33 Outfits That Look 10/10 Styled With Trainers

Gone are the days when trainers were solely reserved for athletic endeavours (Read: your commute, whenever it resumes). Over the past few years, sneakers have broken free from their gym-bag bounds and have taken on new sartorial meaning.

It all started when Adidas Stan Smiths became part of the It-girl uniform. Then Vans proved to be all the rage. Fast-forward a few seasons and we had the pared-back likes of Veja and Superga to obsess over. Most recently, though, "dad" trainers have been clogging up our Instagram feeds—something that looks set to continue the further into 2021 we find ourselves.

Regardless of which trainer style you've pledged your allegiance to, there's one thing we can all agree on: We're so glad trainers are here to stay. However, their styling potential goes way beyond the jeans-and-jumper combination we're guilty of sticking to, which is why we've tracked down a bounty of outfit ideas from our favourite bloggers.

From dresses and cardigans to skirts and puffer coats, keep scrolling to discover 35 outfits to wear with trainers that look incredibly chic.
