- Wear your white sneakers with high rise black faux leather leggings – so edgy and stylish!
- Add a transparent netting or chiffon cropped hoodie, worn over a pretty bralette or tight crop top.

Tips for wearing white sneakers
No one likes dirty shoes, and a little dirt on your white sneakers can really ruin the look. Keep your white sneakers pristine by wiping dust off with a damp cloth after every wear. Wash your sneakers regularly with diluted dishwashing liquid (a bar of sunlight soap also does the job) and an old toothbrush – gently scrubbing to clean any crevices.
We’re in love with the retro look white Fila sneakers – but if this brand is out of your budget, then you can achieve the same vibe with similar looking sporty white shoes.
