Sneakers make a sensible shoe choice when you plan to stroll the mall or stand for a long time, but these sporty shoes can look plain -- even masculine. When shopping for sneakers, look for shoes that have girlie touches or pair plain sneakers with a feminine outfit to soften the look. No matter your age or personal style, you can express your femininity with a stylish outfit that includes sneakers. Buying shoes in traditionally feminine colors such as shades of pink is a simple way to achieve this look.

Things You'll Need

  • Lace shoe strings
  • Colored shoe strings
  • Lace-edged socks
  • Dress
  • Scarf
  • Handbag
  • Black and white dress
  • Pink scarf
  • Turquoise flower pin
  • Colored jeans
  • Fitted T-shirt
  • Military-inspired blazer
  • Colorful shoe laces
  • Fitted vest
  • Cropped shorts
  • Ruffled shirt

Replace the laces in your shoes with lacy ties or complementary colored strings. The laces should be long enough to tie them in a dressy bow at the top near the ankle or at the bottom, near the toes.

Pair your sneakers with lace-edged socks. Wear socks that have a feminine pattern on them -- hearts, for example.

Pair sneakers with a dress, scarf and casual handbag. Take a monochromatic, or black and white, approach to your outfit. Wear black sneakers with a black and white dress. Add a pop of color with a bold pink scarf, or a turquoise flower pin for your purse.

Mix feminine and masculine wardrobe touches for a fashionable outfit. Wear colored jeans with a fitted T-shirt. Complete the look with a military-inspired blazer and tomboyish sneakers. For feminine touches, replace boring sneaker laces with bold colored laces and wear a fitted vest over your T-shirt.

Dress casually with cropped shorts, a ruffled shirt and a pair of sneakers.

Tips & Warnings

  • Shoes with a touch of glitz, like sequins or sparkle, look stylish and feminine.
