Trainers with maxi dress

(7 Posts)

Trying to cobble together something comfy to travel in. I want to take a pair of trainers or converse as I'll be doing a lot of walking whilst away and I travel with hand luggage only.

I was going to wear a black maxi dress to fly in as it will be warm enough for the flight but I won't frazzle when I arrive in a hot place.

Would this look weird or OK? What trainers / colour?

I do it so it must be fine!
With a black dress there's loads of options. Could go a nice bright colour or I often wear a black ditsy print.

Converse or similar, not sport trainers. If you're buying new get a colour that will go with the rest of your clothes, maybe grey

I got these gold converse ballet pumps which look great with a black dress and are really comfy

I wear trainers with practically any outfit you can think of, I like the juxtaposition of sports shoes with a floral tea dress for example. If you have converse already they will look fine, adidas gazelles are also good and more options in colours across suede and leather versions very comfy too.

I don't wear leather or suede but I do have white converse, black converse (dainty low and high top) or ancient and grubby well worn grey high tops. Plus either black Nike Roche or white and black Adidas superstars. Yes, I only wear black, white, grey or blue 90% of the time grin

I've done this at a wedding so it's fine grin
