Cassie recently tweeted a photo of her yellow Balenciaga Covered City Bag and dope pair of white python print, leather, Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. Cassie’s accessory game is on point, but does every girl know how to style a dope pair of sneakers outside of casual attire?
Let’s take a pair of classic Jordan’s for example. Eboni Ward, owner of Fly Kix ATL, gave us the scoop on how to pull off a pair of Jordan’s, and three pairs of sneakers every woman should own. Get the 411 below.
Talking Pretty: Can any girl wear Jordan’s or do you need to have a particular style to pull them off?
Ebonie Ward: I think you do of course have to have a style with anything. It takes a girl with style to really take it over the edge. Sometimes girls just throw sneakers on, but I really like to step it up a notch when I wear my sneakers because I’m not the traditional tomboy. When I’m wearing them, I’ll style them with a Jeremy Scott jacket, or Crooks and Castle hoodies, or a Gucci hoodie. I like to compliment the shoes in a fashionista way.
TP: I always see Jordan’s worn in a casual way. How can women dress them up?
EW: In the recent photo that I did for VIBE VIXEN magazine, I dressed them up there with a Jeremy Scott leather jacket, black high waist leggings and a red print shirt from American Apparel, with a red lip, and the Concord’s that come out December 23rd.
TP: 3 sneakers every women should own?
EW: You can’t go wrong with a pair of Adidas, it’s just a really clean shoe. Air Max 95’s are a good running shoe, and a nice pair of Palladium boots are super sexy and really comfortable. You can dress them up or down, put on a pair of stockings or leggings with them, or just have a nice cute little skirt on.
