Traditionally, when you think of a suit, your Converse and Nikes are the last shoes you would consider to pair with it. However, trading in your dress shoes to rock your suits with sneakers can create a fresh new look.

Since sneakers already offer a unique twist to your suit, keep with the theme when it comes to your accent pieces.

Opt for a patterned shirt or bold tie that will emphasize your modern take on business wear. For an added bit of class, also throw on a vest or chain.

Color also matters.
 
White sneakers work well when it comes to complementing a suit.
However, there's one easy way you can ruin this look: choosing to wear your old, dirty white shoes. 
Don't commit this fashion faux pas.
When you lack a bright pair, your look instantly goes from stylish to dowdy.
  
Using natural cleaning products works best at maintaining bright whites because they get the job done without causing additional damage.

Another useful tip to make your sneakers blend with your suit is to pick a matching color. This will add an interesting texture without becoming a distraction from the rest of your outfit.

However, if showing off just how well your shoes complement your suit is your goal, the length of your pants can help. Cutting your dress pants off above the ankle will draw more attention to your sneakers.

Taking the time to find the perfect shade is worth it.

This benefits you by making your legs appear longer and your body look taller overall.

The only problem is that wearing a solid color can get kind of boring.

Picking sneakers with an interesting pattern quickly provides pop to your suit.

Macklemore may have been the first to "take your grandpa's style," but that doesn't mean you can't also rock the old-fashioned look.

However, to recreate this look, it's not likely that hitting the thrift store or having "$20 in your pocket" will get you very far.

After all, the look above follows more of a high-fashion approach. The purposeful neutral tones of the suit make those nearly $900 Balenciaga shoes the main focus.

The length of your pants is not the only way to regulate how much you show off your sneakers. You should also consider how tight the style of your pants are.

When it comes to wearing suits with sneakers, don't make the mistake of pairing a wide-legged pant with thin shoes. Your sneakers will quickly be swallowed up by your trousers.

When you grab the tighter sneakers from your closet, also choose your tighter pants.

In addition to creating a clean line, tapered dress pants also mimic your favorite blue jeans.

This helps to complete the suits with sneakers crossover look by dressing it down.

Also consider what else you pair with your suit. Instead of wearing a dress shirt, try a plain t-shirt.

Just like a suit doesn't need to be paired with dress shoes, it doesn't require that you wear the coat either.

Ditching your suit's heavy coat will give you a more relaxed overall look.
