This Season, Ditch Your Heels For Trainers And Kicks!

This Season, Ditch Your Heels For Trainers And Kicks!

Thanks to the likes of Phoebe Philo, Miranda Kerr and Isabel Marant, trainers and kicks are super hot on our radar this Spring/Summer season; and we are looking way beyond the treadmill! With Phoebe Philo stepping out onto Celine catwalks in trendy trainers by Isabel Marant, wearing trainers in any occasion has become increasingly fashionable and acceptable. As Coco Chanel once said “Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love…” We totally agree with the fashion-guru, not feeling guilty as we occasionally ditch our heels and wiggle into a comfy pair of trainers for work.

Who says a pair of kicks can’t look hot with a cute dress topped with a blazer? This year, we are channelling our inner Miranda Kerr, pairing these stunners with our everyday outfit. How about a crisp white tee tucked into a pair of jeans with a pair of printed low tops a la Miss Miranda? Styled correctly, a pair of trainers can be incorporated into your work wardrobe as well. Whether you’re giving your feet a rest after a few days of hectic meeting runs, or you just want a bit of a change, slipping on a pair of trainers will give you a stylish sports luxe look with all the added comfort. Why not give it a try on a casual Friday?
