As I went around the shops today I started to notice that sneakers or trainers are not just being worn round the gym or when exercising, they are not just sports shoes anymore but are actually becoming acceptable and even fashionable to be worn with a pretty dress, a pair of jeans or a skirt.

In the shops I did not just notice one type of trainer but I noticed there were high tops, running shoes, hidden platforms, flatforms and wedges. You name it, the shops had it.

It is not just high street shops like Urban Outfitters or River Island that are selling trainers now but designers like Michael Kors, Isabel Marant and Lanvin are featuring sneakers into their collections.   

The new Michael Kors sneakers feature, high-tops, trainers and slip-on silhouettes, with metallic finishes, bursts of neon colour and embossed snakeskin textures. The sneakers range from £99 to £165, I think everyone is getting ready to indulge!

Celebrities have started to set this trend and bring ideas of how to style trainers with an outfit. Celebs like Rita Ora, Rihanna and Cara Delevingne know exactly how to rock the trainer look. They seem to find a new way of matching sneakers to an outfit they are wearing no matter how smart or casual.
