Sneakers are the go-to fashion staple to add a cool touch of tomboy to your look, whether you’re rocking shiny leggings or a summer dress. Basically, they’re the boyfriend jean of the footwear world.

But lately, there’s a trend-within-a-trend in the comfy shoe category that’s decidedly less sporty and more, well, girly.

Stan Smiths seem to be fading in popularity (gasp) as details like glitter, pom-poms, and bows are being embraced. Some new sneaker designs seem like they’re straight out of Carrie Bradshaw’s dreams. Seriously—even SJP herself just came out with a “sneaker” that’s so her Sex and the City character. And Rihanna’s experimenting with all sorts of satin and bows in her Puma line (including a platform sneaker-sandal hybrid) that are more princess than bad gal.

Whether you’re more of the ballerina type or prefer to rock pretty-in-pink hues, there’s a feminine shoe that lets your badass #girlboss self shine.

Now that you’re footwear’s taken care of, here’s the it-girl’s guide to pulling off bold leggings. Or you can opt for sweatpants, which just might be replacing your tight activewear bottoms soon.
