Are trainers now a fashion ‘thing’?
Dear mummy, are trainers a ‘thing’? Like a fashion ‘thing’ now? If they are then that means you’re in fashion mummy (for once in your life!)
We’ve seen emails from Kurt Giger, &OtherStories all peddling trainers as the footwear of choice this season. See The Gurdians article of Fashion Trainers of 2016.
It gives hope to all mummas out there, long gone are the ridiculous heels/platforms/super-wedge or whatever you call them for casual weekend wear. Fashionistas are now joining the ranks of the slummy (possibly yummy) mummies and choosing practically and sensibility over pain.
We’re not fashion bloggers (oh no far from it) but for the first time in a long time my mummy has just scored a goal and bought a pair of trainers she had no idea were actually cool! That, my friends, is awesome. I shall now label her a trend setter 😉 She picked them because she like the bright colour, she picked them for the nursery run and trips to the play park.
These little beauties were obtained from New Balance online store. They are purple 574 trainers…they are officially cool.
She’s now reading this feeling very proud of herself. The only problem is what the hell does she wear them with….. Ah ha! Now that is the fashion bit!
She went out to buy a magazine to see if she could gain further clarification, unsure whether a Lily Allen type dress and trainer combo would be cool…alas no.
But fear not, fashion wobblers she has found some inspiration! So without further ado here’s how to wear trainers and look un-mumsy doing it! Courtesy of Pinterest because those boards never lie 😉
It seems just as long as you’re wearing skinnies with turn-ups or tapered jogging bottoms then you are on trend!
