Forget about those girly dresses, floral prints and sky-high pumps, and embrace the season’s tomboyish stripes, snapbacks and laidback sneakers. Admit it, at some point in every girls life she’s dreamed of the day comfortable sneakers would become a high-fashion statement that could be worn somewhere other than the gym. Thanks to designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, the runways for spring 2014 introduced a high fashion sneaker that lends a modern, playful vibe to outfits that would otherwise feel prim and proper, giving the spring season a sense of liberating freedom. Whoever said beauty is pain was seriously disturbed.
Rihanna was spotted rocking the playful, tomboy look in Paris at the Givenchy fall 2014 fashion show where she opted for sporty, bold stripes paired with white sneakers and a veiled snapback. The singer looked chic, yet cool and casual as she embraced this bold racing stripe trend.
