White trainers are a staple in my wardrobe. They are a must have for the summer season to pair with little dresses for a casual day look or when in need for a more practical footwear option. These are my top picks for this season to suit your own style.
For the chic look…
Alexander Mcqueen: The oversized sneaker
Alexander Mcqueen are still conquering the chic white trainer look. The trainers have been the new ‘gucci belt’ fashion staple for the past year. These are the perfect trainers to pair with a little summer dress for a more casual yet classy look or pair with some skinny jeans to make your outfit look that bit more put together. Keep it simple with the black suede heel or opt for one of the brighter heels to add a pop of colour to your outfit.
For the casual look…
Gucci: Women’s Ace embroidered
These timeless trainers will always be in fashion. Instantly recognisable, these will make any outfit look more luxurious and thought about. I would pair them with some mom style jeans and a tight top tucked in or t-shirt for a casual, effortless look.
For the street chic look…
Valentino Garavani: Open sneaker in calfskin leather
These are perfect for those that wish to achieve the street style look but aren’t confident enough to buy the chunky trainer. The thickness of these trainer’s sole and the spikes round the back create a statement look. These trainers will make any simple outfit, bold.
For the street look…
Balenciaga: Triple S clear sole
For the chunky trainer lovers out there, this trainer is perfect for you! A chunky trainer is an incredibly bold clothing item which has to be pulled off right to look good. Pair with cycle shorts and an oversized t-shirt for that Kim K inspired look.
For the boho style…
Comme de Garcons x converse: 70s spotted canvas low top
These trainers are for those that love to wear plain little dresses or skirts. Paired with any kind of A-line/skater style skirt these canvas trainers will add a bit of fun to your outfit. They will also look great paired with a pair of blue skinny jeans and a graphic t-shirt.
For the new trend lover’s…
Veja: V-10 trainers
Veja is a brand that is up and coming. You may recognise these trainers from Instagram as many fashion influencers have been purchasing these for the summer months. These trainers are sustainable and ethical and will go with just about everything! They are incredibly versatile due to their simplicity. These are definitely ones to watch out for as I think they’re going to be the next big thing!
