According to Nina Garcia, fashion guru, and my personal hero, Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are a must have. Throw them on with a skirt, pants, jeans, shorts, leggings and a dress, they can suit. And think about it, you can get them in nearly every color, different patterns, and even design them yourself. They're a great utilitarian shoe. They work in a pit, painting, walking, running to a sale (or from paparazzi) and they aren't too expensive. You put in laces with pink broken hearts and gray brass knuckles in the classic black and white low tops, and they are no longer Chuck Taylors, they are Andrea's Chuck Taylors. One of my favorite past times is designing different ones on the website, and then realizing nothing fits me like black and white low tops with some sort of pink and black lace. So go, PLAY!
