How We're Wearing Sneakers This Summer
“Sneakers? Not for me,” said no one, ever. Because if the past year has taught us anything, it's that comfort is of utmost importance. Which sneaker styles are we counting on this summer? Read on: your feet will thank us for it.
Not since ‘jeans and a nice top’ have we adored a denim pairing more than classic straight-legs worn with all-white sneakers. A tried-and-tested formula, it won’t win you any awards for dynamism – but we're all for looking chic without trying.
Concrete evidence of the fact that opposites attract: second-skin shorts and chunky trainers combine to fabulously retro effect – N.B. the fashion set’s focus on nineties off-duty staples shows no sign of waning. If Lycra’s not your thing, team high-waisted city shorts with an oversized blazer to counterweigh XXL footwear.
Fifty Shades of Pink
Fuchsia, salmon, rose… Summer’s blushing palette isn’t just for millennials. Go all Rothko; think tonal from toe to top (say, an iconic Balmain blazer), and combine sherbet-sweet hues – starting with your sneakers.
