I haven’t written one of these posts in a while for two reasons. Number One – I am trying to appreciate all the things I already have in my wardrobe, and Number Two – as the season has changed, frankly there are too many things I want!
One essential item for my wardrobe at this time of the year is a pair of trainers. I have a few favourite ways to style the trainer – skinny jeans with a turn-up, boyfriend jeans with a slouchy top or a pencil skirt. My Lee Cooper version of Converse are well and truly worn out, they were never off my feet last summer and I have continued to slip them on any day I was prepared to get the ankles out!
I haven’t really been lured in by the 90’s trend – I lived through it and hated my wardrobe as a teenager so why go back?! That was until I nearly bought another pair of brogues – enough is enough (for now!), so the trainer search began!
Being a size 6/7 I can often look to the men’s section, where I found a really cute pair of Puma’s (I’m imagining the men who bought the trainer didn’t describe them quite like this!) – they were in the sale in ASOS and they were my first step into the 90’s trainer. They sold out pretty fast, so my search continued. And this is what I came up with…
As you can see most of my choices are light coloured, always my top tip for extending leg length (a must for me!).
Or maybe a little extravagance?!
Are you sold on the trainer trend?
