Celebs ditch neons, metallics for classic white sneakers
Remember the white sports shoes you wore to school when you had to battle it out during PT classes? Well, let’s just say, that trend is back, with an adult twist, of course. Bollywood celebrities are sporting the trend, and wearing white sneakers as they travel, or go out for a film promotion. We wonder, what’s making the trend so popular even in the tricky monsoon season.
Designer Nikhil Mehra says, “Social media has helped boost this trend, with celebs flaunting their picks daily.” For designer Troy Costa, it’s the classic appeal of these sneakers that makes the difference. “Since they are a classic pick, you can rarely go wrong with a pair. Wear them with a dress or even a tuxedo and you are going to make a statement,” he says. “While wearing white sneakers in monsoon can be daunting because your white won’t remain white once you step out, they remain popular because of the varied ways in which they can be styled,” says stylist Vikram Seth.
