How to sport fall's hottest kicks

Nowadays, sneakers are becoming as fashion forward as a pair of heels. As you're charting out your fall back-to-school wardrobe, plan to add some fly kicks to the mix. They aren't just for the hip-hop culture, these comfy shoes come in an array of looks, perfect for any style.

Preppy
For the girly gal at heart, you can wear a simple pair of Converse in a solid tone. To add more personality to your shoes, pick up a pair with embellishments like sequins or an exposed zipper.

Retro
For a blast to the past, designers have been inspired by retro designs that include chunky Velcro straps and bold blocks of color. These shoes don't have to be bought new, you can find them at an used clothes store.

Trendy
Be on the lookout for designer collaborations as they commonly produce original pieces in limited supply. If you can't part with the added height your heels provide, designers have created the sneaker equivalent. Wedges are being transformed into a fashionable statement shoe in trendy fabrics like quilted leather. One last tip - make the ultimate first impression with all your soon to be new friends by rocking a pair of metallic shoes in silver or gold. These neutral yet dominating colors truly work with anything.
