8 Sneakers From Lakmé Fashion Week 2021 That Caught Our Attention
Sneaker galore, here we come
They are comfy. They are versatile. And they are gender fluid. There’s something about a good pair of sneakers that stand the test of time and find a way to blend into every sartorial aesthetic. Whether it’s pairing chunky dad sneakers with a linen dress or a breezy ethnic silhouette with the classic white trainers, sky is the limit when it comes to styling these kicks. This year, the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2021 witnessed something similar. Celebrated designers sent models down the runway with a vibe that was rather chill, understated and honestly, relatable. Think breezy athleisure with comfy footwear, which has been a big mood lately.
From Payal Singhal’s bomber jacket lehengas with white sneakers to the iconic Masaba prints on tracksuits with edgy kicks, here’s how designers incorporated sneakers in the spring-summer wardrobe this season. Swipe through:
Bodice by Ruchika Sachdeva
Add drama to your simple outfit with abstract, graffiti emblazoned sneakers as seen at Bodice.
Chola By Sohaya Misra
For the ultimate summer look, opt for an XXL shirt dress and high-top sneakers. Finish the look with a top knot and a bold black eyeliner.
If you love experimenting then consider this your calling. Elevate your everyday sneakers with a pair of knee-high socks to add that extra element to your overall look. Take cues from Huemn.
For the edgy side in you, turn to sneakers with heels or platforms. Our say: layer your silhouettes as seen at Raffughar and pair the outfit with high-heeled sneakers for a quick modish look.
Acing print on print can seem like a minefield. But with lace-up, white sneakers on your feet, pulling off the outfit will be made easier. Take inspiration from this look seen at Khanijo.
Want to achieve that girl-next-door vibe in an instant? It’s simple. Opt for an overall or monotone tracksuit, add a headband, cool sunnies, solid sneakers and dewy makeup for max effect.
Who said you cannot take your kicks out for a party? Take inspiration from Siddartha Tytler and pair your sequins with metallic or chromatic sneakers to slip into your party element.
