How do you wear white trainers?

I have noticed - only now! - that white trainers are in fashion. I've promptly bought somechunky leather ones (Fly London), only to realise I have no idea how to wear them. They seem so unstylish, somehow... I guess it's the kind of thing that can look very wrong easily.

Please instruct me!

Are they in now ? They were last year

It's a casual look isn't it.
I wear mine with skinny jeans and a funky jumper or Tshirt. I'm not very stylish though!

In answer to the thread title, this would be my recommendation:-

On your feet.

If you figure out how to keep them clean btw please let me know.

You bought them simply because you thought they were in fashion? 🙄

PinkCloudDweller Sat 14-Jan-17 19:59:31

Erm... yes. I do have a brain too (just not for fashion...).

Well at least they are useful grin

I have some Ash flatform trainers which I wore all this summer and early autumn with cropped boyfriend jeans.

I haven't worn them in the winter, because they look a bit odd with skinnies (being so chunky) and I don't like cold ankles!

Probably not helpful to you, I'm sorry.

I only wear mine rarely in winter. Ankle length skinnies or rolled boyfriend jeans, plainish top, leather jacket.

With anything, really. Shorts, jeans, dress.

Trend forecast says sneakers with embroidery will be in this year. Similar to Gucci's. I think Nike came out with a limited edition AirForce one.

AteRiri Sat 14-Jan-17 20:37:23

Oh and they've been in fashion for around three years now. But I still love them.

Black/grey jeans, top, white trainers.

Not when it's raining.

I have white Nike Air Force Ones. I wear them with everything. They are probably the most versatile shoes I own.

WhisperingLoudly Sat 14-Jan-17 21:03:33

I wear mine with cropped boyfriends, turned up skinnies, sports luxe joggers.

Don't like them with skirts/dresses myself.

DancingHouse Sat 14-Jan-17 21:23:27

With blue jeans in the summer.

RocketQueenP Sat 14-Jan-17 21:41:38

Love this look

I have all white converse and all white air max 90's

I usually wear them with super skinny jeans and a baggy hoody with a leather biker over it

I think they look best with cropped length is more of a summer thing.

The students around here are wearing them with no socks and slightly rolled up skinnies. Even in yesterday mornings icy weather.

I don't do white trainers or converse. Am far too messy for white anything tbh.

I take a rubber to my white Addidas trainers, works well to remove most marks. I don't wear them in the rain.

Usually wear mine with skinnies or culottes (in the summer).

I saw someone yesterday in dark grey cropped skinnies with a navy kimono jacket, white embroidered top underneath, white converse. Looked epic.

That's how I wear mine, except with trainer socks, couldn't not wear socks, doesn't feel right to me!

Keyser that sounds a lovely outfit

SuperFlyHigh Sat 21-Jan-17 11:50:43

I never wear them as they'd be dirty in a second...

However, I would say spray with stain repellent or rain etc protector first!

What to wear with?! no socks and slightly rolled up skinnies for sure is how I've seen them.

I have white leather Supergas, white Stan Smiths and white Air Force ones. I love them all! I think they work well with just jeans and t-shirts/jumpers, denim shorts in the summer.

RocketQueenP Sat 21-Jan-17 12:03:35

Ooh I want some white Stan smiths! And some superstars
