I can still remember getting my first pair of Converse All Stars. I was about 16, very into Fall Out Boy and indie rock, and I wanted to be cool. I had visions of late night adventures, going backstage, and becoming an it girl. To be quite honest, I probably thought I’d become Anna from the O.C. if I had them. Fame, fortune, and infinite je ne sais quoi would clearly follow my decision to buy a $50 pair of sneakers. Shockingly, none of this came true. But I did learn a valuable lesson. Chuck Taylor All Stars go with everything. Perhaps not an Oscar dress, but anything short of an extremely formal gown looks wonderfully laid back with a pair. Even a suit looks great with them! In a myriad of colors and a wide range of sizes, I’d go so far as to say they’re a wardrobe classic. Given that Taylors just underwent their first redesign in 98 years, it’s a mighty fine time to exemplify the ways in which you can wear these sneaks.
I’ve been wearing mine with jorts and cutoff tanks all summer long. How do you do your Chucks?
