Elevating Your Looks For Less: Trainers Edition

There’s no doubt that 2020 has seen a massive spike in loungewear styling. Leaving the house hasn’t been a priority, but comfort certainly has!

Now that shops and restaurants are gradually opening up their doors again, there seems to be a panic around wearing “normal clothes”. Most people haven’t worn jeans or heels in months, let alone been able to splurge on new ones to show off!

While society moves back into a new norm, the old saying “comfort is key” may just be as important as ever. The whole world has become a homebody, so transitioning back to normality may require extra care.

Even before lockdown, one of the best ways to achieve comfort and class these days is with some trendy trainers. Old school trainers have become extremely popular lately too – even more so when you can score some discounts for Nike pairs!

Idea 1: Style With Suits 

Perhaps it’s new to you, but pairing trainers with formal suits are a big trend currently. The contrast between a structured suit and a sporty trainer makes for a wonderful combination, perfect for your first eat-out dinner. Nike’s Hard Court Tennis Shoes are a good choice if you’re interested in this kind of style. They’re a more relaxed trainer with a 90’s tennis shoe feel – hence the name! You’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of them as they can easily be rotated from casual to chic in seconds.

Idea 2: Casual Creps

For something a little more fun, Nike’s Vision Low Women’s Shoe will quickly elevate your casual outfit. These are a good style to throw on with jeans, shorts, or even dresses. Whether you’re heading to the park, having an afternoon drink in the pub, or running some errands. They’re a simple design with a pop of red for those colour-loving ladies. Plus, red is a colour that’s always in style – meaning you’ll never have to worry about missing out on the trends!

Idea 3: Keep It Simple 

When it comes to upgrading your style, you can never go wrong with black trainers. Sure, they may be slightly less exciting than trainers with colour detail. However, black is always an easy shade to mix with. For trainers that will satisfy this style, Nike’s Air Max Excee’s are a must-have. With a slight added bit of height and a good-cushioned insole, you’ll be stylish and comfortable at once. What’s better than that? Plus, when paired with black jeans or leggings, the continuation of black down to your feet will make your legs appear longer.

Idea 4: Vintage Looks For Life 

If vintage is more your vibe then you’ll be excited to spruce up your look with the Nike Classic Cortez trainers. These will really make you feel as though you’ve travelled back in time, but in the best way possible. If you’re into your athleisure, these trainers will take your outfit to the next level. The fun addition of red and blue colours on these trainers are a favourite and will undoubtedly add some brightness to your days. Loved for their flattering shape and textured outsole, no one will even notice that you’re in your gym gear!

Idea 5: Effortless Neutral

Lastly, for something a little more neutral, but still bang on trend, is Nike’s Ebernon trainers. The plain white of these trainers allow you to dress them up with anything. The unique detail comes from the rubber, chunky sole. This gives the trainers a touch of edginess, making them the perfect finish to a more feminine ‘fit. With the warmer weather comes flower dresses and easy-to-wear skirts. Throw on this great pair of Nikes and you’ve got yourself a sweet ensemble.

Whatever style you decide on, the perfect trainer is out there for you. 2020 may easily be the worst, but your outfits no longer have to be. As a final point for elevating your looks, choose the trainers that you know you’ll get the most wear out of. If you can get many wears out of one pair, you’re good to go! Accessories make an outfit, and the best accessories are those that can carry you to wonderful places…
