Style Advisor: How To get Your Kicks

Now a fixture of every stylish woman’s wardrobe, the rebirth of trainers as appropriate smart and casual day wear was the answer to our aching feet’s prayers. Reimagined by some of the world’s most coveted designers, luxury sneakers combine haute design with comfort. What more could a girl want? Embellished, pearl-trimmed and glittering, this season’s offering is as pretty as it is chic, whilst being utterly practical. These are the kicks we'll be investing in this spring, courtesy of Gucci and Saint Laurent, and how to wear them.

EVENING METALLICS

Exercise your stylish right to wear trainers any which way you choose and dress your patchwork Saint Laurent sneakers up by pairing them with a metallic party skirt. Seen on every runway from here to New York, trainers are officially evening-appropriate. Tone it down but keep the impact with Gucci’s oversized sweat and an iconic YSL bag.

THE MINI SKIRT

Mini skirts and white sneakers are a match made in heaven. Feminine and slightly sporty, it’s the perfect outfit for showing off a pair of toned legs. Complete your look with a playful slogan sweater courtesy of Zoe Karssen (we’re all disco dolls, really) and Valentino’s beautiful Love Blade Bag.

DRESSED DOWN TAILORING

Azure hues are perfect for spring, guaranteed to lift your spirits and your style. For a look that is glossy but smart, team Gucci’s glittering bird print trainers with Saint Laurent’s iconic skinny denims and a tailored and embroidered shirt done up to the neck. Accessorise by tapping into spring’s chic white leather trend with the Fendi Dotcom Quilted Bag.

THE FAVOURITE JEANS

This is a T-shirt and jeans outfit, but not as you know it. Sophia Webster’s brilliantly white Bibi trainers are feminine and polished, perfect when worn with distressed denims, turned up to show of your shoes. Finish this laid-back but luxe outfit by throwing Fendi’s mini leather shoulder bag in a deep blue shade over your shoulder.
