Just about everyone is looking to master the art of that coveted, California-cool style. Shoppers are tirelessly looking for the right balance between effortless and elegant. Fortunately for Us, we too can master the art of cool-girl styling with a little help from one of our favorite stars, Selena Gomez.

The sneaker lover’s equivalent to a white T-shirt? A staple sneaker.

Fashionistas everywhere will be the first to admit that a staple sneaker is an error-proof way of instantly upgrading any outfit. The Puma Cali sneakers are the sleekiest pair of kicks on the market. They will instantly elevate any outfit from day-to-night and can be seamlessly styled with dozens of outfits.

These truly are the perfect addition to any and every ensemble. We aren’t alone in our feelings. Reviewers simply cannot stop raving about this sneaker! Many reviewers loved how the sneaker is not only traditional but trendy. They’re also absolutely loving the progressive brand logo on the back of the shoe. Additionally, reviewers loved that the sneaker’s slight platform gave them just enough height. The platform is not too low, yet not too high and reviewers couldn’t stop raving about it!

They’re not the only ones who love these sneakers! Selena Gomez shared a photo on Instagram in January wearing this exact pair!

The Puma Cali sneakers were carefully constructed to perfection and have a design that is not only sleek but soft. The sneaker includes a perforated vamp and features a foam-padded collar and tongue, cushioned sock liner and special textile lining. That means these kicks are basically a foam mattress for our feet. With each and every step, we will not only feel like we’re on Cloud Nine, but it’ll as be as if we are walking on it.

We truly cannot think of anything better. Actually, we can: The trio of shades available which include all black, white with black details and black with white details!

Our personal favorite is without a doubt the white/black option, for no other reason than it gives the best of both worlds and provides endless styling options. Speaking of styling, we’re turning to the Puma ambassador herself to find styling inspiration.

Gomez is the ultimate girl-on-the-go and her style reflects no differently. We recommend pairing the Cali sneakers similar to Gomez with a solid black sports bra, high-waisted solid black leggings and topped off with a bomber jacket. Looking for an edgier ensemble? Trade in the bomber jacket for a sleek leather jacket. The white/black shade will contrast nicely with the all-black ensemble, giving it a much-needed pop of color.

We could also wear with a full denim look just like Gomez and instantly nail that cool-girl look.

Seeking a more wearable look? Shoppers should reach for a printed minidress and top off with the same sleek leather jacket. This ensemble will not only be unexpected but will definitely get us compliments! Let’s also point out that this styling can be used on any and all of the available shades. Whoever said one size fits all didn’t know this fashion formula!

The Cali sneakers are the ideal piece since they can effortlessly and seamlessly transition from season-to-season. Unlike traditional sneakers, the platform heel gives outfits instant elevation (no pun intended) which makes these sneakers perfectly acceptable for a casual night out! We’d personally recommend opting for the darkest shade in that case, which would be the black/black.

Shoppers looking for a chic yet casual look? Try pairing the black/black sneakers with a leather miniskirt, a graphic crop t-shirt and knee-length cardigan. Not feeling the cardigan? Opt for a leather jacket and we’d recommend finishing it off with a cross-body bag!

We could go on and on about how amazing these platform sneakers truly are but it’s best left to the reviewers on why these shoes are a must-have for any sneaker-lover. One reviewer said these chunky Cali sneakers are so amazing, that we can’t go wrong with any of the selected shades and we agree!
