Hi, i would like to update my wardrobe a bit but can't afford a big overhaul. So I'm looking for trendy sneakers which could go with jeans/black trousers/denim skirts and dresses. Also maybe trendy scarves/necklaces/handbags. The total budget is about 100 quid, so prices need to be reasonable :-)
As for trainers 100% would go for converse (high or low/leather or canvas). Could also maybe do vans but converse (I think) are more versatile. As for accessories Primark do great chunk knit scarfs etc. I would save for a good quality handbag- doesn't have to be over the top expensive but a nice one from next or river island would do the trick.
I find Converse so uncomfortable. I wear, the much maligned on MN, Sketchers Go Walk, and any other shoes in comparison just don't offer the support and comfort that they do. Converse have flat soles and my feet ache after half a day.
Thanks for the suggestions! I've been wearing Converse for years but want to get away from my usual spring look (converse + stiripy t-shirt + skinnies + trenchcoat + bright-couloured scarf). I got a bit tired of this uniform :-)
I'm thinking about trying out some Nike airforce 1s for spring. &otherstories or offspring have some nice ones. I'm also bored of the converse/ Stan smith trap I seem to have got myself into. I saw a lady wearing a cool pair of Air Force 1 at the wetlands centre last week so I'm stealing her look . The right shoes can totally change an outfit in my world.
I am very into trainers. My favourite for everyday is the big standard black converse, white and black checked slip on vans and it was adidas superstars until I lost one of them (I don't have a clue how) When I'm feeling more brave I wear these or similar to that. I bought a beautiful blanket scarf from Zara for £15 it's super soft. My issue is tops, I really struggle finding 'nice' tops.
