Remember when sneakers were only for sport and plain in style and colour?
I understand they aren’t the shoe du jour for everyone; it is difficult to rid our minds of a look that was considered pretty unattractive not that long ago; something akin to money belts worn on the outside of tracksuits? Never winning. I am giggling as I conjure up images of tracksuits, sun visors and money belts taking a spin.
Fashion is a fickle thing.
Ok, having said that, I am buying in.
I have been wearing the white Stan Smith Adidas style for ages with just about everything and I have graduated from all black Nikes, through the greys to a pair with a touch of gold.
Recently the colours are expanding, the pastels coming forward and I’m feeling brave enough to try. It is my year to be “Brave” so this is an easy win.
Want to join the sneaker revolution? Start slowly with subtle colours and work upwards to the more dramatic styles. Wear them with pants and then try with your dresses.
What is a winning look with a sneaker? I will always say the same thing; a man style blazer and pants, worn together with a soft grey or peach pair. Try, once you do I promise it will be hard to turn back. xv
