Dissecting The Street Style Stars That Make The Trainer Shine

How to wear Lacoste’s four key styles with street style-approved flair


1. Super-frill flares


A trend that will satisfy your inner maximalist, the super-frill flare was one of the showiest sartorial statements on the streets of the autumn/winter 2016 show cities.

The key is to keep the trousers slightly cropped and let them do the talking; keep everything else simple, just like Ramya Giangola.

Lacoste's Straightset in navy is the perfect accompaniment, letting the statement trousers shine thanks to its classic tennis shoe silhouette, sophisticated navy hue and delicate, understated branding.


2. The pleated maxi skirt


Sports-inspired shoes have no limits these day, they can go with anything for almost any occasion, but they come into their own during fashion week when editors find themselves trekking from show to show.

Danish fashion darling Pernille Teisbeck paired a traditional sports shoe silhouette like Lacoste's two-tone Helaine Runner, which feature layered mesh for a modern feel and a white sole giving a clean and contemporary finish, with a ladylike maxi skirt and layers of cosy knits for a comfortable look that worked a charm.

3. Chic suiting


As one of the most prominent street style stars, Russian editor Miroslava Duma knows all eyes will be on her as she travels between shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

This season her standout outfit combined chic suiting in shades of camel with a pale, classic runner-style shoe similar to Lacoste's blush-hued Agadel Runner. The supple leather and premium suedette fabrication with two-tone treatment details allow this shoe to perfectly align with the look's chic-yet-relaxed vibe.

By blending a smart tailored element with a sport-inspired shoe, the look perfectly referenced the dressed-down, urban aesthetic that noticeably swept the streets during the last show season.

4. Build your look on pale pink


Pale pink is big news for spring 2016 and Lacoste's Tamora Hi is the ideal shoe to inject the colour into your wardrobe.

A timeless high-top style in nappa leather, it will work with everything from denim to pretty spring dresses, adding a retro but effortlessly on-trend vibe.

Take Storm Westphal's lead and let the style's blush tone anchor your entire look by contrasting it with an outfit in darker shades. Then throw in some gold jewellery to really make the pale pink pop.
