Converse are ubiquitous, adorable, and can be found on ladies from birth to 99! They come in all kinds of colors but the most beloved are white and black, and the high top Converse has its place in our hearts forever as well.

Dressed up, they are a statement of irony or independence or comfort before fashion, dressed down, they are the perfect touch to almost anything- skirts, dresses, skinny jeans, or shorts.

Without socks or with tights, at night or during the day, on the beach or at a club, Converse are a unifying shoe: everyone loves them. Worn on fashionistas like Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Sevigny and Kate Moss, they show up in magazines from Elle to US Weekly.

Converse have a beautiful American story, and I can’t say it better than they do themselves on their website:

Converse sneakers showed up in rock clubs, on the streets, on rappers, on icons, on rebels and originals. It became the sneaker of choice for individuals. From All Star to Jack Purcell to CONS, Converse doesn’t confine itself to one style or definition. Be who you want to be in Converse sneakers or clothes. An artist, rebel, rapper, thinker, gamer, skater, smoke jumper, freelance dentist, whatever. If you’re wearing Converse, you know who you are.”

So, without further ado, check out the cutest, most chic ways to put an outfit together around the famous and affordable Converse shoe:

    I’ve been a die hard Converse fan for going on 21 years now-I remember I got my first pair when I was 12-a maroon pair of chucks I paid for with my own money. BUT-as much as I adore chucks, one thing I’ve been complaining BITTERLY about for years and years is that Converse NEEDS to bring back the Converse 1 Star. Not the different ‘versions’ of it it has now, I mean the real Converse one stars. They were suede or canvass (though I preferred suede & that’s what you usually saw) & did not have a rubber toe. If you’re in your late 20s and older, you already know which style I mean I’m sure-if not, it was a style Kurt Cobain often wore (google Kurt Cobain one stars & you’ll see) to give a visual. Navy blue suede Converse One Stars were my trademark shoe for years and years. Ugh, Converse needs to bring them back!

  • I love to wear Converse, they are absolutely adorable, I really like these suggested ways to wear them, especially the one with a straight lined dress.
