10 pastel trainers for girls – a la Chanel SS14

I’m still obsessed with my pink, black and leopard print Nike Air Max, so I was delighted to see Chanel rocking a series of delightfully ladylike pastel-coloured trainers at Paris Fashion Week…

Good old Lagerfeld sent his chicks, including the brow herself, Cara Delevingne, down the runway in beautiful dresses, signature tweed suits, crazy layered tulled and frou frou tiers, all with classic training shoes.

God, I hope this catches on.

These days I love nothing more than wearing a pencil skirt with my pumps. So comfy, but still stylish (or that’s what I tell myself).

Look for pastel shades, pinks and greys, and opt for running shoe shapes, not baseball styles. Wear with straight knee-length skirts or minis, short dresses, three quarter length trousers and luxe leggings.

If the gorgeous and perfectly pink Nike Air Max trainers above don’t do it for you, I’d choose from the following:

Adidas @ John Lewis, £45

Nike @ Office, £94.99

Adidas @ Office, £61.99

Saucony @ Office, £32 (sale price)

New Balance @ Urban Outfitters, £40 (sale price)

Clarks, £49.99

Nike @ John Lewis, £85

Faith @ Debenhams, £35
New Balance @ Office, £69.99
