Trainers you can Totally Wear to Work


The trend for fashion trainers has been around for a while now, and doesn’t show signs of slowing down.

In my mind, they’re the perfect shoe. Comfy enough for any commute, and weatherproofed against the most unpredictable days of British weather. And they add a real edge to otherwise ‘safe’ outfits.

Luckily for us, there are several styles which you can incorporate into your workwear wardrobe without terrifying your boss but are still stylish enough to be brought out on the weekend.

My top tips? Avoid high tops and clashing colours, and when in doubt, stick to monochrome.


Puma Suede Classics

I have a real thing for burgundy trainers at the moment, and these Pumas are high up on my lust list. The suede might not be suitable until Spring, but this colour goes with everything, and can really brighten up a monochrome look.

If you’re brave enough to go for all-white trainers, these should be high on your lust list. White gives a really clean look (both literally and visually) and these Air Max are guaranteed to be comfy all day long.


Pebble Snake Glacier Vans Classics

Want to add pattern into your wardrobe without getting too ‘out there’? These snakeskin effect Vans are the perfect way to do just that. Subtle yet stylish, you’ll find yourself reaching for them again and again.


New Balance 420

New Balance have been having a moment for a while now and it shows no sign of letting up. Get in on the trend with these black and grey babies. The natural companion to black jeans, even your boss will be eyeing them up across the office.


Nike Stefan Janoski Trainers

I think I’ve saved the best til last in this post. These are very likely going to be this month’s payday purchase. Wipe-clean leather offsets the dangers of wearing white trainers in London, and makes them feel a little more luxe. Perfect for Spring and Summer, I just don’t think I’ll be able to resist!


Have you bought into the trainer trend? What’s your favourite pair?
