Sneakers are the new brogue – they are the choice footwear for everyone, where the rules of the office apply, but on and off duty the sneaker reins supreme. But where do you start? You want to get your casual wardrobe right, even your work one right too if you find a pair perfect for dressing down a suit and tie, or elevating dress down Fridays. Lunch with the in-laws? Slip on a pair of sleek, white sneakers with a pair of great indigo jeans and a crisp, button-down Oxford shirt and its a winning combination. Here I’ve rounded up my favourite 5 sneakers perfect for SS19 which work with every possible wardrobe combination.
