My Style: Casual Affair In United Nude Trainers

My Style United Nude 1 My Style: Casual Affair In United Nude Trainers %tag

Trainers are having a moment, they have never been out of fashion, so it isn’t a revival, so I am going with a moment – we have designers embracing the casual shoe on the catwalk, we have unsporty types opting for pops of colour to spice up their day-to-day outfits, and we even have hard core fashionistas embracing the comfort of the flats over heels. During fashion week everywhere I turned people were wearing the Nike FlyKnits, paired with jeans, leather skirts and even dresses – it seems that dressing down is the way forward.

For me, wearing trainers is the ultimate comfort, more so than wearing fluffy-lined boots on a cold day, they are an item of footwear that really has the ability to go with anything, plus if you really want to you could also run a mile in them, I don’t – but the thought is always there!!! One thing I am loving about trainers at the moment is how fun they are – with brands going for prints, textures, clashing colours and best of all retro shapes.

These beauties that I am wearing here are from United Nude’s new Runner collection, aren’t they pretty – they kind of remind me of a pair of Kangaroo’s I had in the 80′s, yep I am an eighties baby. I love everything from the shape, I do the slightly pointed toe to the vibrant stitching and the striped pattern that makes them instantly recognisable as being designed by United Nude. They are just so much fun.

There are six different designs, these are the Petrol ones, but all of them are just as vibrant, fashion-forward and will make a great addition for any trainer collection. Mine are probably the most toned down pair, but I just adored the neon pink trim, the others called Rave, Paradise, Violet, and Bright Mix are really statements, and there is a monochrome pair called Anis. I actually love them all – they really do capture the architectural vibe of the brand.

What do you think of United Nude’s fashionable trainers?

One For The Boys: Dune’s ‘Qwerty’ Hi-Tops

Menswear dune 3 One For The Boys: Dunes Qwerty Hi Tops %tag

I know I don’t generally feature menswear, mainly because one I am a girl and like to share things I would love to wear, two unless Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck or Channing Tatum is wearing the piece of menswear it is just plain boring, and thirdly because the main man in my life doesn’t really want to feature on my blog.

But I had to make an exception for these cool ‘Qwerty’ keyboard soled hi-top trainers that I picked up for my boyfriend at Dune recently, I even stopped him for wearing them until I had snapped them as I didn’t want him to ruin the sole.

My boyfriend generally owns nearly as many shoes as I do and most would have to be trainers and he has quite a mix from superhero converse to Jamaican flag Pumas, and these cool hi-tops make a great addition as they are both casual and smart, which means they are perfect for him to wear to work with jeans.

What I love about these beauties is in the details – not only the ‘Qwerty’ keyboard sole, which is pretty cool, but the suede tipped toes, the off-white laces, the panel stitching all over, the huge sewn in tongue, and the aged leather - I really just love their slouchy vibe without being too cool.

What do you think of these hi-tops would you like your man to wear these?
