Strolling effortlessly in your stilettos while cradling a toddler in one hand and struggling with your shopping bags in another is a total feat. So rather than attempting to look elegant and graceful in those heels, why not put on on some cool kicks instead? Comfortable yet versatile, the current sneakers trend is a saviour to chic, busy mums. Scroll through the list of our favourite celeb mummies who nailed the sneakers look for more inspiration:
1. Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel paired her all-white sneakers with a long dress, finished off with a leather jacket for an edgy feminine vibe — just the right outfit for Sunday brunch with the family,
2. Dee Hsu
Dee Hsu strolled the streets of Milan in this casual yet chic ensemble when she was in the stylish city for Milan Fashion Week 2016 earlier this year. Decked in neutral shades, the all-white sneakers stood out against the classic denims and Dee looked right at home in fashion central.
3. Christine Fan
Mum to a pair of adorable twin boys, Christine Fan (affectionately and more commonly known as Fan Fan) paired her black Nike with a camo-print top for a laid-back chic look that is equal parts comfy and cool.
4. Kate Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge looked great in this sporty black get-up after a high-speed boat race in Portsmouth earlier this month. Though it’s a far cry from Kate’s usual poised and polished get-ups, we’re still loving the pop of turquoise on her black Adidas and absolutely digging her casual-cool outfit.
5. Kate Hudson
Have legs for days? Then, take a cue from the beautiful Kate Hudson, who looked like she was having lots of fun in her laced up high tops from Supra paired with cute shorts.
6. Gwyneth Paltrow
Boho queen Gwyneth Paltrow looked ethereal in a see-through Valentino maxi dress unexpectedly pulled over pristine-white sneaks. This boho-glam look is high on our to-try list.
7. Alessandra Ambrosio
The Brazilian beauty and Victoria’s Secret model nailed the off-duty model chic look with simple all white sneakers to match her black skinnies, bomber jacket and ultra-cute cross-body white bag. Bonus points for her messy bun.
8. Michelle Obama
“This affects all of us. Play and nutrition and overall investment in our kids —whether they can read and think and engage — it’s just not enough for us to be okay with so many kids not having that at an excellent level.” —The First Lady was joined by her brother and @ESPN analyst, Craig Robinson, at the @AspenInstitute’s #ProjectPlay to talk about growing up on the South Side of Chicago and the value of sports in the lives of children today. #LetsMove
Think sneakers would never cut it for official business? You’ve obviously never seen Michelle Obama in action. FLOTUS elevated her pair of black sneakers with a sharp leather jacket and well-tailored pants, seamlessly blending an otherwise corporate attire with an athletic touch. We love how she dressed for the occasion as she shared about the value of sports at a recent event. Such a style icon!
