I don’t know about you, BUT my heels don’t get much of an outing these days!
Luckily for ALL of us that’s OK because sneakers (or as we call them in the UK ‘trainers’) are having a bit of a fashion moment!
Wearing trainers used to be saved for busy commuters, dog walkers or gym-goers, but it’s fast becoming the staple ‘IT shoe’ for every occasion!
Now, the right trainer will raise your style stakes…whatever your age!
Let me inspire YOU how to ROCK the world just like a top fashion blogger!
Read my simple style tips below that promise to keep you looking effortlessly stylish, wherever you’re going!
Adding a POP of colour to an all black outfit is sometimes all you need to upgrade a casual look…a little brightness goes a long way in elevating a simple outfit!
If you’re colour shy, start with a neutral shade to prep your trainer confidence! Try; navy, beige, white or grey.
So go BOLD all over or just play with a flash of colour – depending on how brave YOU feel!
Whether you’re wearing a midi skirt, culottes OR jeans, you can be sure to find a trainer style that complements your outfit.
For knee-length skirts or ankle jeans, opt for a low rise trainer to make your legs appear longer. High-tops come in TWO forms, thin vs chunky – and can be worn with skinny jeans, skirts or leggings!
Thin high-tops work best with trousers wider at the bottom (let your skin peep through) and don’t lace to the top, tie loosely in the middle for that casual look! Thick high-tops can be rocked with miniskirts OR tucked into skinny jeans – these kicks take ALL the attention!
Your trainers are given an EXTRA edge when you wear them with a few bracelets, a blazer or a structured bag.
The accessories really help complete the look – and nobody will mistake you for heading down the gym!
Add any accessory piece you want from chic and timeless, to fun and edgy – and ROCK these with your new comfy shoes along with the latest fashion bloggers, models and celebs!
It’s time to put away those blister plasters and totally give your look a NEW (and comfortable) edge!
Whether you’re running errands or meeting up with friends, make sure you’re riding this fashion wave – trust me, it’s NOT one to miss!
And if in doubt – from preppy to rocker, young to old – a pair of converse goes with everything, it’s basically the jeans of the trainer world! So if you’re new to this trend, it’s a great place to start!
The key to rocking this look is making it appear as if you meant to put the trainers on as part of your outfit! So make sure you have a pair ready for an outing (other than your running shoes!)
Get ready to style up your look (and feet!) like a bona fide fashion blogger!
So KICK back, and enjoy the versatility and beauty of the simple trainer.
