Sneakers are still in trend, which means you don’t need to be a fashion mermaid
Every girl has mixed feelings about high-heels because they are so gorgeous, so exquisite and just like a work of art. when I wear a pair of Christian Louboutin, I feel like I can rule the world.
While ruling the world we need to pay the price, and my feet are paying it. My history with high-heels runs alongside all my high school and university memories, I don’t even feel the pain anymore and running with high heels is a piece of cake.
These sweet memories stopped two years ago when all the fashion bloggers and magazines started to use white leather sneakers to match everything and announced that sneakers are on trend. I didn’t follow the trend immediately because I still have my feelings about my old lover – high-heels, but it didn’t last long when everybody, literally everybody around me started wearing fashion sneakers.
I carefully chose the most popular pair of Adidas Originals Stan Smith (I still see people wearing Stan Smith now). My first impressions after I put them on is that I feel so short…. (No kidding, I felt like seeing the world from a different perspective, but it can be a good thing, for I’m not the queen ruling the world but an approachable friend). Here is the sneaker that changed my fashion life and my personal life.
Green was the hot hit at the time, for now, a black and white pattern is the most fashionable choice.
The white leather sneaker is not THE trend now, but I still like them. I will come this, but for now, the spotlight should be on the “dad sneaker”.
Best Dad sneakers
What is a dad sneaker you might ask? Well, go look at your dad’s shoe shelf, if your dad doesn’t have a pair of really heavy and stupid looking sneakers, then look at the US former president Obama. The polo shirt, loose jeans and a big old pair of sneakers, yes, that’s the normal casual daddy dress code.
Believe it or not, this dad sneaker is “in” now, and the proof is Bella in the Dior show. It is not only Bella, if you pay a little attention to celebrity’s street shoots, you will be surprised.
My Dad Sneaker recommendations:
When talking about the dad sneaker, one brand has to be mentioned… that is Skechers. Because they are big enough, thick enough and ugly enough (kidding). It is the original dad sneaker, but on the bright side, they are really really comfortable. It is possible that after you get used to this comfort level you won’t want to change back.
Like I said earlier, the black and white pattern is “in” now, so if you want to go down this route why not choose the most popular pattern.
While I was browsing photos, I spotted another trend which adds a little bit of bright colour to this black and white pattern, so if you want to be even more fashionable, choose the trend that is growing now.
Lastly, the classic all sneaker. White sneakers have been popular for so long, they must do something right. I think the main reason is that the colour white can go with almost anything.
If you don’t like this dad sneaker trend, it is totally alright, you don’t need to follow every fashion trend, the most important thing is to have your own attitude and style. When I don’t like some fashion trends, I just tell myself that its just retailers trying to bankrupt me, I’m not going to fall for it…. When in reality I probably will.
Best Sock sneaker
The Sock sneaker now is similar to the white leather sneakers of two years ago, when every fashion blogger and fashion Icon wore them.
I’m happy to embrace this trend, because I REALLY like it and think sock sneakers look very cool, kind of like a fashion ninja. And like the white leather sneaker, you can wear it to match your every look. It won’t look weird whether you are wearing a leisure outfit or a formal dress, it only makes your look unique.
My Sock sneaker recommendations:
I personally like VETEMENTS, but my purse can’t handle them :-P, so I picked these Alexander McQueen sock sneakers instead, they are a similar style and almost half the price.
White leather sneakers
Yes, white sneakers are still in trend, and a good pair of white leather sneakers is a worthwhile investment. I think I’ve said enough good things about this one, so I’m going to go directly to the recommendation part.
My white leather sneaker recommendations:
ALEXANDER MCQUEEN is one of my favourite designers, even after his death, I still love the brand. I like this pair not only because of the colour, but the fine details on the black top-line, and in addition, the thick sole which will secretly make you tall without high-heels.
Gucci Ace. Even my mum knows Gucci is the most popular luxury brand right now and everything it does can all go viral immediately. These Gucci sneakers use the simplest design but have a crazy variety of design patterns you can choose from, I’m sure you can find one you will like.
Next is my personal favourite brand: Golden Goose. I like the star pattern and the casual feeling of this brand, especially when it goes “dirty” which suits my lazy personality:-P
This one feels like spring.
Like I said you don’t need to follow the trend if you don’t want to, there are lots of nice fashion sneakers for sale.
Pink has always been my favourite colour. These pink Adidas Duck Camo Pack use sweet pink combined with the cool disruptive pattern to give it a unique look.
My dirty Golden Goose.
These Common Projects metallic silver sneakers are the perfect match for the metallic silver handbags I recommended in my other article.
