Casual Tailoring

ZARA shirt
H&M trews
NIKE roshe runs

I've never really been a trainer kinda girl. I like pretty shoes. I wear heels as often as I possibly can, bad-ass boots in the winter and chic sandals in the summer. I haven't worn a pair of trainers (other than to the gym) since I was 14 and going through my Converse All Stars phase. So, when trainers arrived back on the fashion scene and I liked them I was slightly confused. The only thing I didn't like about the new trend was the price tag of a pair of Nike or Adidas kicks. Up to and beyond £100 for a pair of trainers?! It's against my programming to spend that much on a pair of... sensible shoes.

After a lot of lusting and debating over Roshe Run, Air Max and Stan Smith I discovered a loophole in the system. The children's section. Now, I don't have tiny feet by any means. But - to my surprise - Nike stock trainers in the kids' section up to a size 5.5. What?! At literally half the price of the adult's and almost identical designs, I snapped up a pair in a matter of seconds. 

Since they arrived on my doorstep I've worn them countless times. With black skinny jeans and a leather jacket for running errands, with tailored trousers and a crisp shirt (like this outfit) for a relaxed take on smart tailoring, and I even wore them to fashion week with a sharp burgundy suit. Oh I do love a versatile shoe. And the best part? They're freakin' comfortable.

Are you sold on the trainers-as-fashion-statement trend? Tell me how you style yours.
