All Star Line Up with The Girl With The Bob
Fashion Blogger The Girl With The Bob stuns in Converse!
The humble white sneaker would have to be the ultimate wardrobe staple for your shoe collection, regardless of the season. Ticking all the boxes when it comes to style, comfort as well as being relentlessly versatile, getting dressed day to day is made that little bit easier by having a trusty pair in your arsenal. Many would know Converse for their timeless high and low top Chuck Taylor’s, but the brand have now expanded their collection with new styles, colourways and fabrications. I know I have gone through many pairs of classic Chucks over the years so it felt right to make a change and opt for a slightly dressier, leather pair of the 1 Star Ox instead. Branded with the classic one star logo and a subtle red and blue stripe, these sneakers are great quality, super comfortable and an effortless match to so many outfits. So take a look below to see three ways I’ve styled up my new favourite sneakers:
Ideal for a casual day in town or taking a stroll by the Prom in the sunshine, pairing your white trainers with a t-shirt and shorts is a no-brainer. I’ve opted for a simple band tee for a cooler edge and to capitalise on the ever growing slogan/logo tee trend. Normally I would reach for a pair of denim cut offs here, but to add a little interest I’ve gone with a pair of cargo shorts instead. Seemingly a key look for the summer, the beige looks fresh with the white trainers and brightens the black t-shirt too.
This check blazer dress is such a handy piece to throw on and will effortlessly take you from a day shopping to dinner and a few drinks in the evening. There’s no need to sacrifice comfort for style here as the structured shape and eye catching print keep it polished even when worn with sneakers! I’ve added a belt to nip in the waist a little more as well as statement earrings and a beaded bag to further elevate the outfit and make it more adaptable from day to night.
Because we know the Irish Summer is not always sunshine and high temperatures, a trusty ‘jeans and a nice top’ combo never goes astray. A pair of cropped jeans is nice to flash a little bit of ankle and show off the trainers. I personally prefer a straight leg, but these Converse still work perfectly with skinny jeans too. You could always add a novelty sock to add some more sass to the look too! Liven up a simple ensemble with a statement blouse in a bold colour and print. Opt for interesting proportions or a full sleeve for bonus styling points!
The beauty of a classic white trainer is that it works with any colour, print or fabrication. A style that can be adapted to suit a multitude of outfits, no matter the season is a failsafe piece to have at your disposal.
