I have been wanting to test out the sneaker and dress/skirt trend for quite some time.  Everytime I seemed to attempt to pair this unlikely match it never seemed too look quite right, until now.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale allowed me to try out this look for the upcoming season without a huge investment.  This skirt is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and is marked down to just $35.  It would also look super chic paired with ankle booties in the fall.  With the ability to shop select fall merchandise at up to 40% off it is the perfect time to experiment with fall trends that might be on your bucket list.

After doing plenty of research on Pinterest I decided to stick to what I know best and stay with the athleisure vibe.  This high waisted skirt pairs perfectly with a crop top – only $35 – and the Nike logo makes it feel super sporty!  If a crop top intimidates you try a simple fitted white tee-shirt.  Keep accessories minimal and opt for chic shades to finish off your look.  As I’m still working on mastering this trend I rounded up some tips from the experts on how to perfect this pairing.

  3. According to Seventeen Magazine, If you want a look that feels a little edgier or dressed up, try black sneakers.
