How to Style GOAT’s Selection of Spring Kicks According to the Fashion Set
Everything you need to know on leveling up your spring style.
Spring has finally descended upon us, meaning now’s the right time to start planning your warm-weather ensembles. There’s something to be said about the transformative power of a fresh pair of kicks and this season, the key to mastering spring style starts with putting your best foot forward in vibrantly-hued colorways, graphic patterns and souped-up designs from brands like Nike and adidas. If you’re looking to liven up your fashion choices, take a cue from It-girls Madison Blank, Jess Lawrence, Gia Seo and Jess Gavigan by opting for daring silhouettes like the Stüssy x Air Zoom Spiridon Caged “Fossil” or the Sacai x LDWaffle “Pine Green” paired with sporty separates, relaxed suiting and sleek, statement outerwear. Below, find ten cult-classic sneakers to cop from GOAT this spring, as seen on the fashion set.
Take your WFH outfit to the next level with plush, sports-derived separates à la Madison Blank. Here, the savvy dresser instantly elevates a classic, coordinating sweatsuit in grey by pairing her look with the coveted Stussy x Air Zoom Spiridon Caged “Fossil” kicks that feature an understated, two-tone color scheme in tan and contrasting hits of blacks. To finish the cozy look, accessorize with delicate jewelry like a pendant necklace and minimalistic rings.
Pro-style tip: Color coordinate your statement kicks with your #OOTD. Blank masters the art of fuss-free style by expertly pairing the Air Max 90 SP “Reverse Duck Camo,” which features an orange mesh upper and a revised duck camo print, with an oversized sweatshirt and coordinating sweatpants in military green by Fear of God.
Now that spring is officially underway, it’s time to ditch darker hues in favor of bold splashes of color like Blank, who elevates a varsity-inspired jacket in bright, bubblegum pink with slim, tailored trousers. She balances the polished look with the Dunk Low Retro Vol. 1 SP “Plum” sneakers for a fresh take on spring dressing.
This season, let your statement kicks do all the talking. Jess Lawrence takes her style to new heights by mixing the Sacai x LDWaffle “Pine Green” sneakers with a fitted, cargo vest in a neutral shade of tan and coordinating cropped pants in the same classic hue. Accent accessories like colorful, tie-dye socks, heaps of layered, silver necklaces and rings, along with a monogrammed Louis Vuitton mini-pouch complete the utilitarian look.
Put a twist on the classic suit and look for a style that comes equipped with a relaxed fit and is fashioned in a bold color like brazen blue. For Spring/Summer 2020, take a sartorial risk like Jess Lawrence who pairs her crisp suit with a yellow crop top, statement accessories like a jeweled choker and Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97 kicks that perfectly coordinate with the color-tinged look.
Streamlined, statement pieces that make an impact are at the core of Gia Seo’s eccentric take on style. Mixing a sleek, satin coat with sporty, cropped pants in a subtle wash of cream, Gia balances her standout look with a pair of classic adidas Superstar “Running White” sneakers. For an added dose of color, she completes her street-style look with a graphic crossbody bag, yellow and red socks as well as lucite sunglasses in neon green for a look that’s anything but ordinary.
No one mixes patterns, colors and texture better than Gia Seo. In true form, the trendsetting-dresser mixes the Dunk Low Retro SP “Kentucky” with color-coordinated Comme Si ribbed, striped socks, graphic black and white pants as well as a statement, silk jacket — proving that standout style is best when it’s experimental.
Now’s the time to go big and bold when it comes to wearing color. Jess Gavigan aka Juice Gee is a pro when it comes to mixing and matching her wardrobe choices with her fresh-to-death kicks. The self-professed sneakerhead masterfully mixes the Women’s Air Vapormax “Creamsicle” with orange, ruffled eyelet pants and a multi-colored tie-dye hoodie for a fresh take on spring style.
Simplistic, understated looks that still pack a punch are always in style. Give your everyday outfit routine a serious jolt, like Jess Gavigan who dons an oversized, striped shirt in Day-Glo orange and relaxed pants by Stüssy. Complete the low-key ensemble with a fresh pair of Air Max 95 OG “Solar Red” kicks.
Now is the time to embrace the neon-tinged color rush that’s currently dominating fashion by opting for a pair of slime green kicks like the Air Max 95 OG “Neon” 2015. Jess Gavigan demonstrates how to ease into the neon trend by pairing her punchy kicks with subdued separates that includes an oversized, graphic sweatshirt, a sporty Nike skort and a black, suede cowboy hat.
