Sneakers have become a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. You have the classics, embellished, sporty and now the ‘ugly’ from brands like Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton.
What’s the appeal? Many styles have been upgraded with an exaggerated moulded sole that deliver a dramatic silhouette and also help elongate your legs. Keep the palette neutral for a modern feel but if you want to channel the 90’s nostalgia, look for bright flashes of colour.
Paris Fashion Week was packed with sneaker-wearing fashionista’s clearly preferring comfort but still with plenty of cool, and we have selected some of the best ways you can style these lace up shoes now. Tailoring is a popular choice, the contrast of boardroom and casual really works, especially if you go for an oversized fit. Add a sporty touch to feminine dresses and flowing skirts or give it streetwear feel by choosing denim or track pants.
