Rainy season is upon us! Atleast here in the Philippines. You know what that means? That omnipresent white sneakers that is largely associated with the athleisure trend may not be appropriate anymore (maybe for some days). Splashing puddles in your Stan Smiths or triple white Huaraches (see the looks here)? NO, NO, NO. Trust me, I bought this highly recommended cleaner in Singapore last January but never really got the time to clean my shoes. :-/
So in what I would say a temporary adieu to my white sneakers, I’ve collated these looks on how I wore them to work for the last six months. As a bonus, I’ve added tips on how to make them work-appropriate. Atleast for casual Fridays? Check out these looks on how to elevate your white sneakers to work.
#1 Dress it up with a midi-length skirt or dress. You can always start with the basic colors (black or gray).

#3 Take cues from Kendall Jenner and MOD (model off-duty) it up in all-black. She isn’t the queen of Pinterest boards for nothing.

#4 Shirtdress. It’s versatility is endless. You should really invest in this timeless piece. Glad I found mine from this trip.
