ROCK 10 YEARS OF D‘LITES WITH THE DIAMOND COLLECTION

We’re starting 2017 in style by giving one of Skechers’ biggest trends of the past decade a sparkling new update: the D’Lites Diamond Anniversary Collection, starring four bold new styles (Be Dazzling, Style RevampShiny and New and Diamonds Are Forever)!

For 10 years, Skechers D’Lites have been a hot trend for our brand – launching in the States and becoming a fashion movement that spread across Asia, where top K-Pop groups Sistar and EXO have backed the collection. The heritage sneaker has been worn by global pop stars, fashion influencers and millions of fans worldwide. So we couldn’t resist but salute this amazing style and give it the glam it deserves.

The Skechers D’Lites Diamond Anniversary Collection rocks lots of rocks, but also a lot of comfort: it’s been modernized with awesome lightweight features and cushioned Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam. Our four new styles in this collection are all bejeweled in black and white, but each one is distinctly embellished with its own diamond rivets and bold metallics.

To celebrate this new trend, some of the hottest influencers around have been lacing up in their Diamond D’Lites and rocking this hot new look – everyone from Miss Minus Sized to Mermaid Waves! We love showing our Diamond D’Lites off with a classy outfit, or dressing them down with a pair of jeans.

BLOG TAKEOVER: MEN’S STREET STYLE IN SKECHERS

It’s 2017! A new year and an entirely new chance to find a solid resolution – why not make yours to be more stylish? Switch up your look by finding new ways to wear your favorite pair of Skechers with Samuel Anthony of The Frenchy Toast.

3bAs editor of The Frenchy Toast, my goal is to keep men’s fashion simple. I strive to provide men with tools to help them integrate the latest trends into their daily lives. I am thrilled to partner with Skechers to share tips on achieving the perfect street style look.

4aMy business partner, Erik Velasquez (AKA @CasualFridaze51) and I  partnered with photographer Natalie Miller to shoot these looks in downtown Phoenix. Although Erik and I shoot each other every week, it was exciting for us to both be in front of the camera. It sounds crazy, but it was actually our first time shooting together!

I’m pleased to report that it was a huge success! We dissected and analyzed the current street style trends and simplified them into the following four tips:

TIP #1: Get more use out of your athletic shoes (get Samuel’s Flex Advantage 2.0 – Missing Link style here) or casual sneakers (get Erik’s Crossroads shoe here) by dressing them up with a lightweight sweater or collared shirt.

TIP #2: Switch up your next casual look by mixing your favorite pair of Skechers sneakers (get Erik’s Bunker soles here || Samuel’s boots at select Skechers stores) with a heavy knit cardigan.

TIP #3: Pair Skechers work boots (get Samuel’s Skechers Work Relaxed Fit: Pettus – Grafford St boots here || Erik’s Bruiser boots here) with dark denim and a flannel for one of our favorite go-to outfits.

TIP #4: For the quintessential street style look, grab tailored joggers and pair them with the all-new Bunker sneakers from Skechers (get them here) along with a fitted bomber jacket.

Remember to have fun! Wear your clothes, don’t let them wear you!!

BLOG TAKEOVER: LORNA WEIGHTMAN STYLES SKECHERS

I work on my feet all day long, from shoots to filming TV and running around Dublin and most of Ireland to do my job. With this in mind I have to look after my feet, and I have been a long standing fan of Skechers. Aside from the support each pair gives, I feel I never have to compromise on style with either sneakers or shoes, and some of my most loved blog posts have been wearing some form of Skechers footwear! My followers on instagram love my shoe posts and in particular how I style my Skechers in each of my pictures. Me and my Skechers have been everywhere together in 2016!

Most recently, I traveled to Africa on a charity trip where I was out filming on mountains, remote villages and even Kilimanjaro! For those few important days I wore Skechers lightweight sneakers to keep my feet cool and comfortable. I cannot tell you how much I love Skechers Memory Foam! Every time I put on my trainers, my feet soak up the sponginess that encases them! I swear my feet have never been so happy! I love black trainers as I wear them with skirts and tights as much as I do with my favourite skinny jeans. My favourite pair right now have a snake skin print on the soles which gives a nod to the trend of the season!

I wear these to work but also to the gym! I love strength and conditioning training and when I am lifting weights I need to have my feet level on the ground. I find Skechers gives me the centre of gravity I need to support my feet and legs when I train. You have to protect your body when working out, so I started wearing  Skechers GOrun or Skechers GOtrail depending on the terrain for this great support they give me. Runs have never felt this great!

