As every fashionista knows, trainers are the key to cool. No longer consigned to the gym, trainers inject personality into everyday clothes and special occasion outfits. And with an emphasis on style, comfort and practicality, iconic British brand Gola is your go-to. The latest collection adds street-style flair to getting dressed. If your florals feel too girlish for work, too twee for a night out, add a pair of Gola trainers and you’re good to go! Discover the different ways to wear trainers for 2019, below...
Add An Old-School Edge
Rummage through your vintage wardrobe, pull out your coolest dress (you get bonus points for anything patterned) - and then slip on some classic sneakers for an all-over old-school edge. For purists, the Gola Classics Montreal Lustre has been updated with an grey nylon upper and delicate gold leaf embroidery. Perfect for adding a timeless feel to your spring/summer wardrobe.
Go retro-sporty by pairing a tea dress or skirt and tee with trainers for summer. Opting for trainers that have a mixture of white and a bright hue will help keep your look feeling fresh and current. Our shoe of choice? The Gola Classics Badminton plimsoll in classic off-white and green.
Add A Pop Of Colour
This year, the new way to wear colour is by donning it on your feet. A pop of colour can help bring an outfit to life, so don't be afraid to experiment with clashing hues. Gola Classics Toronto in Baltic blue with ashes of yellow and red are a must. Or be pretty in pink with the Gola Classic Vancouver.
Embrace Pastel Power
Since pastel is the new neutral, make sure you add lilac, sky blue, lemon and blush to your spring/summer shoedrobe. A Gola Classic Vancouver trainers boasts a classic silhouette with a romantic new look that will have your feet turning heads for all the right reasons. For an extra chic look, wear with frilled socks.
