Join the Revolution: How to Style Up Your Runners

by Assumpta Pinto on
It’s finally here: the era where women are taking centre stage and being recognised and heard for who they really are. Paving that new path are modern shoe trends – giving women the freedom to live, breathe, and walk. Runners, which are winning this revolutionary race, are no longer relegated to activewear and lazy days. They are conquering the High Street Fashion scene with real solutions for real women.


As style statements, runners are a welcome fashion surprise, adding a cool sophistication to any outfit and ushering in a new decade where women’s shoe fashions meet real life. They are effortlessly vibrant and liberating, enabling women to walk with bold purpose - in fearless style. Comfortable and practical, while being a showstopping trend among shoes online, sneakers know what it is to walk a mile in a woman’s shoes! 

If you’re ready to join this style movement, there are many ways to dress up your beloved trainers. PurpleTag’s shoes online are ready to give you some inspiration.


The Elegant and Formal Sneaker

 Runners can transform a formal outfit with understated elegance. For a soft and minimalistic look, simple white sneakers are fresh and effortlessly stylish, creating that #wokeuplikethis kind of natural beauty. Styling white sneakers with classic linen trousers or a soft slip dress will evoke a breezy and feminine - almost Mediterranean - quality!

For some chic elegance, remember that monochromatic colours never go out of style, especially when they’re in black. Black runners with a straight line black dress or skirt will lend a classy and confident look, getting you ready to be a Ms Bossy Boots - in sneaker style!

If you’re not defined by boxes, you can be a ‘sneakers and pearls kind of girl’ and get away with it! Combine the overstated and understated for the fun side of refined life. Formal lunch meetings will be a walk in the park!

The Whimsical and Everyday Sneaker

 Whatever your day-to-day activities, runners are your gal pals. Whether you are sitting at a café or running errands, you can sport the cute and sassy look with ease. Wear a frilly summer dress with some chunky runners and you’ll be the sweetheart of the town (with a mind of her own). Replace these with the chunky sole of flatform sneakers and you’re bound to step into every room with attitude.
