T he classic white trainer has really made its way into women’s fashion over recent years. The growth of Instagram accounts such as @dresslikeamum and @themumdresscode, have paved the way for a new era of style known as ‘mum fashion’ and it’s become big business. Mums no longer have to feel frumpy at home in clothes that no longer fit because there’s whole genre of style out there dedicated to helping us look cool yet casual the school gate. The Classic White trainer is the epitome of this look and it’s no secret that my leopard print numbers from Boden are one of the favourite things in my wardrobe.classic white trainers
From the iconic Adidas Stan Smiths, to the white leather Espla trainers from Veja, there are so many takes on the classic, you’ll be sure to find a style that suits whether you’re a minimalist dresser or in the business of making statements. So what’s the best way to style a pair of classic white trainers?
Summer may be turning autumn in just few months, but white trainers can still still remain a staple part of your wardrobe if you team them with other classics such as the trench coat. Classic trench coats can be worn pretty much all year round and go great with trainers, especially white trainers because of the clean simple lines. I wear mine with a breton top and my favourite white trousers and it’s a really simple way to throw together an eye catching outfit.
The All-White Lookclassic white trainers
Pulling off the all-white look is all about confidence, but done right it can really turn heads and there are soo many ways to achieve it. White denim jeans and a plain white t-shirt work well together great if you’re looking for a more casual look, but equally a wraparound top with flowy trousers will look fab if you want to don something a bit more fancy. Whichever way you style the look, top it off with a pair of white trainers to complete the look.
With a pop of colour
Coloured trouser suits are perfect additions to your spring wardrobe. The Independent notes how this classic sixties look can be dressed up or down, depending on what you’re going for. Trouser suits exude professionalism but for a more casual look, trainers are the way to go. Pair a bold coloured two-piece suit with white trainers to balance everything out. Then you can finish it off with a white shirt inside to match.
Printed Midi Dresses
Another easy hit to wear with white trainers are printed midi dresses. The printed crinkled maxi dresses from Woman Within creates a lovely feminine shape through their light billowy skirts. But if you’re the type who doesn’t want too many “girly” frills, the trainers provide a good balance and a chic play on feminine flair. This is my go-to look for the spring and summer seasons.
Chunky Knit and Cropped Jeans
Moving into Autumn, a chunky knit with a pair of your favourite jeans is a really easy outfit to throw together, but when styled with a pair of classic white trainers, it suddenly looks crisp and fresh. A chunky knit exudes everything there is to love about the colder months of the year and the fresh white trainers will make you feel extra cosy.
Dungarees are the perfect outfit for lazy days and definitely something you need to have in your wardrobe for mornings when you can’t be bothered to spend ages getting ready. There’s no better way to pair slouchy dungarees than with some white trainers and your favourite t-shirt. Casual yet edgy, this is a key look when building a solid wardrobe.
