You know that super-cute cocktail dress that you only wear on special occasions, because the sequins and silhouette aren't appropriate before the sun goes down? Well, we're here to tell you that you can (and should) rock that frock in the light of day.
How does one pull off such a trick? Simply throw on a pair of sneakers.
While that might seem silly, the right pair of kicks -- like classic Chuck Taylors or Stan Smiths -- have a magical way of bringing some of the fanciest dresses and skirts back down to earth. You can also throw on a denim jacket to really funk things up. Basically, it's an easy way to bring some longevity to your wardrobe while also striking that oh-so-illusive balance between style and comfort. Woot!
If you still need to be convinced, check out the ladies below who are proving that sneakers and dresses (or skirts) belong together.
