How to Make Your Trainers Look Cute — Even If You Don't Have "Those Balenciagas"
It definitely makes us happy that one of the top sneaker trends over the past few seasons has been trainers. Even though that means there are plenty of styles from luxury labels that look like athletic shoes, all our favorite shapes from sports brands like Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Reebok, Brooks, HOKA One One — the list goes on — are now totally cool. The good news is, most of these ring in right around the $100 mark, and you don't have to splurge on the trend in question just to get the look.
While we've kept trainers on our feet and our gym shoes in rotation even while going out — routinely styling them with fancy dresses and skirt suits — Instagram is still a constant gold mine for brand new outfit ideas. Just in case you need to refresh your arsenal of #OOTD inspo, we looked to some of our favorite influencers for styling tricks to employ when you're wearing your sneaks that are versatile enough to go for a jog in later on in the day. Now you have no excuse not to snap a cute selfie, then change into your spandex and squeeze in a workout.
