Summer Footwear Trends
One of the topics on everyone's minds this summer has, of course, been the Olympics! To add to this, the fashion industry has been getting involved; trends have been sport influenced getting everyone in the mood for a bit of fitness. Luckily for the less sporty amongst us there are still things out there to wear that relate to this trend but that can be worn without having to conform to the head to toe athlete look.
Fashion and Sportswear
A great way to participate in the sport fever of the season without having to bust out the lycra shorts is to inject an athletic aesthetic into your accessories. Of course sportsmen and women are not big on accessorising in the manner of handbags and jewellery; all is not lost if we consider footwear however. Shoes can be a great way to give a look a certain style without going overboard. The obvious choice in footwear in order to give an outfit a sporty edge is a pair of trainers, though these can often be difficult to match with non-sporty clothes in a stylish way. There are some styles, however, that have been requisitioned by the fashion world meaning you can more easily mix and match the two looks.
The easiest way to find a sport shoe which you can wear with anything from jeans to a dress is to find a style that you like, and preferably one that comes in a variety of colours so you can inject some of your personality into your outfit. Long standing Converse are a good example of this. Though classically in black, over the years many more colours and patterns have been added to their repertoire. They also come in a variety of lengths depending on what you intend to match them with. A sports shoe by design, they are also fashionable and stylish enough to add to your wardrobe as an everyday item.
So there is no need to stick to flip flops and boots for fear of not being able to participate fully in the sporting fashion phenomenon of the season. Think outside the box a little and you will discover a wealth of innovative ways to keep your look both up to date and unique to your personality and lifestyle. It is an added bonus that this sporting trend means comfortable footwear has become acceptable and stylish to wear day to day. It may even leave you feeling inspired to take up a new sport!
