We Heart Keds: Steal Our Editors' Flippin' Adorable Looks!

Maybe it's all the Olympics hype or the just-passed patriotic holiday, but this summer has us grooving to an all-American vibe. So, we called upon Keds to grace our newly minted R29 Shops with a just-for-us boutique filled with their brand-new prep-inspired dresses, tops, and shorts — all of which are just as true blue and timeless as that eponymous white Champion sneaker. Even our editors Connie, Brenna, Katie, and Shani couldn't wait to get in on these classic duds.
Click through to check out how each lovely lady fashions American-chic — inspired by their own cities — with their own Keds apparel outfits. (Hint: They're all adorable!)

"I am a navy-blue addict, plus I love a face-framing collar and empire-waist silhouette, so this little floral dress is pretty much perfection. It's so easy but also makes a bold statement, so it doesn't need much accessorizing. I just added my matching Bottega Veneta monogrammed bag and my relatively hill-friendly boots by local S.F. label Tsubo."

"I love the idea of mixing prints, and these shorts are extra sweet for two reasons: They have a scalloped hem (so cute) and have little K's printed on them (hello initials)! Throw my favorite Claire Vivier x Refinery29 clutch into the mix, plus a military jacket to beat the after-4 p.m. fog, and this look is fit for an S.F. Summer."

“I'm not usually a dress kind of girl, but the scattered book prints were too amazing for me to pass up. I played up the schoolgirl theme with an apple-red satchel and vintage numeral espadrilles. A+, no?”

“While mixing stripes seems hard, it's really not: The bold red stripes complement the thin pinstripes pretty perfectly. The swingy trench coat gives the two casual pieces an International Woman of Mystery vibe.”

“This waist-cincher is perhaps the most flattering dress I've tried on all year! And even though you wouldn't normally think of plaid as particularly 'sexy,' the open back adds some leave-only-a-little-bit-to-the-imagination oomph! That's what keeping it classy in L.A. is all about."

—Brenna Egan, L.A. Editor

“I'm a such a sucker for seersucker! But, I would never consider my style (or Cali's for that matter) preppy or buttoned-up. I love that this collection offers some great prints to add a little funk. Plus, this shortsuit goes easy breezily from an important meeting to painting the town — just add some wild platforms and sick baubles, et voilà!

—Brenna Egan, L.A. Editor

“I can't get enough button-downs, and the sleeveless option is huge this summer. I added a vintage sweater clip to my collar, which is a nice changeup from statement necklaces (They're also much lighter — bonus)."

“I think printed shorts are a must in Chicago during summer. It's so easy to get in a style rut with denim shorts, since it can get so sticky hot here. Printed shorts pair really easily with a great basic tank, and add a chambray shirt for breezy days. I paired mine with a big wedge for an extra height boost, but this will also look great with sandals.”

—Shani Silver, Chicago Editor
