Sneakers - Still On Trend
For awhile, the higher the stiletto the better. Then, we had kitten heels. Remember this post - The Kitten Heel.
All the while, sprinkled a little here and a little there, sneakers have been seen on the runway.
A recent article in WSJ noted how sneakers were seen in a variety of fashion shows. Some of these shows included: Chanel Spring 2001 - Chanel & Reebok InstaPump Fury, Raf Simons Fall 2013 - RS Ozweego, Phoebe Philo at Céline Fall 2011 - Adidas Stan Smith, Balenciaga Fall 2017 - Triple-S, Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 - Archlight and the list goes on. These runway moments were on both men and women, yet, it's fair to say sneakers have popped up throughout the years. Even now, the sneaker trend seems to have staying power.
In the same WSJ edition, fashion
editor Rebecca Malinsky shared her journey of incorporating this trend into her wardrobe. For her it wasn't so much of a choice but a foot injury that propelled her to make the shift. Ultimately, she found what worked for her. She was photographed sporting New Balance sneakers with a Celine dress. In another article, the newspaper showcased a variety of sneakers, and it highlighted how there were many options; sneakers for all.
I'm all about comfort when dressing
. Of course, doing it in a way that reflects your personal style is the key. You want to ensure you choose a pair of sneakers that are an extension of you. Then, you need to ensure you pair it with an outfit that also works and reflects you. For example, maybe you are a fan of the classic Adidas Superstar. sneaker And, you are a fan of maxi dresses and skirts. It's something you could often be spotted in. Then, try pairing them together.
Alternatively, if you often wear jeans or jumpsuits and are also a fan of the same Adidas sneaker, pairing the latter with maxi dresses or skirts may not seem reflective of you. It sounds simple, but it's so important with any trend - to still be you.
Regardless of how you style your sneakers, one of the best things I've seen about this trend
is the acceptance of sneakers in the workplace. Of course, this may still vary depending on where you work. Yet, by adding your personal style to the sneakers, they will seem natural, and no one needs to realize how comfortable you are.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!
I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
