Classic White Trainers

The most versatile option available, white trainers are hard to beat when it comes to perfecting your summer looks. Effortlessly paired with everything from jeans to dresses, skirts and shorts, white trainers will fit right into your existing wardrobe.  


We love the way that Serena (@serenasews_) has paired her white trainers with a jewel toned outfit. White trainers are the perfect understudy to bright, bold prints and colours. 

Equally, Aimee (@aimeejane_wears) demonstrates, that white trainers go perfectly with more neutral tones. White trainers will uplift your outfits, giving off the perfect light and bright summer vibe, where other darker colours, such as black, might wash out more delicate tones.

Sporty Trainers

When the summer heat kicks in, why not opt for a pair of sleek and sporty kicks? Jumping on the athleisure trend, trainers in a sporty silhouette will add new dimension to your ensembles by dressing down your finer clothes for a considered yet casual look. 


Lauren (@x_laurengrace_x) has the right idea, teaming her sporty lace-up trainers with smarter skirt and waistcoat for a well-balanced ensemble. We love her ankle socks in this look, which add a sense of top-to-bottom continuity through colour.

High-Top Trainers

Not to be neglected, despite the rise in temperature, high-top trainers are a season-round favourite. There’s something so nostalgic about high-top trainers that we can’t quite put our finger on. 


What’s certain is that this silhouette always draws attention to itself, therefore simple is best. Contrast high top trainers with a shorter summer dress for an easy put-together look. 

Or follow Paulina’s (@paulineerdmann) lead and opt for simple jeans. Drape a cardigan or jumper over your shoulders on days when the should-be-sunny sky is overcast.

Look for suede overlays and more streamlined runner or tennis shoe silhouettes with rubber treads coming right up to the end of the toe. 


Try pairing your retro kicks with like colours to give your outfit a sense of continuity – especially when pairing them with more modern cuts of clothing. 

For example, Aimee (@aimeejane_wears) pairs her retro-inspired trainers with tailored trousers in a similar stone-wash colour, while Jade (@jadelarrah) pairs like for like in her bright and bold orange tones.
