White trainers are all the rage of the moment. But did you really know that they’re superbly versatile to give you varied styles? Here are three outfit inspirations that revolve around your sparkly whites. And also a few tips on keeping them squeaky clean.
1. The King Of Monochrome
Hey, you now have one part of the two colours you need to make this look work. Just throw in the right balance of black and white and you’re ready to rock the trend like a pro. Already thinking of all the permutations and combinations?
2. All About Normcore
Simple is in. And shall always be. Nail basic, clean and fuss-free styles with a pair of white trainers. All you need are a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. This season, we’re really digging raglan and ripped denim.
3. Dapper On The Street
Does your crisp, sharp suit get paired with leather lace-ups and a shirt all the time? Give it a twist and try a crew-neck tee and white plimsolls. That’s street style done with a touch of dapper… and so stylish!
HOW TO KEEP YOUR WHITE TRAINERS WHITE:
1. Prevention is better than cure. Heard that earlier? Before you start wearing a new pair of white trainers, treat them with a stain and water repellent. Repeat this process every few weeks.
2. Wipe off any spots or stains before it sets in deep. Gently wash canvas styles without scrubbing too hard. For leather trainers use a cleaning cream and cloth.
3. Handwash your canvas trainers with mild soap, instead of throwing them into the washing machine. The harsh machine process, and the heat of the dryer, can lead to discolouration, and further wear and tear.
4. Keep away from sun. White rubber turns yellow if exposed to strong sunlight. So store your favourites in cloth bags, in your closet.
