What to wear with chunky trainers

Hello you lot! I hope you have had a brilliant weekend. Today's post is a mini styling one, as lots of you have asked how to wear chunky trainers. 

Now we all know that it's the Scandi crew that have inspired the chunky trainer trend. During Copenhagen Fashion Week, it's all I could see. More power to it- it's a seriously comfy trend to be on board with. For me, the Balenciaga's are too much. I mean, they look like tiny monsters on your feet. But I cannot deny that I do love the trend as a whole, to an extent.

The key is, to either go girly long length dress a la the Danish girls, mini skirt, or, good old denim and an oversized shirt.

I have tried such a lot of pairs on, ordered and sent back. I stuck to trailing sports brands like Puma, Adidas and finally, settled on this Nike pair from & Other Stories (they do the best selection of women's trainers). It took me a few wears to figure out how best to style them, and what I felt comfortable in- and speaking of comfortable, these are the lightest, most comfortable trainers I own. 

I'm constantly finding new ways to wear them to dinner too, with a red lip, to keep it chic!
