Get over tow­er­ing plat­forms and dizzy­ing heels. The hottest style trend says — choose head over heels. Our Bol­ly­wood beau­ties have swapped those killer six-inch­ers with comfy pairs of sneak­ers. Ac­tors such as Neha Dhu­pia, Kan­gana Ra­naut and Deepika Padukone were spot­ted fear­lessly team­ing their dresses with fun sneak­ers. Ex­perts say that the con­cept of glamming up sports shoes is novel and evolv­ing. “Cou­ture sneak­ers has really picked up in the past couple of years with sports luxe be­com­ing a big trend. Also, I am all for the school of thought where com­fort can be fil­tered into fash­ion. But, there must be a spe­cial el­e­ment to the sneak­ers that will save you from look­ing like you’re com­ing straight out of the gym,” says de­signer Nachiket Barve.

De­signer Sa­mant Chauhan says that the trend of mix­ing sports­wear with ca­sual glam­our is a global one. “Even though I think it might be a short-term trend when it comes to the red car­pet, it is definitely very in. To make it more fun, an out­fit can be colour­blocked with sneak­ers,” he says. And, it’s also about pick­ing the right pair. “Pair­ing sneak­ers with your dress is a handy so­lu­tion for girls who dis­like heels. A be­jew­elled pair is all you need to add some quirk into your style,” says de­signer Jen­jum Gadi. When choos­ing a pair, go for one that says util­i­tar­ian chic. “The sneak­ers should not be bulky. From colours to em­broi­dery, go for a pair that spells sporty cool,” sug­gests Barve.
