Trends come and go, however, many maintain longevity and from there a classic is born. Let’s take leggings, for instance, they are now a true classic. In fact, there are many clothing companies, recently launched, where the main focus is leggings. They are getting more and more sophisticated with each launch as a result of innovative ideas. More on leggings in a separate piece.
For now, it’s all about upscale, dressy sneakers, which have become a staple in the wardrobe of many women who want to maintain style while NOT compromising on comfort. The days of wearing sky high heels for hours in a day are o-v-e-r! I’m certainly not suggesting you toss your Louboutins, as they are more than apropos for a romantic dinner or special evening where you’re seated for most of the event. However, for the woman on the go with people to see and places to be, whose day begins before the sun shows it’s beautiful rays, and ends when it bids us good-bye for the day…a hot, fabulous sneaker seems to be the go-to.
Maison Martin Margiela
These are just a few of the more popular styles available… based on my profession, comfort is a necessity. My latest acquisition on the sneaker front, was this pair of Laura Bellariva’s from Gregory’s on Melrose Avenue.
I dress them up or down depending upon all the day entails. Recently I donned them with a white tee, boyfriend jeans and a few fun accessories.
