Named for the American tennis player (yes, there is a real Stan Smith), the quintessential sneaker had a renaissance in the fashion world in the 2010s that’s still going strong well into 2023. With over 30 million pairs sold, multiple designer collaborations, and a slew of celebrity fans, it’s clear this is a shoe with a ton of enduring appeal. And what’s not to like? This perennial fave ($80 at adidas.com) is comfortable, affordable, and understated. The style is particularly great for spring: Its simple, versatile design can work with practically any outfit and the lightweight feel is perfect for being on the go outdoors, no matter where the day might take you. Below, we’ve rounded up twelve examples of perfect outfits to pair with your Stan Smiths this season.

Stan Smiths even work for a rainy day, when paired with a raincoat and umbrella like Meghan Markle, a longtime fan of the shoe. With Ripped Jeans and a Baseball Hat Getty Images Lucy Hale wore what might be the perfect "grabbing an iced coffee" outfit: ripped jeans, a tee, and a chore jacket. But it's the accessories — a Dodgers hat, a Dior saddle bag, and of course, Stan Smiths, that have her ready for wherever the day takes her. With a Striped Shirt Getty Images In many ways, a classic striped shirt is the clothing equivalent of white sneakers, as Courteney Cox demonstrates. It can be dressed up or down and looks clean and crisp, but is the perfect throw-on-and-go item. With Low-Rise Jeans and a Cropped Jacket Getty Images The timeless sneaker can add a touch of balance to an otherwise sexy outfit, like Cindy Bruna’s cropped leather and low-slung jeans. With a Travel-Ready Outfit Getty Images An ideal airport shoe, Stan Smiths look right at home at the airport with travel sweats, especially when layered with a chic camel coat like Zendaya’s. With Wide-Leg Pants Getty Images If you’ve moved on from skinnies, a wide leg works too! Sienna Miller’s slightly cropped trousers and pastel sweater give a slightly nautical vibe to the shoe.
