Back to basics

Retro runners are a huge trend right now and are often the footwear of choice with the fashion crowd. They can be seen at every fashion show, press event, snapped away by fashion photographers. Are they relevant in our (regular mortals) wardrobes though?

I have been loving this trend and I think we all need a pair of retro runners in our lives! If they’re suede and colorful, even better. Which is why I’m indulging in red & blue PUMA Suedes right now. I know a lot of my friends would look quizzically at them wondering what to wear them with. The answer is really simple. Pretty much with everything!

They’re a great way of toning down a dressy outfit (be it a tulle dress, a mini skirt or an embroidered jacket) and because they’re flat, you can be a little bit more adventurous with your hem line 😉
I paired mine with a high-waisted mini skirt and a cropped top. An outfit that would not look suitable for a day time in a city if worn with a pair of heels (unless you really like a lot of attention). The PUMA Suedes make this look really fun and inject some colour into it.
