Trainers are the ultimate comfort shoe, so why put yourself through the blistering (literally) pain of strappy sandals and heels in the summer?
Not only are women’s trainers comfortable and more supportive for walking in but they can also match perfectly with your summer outfits – plus, forgot to get that pedicure you’ve been planning? No problem. Trainers can be dressed up for the day and night so are the perfect shoe choice whether you’re going on a long walk, shopping trip, travelling and even a night out.
If you’re wondering how to match your trainers with your summer outfits, we’ve got you covered so you can stay comfortable and stylish this summer.
7 Ways to match trainers with your summer look
Co-ords have become a popular outfit choice for those who usually struggle pairing tops and bottoms – a co-ord is always perfectly matched for you. Try a pair of classic white trainers with a bright and bold coloured co-ord set to soften the complete look.
A white pair of trainers are a must-have for summer as they match easily with every colour, whether they’re used to lift a dark outfit or subdue colourful pieces.
Maxi dresses are a simple summer look that work well for any occasion. Plain, monochrome maxi dresses can have a great impact without being overly dressy. Whilst they can be styled with a pair of thin heels, switching to a pair of trainers is a great way to keep it casual, comfy and cute.
The edgy look
If you’re looking for a more hip style, match a pair of denim shorts with your favourite band t-shirt and cover up with a leather jacket. Complete this outfit with a pair of platform trainers and tights – the perfect vibe for festivals.
Thigh-high split skirt
The split skirt has become incredibly popular and is fashioned by the likes of Emily Ratajkowski and other social media influencers. For a touch of glamour without the glitz, match a thigh-high split with a pair of running trainers and a t-shirt. This laid-back look will be your new summer favourite.
Oversized-shirt or jersey dress
An oversized-shirt or jersey dress offers ultimate comfort – plus you’ll be grateful for the loose material on a hot summers day. Colour coordinate your trainers with your shirt dress for a head-to-toe statement outfit and get creative with bold, summer colours such as red, orange and yellow. This relaxed summer look is ideally matched with sporty trainers.
If skateboarding isn’t your thing, fine. The skater style looks awesome on anyone. Ideal for trips to the park or beach days, skater skirts and dresses are a stylish way to dress up without actually having to dress up. Match your outfit with a pair of low skating trainers – plain or patterned – and complete the look by wrapping a checkered shirt around your waist.
During warm summer days, it’s impossible to not throw on a flowy summer dress covered in floral patterns to get into a holiday-ready mood. These dainty dresses are often paired with sandals but to elevate your outfit, be daring and match with oversized, chunky trainers. The contrast between a delicate dress and heavy, statement shoes balances perfectly.
