Chunky sneakers have been trending for what seems like forever. Simultaneously adding a splash of modernism with 90’s vintage influencer to any outfit, we’re big fans. But, they’re certainly a statement piece. Often coming in bold colourways with heavy platforming, we understand that styling chunky sneakers can feel scary or overwhelming for first-timers. Once you crack it, you’ll want to wear them with every outfit, adding a twist to casual and formal attire alike. Our trusty Ash sneakers have taken us from the office to clubs to city days, looking slick with everything in our wardrobe. To kick start your addiction and offer outfit suggestions, here’s how we love styling chunky sneakers.
#1 A splash of colour
For the office, all-black outfits are a go-to. Black tailored trousers with a tight fit polo neck or a little jumper give us Parisian vibes with a big dose of business-approved comfort. Topped off with simple accessories, rings and little hoops, the problem often hits when it comes to shoes. While kitten heels might push the look into over-dressed but flats might feel lack-lustre, we always reach for a bold chunky sneaker. Adding a dash of colour into the mix and bringing some streetwear cool vibes to the outfit, styling chunky sneakers with an all-black look is easy. We’d opt for a running style trainer with muted colour details such as peach, blue or grey tones. The structure of the sneaker keeps the put-together outfit looking smart and tailored, but is modern enough to give you style credit. If you’re feeling bold, you could even go for bright colours, a favourite look for the fashion crowd styling chunky sneakers at fashion weeks worldwide.
