As we ride the wave of winter, it’s easy for us to focus on the boots of the season. We’ve given a lot of time to the function and ease of a great pair of boots, from ankle skimmers to thigh-high beauties. But our favourite celebrities keep reminding us just how relevant trainers remain to be even in these cooler months.
Right now, you’ve probably noticed a few trends in the trainer world. Colourful trainers are having a real moment with Sambas and Gazelles becoming increasingly vibrant. New Balance continues to be a fashion-follower favourite and Onitsuka Tiger’s yellow trainers have taken instagram by storm. The glory of trainers is truly in their versatility. They’re comfortable, easy to wear, and even easier to style. You can wear them all year round, from tracksuit days to summer holidays, with maxi dresses or miniskirts, but right now with the weather as it is, many style setters are opting for trousers to showcase their new kicks.
Jeans are an easy option when considering trousers to pair with your trainers, but there’s plenty more styles out there to choose from. Sofia Richie selected trending cargo pants to create a tonal head-to-toe look. Laura Harrier’s wide-leg trousers take on the trending silhouette of 2024. For those looking for a smart-casual option, Gigi Hadid paired a denim with tailored trousers that work just as well for the airport as for the office.
