How to Style Canvas Shoes this Summer

Canvas shoes are an all year-round sneaker and are more especially enjoyed in the summer months. These sneakers, much like jeans, are a must-have inclusion to your wardrobe. They add so much versatility to your wardrobe and are the perfect blend of comfort and street classic style. These sneakers can be worn with just about anything. Whether you’re going for an ultra-casual look or something closer to smart-casual, we’ve put together a guide on how to style canvas shoes this summer.

Summer Looks with Canvas Shoes

Here are three ways to wear your canvas sneakers this summer.

With Denim



Canvas shoes are a perfect footwear option to wear with denim. In warm weather, it’s best to look for jeans with a comfortable or loose fit. Light-wash denim pairs well with shoes in any colour, especially statement print sneakers like the Converse All Star Chuck Taylor '70 Ox Lo Grey Digital Camo. Complete your look with solid colour T-shirts in white or black or go a bold logo print Tee. Grey denim is another good choice to wear in summer, they work well with T-shirts, golfers and shirts. Black sneakers like the ellesse Corso Sneaker Jet Black as a great match. Dark-wash and black denim can also be worn all year long, working well with white sneakers or brighter colours in the summer. Jeans can be rolled up to ankle height for a low-key, casual summer look.

With Shorts



Shorts and canvas sneakers are a definite match, especially denim shorts around knee height. These versatile shorts pair well with any colour sneakers. Try a pair of Vans or Converse in bold to see colours just how well the two go together. Pair your shorts with a solid or patchwork colour T-shirt for a super casual look. For a smart-casual look, wear a golfer or shirt and add a belt to your shorts if you wear your shirt tucked-in. Great sneakers to wear with denim shorts are Converse All-Star, both the low-top or hi-tops work, check out the range in black, white, maroon or bright sunflower yellow.

With Cargo Pants



Cargo pants are as versatile as jeans. These can be worn like jeans, rolled up at the ankle. Typically worn as casual pants, it’s best to stick to a casual look. You pair them with either hi-tops or low-tops and top them off with a branded T-shirt with a jacket on cooler days. Why not try out an old-school look with a twist with a pair of Vans in stand-out prints, like the Vans Era Black True White or Vans Old Skool Korean Typography Racing Red Black. Classics like the adidas Sabalo are also always a winner with cargo pants.
