3 Ways to Wear the Annie Sneaker / ABLE x Annie F. Downs
ABLE x Annie F. Downs collaboration insight from ABLE Fashion Director, Jordan:
Back in the day, at the very start of ABLE, Annie actually worked from our offices. Needless to say, we LOVE her here. She is a dear friend and has been a cheerleader of the brand from the very beginning.
Annie is someone who wears ABLE in her day-to-day life, and she always likes a touch of something unexpected (or, FUN) – glitter, confetti, leopard... you get it. So when we designed products with her, we took that essential ABLE functionality and added a pop of creativity.
The Annie Sneaker was inspired by all the leopard print that Annie was already incorporating into her wardrobe. We used an existing ABLE style and one of our favorite materials in that leopard print to make something that's bold but easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.
The one good change that came out of 2020? Joggers are now acceptable at all times, not just on the weekends – especially when you really jazz them up with cool accessories. The denim jacket elevates this look a little bit while still keeping it functional and easy, and the Annie Sneaker provide the perfect pop of print to make this outfit a little more fun.
Your everyday, go-to's are immediately elevated with a touch of leopard. The staple jewelry pulls together your favorite denim and sweater, and the Annie Sneaker is polished enough to pair with that pulled together look.
Leopard is actually a neutral and totally works to pattern-play off of the Nico because of the neutral tones and distance between the prints. This look is comfortable enough to wear on the weekends, but is also perfectly pulled together and playful enough for a girl's night out.
