After my accident at London Fashion Week I surrendered to practicality and invested in a pair of sensible shoes. Nike trainers have had a renaissance in recent years and Air Max are swaddling some of the worlds most fashionable feet. I couldn’t quite bring myself to go for the prosaic charm of a totally flat sneaker, so I chose a pair of Dunk Sky High Tops instead. I never thought I’d wear a wedge trainer, in years gone by I’d have balked at the idea. However, the Nike Dunk Sky Highs are more flattering than flat kicks, the wedge gives the illusion of longer legs and smaller feet – both highly necessary in my case.
The Luxe Sportswear trend has been knocking around for a few seasons now, but I’ve avoided the look because it doesn’t feel very ‘me’. However, combined with unabashedly feminine pieces it’s workable – the key to wearing any trend is to make sure that you stick to shapes that are flattering to your body and work from there. I’ve paired my Nikes with an ASOS skirt and a cropped tee from Topshop.
