Trouser Pants & New Balances - Trendy or Hideous?

Okay, so I’ve been seeing this style trend everywhere - trouser pants & new balance sneakers. First of all, when did dad sneakers come back into style and why is everyone pairing them with dress pants? This trend has grown in popularity over the past few years and influencers and tik tokers are loving this look, so naturally I had to try it out for myself.
I needed to know if this was another case of - Is it a fit or are they just skinny, so I bought a pair of beige trousers and new balance sneakers. If you’re curious about the exact outfit I put together, see the products below.
Trousers: Super High Waisted Pleated Wide Leg - $69.99
New Balances: New Balance 574 - $90
Top: Abercrombie & Fitch Cotton Seamless Fabric Tank Bodysuit - $39
To be completely honest, I was surprised how much I liked this outfit! It was classy, chic, and comfortable, which is all you can truly ask for. I love the play on the work & street sleek look and it was a quick and easy way to spice up my normal day to day. This outfit is great for day to night transitions and can easily be dressed up and down whether you are heading to work or just grabbing drinks with the girls.
I definitely think this is a trend, but both the new balances and the trousers individually will stand the test of time. Both items are so versatile that I have found myself pairing each with other styles and outfits since I tried this look.
