Who’s excited about the current surge of sporty chic styles in the fashion world? I, for one, am beyond ecstatic. The sporty chic trend got its debut in the realm of men’s fashion about 3 years ago when we started to see tailored suits paired with statement sneakers popping up among celebrities and the fashion savvy crowd. I thought it was a cool trend and instantly took a liking to it but somehow, women’s fashion didn’t catch up to it right away. We did see the introduction of colorful retro sneakers by mainstream brands like Nike and New Balance a couple of years ago but it’s not until recently that the fashion world has exploded with a plethora of choices when it comes to cool kicks. I’m exploring the top 5 hottest sneakers trends below.
These are the go-to kicks for virtually everyone, from young to old. The clean minimalist design along with the comfort factor make it a versatile choice for a wide range of tastes.
The throwback style takes us back to the glory days but the updated colors and slight design tweaks make these classics a fun choice for those who love a bit of vintage vibe in their kicks.
Platforms & Wedges
That necessity is the mother of invention holds very true when it comes to these kicks. As women, we all “need” to add that extra length to our legs. Platform and wedge sneakers are the answer to heel lovers who want to get on the sneakers bandwagon.
Cool Black and White
These cool cats are seen not only at the gym but on every woman on the go who’s looking for comfort, agility and style in their kicks. Black and white cross trainers are being paired with everything from leggings to distressed jeans and even skirts.
Who said sneakers could only come in solid colors? Why not add a bit of color and fun to your kicks? Talk about statement sneakers! If you want a conversation starter, take your pick from floral slip-ons to plaid hi-tops.
