Becky Malinsky is a personal stylist and trend forecaster, former vice fashion director at The Wall Street Journal‘s Off Duty section, and owner of a particularly fun to follow Instagram account. We pay attention to what she posts – and lately she’s been posting her New Balance sneakers. And we understand why: they’re comfortable and enduringly classic, completing just about any outfit. Below, Malinsky shares four looks with her favorite styles.

Make your shoes neutral

“Sometimes it’s nice when a shoe can fall away so the rest of your outfit can shine. The gray New Balance 990s are such a cult classic at this point that they’re a legitimate shoe choice with just about anything. They helps tame the vibrant colors of this outfit and keep them grounded – no pun intended. The belt makes the look feel ironically masculine, while the pink balances out all the menswear styles.”

Put on your work pants

“I love, love, love a sneaker with tailored pants. The more functional the sneaker, the better. I paired the Fresh Foams with navy tailored pants from Attersee and a gray The Great sweatshirt tucked in. Freshwater pearls around the neck give this outfit a feminine touch . Without them, it becomes far too boyish.”

Gorp-ify your fall look

“Gorpcore’s technical neons and chunky hiking soles can easily be paired with jeans and a fall sweater. The fall colors help keep the neons at bay since we’re not actually professional mountaineers (at least most of us are). Here I balance the neon green and light purple with faded jeans and a Fair Isle cardigan. For a city dweller who misses fall foliage, these sneaks with a camp sock scratch the trail without leaving the city.”

Pair with a pretty dress

“I love pairing things that might not go together at first glance. I especially love how the bold blue shoes intentionally don’t match the pink and black floral dress. The sneakers also get the oversized cashmere sweater tied around the waist , to feel sporty. A real mix.”
