Fashion is a domain in which there are far too many rules.This lavender dress is a favourite of mine, but its tendency to wrinkle and apparent season specific colour initially put me off. Although the wrinkling part is still true (I just dry cleaned it — no lie), pastels are actually a great way to offset dark, heavy or weird items. With my beloved Zara cardigan styled overtop, this dress is like a breath of fresh air in contrast to my darker items.
As for the trainers, I chose my holographic Nike Air Max that I bought in an epic trainer shop in Toronto ( I forget the title, I’ll hyperlink when I remember :). Apparently these are mens shoes, but I honestly think that’s a debatable claim. These shoes work because of their purple and green undertones, which make the dress and cardigan go together even better. And yes, you can not only wear pastels in the fall, but you can also wear holographics during the day — in small doses with casual items to offset the “disco” vibe. To finish it off, I decided on my Princess of Russia headband (as I call it), and my elephant necklace from St.Tropez!
On a more personal note, I used to post every other day during the summer. However, uni life & work has fully set in, and I’m pretty overwhelmed. Nevertheless, I will be posting on here every #trainersontuesday. Thanks for sticking around friends, and feel free to comment on how YOU style your trainers for fall (or comment anything — except spam).
Much Love ❤
