Thought You Couldn't Pull Off a Dress With Trainers? Think Again

If you spent your childhood in a pair of Converse or even Nike Air Force 1s, you are no stranger to the idea that trainers can be more than just handy – they can make a style statement. But, melding the feminine look of a flirty dress with a knock-around pair of kicks has been a no-no until now. We bet you never expected that pairing sporty shoes and an LBD was actually NBD, but surprise — it is!

Feminine frocks, sexy sheaths, and sporty skirts can all work when paired with just the right footwear. And not only will you earn major style points for thinking outside the box, the best part will be your blister-free feet. Check out our favourite style tricks to take this trend from the jungle gym to the urban jungle, c'est chic!
