    Default Converse with suit look

    Does anyone know this look? I love it and I'm going to but some black converse hi tops and wear my navy work suit with them.
    Do u think it will look good for a girl?or it's only a men's look?? Need comfy shoes and though the converse would be good!
    Will attach a pic of men doing it..

    It's not for me. Converse, jeans and a blazer for a more casual workplace, sure. With a suit, no.

    Especially not black ones with navy!

    You mean the 'Ellen' look? I like it but I don't think I could ever pull it off myself! It's a bit too tomboy-ish for me. I think on a girl with shortish hair it could work though.

    I have a thing about black and navy being combined.

    I think you have to have a very trendy look to pull it off.

    Its not something I would do that whole tomboy look isnt my style.

    I'm a long time wearer of converse all stars. I do not think they work with a women's business suit.

    I wear them when I go for a walk at lunch with my work blouse and business pants (which are navy) and it doesn't look particularly stylish, kinda daggy.

    I think it can work on certain types of guys (your typical rock/punk looking guys) when they have to dress up. But on women it sometimes looks a little too tomboyish. Unless that's what you're going for then that's cool

    No I don't want to look like a Tom boy.. I don't have funky hair so that would just be normal with normal makeup so maybe it won't suit me
