New Ways to Wear Iconic Side-Stripe Vans

New Ways to Wear Iconic Side-Stripe Vans

This throwback is making a major comeback and if you haven’t seen it yet, trust us, you will. It’s the Vans Ward sneaker and you’ll know it by its iconic side stripe. This sneaker may look simple but with the right wardrobe pieces, it can make a statement that you’ll rock every day, everywhere.

Classic Black and White

The Vans Ward in this classic color combo makes a great basic with a ton of throwback flavor. But gone are the days of giving off a super skater vibe. Now, it’s all about adding a softer touch with more feminine accents. We love the look of this style when paired with a retro button-front jean skirt. Layer on a bright oversized scarf for a great transitional look for in-between seasons. Another way to update this classic look is to add a chic neck-tie scarf to a soft blouse and rolled-jean ensemble.





Bold Burgundy

Burgundy shoes have been trending in a major way over the past year and show no sign of slowing down. Work them into your wardrobe as a new neutral and great base for any casual outfit. This color looks great when paired with olive, and we love it with this distressed-hem denim, retro tee and utility jacket combo. When the temps warm up as we edge closer to spring, the Vans Ward is right on trend with a black jean skirt, striped tee and burgundy-accented cap.

Rosé All Day

Blush…Rosé…Millennial Pink…whatever you call it, this is the color that you’re seeing everywhere from fashion to cosmetics to home décor. So, naturally when you combine a top-trending shoe with a top-trending color, you destined to achieve near perfection—enter the blush Vans Ward. Keep your look simple and chic with a white tee, bandana tied at the neck and leopard clutch. Or go girly-glam with a floral-print tank, jean jacket and flowy shorts.