I’ve recently converted my Mum to wearing Skechers too for when she walks, and I am glad to report that she’s a fan too. We even have some of the same pairs! For anyone who wants to have a balance of supportive footwear for walking, training or just your regular day, there’s a Skechers shoe for you.

ON TREND WITH BLACK AND WHITE SNEAKERS

Want us to let you in on a little secret? If you are one of those people who likes simple and trendy but struggles to choose between the two, the time is NOW to jump on the Black and White sneaker look. Team Skechers is here to help you introduce this hot current style into your daily fashion!

LOOK 1: MRS. FASHIONISTA

Fads may come and go but having those basics on your feet won’t because of one simple fact: they pair with EVERYTHING!  You can style them with velvet purple overalls or funky patterned pants. No matter how out there or fashionable the outfit, a sneaker like the black leather Omney – Kort Klassix or knitted white Skechers Burst – City Scene will do just the trick.

LOOK 2: STREET SLEEK

This is the ultimate unisex trend, so men pay attention too! Whether you need black, white, or black AND white sneaks, Skechers has got you covered for all occasions. The comfy casual man can rock this look in a pair of DressKnit Mark Nason Monza slip-on loafers and the street sleek gal can work it in the retro Skechers Originals OG 90.  No matter how you hit the town, this look can work for you!

LOOK 3: ATHLEISURE

With countless options for both men and women that fit the B&W sporty sneaker trend, you won’t ever need to think about coordinating an outfit for those 2017 New Year gym sessions!  To complete the gym look, wear a colorful pair of work out shorts or top with your black and white sneakers. The color will pop while also bringing attention to the shoe!  Start sweating your way to your resolutions in the Flex Advantage 2.0  for him or the Skechers Burst for her.

Now that you’re all caught up, be sure to stock up on those Black and White essentials. You can find even more options for women here and men here. And thanks to the Air-cooled Memory Foam insole in every pair, you will be on-trend with comfort included. No more standing in front of the mirror deciding what to put on–with a pair of black and white sneakers you can wear whatever you want—even those velvet overalls!

BLOG TAKEOVER: THREE WAYS TO LOOK CUTE IN WINTER BOOTS

Great boots are even better with a great stylist! We asked Michelle’s Paige how to dress up our most popular Skechers boots of the season… read on for three new ways to dress up your look.

I don’t know about you all, but when the temperatures start to really drop, so does my patience for putting together cute looks. All I really want to do is stay cuddled in my PJs and binge watch Netflix all day… but that’s not realistic for a gal on the go. In my mind, a good outfit starts with a good pair of shoes, so I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Skechers to round up a few easy ways to look cute this winter without sacrificing your style.

COZY UP

First up, I’m wearing these snuggly Skechers Keepsakes – Peekaboo booties that are so cozy and warm, I feel like I am walking around all day in my slippers! I definitely wanted to showcase peeks of the faux fur interior and the tweed fabric, so I paired these booties with cozy socks and basic black leggings. I completed this look with an oversized poncho sweater which added to the comfy nature of this overall outfit, making it perfect for cozy weekends. These booties are available at select Skechers stores.

WINTER WONDERFUL

Next up, I’m wearing an all-weather winter look thanks to the Skechers Highlanders – Portland boot. (You can’t tell in these photos, but the ground was still wet after a rain storm, so I was sinking into the mud!) So you can trust me when I say having these boots are perfect for trudging through fall/winter snow, slush and overall gross, muddy weather! I love that unlike most classic rain boots or duck boots, these have Thinsulate™ insulation for added warmth and comfort. Plus, the tan and navy color of these boots perfectly fits into my cold weather uniform of skinny jeans and neutral sweaters.

 

GO GLAM

Last but certainly not least, I’m showing you all how I dress up a pair of winter booties. That’s right – it’s possible to wear a pair of winter boots in a glam way! Usually when I head out to a holiday party, I wear my winter boots and then bring an alternate pair of shoes to slip on once I arrive at the party. With winter booties this cute, there is no need to change! They even have a hidden mini wedge! I decided to go for a monochrome black and gray look while wearing the Skch Plus 3 – Trois booties (at select Skechers stores). The darker shades keep the look sleek and make it look even dressier. I added polka dot tights and a red lip for some fun accessories and to help break up the dark shades in this look.
