For many years, sneakers have been an essential part of the wardrobes of many, especially sports lovers. They've also become a must-have for fashionistas who like to look chic without sacrificing comfort. A dope pair of kicks are the perfect compliment not only for streetwear or athleisure, but they'll also go great with your spring dresses and skirts.

Of course, not every sneaker style is ideal. But, luckily, it's not too difficult to find what you're looking for. Today's kicks come in varying styles, designs and colors. From high tops to lows, and even mids—you can literally find a pair to compliment or even add a little flare to your full outfit. The truth is, the options are endless. 

If you aren't a big sneaker lover but want to experiment with the trend, we suggest starting with a classic pair of white kicks. They are versatile and can go with almost anything—especially denim. If your style is more edgy and fun, you can opt for a pair with a funky print or even bold colors. Some trendy suggestions are: floral, animal print, a bright pink or even a neon green.

As for how to style them, we love a midi-length print skirt with a graphic tee paired with a classic white shoe. Or, you could do a body fitting tank top dress with a denim jacket, and a contrasting low top sneaker. Either way, your spring dresses and skirts will go from cute to chic.

Remember, sneakers are the ideal transitional piece and can be used to add edge to any look—and they can be worn pretty much all year round. So, that give you more room to splurge on a pair that you really like. If you need a few suggestions, check out these 8 fashion-forward yet comfortable options we found.
