If I’m being honest until recently I hadn’t ever been a fan of trainers, for a long time trainers were a shoe that should be sported while at the gym and only at the gym. But as more and more fashion icons are hanging up the Louboutins and reaching for a pair of flats, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon too.
I remember Adidas re-releasing the classic Stan Smith trainers back in 2014; with every single one of my friends sporting the classic white trainer, at the time I couldn’t think of anything worse. However, low and behold 5 years down the line, my white trainers are the shoe I’ve been reaching for most as of late.
It’s now the norm to see people wearing trainers day today, instead of just to the gym, a concept that baffled me for years! I was recently lucky enough to work with Cari’s Closet, who very kindly send me out a pair of their Roco Bee Trainer to try out and style. P.S They have a huge sale on at the moment – so head on over quick!
Your Wardrobe Staple
If white trainers aren’t something of a staple to you as the moment, I can assure you by the end of this post you will have changed your mind…at least I hope so!
White trainers should be a staple in anyones wardrobe all year round – being a versatile shoe, there really are no rules when it comes to styling. That and they pretty much go with any outfit ever.
Seeing as we are well and truly in the swing of winter, I’ve been loving styling my trainers with classic skinny jeans, and oversized jumper, paired with a thick teddy bear coat and a bobble hat – theres no way of me getting cold!
I think the main reason I never reached for trainers was because I thought they were very masculine. Heeled boots were much more my thing. However, I don’t fear that anymore, styled right they are the perfect accessory for a fashionista looking cool and comfy all at the same time.
It may have taken me 19 years to finally jump on the hype of trainers, but I’m so here for it – I think a new shoe obsession may have been ignited, not that my bank account needs that!
What are your favourite pair of trainers?!
All my love,
