It was with a large cheer that we noticed a slew of stylish women wearing their (comfortable) sneakers out and about in place of ankle booties and pumps. Fashion editor Laurel Pantin used a bright red pair of Nikes to finish off an outfit that would work just as well with a more formal shoe. A chunky turtleneck worn under a double-breasted navy coat felt East Coast collegiate, while cropped leather trousers were a surefire editor staple. Her bold accessory choices didn't stop at the cherry kicks, either. She finished things off with a yellow Reece Hudson clutch and smoky lilac shades. Shop the outfit we put together here.
