Most trends are easily predictable because they are usually resurfaced trends from past decades. Then, there are those that completely blindside you because they seemingly pop out of nowhere and just take over the fashion world by storm. Chunky sneakers belong to the category of surprising trends – pieces that seem a little ridiculous at first but end up being extremely popular!

The chunky sneakers come in many forms and monikers. They are also called “ugly sneakers” and “dad sneakers”. You see them everywhere these days, worn by celebrities and influencers who are usually decked out in cool streetwear fashion on the gram. Because of its unusual shape and design, these chunky sneakers easily become the statement piece of the whole look.

We admit that while they might be the coolest trend at the moment, there are still some drawbacks to wearing chunky sneakers. For one, if you don’t do it right, you can look completely awkward. So, before you head out the streets with those dad shoes, here are some tips to help you get the look on point!

Start with White

If you are new to this trend, it is always best to start with the basics first. A lot of chunky sneakers today come in multi-colorways, which are all super cool and fresh but can be overwhelming. Unless you are bold enough to don multi-toned looks, we suggest easing into the trend with a classic white. This style is always easy to wear with pretty much anything in your closet, including denims, neons and more. Nude-colored sneakers are another safe choice that will keep you fresh but still neutral.

Pair with a Dress

Don’t want to look too boxy or bulky? Offset your chunky-soled shoes with a flirty dress. If you want to keep a touch of feminine flair, a midi dress would be the perfect outfit to partner with chunky sneakers. Choose dresses with flirty details like puffed sleeves, ruffles and patterns. A frilly dress is the perfect contrast to chunky running shoes. This combo will have you looking both cute and cool at the same time.

Wear with Socks

While there are some who like to wear their clunky kicks bare, it is best paired with socks. Minimal is not really the way to go when rocking chunky sneakers. Scrunched up high socks add a hint of dorkiness to the mix, which takes the whole look to the next level. Wear the scrunched socks and chunky sneakers combo with shorts to make sure they can be seen.

Go full-on street

The best way to wear this trend is to go full-on street wear, with your favorite joggers, a graphic tee and a cool jacket. You can also go full-on athleisure and pair it with track pants and a sweatshirt for that gym-teacher ensemble look that’s dorky-chic. When you find a pair of chunky sneakers that you love, don’t be afraid to experiment with looks. Remember, streetwear fashion is all about self-expression. Let your personality shine with the pieces you choose and rock those ugly sneakers with confidence!
