The new season is already in full swing, and the high street stores are filled with the new fashion trends that were long ago seen on the A/W catwalks and filtered through on to the pages of magazines. This season, footwear has launched to the top of the accessory priority list, with one particular style running high in demand.
Yes, you’ll still need that perfect pair of boots (see my desert boot post here), but urban chic has taken over. With its care free styling this trend produces an effortless look, which focuses on comfort as well as looking fabulous.
Various celebrities have been spotted wearing this trend such as, Rihanna, Ellie Goulding and Kristen Stewart, who are all wearing it differently depending on their own individual style. So, there’s no need to feel like you can’t pull off this trend as urban chic is a mixture of glamour and grunge – the less effort involved the better you’ll look!
It may surprise some but even style Queen Kim Kardashian has taken on the street trend, as she was spotted wearing a pair of Nike Air Jordans. If you’re like Kim and want to stick to a pair of Nike trainers that have a plain colour combination of white, black and grey, you can find an alternative pair at Millet Sports. These sleek black Nike running shoes will go with any outfit and the extra cushioning is ideal if you have an active day or commute.
If you’re fashion forward and like standing out from the crowd, at Millet Sports there’s also a range of bold and bright colours to choose from, like this pair of Asics Gel-Kayano trainers. The vibrant purple is also a favourite colour worn by Rihanna, the question is will you wear them as a statement shoe or take further inspiration from RiRi and wear as part of a combination of clashing colours.
Kristen Stewart has urban chic down to a tee when strutting her stuff down the red carpet. Her care free attitude has resulted in her looking absolutely gorgeous with that added comfort factor that I’m sure other celebrities were envious of. If like Kristen, you’re looking to keep a touch of femininity these Nike Bionic running trainers have a different kind of fabric around the outside of the shoe, giving a lace effect.
Get playful with urban chic – whether you want to keep this look glamorous with a hard edge or completely let loose and get grungy, no matter your style you’ll find the perfect pair of trainers for you.
