I just bought my first pair of trainers in about five years and I’m more excited about wearing them that I thought I’d be. Unsurprisingly, I opted for a pair of Adidas Sambas but, when they arrived, I had a mild panic. How do you style trainers in 2024? As someone who rotates between a capsule of minimal, black leather boots in the winter, loafers in spring and autumn, and simple slider sandals come summer, I had all but forgotten how to make trainers work in my wardrobe. So, I did the natural thing and went straight to Instagram and TikTok, on the hunt for some trainer styling inspo. And, go figure, everyone’s wearing their trainers with trousers right now.
Of course, trousers and trainers go hand-in-hand as a foolproof outfit combination. Still, seeing as trousers are probably the most amenable item in terms of matching up with footwear, you would have thought the shoe options would be more varied. But no, it seems everyone is wearing their trousers exclusively with trainers at the moment. Keen to get this pairing right and coordinate it with pieces I already own, I began saving down my favourite trouser and trouser outfits as I found them. Below are nine I think showcase the combination at its best.
So, scroll on to see the chicest trainer-and-trouser outfits to copy this season (I know I will be).
