Statement sneakers to lust after
For the past few seasons, the great and the good of the fashion world have decreed that the humble sneaker has a place in every fashionistas wardrobe. In fact, editors and stylists alike have elevated the lowly trainer to such dizzying heights that every designer and high street store seems to be jumping on the bandwagon and sporting a sports shoe or two in their collections. And as with any fashion trend, there’s always a spot for a little bedazzling detail on top, so this season it’s time to say hello to statement sneakers.
This mass fashion frenzy augers well for those of us who are partial to a flat on any occasion, and particularly a comfy flat, as it seems we have now been given carte blanche to bung on our statement sneakers with just about any outfit. Heading for brunch with the fam? Pop on your pretty floral Superga kicks for a feminine take on the trend. Off on a date night? Work the smart/casual look by pairing your mixed texture Valentino sneakers with your pulling uniform. The statement sneaker has also become an acceptable accoutrement in the office – equally cute when worn with a prim pencil skirt or if you’re turned out in tapered pants.
