And as the designs are coming to the big companies from the looks seen on the street, we’re going to start with a few outfits spotted out on the streets.

Trendy fashion colors for this winter/spring

The winter colors are strongly pigmented gem shades this winter, which includes rich, dark purple, lots of brown shades, deep burgundy red, lovely forest-green, midnight-blue and deep pink. So you can wear sneakers in bright colors to match your garments or accessories, or to complement them.

Jeans look great with women’s Converse footwear in low and high-top designs. But don’t wear black high-tops with navy-blue jeans, as they just tend to create a jarring color clash. Generally speaking, black is the best color of Converse to match with black or gray bottoms. If you aren’t sure what color to wear, select from gray, pink or white.

However, you should always try to have some of your lower leg showing above your high-tops, so that the shoes are shown off well. Therefore, you need to wear jeans and pants that stop above the ankle to keep the focus on your Converse high-top shoes.

If you’re into minimalism, you’ll be pleased to hear that sneakers are focusing on classic styles this year, so the white Converse trend is a practical one. It allows for a clean look you can wear all-year round, with a layered look in cold weather and dresses in the summer season.

Wearing Converse high-tops with dresses is a simple and trendy look that anyone can put together. These shoes can mix or match with almost any dress style or color and here are a few examples to get you started. A black maxi-dress looks cool harmonized with black high-tops. Add a denim jacket for extra edge and a trendy tan bag to complete the look. It’s feminine and comfortable; with a high-fashion look you’ll enjoy wearing.

Converse high-tops & bright printed dresses

Ethnic printed dresses look fabulous with white high tops, especially if you can match the colors. Converse high tops with red uppers and white sides, look super with a bright red, floral dress and a red handbag!

Grunge outfits with shorts

Converse high-tops always look great with short denim shorts, when you want an edgy, casual look without heels. Wear your shorts with an untidy fringe at the hemline and a distressed vibe. Worn with a long-sleeved chambray, denim shirt and maybe a gray or taupe, wool sweater – in case the temperatures drop at an evening beach party – you’ll have a ‘cool’ grunge-look. Ballet pumps and sandals just don’t give the same street-fashion look if you’re into grunge.

Converse high-tops & maxi-skirts

Pink Converse high-tops & a flowy frilled skirt

Going for a day-out with friends, a lunch date or anytime you want to look cute, try a long, flimsy pink skirt with frill decorations and pink high-tops. This look can be worn with a new waist-length pastel cardigan, or a lightweight hoodie or sweatshirt. And it looks really attractive for summer wear, especially with a beige chain-strapped rectangular bag.

And the other favorite for young women is Converse high-tops with an above the knee A-line skater skirt in plain black, which can be jazzed up in the summer with the cute pastel colors. 90’s fashion is back in and that includes spaghetti strap basic vest tee-shirts, in gray, neutral beige and khaki colors and of course, the pastel colors.In particular, we’ll be wearing waist-length cardigans in adorable colors with dainty, feminine details like a large, lace collar and pearl or jewel buttons.

So your basic black Converse high-tops will match outfits that can be as bright on top as you wish for an easy summer style. And as the shops are packed with black faux-leather jackets at really low prices, why not add one to wear with your black sneakers for a trendy vibe. If you like wearing a skirt with your trainers, but it’s still cool weather where you live, add some thick, black tights and wear with your biker jacket and high-tops.

Show-off your shape in a bodycon pencil skirt with a carefully chosen casual outfit that gets the balance just perfect. This year’s long cardigans are thick enough to be known as cardi-coats and feature thick-textured knits and bright colors with abstract patterns.

They look excellent in a length that’s longer than the stretchy pencil skirt, and with a top that matches the main color in the cardigan. This is a handy, balanced springtime outfit made with soft, warm fabrics that are as comfortable as your black high-tops. Add a black, rectangular handbag with stud detail, or a brighter color to complement your colorful cardi-coat.
