Fashion Bloggers Show How to Wear the Monochrome Trend

Over the past few seasons, the humble sneaker has been transformed from a casual weekend shoe to a staple style in every man and woman’s wardrobe. Sneaker aesthetics have changed dramatically in recent years, but the monochrome trainer is the one style that is utterly timeless. Built with crisp lines and clean designs, the monotrainer is one of the most versatile shoes in anyone’s wardrobe. Whether dressed up to give a sleek suit some casual edge or dressed down for the weekend, the monotrainer is the one trend worth investing in season after season.

AllSole caught up with some of our favourite fashion bloggers for inspiration on how to wear the monochrome trend.
