how to style: Trainers

We’ve been huge fans of trainers for years now and our collection of Italian made low, mid and hi tops has grown and grown since we first started selling our hugely loved (and missed!) Greta trainers. 

Trainers have become a must have addition to every wardrobe. Not only do they transcend seasons, but generations too. Our trainer customers range from young girls being gifted their first pair of Keith Scarrott Shoes all the way to older ladies embrace trainers for the very first time in their 70’s!  

Whereas trainers used to be the reserve of sports stars, children or for those seeking practical footwear rather than something stylish, trainers now grace a huge range of wardrobes. They aren’t just sports shoes anymore. From platform soles to glitter and animals prints - trainers for everyone and for every occasion. 

We’ve rounded up three of our favourite from our AW22 collection and styled them each differently, to help you feel inspired whether you’re a passionate trainer convert or just considering taking the plunge…

Look One: Luxe

Wearing trainers doesn’t mean ditching luxe looks for something ‘scruffier’! You can easily style trainers to work into a more luxurious style. We’ve paired our Salta trainers in black with silky textures and creamy neutral tones for a hi-end look that can be worn day to night, season to season.

look two - classic

Hoping to work trainers into a more classic, minimal style? Easy peasy. We’ve chosen to style our Paffuta trainers in gold for this look. Opting for a more simple design will make it easier to work into a classic wardrobe. The gold glitter body adds an eye catching detail, without taking over the look and as they are one metallic tone they will match with literally EVERYTHING! We’ve opted for on trend, loose fit jeans in a light blue wash. Adding a hoody keeps the looked grounded (and plays into the ‘street style vibe of the trainers) while the camo jacket smartens the look with its neat tailoring. Topped with a luxury bag and gold hoops - the look remains timeless.

look three - fun

If you are fully embracing the street style associated with trainers, especially hi-tops, then our Elettrica trainers are the perfect option. Inspired by 90’s basketball styles they feature metallic panels, including bright neons, and a Velcro strap. We’ve paired them with a look that is perfect for a woman on the go! Comfort, warmth and practicality are key here but we haven’t substituted any of these for style! Clashing bright colours, and fun slogans play on the street style vibe and create a look that is perfect for someone with an exuberant personality.
