    Trainers are still the style staple carrying us through another season in comfortable style.

    Stan Smith has resonated itself as the only sneaker to grace every fashionable foot of the street style set, but with so many options to choose from it’s a crime not to own multiple pairs. Lets face it, we’re not choosing our sneakers for their sport ability alone, no, these days we’re looking at style and style only. Comfort? That’s just a bonus.

    From the high top to something backless with a hint of a print – it’s official, we’re sneaker obsessed. The classic lace up will be your go-to accessory with everything from maxi skirts to sleek trouser suits, dresses to off duty denim – take our word for it, your style dilemmas are sorted.

    Fancy something a little more fun? Let your feet do the talking with Saint Laurent, Anya Hindmarch and Charlotte Olympia. The classic white colour will still make these your go-to for a range of outfits but a pop of personality never hurt style-wise.

    If you’re office is more corporate than cool, look to simple slip-on styles with brogue detailing or minimal shapes. Keep them crisp white to ensure you still look smart.

    Alternatively, if anything goes in your office, earn serious style points with Topshop’s backless pair.

    With trainers it’s not all about the sporty label. Fashion’s love affair with kicks has ensured that from high street to high end, style is the number one priority.  

    Whether you’re splashing out on Saint Laurent or adding another pair to your sneaker pile with Topshop – we have you covered with the new-season guide to white trainers.
