In recent years, consumers have been making their feelings towards fast fashion known, as searches around sustainable fashion and longer-lasting products have all been on the rise. Brands and their manufacturers have had to collaborate, adapt and evolve with this trend, moving away from the rapid turn-around of continuous new products for daily trends and focusing instead on crafting high-quality, versatile products that customers can invest in to build a complete wardrobe collection.
Versatility is key for building a wardrobe of sustainable and high-quality essentials. In fashion, finding a shoe that works with a range of different outfits is invaluable. Not only is that shoe a saviour when it comes to luggage allowances on a trip, but it also helps to complete a collection where tops, bottoms and shoes can be endlessly interchanged for new looks! Now that consumers are seeking out these versatile products, it is no surprise that white trainers have had such a surge in popularity over the last year, across high street brands and design houses worldwide!
Here Daniel Footwear shares easy ways to incorporate white trainers into your summer wardrobe.
Summer Dresses – Effortlessly Stylish
White trainers are a great choice to style with summer dresses. Despite the casual and athletic origin of trainers, they have evolved significantly, and now when paired with any type of elegant, statement, casual or feminine summer dress, they ooze effortless style.
Trainers are particularly ideal for outdoor summer gatherings when you want to dress up, but also be prepared for imminent games or activities, and would therefore require a shoe with more support than a heeled wedge or flip flop!
White trainers work for dresses because their light colour helps them to appear soft and subtle but equally stylish, particularly when matched with accessories in white or light neutrals – and they can be teamed with any colour dress without clashing.
Office Wear – Smart Casual Chic
White trainers and a suit would have been confined to the commute before a quick swap to heels in previous years, however, now the combination is celebrated for its ability to relax the outfit.
Blazers have been through their own style journey over time and are no longer bound to the office, but instead favoured for stylish social events to pull together an outfit.
When combined, the tailored blazer, crisp white blouse and stylish but relaxed white trainers create the ultimate smart casual look – which can be utilised anywhere from the office monthly meeting to outdoor brunch with friends.
Leggings – Casual Fashionable
Although pairing leggings with trainers is not a new style trend, it has evolved from convenience into fashion as both products have been transformed by designers into statement pieces in their own right.
The combination is a classic, reliable outfit choice for a huge range of summer activities because it strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style.
There are now endless options for both on both a high street and designer level – making it a style that really is suitable for everyone once they’ve found their go-to blend!
Athleisure – Understated Style
Athleisure has risen to the spotlight recently, which is no surprise given the increase in home working and more relaxed dress standards in society. The versatile pieces that could just as easily be seen in the gym or out at the shops are now commonplace among brands and do not seem to be on the way out anytime soon!
Trainers are the perfect choice to finish off this look, pulling together the blend of sportswear and easy style. White trainers are ideal because they really can work with any coloured set, from summer-inspired pastel fits to a classic black combo.
These outfits are favoured for on-the-go days with tasks to complete so a pair of comfy trainers that also happen to complement the coordinated set is a no-brainer!
It is easy to see that white trainers really can be used across the span of your wardrobe, and make a great choice when selecting your wardrobe essentials this summer. Daniel Footwear sells a huge range of white trainers, including those demonstrated in the imagery – they are a great destination for finding luxury, quality footwear staples.
