How To Wear Converse All-Stars: 10 Stylish Ways to Rock Chucks

Chuck Taylor All Stars or Converse All-Stars (also referred to as “Converse,” “Chuck Taylors,” “Chucks,” “Cons,” and “All Stars”) were first developed and produced in the early 20th century. The innovative lose-fitting design of the shoe was intended to move along with sweaty gym socks and prevent blisters. Favored by baseketball players, the comfy canvas was ideal for playing sports.

A look once reserved for guys who valued comfort over style, it is now in vogue for ladies, too. Wearing trainers with a two-piece suit is now thought to be at the forefront of fashion. Being comfortable can actually look pretty stylish! The shoes are the statement piece, so the suit shouldn’t be.

Keep it simple – the more minimalist, the better. Let the Converse All-Stars speak for themselves! Consider it a new take on the going-out look: the sneaker and the dress pant.

Pair them with some Converse All-Stars and bring that look right up to date and very much on-trend.

Fabulous vintage items are usually of fantastic quality and, as they aren’t bought directly from the high street, they’ll bestow you with a unique and one-of-a-kind look.
