7 Easy Trouser-and-Trainer Outfits I'm Stealing From Celebrities

As we ride the wave of winter, it's easy to focus all our attention on boots in the footwear department. We've given a lot of time to the function and ease of a great pair of boots, from ankle skimmers to thigh-high beauties. But our favourite celebrities keep reminding us just how relevant

trainers remain, even in these cooler months. 

Right now, you've probably noticed a few trends in the sneaker world. Colourful trainers are having a real moment, with 

Sambas and Gazelles becoming increasingly vibrant. New Balance continues to be a fashion-follower favourite and Onitsuka Tiger's yellow trainers have taken Instagram by storm. The glory of trainers is truly in their versatility. They're comfortable, easy to wear and even easier to style. You can wear them all year round, from tracksuit days to summer holidays, with maxi dresses or miniskirts, but right now, with the weather as it is, many fashionable faces are opting for trousers to showcase their new kicks. 

Jeans are an easy option when considering trousers to pair with your trainers, but there are plenty more styles out there to choose from. Below, you'll see that Sofia Richie Grainge selected trending cargo pants to create a tonal head-to-toe look, whilst Laura Harrier's wide-leg trousers take on the trending silhouette of 2024. For those looking for a smart-casual option, Gigi Hadid paired a denim jacket with tailored trousers and simple white sneakers for a look that works just as well for the airport as the office.
