The entire top rack of our closet is stacked with shoe boxes filled with boots, heels and flats - some of which only make an appearance for special occasions.  But my tennis shoes? Those have always been a utility shoe for me.  If I couldn't work out in them, they didn't quite have a place in my closet.  We do quite a bit more walking here than we did at our last place and I got tired of my flats taking a beating and getting blisters from breaking in new shoes, so I finally caved and bought a pair of Adidas Superstar Sneakers

For months I kept seeing them on other people and thought how cute they always looked in them, but never really thought they would fit into my personal style.  When I brought them home and tried them on, I was pleasantly surprised with how much of my closet they go with!  I've worn them with everything from a casual cotton dress to workout clothes and I find myself reaching for them more often than not these days.  As an added bonus, they've started making these much lighter than the 90's and early 2000's versions making them great for travel!  

I was asked the other day how to style these for fall and I realized most people wouldn't see these as a go-to shoe for fall.  Admittedly I hadn't really thought much about these for fall outfits because I love a good riding boot or bootie as the next girl, but sometimes those can start to get uncomfortable if you're walking around a bit.  

The key to styling Adidas superstars for fall is to keep the fabrics in your outfit simple.  A lot of fall fabrics can be heavy and textured, so think about cotton or cotton blends and materials like the military vest I'm wearing is made of.  Don't be afraid to layer - at some point the weather will demand it - and if color is your thing, go for that too!  They can be a great addition to your closet no matter what your style, so if you're hesitating like I did, take this as the nudge to pull the trigger!
