Thanks to the comfort footwear pounding many of the designer catwalks recently plus being sported on some of our favourite celebs, the trend has quickly filtered to the high street. In stores and online, sophisticated styles take a myriad of forms, making the look accessible to every woman, at any age. Not only do fashion trainers look great on anyone, but they're also fast becoming the must-have item for this season.
The great thing about a pair of stylish fashion trainers is that they're incredibly comfortable. High heels may make our legs look slimmer but it can be hard to find a pair that doesn't leave our feet aching by the end of the night. With a pair of flat shoes on, you can walk and stand without any fear of blisters or pain.
From 'skater' style slip-ons with chunky soles to the sportswear brand favourites that are fast becoming fashion must-haves, there's a style for every taste. The key to making the trend work for you? Treat your trainers as part of your every day wardrobe. Work them with tailored separates, crisp shirts - even skirts when the moment takes you.
Your new fashion trainer should hold the same status as all your other smart flats - it's time to change your mindset... and your footwear! Keep reading to discover our pick of the hottest fashion trainers to update your look...
