So you know I showed you how to Just. Wear. Trainers in Autumn/Winter, well now I am back to show you trainers are just as bloomin’ awesome during the Spring and Summer months too.
Honestly I don’t think I’ve come across a gorgeous casual ensemble where I don’t think a pair of trainers haven’t looked utterly fabulous and given it an edgy look. Plus we all know they are ridiculously comfy to boot. Whether your go to outfit is a swishy skirt, playsuit or tea dress, believe me you should definitely give it a go.
There is nothing that screams summer more than a pair of crisp white plimsoles, and of course the ultimate in white canvas has to come from the pump giants Converse, and their Classic Chuck Taylor All Stars. I’ll be honest and say the thought of somebody making their brand new white trainers dirty sends me in to a cold sweat, but if you prefer the lived in look as I know many people do, how about these grey versions instead?
Another pair of absolute classics every wardrobe should have are the Adidas Stan Smiths. Coming in a variety of tongue and cuff designs. The all white are certainly fail safe, but I do love the gold trimmed ones too.
If my boys were choosing my trainers, they’d convince me I needed a pair of Adidas Superstars. I remember wearing this style when I was younger, not totally convinced I could carry them off any more, although I do still love them and feel quite nostalgic seeing them in then shops.
I’ve developed quite an obsession with Nike trainers since the last Just. Wear. Trainers post, buying numerous pairs for myself and the family. My boys currently have the same size feet as me so if I’m totally honest some of the pairs I buy for them I’m actually hoping I’ll one day get to wear as long as they don’t get totally wrecked.
My latest purchase for my son Joseph are these black and white Air Max Thea’s (shh don’t tell him they are ladies). Just look how sleek they are. Now if I was buying a pair just for myself I think I’d have to go for the melon colour. Mmm delicious.
Charlotte can also be seen wearing these grey Internationalist trainers. They look super comfy and I love the moulded waffle detail.
I must confess I’ve never really considered owning a pair of Vans, my Nephews who used to love skate boarding on the other hand wouldn’t be seen in anything else when they were younger, but It wasn’t until I saw a friend sporting a rather adorable pair I was reminded about them and decided to check out their offering. I was rather pleasantly surprised to discover these adorable Pink Lady Hearts and Rainbow White pairs.
I am still lusting after a pair of New Balance trainers, I absolutely adore their retro style, and these blue hued 247 ones look like the perfect summers day sky, with the 373 navy and silver ones replicating a warm summers evening under the stars.
As always we’ve love to know what your favourite trainer(s) and summer outfit(s) is(are) and which pumps you’ll be sporting during the hotter months?
