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.

In the May 2020 issue of Smithsonian magazine I came across an intriguing article titled, “A Half-Century of Trips,” written by Ted Scheinman, (a writer and scholar based in Southern California). This features a subhead that reads, “Americans have steadily become more dedicated travelers, despite historic setbacks.”
This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
