the trainer edit

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
I've always been quite a casual dresser and absolutely HATE going out feeling over-dressed, so I love to have a pair of trainers on hand to dress down any outfits that are borderline formal. I love the way trainers look with basic dresses & all-black outfits; they just make the whole ensemble seem so effortless, thrown together and just generally cooler, and I definitely need to add some more to my collection.
Those of you who are regular readers will know that I pretty much live in my white platform Converse's, so I've recently been on the hunt for a new style of sporty shoe to grace my feet and keep me casual this summer (although my beloved platforms could never be replaced!). I've chosen my favourite pairs from Size?, which is quite a well known high-street shoe store stocking all of the best brands (I tend to go to the one on Carnaby Street, although you can order online). Converse are (in my opinion) a staple, so I have included a few pairs in my top ten. However I'm also loving New Balance at the moment; it took me a while to latch on to the hype for this brand as at first I thought they were pretty darn ugly, but I'm now seriously considering getting myself a pair. For some reason I'm particular drawn to the green suede 574's at the top - I feel like they may divide opinions slightly, but there's something about a green pair of trainers that presents a bit of a challenge styling-wise, and it's certainly one that I'd be more than willing to accept!

What do you think of my top picks? Are trainers a hit or a miss in your wardrobe?
