As an enthusiast of fashion and personal style, I can appreciate the endless parade known as “trends” even if I’m not always a fan of every next big thing.
I think most of us will agree that some trends are easy to fall instantly in love with…while others might take a bit longer to find their way into our hearts (cropped flares, I’m talking about you!!) But one trend that I really can’t stand – or understand! – is athletic shoes worn with absolutely everything!!
In my opinion, running shoes (or trainers or whatever you want to call them) have no redeeming qualities; they’re just out and out ugly!! I’ve seen so many otherwise adorable/chic/cool outfits “ruined” in those last few sartorial inches; can’t we leave the gym shoes in the gym where they belong…and get back to doing pretty on the street?? (I will make an exception for Converse, though; they have a quirky charm that works well with denim or a cute summer dress!!)
So, dear readers – let me know if you’re with me in ditching the athletic shoe trend…and definitely check out my Fabulous Footwear board on Pinterest for inspiration; I promise there isn’t a single pair of sneakers in the bunch!! If, on the other hand, you wanna have a crack at convincing me of the nuances of Nikes worn with an evening gown, then argue away!! 😉
