chunky sneakers in the spotlight

Balanciaga debuting the Triple S at their FW17 runway show and people went crazy this. To be honest, I really had to get used to this chunky sneaker trend. I wasn’t sure if I would join in. Which is often the case with new trends right?!

Two years later now, and the chunky sneaker trend is here to stay. I don’t want to wear anything else anymore. These sneakers make any look so cool, the right amount of edge I am looking for my casual chic style. Hence, chunky sneakers in the spotlight! 

"The chunkier it is, the closer you are to Heaven"

6 Ways to Pair
Chunky Sneakers

Outfit 1, Taking the Trench Out
I like how my Nike Airmax 95 fits perfectly with my trench coat from And Other Stories, it adds a casual twist to my chic outfit. It was sunny enough for a bright-hued outfit but chilly enough that I had to pick a long trenchcoat for the day. 

Outfit 2, Amsterdam: Lilac in Spring
Channeling the spring season with something pastel with this lilac-colored River Island coat and checkered pants while keeping it chic with the Chloe Faye and casual with Sandro chunky sneakers.

Outfit 3, Abu Dhabi: Casual Glam
When you want to look glam and comfortable at the same time, pick your favourite suit like this one from Storm and Marie then pair it with a chic crop top like the one from Weekday that I was wearing, and of course your favourite pair of chunky sneakers.

These brown pants from Vanilia truly fit with so many items to mix and match with. In fact, I made a special blogpost highlighting ways to mix and match these staple pants and create different vibes just with a single pants that you can check here

Outfit 5, Amsterdam: Keep It Pastel
I bought this coat in Hong Kong, which was my go-to coat this winter. Pairing it with a pastel pink top and a beige Chanel bag to complete the pastel look and of course, my favorite chunky sneakers fit perfectly to my outfit.

Outfit 6, Abu Dhabi: Museum Day Out
For a casual day in the museum, I opted for a loose boyfriend shirt and a bright yellow pants from Storm and Marie. Finishing the look with a twist by adding a statement bag from Mae and Ivy and a pair of bright-coloured chunky sneakers by Sandro.
