ONE GARMENT, FOUR WAYS: RUNNING SNEAKERS

one garment four ways

 

Today I am sharing with you my tips on how to wear your running sneakers as an everyday footwear. It doesn’t really make a difference if you actually run or not, the fact is running sneakers are one of the most comfortable shoe options you will ever find, and certainly one of the most fun type of sneakers around. You can find them in all kinds of crazy color combinations, from classic black and white to orange, pink and yellow.

In my opinion wearing them is relatively easy, because they tend to go with almost anything, although sometimes if mixed up with too much color and too much elements they can become overwhelming. So I decided to up this small guide on how to style them, hopefully it can serve as inspiration for some of you.

Tip #1 Wear your running sneakers with a midi skirt: personally this is my favorite way of wearing them, it is the less evident footwear for this kind of skirt, so it clashes in a unexpected way, and adds fun to your ensemble.

Tip #2 Wear your running sneakers in a monochrome outfit: this is the best way to make your sneakers stand out, without adding to much information to your outfit. Doesn’t really matter the color of your sneakers, when it is a neutral color outfit they will make even a better statement.

Tip #3 Wear your sneakers with a classic outfit and top it with another sportswear accessory: this is a great way to make your otherwise very classic outfit take a modern route. You add the sneakers and pair it in this case with a cap. It is a mix of classic with a sporty/modern touch.

Tip #4 Wear your sneakers with a mini skirt: I love mini skirts with running sneakers, they are sexy in a non sexy way, I don’t know if it makes sense, but it takes away a little bit of this feminine vibe, without taking too much. When worn with a t-shirt or structured top, it looks even better because it tones down even more the girly girly vibes.

Any other suggestion? Please share your tips!

Hoy os voy a dar mis sugerencias y tips de como usar vuestras zapatillas de correr como prenda de vestir para uso diario. La verdad da igual si salís a correr o no, mucha gente se compra estas zapatillas por lo cómodas que son y por la gran variedad de colores y diseños que estas ofrecen. Las podéis encontrar en todo tipo de combinaciones de colores, con estampados y de un sin fin de marcas, así que es lo menos complejo que existe dar con un par.

En mi opinion es relativamente fácil combinarlas porque le van bien a prácticamente todo, pero si es cierto que combinadas con mucho color y muchos estampados y capas puede ser un poco abrumador. Para que esto no pase aquí van mis consejos y trucos de como combinarlas.

Tip #1 Combinar las zapatillas de correr con una falda midi: personalmente es mi combinación favorita para este calzado, es lo menos evidente para este tipo de falda, así que choca un poco de una forma inesperada, añadiendo ese toque divertido e informal.

Tip #2 Añadir unas zapatillas de correr a un conjunto monocromático: esta es la mejor forma de enfocar la atención al calzado, sin que sea demasiado. No importa el color de vuestras zapatillas, si el conjunto es un color neutro destacarán aun mas.

Tip #3 Usar las zapatillas de correr en un conjunto clásico añadiendo otro accesorio deportivo: esta es la mejor forma de transformar un conjunto clásico en uno mas moderno. Solo basta añadir algún accesorio deportivo (gorra, mochila, etc).

Tip #4 Combinar las zapatillas de correr con una falda mini: me encantan las faldas mini con este tipo de zapatillas, hacen que un conjunto femenino deje de serlo tanto. Cuando además combinamos la falda con una camiseta básica o un top estructurado le quita aun mas elementos y femeninos y puede resultar mas neutro y ambiguo.

Ahora os toca compartir a vosotras conmigo vuestras sugerencias!

SUMMER 2015: OUTFIT 9

So today I am wearing a monochrome navy outfit (the t-shirt is really charcoal but it looks navy in the pictures). As you know I love navy and I love monochrome outfits so I could not think of anything better than to mix both. The only slight pop of something else is in my tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Hoy llevo un conjunto monocromático en color azul navy (la camiseta es de color carbón pero acaba pareciendo navy en contraste con las demás prendas). Como sabéis adoro el color navy y adoro los conjuntos en un solo color, por lo que no se me ocurre nada mejor que mezclar estos dos elementos. El único pequeño destello de algo diferente esta en mis gafas de sol de carey.

SOMETHING NEW: ACNE STUDIOS HAZE WEDGES

Trini blog |Acne Studios Haze wedges

 

I don’t really know if this shoes should be called wedges or chunky heels, but either way they are a fabulous pair footwear that is really comfortable. I first fell in love with them at the Acne Studios store in DTLA last March and I instantly added them to my wishlist.

I only have one other pair of wedges that I got years ago by Isabel Marant and I wear them so much in summer, specially to go out for dinner or parties, and I with Madrid’s heat it is unbearable to wear closed shoes in summer, so I needed a new pair desperately. I was so glad when I found the last pair online was my size, because this shoes in particular had all the elements I was looking for, and so they eventually won over the other heels/wedges I had my eye on.

You can expect to see some outfit pictures soon, wearing this babies!

La verdad es que no se si estos zapatos se consideran cuñas o son tacones de los gruesos, de igual forma son un estupendo par, realmente cómodos. Me enamore de ellos por primera vez cuando los vi en la tienda de Acne Studios en el centro de Los Angeles y de inmediato los añadí a mi wishlist.

Solo tengo otro par de cuñas (o tacones de verano) que compré hace años de Isabel Marant y la verdad es que los uso un montón en estas fechas sobre todo para salir por la noche ya sea de cena o de fiesta. Con el calor que hace en verano en Madrid llevar zapato de tacón cerrado se hace insoportable así que necesitaba algo en esta línea. Tuve suerte de encontrar el último par online en mi talla, porque la verdad de los otros que tenia vistos este es el que cumplía con todos los elementos que buscaba.

Pronto subiré fotos de conjunto con ellos!
