The only real pair of trainers I own are for running and they’re covered in mud (I went through a running phase) so lets not take any notice of them. An impulse purchase a few months ago of some slip on trainers from topshop meant for running errands in however, may have been the start of a new era. I have worn them almost to death with my leather leggings and jeans everywhere from the dentists to events for beauty brands. What I am yet to get my head around though, is trainers and dresses worn together.
My style is quite classic and I often feel like I am just not ‘cool’ enough to pull off certain trends. Trainers and dresses is one of those; a trend that I refused to accept at first and am still having difficulty with. Whenever an occasion calls for dressing up even the slightest, I somehow always end up in heels. I don’t mind the discomfort but I have to suffer a huge wave of guilt when adding up my Uber spend the following morning. Despite not finding heels difficult to walk in or manage, I am one of THOSE girls that won’t walk long distances in them either. My Uber bill however is not my only motivator to wanting to embrace this trend- style is. And when the Style Guide on Farfetch is telling me Minimal Trainers are high fashion, I am GOING to listen.
The dress in these pictures are SO me but after reading the article on Farfetch, I wish I’d paired it with minimal trainers. The next time I wear this dress will be with trainers, it will bring down the girly factor and definitely make it more wearable. I needn’t strut around in heels and could instead wander around quite comfortably, probably significantly bringing down my monthly Uber spend. I’m off to find my perfect pair…
