When you think of Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers, you think of casual outfits that are laid-back, cool, and hip. The word sexy will probably be far from your mind. However, Candice Swanepoel managed to change all that over the weekend.

For her flight to the West Coast, the leggy Victoria Secret angel slipped into a pair of light-wash jeans and a very simple white t-shirt. But here’s the thing, while the jeans were ripped and uber casual, they were low slung. The top was also cropped, so the blond beauty basically showcased her taut abs. Candice punctuated the mix with white Converse Chucks, some blue-lens sunnies, and a yellow-gold snake-print bomber jacket. Her hair was set loose and wild, and she wore barely-there makeup. All in all, you could say “casual” (and Chuck Taylor sneakers) never looked so sexy.

Wow. She looks smoking hot, yes?

That’s proof that you don’t have to be in your undies to look sexy. Sadly, not every girl can rock this look simply because your tummy has to be toned to actually pull it off. No, you don’t have to be slender like Candice, but you do need to look like you’ve got something to flaunt, right?

In any case, it is an outfit worth considering, especially if you’re fond of wearing sneakers. Candice’s Chucks are the ones made in canvas instead of leather. They’re your classic sporty kicks, and you can find them practically anywhere, be it online are in stores. They retail at an easy $45.

Now if you’re thinking of grabbing Candice’s airport style, here’s something I cooked up that won’t break the bank. Every piece I chose to come up with the look retails well below $100, so you can easily afford recreating Candice’s style for less:
