How Style White Trainers
Whether you spot them on a grocery store run, leaving a meeting, or even on the runway, there’s a new footwear staple sweeping the streets: the white trainers. Long gone are the days when your trainers were used solely for exercising: they now possess limitless styling possibilities, and can be dressed up or down whatever your style personality.
From businessmen wearing white trainers with suits to brides wearing white trainers on their wedding day, the once basic sports shoe has taken on a whole new persona and has proven to be a must-have in every wardrobe whatever someone’s age, shape and shopping budget.
“When it comes to picking out a shoe I try to pick a style that would be considered timeless, because there are so many options to choose from” – Alfred
Our Miami stylist, Alfred, is always at the cusp of the newest trends, and has some tips for styling this essential footwear for any event.
Want to acquire that chic street style look? Make a statement by pairing a bold print shirt with casual trousers and a white trainer. The trainers compliment any outfit and allows the bold print to stand out. You can continue to accessorize this look with a watch & chain.
Taking the trainer to a timeless look by pairing them with a white shirt and breathable cotton chinos to keep it clean cut and casual. This is an ageless look and will be in style for years to come.
“If you are anything like me, you’ll want to make sure you keep your white trainers white (not gray!) and for that I recommend baby wipes – they really work!”
Someone wise once said to me; “Your airport outfit is very important and you should be both comfortable and confident when travelling” and we couldn’t agree more. You want to make a statement while keeping it simple and stylish when moving through the airport. Alfred suggests a pocket shirt, cuffed jeans, topped off with the simple white trainer.
“Being from Miami, I personally tend to lean more towards a Miami staple: a crisp, white Air Force 1”
Air Force Ones not your style? Alfred has put together a white-hot-list including Cole Haan, Prada, and Adidas, that will cater to your every taste.
