I've been getting a lot of hits from Google on my Sperrys post, mostly from people who've Googled "how to wear sperrys". So I thought I'd come up with a little guide on how I wear Sperrys in the summertime!
In my opinion, Sperrys look really good with shorts. On a day where I'm not feelin' getting too dressed up, I pull on a pair of shorts, a polo shirt or a cute vintage graphic tee, my fake Ray Bans and my Sperrys. My school colors are maroon and gold, which aren't the most summery colors in the world. Instead of wearing my school colors, I usually get Loyola shirts in bright colors, like the ones pictured above, and wear them with shorts all summer. The jean jacket is also a must if it's a chilly day or, like me, you have to spend your summer in a chilly air-conditioned lecture hall.
These looks embody a classic preppy/nautical look, which I love in the summertime. If you want to wear jeans with your Sperrys, wear a pair of bootcuts instead of skinnys...wearing skinnys makes the shoes look a little clunky.
I wanted to try to make an outfit using a pair of non-traditional Sperrys, like the tangerine ones pictured above. I love the idea of pairing colored Sperrys with colored shorts and a simple top. In my head, the Sperrys look good with the skirts I pictured. Try it out and tell me how it goes!
