T-shirts, shirts, tanks, cami will all look great when paired with high tops and the right matching bottom wear.
Keep the accessories to the minimum: Remember this is a casual outfit so there is no need to over accessorize the look. A simple cute necklace and a few bangles will be enough to finish off your outfit.

WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH SKINNY JEANS
This is the easiest and most popular way to wear high tops for any casual happenings for both men and women. Women and Men look great in skinny jeans paired with high tops for any casual outing.
Select a nice pair of skinny jeans and pair it with a sheer back top. Belt the skinny jeans with a matching thin belt and tuck-in the top to look smart, neat and organized. When the temperatures are chilly such as in winter or autumn, you can wrap a scarf around your neck to keep your neck area warm and throw on a biker’s jacket in black or brown.
Black high top sneakers will be the best shoes to finish off the trend. If you want, you can complement your getup with a simple medium size black shoulder bag and you will be good to go.
If you aren’t confortable with the first outfit of high tops with skinny jeans, try wearing your high tops with Knee Embellished skinny leg jeans. Pair the attire with a light cotton tank top preferable in grey or white. Grey will make the attire look more casual while white will add fancy appear to the trend.
To add more style to the attire, throw on a leopard fur coat which will keep you warm along the day. Accessorize with a gold-tone layered chain necklace, oversized dark sunglasses and an oversize handbag to make the apparel look more feminine. Finish the trend with High top wedge sneakers in black or leopard print and you will be good to go.
Try out rolled skinny jeans with white high tops. A rolled skinny jean in old navy or dark blue paired with a white pocket tee will create a perfect outfit for a romantic night out or when having a drink with your friends at the cafe. Add more romance to the attire by wearing a romantic, sexy galilee necklace and Pete earrings. Finish off with a matching cardigan and you will be good to go rock a romantic evening with your friends.
Fitted shirts and blouses are a great match with denim skinny jeans in old navy blue or dark blue colors. Choose a nice fitted shirt or blouse preferable in neutral colors (white, cream, grey) or dull colors like black and pair it with a denim skinny jean. You can tuck-in the shirt (blouse) and belt the skinny jean with a thin black belt or just leave the shirt (blouse) to sit over your skinny jeans depending on the style and look you want to create.
Keep your makeup to the minimum and accessorize with a few accessories so that they don’t overwhelm the look. Finish the attire with a small black handbag and black high top sneakers and you will be good to go. In case it’s a cold or chilly day, don’t forget your scarf and a jacket or blazer which will add warm to your getup.
WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH SHORTS
Well shorts are a must have and must wear when it comes to summer. Personally am a fun of shorts especially denim shorts and khaki shorts. Ladies can wear high tops with shorts to rock a trendy, sexy and romantic summer evening or weekend wear. Ladies can wear denim shorts with quite a variety of tops which include; tanks, cami, blouses, shirts, among others.
Choose a nice pair of High waisted denim shorts and pair it with a nice cami. Choose a cami which matches with the color of your denim short. For instance, denim blue shorts will look great when paired with white, cream or black camis while black denim shorts will look great when paired with white or cream camis. Wear a heart necklace, oversize brown sunglasses and a feminine watch. Finish the attire with High top converse in black and white.
Cropped tees in black or white will be a perfect match with track shorts. If you opt for a black cropped tee, wear it with a white track short and if your track short is black, grey or cream, black cropped tees will be the best choice to pair with it. Accessorize with oversize dark sunglasses, a watch and a cute necklace to make the apparel look more feminine.
Black and white high top sneakers will be the perfect shoes to finish off your attire. You can dress like this on a weekend when you are going to have lunch at your favorite restaurant or in the evening when taking an evening walk around town.
Tanks look cute and sexy when paired with shorts. Depending on the look you want to create, you can wear your pair of shorts with a sleeveless, short sleeved or long sleeved tank. Sleeveless and short sleeved tanks will make your attire look sexy and cute while long sleeved tanks will make the attire look more attractive and adorable.
You may tuck-in the tank to make the apparel look neat and sexy on you or just leave it to sit over your shorts. High top sneakers or converse in black, white or cream will definitely match with the trend. Oversize sunglasses and a few armlets will be enough to finish off the outfit.
WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH TIGHTS
Sometimes, you might want to do some exercise to make your body physically fit. High top sneakers or converse are among the most comfortable footwear which you can wear during your exercises. You can wear them when going to the gym, when going for a dance class (practice) or when jogging in the morning or evening.
When exercising (irrespective of the type of exercise you are doing), you need to wear clothes which will fit you with ease so that they flatter your body shape. Don’t wear too baggy (loose) attire and again not too tight clothes. I like wearing yoga pants and other kind of tights which look and fit like yoga pants with high top sneakers when am going out for jogging or dance practice.
You can wear your High top sneakers or converse with tights and a matching top. Sleeveless light tanks in neutral colors will be the best choice as they will easily allow heat to be diffused out of your body so that your body cools faster.
Pair the attire with black white high top sneakers and I would recommended updos for your hair to keep it safe and secured in place.
Well, I spotted some ladies wearing tights such as (leggings and Jeggings) with high top sneakers on weekends when going for shopping. You too can style high tops with tights for your weekend casual occasions other than wearing them only for workouts or exercise. Don’t forget your shopping bag and a simple female shoulder bag to make the attire look more feminine and you will be good to go.
Jeggings can be worn independently with high tops while leggings (especially thin transparent leggings) can be worn underneath shorts, miniskirts or short dresses with high tops. Try to make the attire unique by pairing it with a polka dot shirt or blouse. Choose nice pair of Jeggings or leggings in black and pair them with a nice fitted polka dot button down shirt or blouse.
A tunic in animal prints such as leopard or zebra prints can as well be paired with black Jeggings or leggings to look cute. Pair the outfit with white high top sneakers to match with the patterns in the polka dot shirt or blouse. If you opt for a leopard printed tunic, pair the attire with brown high top sneakers and you will be good to go.
WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH DRESSES
Dresses look great on medium size ladies and slender women. If you are a plus size lady, don’t opt for this attire coz the dress must be 2-3 inches above your knees to show off some legs (thighs) to make your attire look sexy and attractive. I would recommend wearing white-black stripped dresses such as zigzag crochet knit mini dress or polka dot mini dresses.
Choose a nice polka dot mini dress or zigzag crochet knit mini dress and pair it with high top black sneakers. Well, you can wear white high top sneakers with this attire but personally I would prefer black coz it look great on me.
Accessorize with nice short earrings, cute short necklace and a few armlets to make your apparel look more feminine. Complement the attire with a knitted jumper and you will be good to go.
WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH SKIRTS
Quite frankly I’m not a fun of skirts, but for those who love wearing skirts with high tops read this section till the end. Min skirts (skirts slightly above the knee) or maxi skirts with long slave (passed your knees) will be the best skirts to wear with high top sneakers.
Choose a nice miniskirt or maxi skirt with a long sleeve and wear it with a nice matching fitted top. Personally, I would opt for black skirts and match them with either white, cream or grey tops such as tees, tanks or blouses. You may tuck-in the skirt to look smart and neat or just leave it sit over your skirt depending on the look you want to create.
Accessorize with dark sunnies, cute short necklace and a few armlets to make your apparel look more girlish. Finish off with a matching medium size handbag and black-white high top converse or sneakers and you will be good to go. You can dress like this when going to work on weekends or when going for shopping in the evening.
WEAR HIGH TOPS WITH OVERALLS OR DUNGAREES
You might be wondering how you can wear high tops to work on a working day. If your work involves wearing overalls or dungarees, try wearing them with high top sneakers. Match the color of your sneakers with the dungarees so that the attire looks fabulous. For instance, if your dungarees or overall is black or dark blue, pair it with black high top sneakers and if your dungarees is grey or white, pair it with grey or white high top sneakers respectively.
Accessorize with a short cute necklace and a feminine watch to make your getup look unique, personal and stylish. For a glamorous outfit, leave the last upper buttons of the dungarees unfastened and if it is a zipper dungarees, zip it up around your chest (breast area) and finish off with oversize brown sunglasses. You are done and good to go rock a trendy, stylish and glamorous look in high tops with dungarees at work.
