Perfect for every occasion, sneakers are another step forward in the current direction of gender-neutral, trans-seasonal dressing. Capitalising on this popularity are the footwear giants who are now locked in a sneaker war with each other. From Adidas, Yeezy, and Nike, to Puma, Converse, and Reebok, brands are offering more and more styles. Read on to find out the coolest women’s fashion sneaker and how to style them to perfection.
1. Chunky Sport Sneaker
As represented by the recent influx of mum jeans, “dorky” is the new cool, which is why the fashion elite are loving chunky sports-style sneakers. The padded shoes, which feature grooved, high-grip soles and athletic details are perfect, putting the spring back into your step. While they may remind you of the ’80s and women in skirt suits power walking to work, or even take you back to your old days of playing netball, we promise that when styled right, chunky sports sneakers can be totally chic.
2. High Top Sneaker
While men have no problem embracing high top sneakers, women have been more reserved about the style. This season, however, the style is a favourite amongst female fashion stars. They have proven that high tops can work, and now it’s your turn to try the style. There’s no need to feel unsure or afraid of this sneaker, as long as you know the look that you are after.
3. Statement Sneaker
Fashion loves a statement, and the current sneaker trend is no exception to this rule. While the seas of white sneakers prove the undeniable popularity of the simple and clean shade, there’s always room for a pop of colour in the wardrobes of the fashion elite. Whether you’re a fan of red, blue, now’s your time to make a statement with your shoes. Not a fan of bold colours? No problem. How about just some coloured laces? There’s a sneaker style to suit everyone this season.
4. Metallic Sneaker
While the world’s best athletes have been going for gold in Rio, the world’s top street style stars have been going for gold on their feet. High shine, metallic sneakers have popped up as one of the top shoe trends of the season with all our favourite fashion girls sporting them. While gold is undoubtedly a winning colour, silver and rose gold are also top picks for these fashionable pieces of footwear. Pick up your own metallic sneakers now to add an injection of “look at me” style into your everyday wardrobe.
5. Flatform Sneaker
If you’re looking for a shoe that’s a bit edgier than your regular sneaker, why not try a pair of flatform sneakers? Flatform (flat+platform) sneakers are regular sneakers that feature a flat sole that is thicker than average (usually about an inch or so). The unique look has a heavy and somewhat masculine appeal that is perfect for creating an outfit with attitude. With so much attitude in one shoe, it’s no wonder why Rihanna’s Fenty creeper-style flatforms are so popular.
