As the trainer becomes a go-to staple for women’s wardrobes, we pick the most versatile white trainers to wear with everything all year long.
The white trainer has become a wardrobe staple for many women. Their versatility, and comfort, have made them a go-to choice for work, evening wear and relaxed weekends.
Once considered the harried woman’s commuting shoe, the trainer is now worn by the chicest women for every occasion. Phoebe Philo started the trend back in 2010, and no-one seems keen to stop it! Why would you return to sky high heels when flat, comfortable footwear is an option?
Previously trainers were the backup shoes you kept in your bag when your feet started hurting in the latest stiletto or court; now a trainer worn with a tailored suit for work is considered chic. When worn with a dress they bring a certain laid-back cool that can make your outfit seem a little more casual: brands like Valentino and Chanel have even begun styling their fluid and elegant evening dresses with trainers, with the white styles being the most versatile of the bunch.
The white trainer has become a classic that can be worn all year round. See our edit of the best white trainers to buy now and wear until they fall apart below.
