Praise the style gods – the sneaker trend is going strong (in all its comfy glory). Haven’t tried the look yet?Rue La La Stylist Caroline M. is giving you four types to test out – and showing you how to style each.
For pristine sneaks: You tried the normcore trend and now you have white canvas sneakers to keep clean. Common sense might suggest throwing them in the wash, but don’t – it leads to yellow-tinged rubber.
For years, the most talked-about trends were thought to be unique, unexpected, and exciting. Then, just when we were getting the hang of things, normcore happened. Lost? Let’s take a closer look at the style so average, it’s edgy.
