I have been umming and aahing for sometime now about whether or not to hop on the trainer trend bandwagon. I love the look, but had been struggling to find a pair that didn’t make my tiny feet look like little stumps at the end of my legs. Menswear has been rocking the style for a while now, but I’ve only just begun to spot womenswear models to rival them. I fell in love with the NIKE Frees and Air Pegasus’ that were available in mens sizes, but no womenswear equivalent had caught my eye – until I saw the NIKE Air Max Theas that is. It was love at first sight.
In Scandinavia wearing sneakers with just about anything is acceptable. Every hip-kid in Stockholm is sporting a pair, and in Copenhagen (where I am at the moment) every foot is clad is brightly coloured kicks. I have just finished up at Stockholm Fashion Week, where I was attending shows as well as assisting in the organisation of one too. I will be posting a bunch of pictures over the next few days, and also putting up a few of the show pics from Copenhagen Fashion Week too. Unfortunately I’m working in Copenhagen so will be squeezing in a few evening shows were possible!
In the meantime here’s what I wore to Stockholm Fashion Week – it’s very paired back in comparison to my usual style, but I wanted an outfit that was comfortable, Scandinavian inspired (i.e. black, grey, white and more black), but also warm enough that I wouldn’t get frostbite between shows – what do you think? Scandi readers, how did I get on? Everyone else – what do you think of the sneaker look?
What I’m wearing: Topshop leather leggings, Topshop grey dress, TM Lewin menswear dress shirt, COS jumper, Nike Air Max Theas, Kurt Geiger handbag.
