How do I style my paperbag pants with sneakers

Every morning, women ask the same question. Do they prefer dresses, trousers or skirts today. Of course in summer the skirt or dress is more popular than skinny jeans but we have the perfect pants for all women who don't feel comfortable in dresses or skirts. The paperbag pants not only gives you a nice hourglass silhouette, but also a high waist and therefore longer legs. And you do not have to combine it with high heels or flat sandals! We show you that the paperbag pants fit with sneakers as well too!

Paperbag pants

Why is the paperbag called paperbag? There's a simple explanation. Because of the folding and lacing of the paperbag models, the trousers look like a paper bag. This creates the classic paperbag waist, which is a real figure-flatterer for every body type. Furthermore you can combine the paperbag pants as you like and they always look good! Here are our examples.

The cutie

First we have a super cute outfit to go with a linen paperbag. The colors are in summery earthy tones. Linen is especially good for the summer, because it feels cool on the skin and lets a lot of air through. Combined with this we see completely white Vans Old Skool. They are really white from the sole over the upper to the stripe on the side. A great shoe for the summer, because you can walk for a long time in it, you don't get hot feet and you look great. Due to the lack of colors you can really combine everything. And just like the paperbag, they are incredibly comfortable.

The sporty

You can also style a paperbag in a wonderfully sporty way. The high cut gives you a lot of mobility and combined with flat shoes, the combination looks great. You can also use a light denim fabric for paperbag trousers, as we see here. Again, white sneakers were chosen, but a bit more sporty, because they are like the Nike Court Royale Platform. The white sneaker is with its look a simple model, which can be easily combined and is great for everyday use. The short cut trouser legs draw even more attention to the shiny sneakers.

The old fashioned

A paperbag pant in vintage style. You have to let it sink in. By this example you can see wonderfully, these pants stretch the leg. With vintage clothes and a belt exactly in the waist the perfect retro outfit was created. Of course the cool sneakers are not missing. Here we have the Fila Heritage Disruptor M Low WMN (white). It is again a white sneaker, but this time with a completely different silhouette. The chunky sole, which we know from FILA, is of course not missing and we also get the sporty upper. The only colored element that stands out is the logo. A must-have in every wardrobe.


The cunning one

Simple, convenient and fast. With a paperbag trousers you can't really go wrong, especially with a sneaker. You can wear them in summer or winter. Short or long, with sweater or crop top. They enhance every outfit directly. A pretty smart pants we find. Of course it is especially smart to combine it with a comfortable and cool sneaker. Like the PUMA RS-X Softcase. With its soft pink and the soft upper, it is the perfect shoe for the whole day. With its color and soft case design it brings excitement, even in the most boring outfit and lets you shine. Extra plus point: The thick sole extends you by another centimetre.


The mom

Mothers have a stressful everyday life. So it's better not to worry about what to wear in the morning or whether it looks good, because a paperbag jeans always looks great! And if you combine it with a nice rainbow t-shirt you can start the day well. To add an extra splash of color to your outfit, we have the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Color in bright pink! The well known silhouette makes a very slim foot and therefore also a slim leg. The gaudy upper makes you really in a good mood! So you can start the day with élan.
