It’s not often I see someone wearing sneakers and think, “Yup: I want to copy her entire outfit, STAT!”
As soon as I saw this look on Barbora Ondrackova, though, I was pretty much sold on the whole “sneakers with a dress” look. And yes, I want to copy her entire outfit: even although I have absolutely no hope whatsoever of pulling it off.
The key to wearing sneakers with a dress? It’s all in the details. This outfit, for instance, is a clever blend of casual and smart: the stretch dress, when worn with sneakers, has an almost sporty look to it, but the structured bag and blazer are anything but.

This outfit is also a really great example of how a high-end or statement accessory can really elevate an outfit: that YSL handbag is the perfect finishing touch here, but if your budget won’t stretch quite that far, here are some lower-priced options, to help you recreate the look on a budget:
