Ways To Get More Life Out Of Your Stan Smiths Adidas

6 Ways To Get More Life Out Of Your Stan Smiths

The Debrief: Kick back in style with a little Instagram education

Trainer trends are fickle. One minute, everyone is buying adidas Stan Smiths and the next Vans. Before you know it the trainers that were hot to trot last month suddenly seem more dated than adding a Valencia filter to your holiday snaps. For those of us without money trees raining cold hard cash a the snap of a branch and with an eye for getting more wear out of kicks, don’t dump your adidas creps just yet. Here is a guide to getting a little more life out of your S. Smiths…

1. Dot To Dot

As we’re stanning for Stan’s right now, we’re not ashamed to say that they go with everything. Proof: a polka dot mini dress and these trainers are an unlikely match that works. 

2. Minty Fresh

Whether your sneaks are white or pale green, try matching them to a tulle skirt. The soft, flowing layers will add a romantic touch to your comfy kicks. 

3. Roll Up, Roll Up

Show your stripes like singer SZA in oversized dungarees and delicate change necklaces. The hint of ankle instantly slims the voluminous silhouette. 

4. Turn It Down

Take a luxuriously soft camel coat and add jeans, a cap and Stan Smiths and suddenly you have a dreamy high-low outfit that will see you through winter. 

5. Summer Lovin’

Keep chill on a steamy summer day in a white sundress and slip-on trainers. There’s something enviably easy about this look by French blogger Lyna Benz.

6. Sheer Joy

Reveal and conceal your limbs at your leisure with a sheer black skirt. The longer hemline will counter the dangerous heights of a miniskirt while adding a witchy feel to your standby Stan’s.
