Styling tips for Women

It’s no secret that we are all inner magpies! Anything with a sparkle makes anyone smile. Embellishments and sequins are a popular trend, and look even better when paired with Vans. Follow a few of our simple style guidelines to conquer being best dressed:

1.If you decide to wear a feminine dress (covered in sequins), toughen the look with Sk8 Hi Reissue in black velvet.

2.Explore new Vans when wearing wide-leg trousers, experiment with colour and texture to achieve an on trend great look. We suggest Era 59s or classic slip ons.

3.We adore a full length suit paired with trainers, if you’re worrying that you wont achieve a formal look, why not invest in an Old Skool in black velvet? Black velvet is answer to most formal woes.

4.Fun little tip: showing off your vans with feminine dresses is the way forward, there are no boundaries to this style trend. Add some fun socks to your look.

Styling tips for Men

Any man would be over the moon to wear their favorite trainers instead of restricting formal shoes ( well we would like to think so) We especially love that trainers are a more popular shoe choice and becoming more socially acceptable to sport in more formal occasions. Looking to rock your Vans for end of year functions, follow our handy tips:

1.If you’re wanting to wear Vans to more formal events, be sure that you choose smart/dark trousers paired with a classic blazer.

2.Always assure your Vans are in top shape, keeping them fresh will also help you get away with wearing trainers to formal occasions

3.Styles like the Sk8 Hi and Old Skool are now available in velvet, perfect with any attire (this is a subtle warning to shop now before they sell out!)

4.Not all end of year functions are formal, that’s where the versatility of the Vans shoe comes into play. You can wear the trainer with any outfit. Wanting to add your own signature touch? Spice it up with some fun coloured socks.
