Big Chunky Sneakers

I have a big shoe size and I'm always looking for shoes that could make my feet look smaller. But hey! Big feet are a trend now. These white chunky sporty looking shoes can be worn with a dress, jeans, chinos, anything really. The days are gone when sportswear was only worn during sports. They are super comfortable for vacation, because you never know what you might encounter on your travels (a trek?)

Neon

Neon is back and its most popular in green and yellow tones. This trend is so hot, and can be styled in so many ways. Some play it cool and wear it with blue and black neutral colors, some go all out and wear it with hot or neon pink.
