How to style trainers

 

Gone are the days when trainers were solely saved for athletic endeavours. Over the past few years, they’ve broken free from their gym-bag bounds and are now sweeping the street style scene as well as the runways. We’re calling it - sporty footwear is the cool choice for, well, pretty much everything. If you’re feeling inspired, take a browse below to get your fashion kicks.

Styling suits with trainers


To update your weekday wardrobe this year, try elegant suiting in traditional monochrome styles or pretty pastels (set to be a major trend for spring), and then add trainers. They may not be your go-to work footwear, but they'll provide the casual finish that heels are missing and keep your 9-5 look on the right side of dressed-up. A box-fresh white pair are easy and versatile but a coloured pair or a flash of leopard will freshen up a classic outfit. The best part? You'll be comfortable for a day on-the-go and look effortlessly cool.


“The trainer trend is here to stay. Dress down your favourite co-ords with these styles.”

 

 

 

Dress down your dress

 

Wearing a pair of trainers with a knockout dress was arguably the look of 2018, and for good reason. You get to look smart in a frock, but not too OTT, thanks to the addition of casual trainers. The trend is set to continue long into 2019, so try pairing some sporty kicks with a floor-skimming frock for the perfect antidote to feeling overdressed, or bring out the '90s vibes in your pinafore mini dress by adding a chunky-soled style. If dresses aren't for you, combine with a printed midi skirt and a soft knit for the same chic finish.


“Embrace flowing midis in statement prints and retro mini styles, then off-set them with trainers.”

 

 

Off-duty chic


For whatever’s on your weekend to-do list, trainers are the perfect comfy sidekick for everything from errand running to brunching. A classic trench coat looks effortlessly stylish when paired with something simple like jeans and a cream knit but steps into serious cool-girl territory when worn with fresh, chunky trainers. Alternatively, play up to the athleisure trend by teaming a sporty-chic trouser or a retro puffer jacket with your trainer of choice. Accessories and jewels should be kept to a minimum, as anything too fussy will counteract the cool vibe we're aiming for.


“All-white trainers look amazing with basics and minimal pieces, such as classic knits and black trousers.”
