’s no need to worry about rules. This trend is strictly about having fun. — Lola Ehrlich and John Birmingham
