Suits and sneakers may seem like an unnatural sartorial pairing, but with trainers becoming more and more accepted as formalwear — remember when Serena Williams graced the Met Gala red carpet in those covetable Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1s? And when Millie Bobby Brown rocked a pair of Converse to the SAG Awards? — the tailored-suit-and-sneakers combo is now widely embraced, even by luxury fashion houses like Dior. It’s a truly versatile and wearable outfit that trendsetters from Rihanna to Bella Hadid, to A$AP Rocky would repeatedly reach for, regardless of the season.
In our latest editorial “Out of Office” — shot at New York City‘s Arlo NoMad — we explore the work-and-play-appropriate look, styling bold and low-key Fall/Winter 2019 sneakers by Nike, adidas Originals and New Balance with oversized blazers and tailored pants. Take your style notes.
