3 Types of Trainers Every Woman Needs

The ongoing popularity of streetwear and athleisure is having a huge impact on the footwear industry as trainers are set to be the shoe of the year. If you really aren’t into trainers and would rather walk around barefoot than in a pair of shoes designed for exercise then perhaps you just haven’t found the right pair for you. In fact, you shouldn’t just hunt down one pair that you love, every woman needs at least three essential pairs of trainers.

The Classic White Trainers

A pair of white trainers whether they be a traditional style or a pair of flat tennis trainers will become your go-to shoe when finishing off any outfit. The ways to style white trainers are endless, for a super casual look, jeans and a tee go perfectly with some crystal white kicks. For a more formal look, try pairing your white trainers with a blazer and pair of suit trousers, or a pair of cullotes for a super chic outfit.

Skate Trainers

Flat canvas trainers are perfect to style with a pair of mom jeans and a tee or a jumpsuit. They also look great with a pair of tailored trousers and a print tee for an edgier outfit. Best purchased in black or a dark colour so that they remain just as versatile as the classic whites. Your black skate trainers will become your best friend on days where white just doesn’t feel right.

Performance Trainers

A pair of performance shoes do not have to be left in your smelly gym bag all week, forgotten about and abandoned. Instead, they are exactly what you need for days when your feet need some extra support. Performance trainers are perfect for commuting, long days shopping or for when you want to get away with wearing your yoga gear out for coffee. They complete the perfect athleisure outfit and can also save your feet from nasty blisters on a heavy day. They look great with almost any outfit, whether it be a pencil skirt, jeans and a blazer or your gym pants.

You don’t always have to invest in branded trainers when updating your shoe collection. There are plenty of amazing trainers on the market that come with a lower price tag and look just as fab.
