Trend I'm Loving (But Will Probably Never Wear)

The trend I've seen everywhere lately (espesh in London) is trainers being worn in a très chic way. Not styled in the overly 'sports luxe' way you see in mags, but just with every day cool outfits. 

I'm all for a comfy trend (jersey and smock dresses make up 97.3% of my wardrobe) but something about the trainer trend scares me. I think it's because my hair is a weird length so I'm in a bit of a funk about what kinds of things suit me... Or maybe they just bring back bad memories of my time at the gym.

Anyway, I've been searching on line for some sneaker inspo to remind myself that trainers are not just synonymous with sweaty, sweaty exertion. They can look amazeballs, and you can run for a bus in them. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE? 

Here are some of my faves from the world wide web, if I ever manage to stop chickening out about them:

What trends are YOU too chicken to try? 



  1. Trainers are essential for walking in London..you can buy trainers with a bit of a wedge heel which looks more flattering. )

  2. Considering I live in my studded flats or boots I'm scared about trying these too. Not sure I could pull it off but pretty jealous of those who can, looks a lot comfier aha!

  3. I could so go in for this! I am however a bit scared of trying the fashion turban :') xx


  4. I love this trend too, but have NO idea how to pull it off myself! Definitely not cool enough haha xo

  5. Those leopard print ones are absolute beauts... though I reckon I'd look ridiculous trying to pull it off :/

    Trends Im too chicken to try? Sportswear as anything other than gym or dance class gear...you can see why styling trainers might be problematic now ;)

  6. Don't think I'll ever get on board with this trend - converse are the closest I'll ever come and they are reserved for festivals and sick days (ie lazy days!) x

  7. I don't think I could try this! Trainers should be for the gym only ;)

  8. I unexpectedly carried out this trend when going camping, wearing trainers for practicality, then it got really hot and I ended up wearing a denim skirt, bare legs and trainers, oh how they laughed at me back then!
    I reckon the last photo could be carried off...*searches for NB trainers*

  9. i agree, its gorgoeus when other people wear it but i am just not a sneakers kinda girl!


  10. There's so many, I honestly lose track.

    Still trying really hard to conquer my fears though!


  11. I love this trend too but I'm like you in the fact I'm not sure it'll suit me! x

  13. Don't think that I'll be wearing this too...
    I'm very into my platforms at the mo... Also the 90s!! x

  14. Even though this is such a popular style it's just not for me! I don't think I own a pair of trainers....

  15. Exactly this. Wearing trainers would make power walking between trains and tubes so much easier, but I still can't get over the whole trainers-with-non-sporty-clothes thing.

  16. Hello dear, Your blog really awesome! Love it! <3
    Btw, wanna follow each other via GFC? ;) www.catpuff-blog.com

  17. I love this trend! I am always on the verge of buying a pair of black and white New Balance but they're so expensive and I know I wouldn't be able to pull them off like these girls! Hope you had a lovely christmas.

  18. This one kind of passed me by, there are a ton of people at uni always wearing the black Nike's. Not my thing, but they look so good in loads of outfits that i just wouldn't have expected...

  19. obviously like your web site however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I'll surely come again again.
