Ever since sneakers hit the catwalks, it seems this previously uber-casual item has become a style staple.
Sneakers should be on every woman’s ‘basics’ list for spring/summer style. Why? Aside from being incredibly functional (hello, running for the bus without twisting your ankle!), sneakers have become the go-to fashion item for casual chic.
And unless you’re pairing them with lycra, there’s no need to worry about looking like you’re heading to the gym.
A sneaker for every occasion
For spring and summer, sneakers are even more functional, with so many outdoor activities on offer. Perfect for casual day at the office, an outdoor barbecue or picnic, or even if you’re trying to up your step count each day – with the right pair you can be assured you’re getting there in style.
Get to the café, the shops, the park or to work in style (and speed!) with any of the numerous new sneaker styles in season.
Sneakers to suit your style
A simple white lace-up is a great choice with casual pants or denim, but sneakers have quietly crept into the fashion lexicon so smoothly that you can even pair them with a pretty day dress or skirt.
Sneakers are no longer just the plain old runners we used to wear to the park, there’s so many styles available. From high-top to low-top, slip-on and trainer, there really is a sneaker style to suit everyone. And if you think it’s outrageous to pair sneakers with a skirt, well, you just haven’t found the right match yet. Slip-ons are particularly perfect for a skirt pairing.
Team high tops with ripped denim for an edgier look, or low tops with shorter pants or a casual dress for chic femininity. You can even pair one of the more neon styles of trainers with black pants for a cutting edge look.
Sneakers are one of those new fashion trends that benefits anyone with a foot or ankle problem – no-one need know you’re going casual for comfort. Everyone will think it’s the fashion – because it is.
