Trends: chunky sneakers are alive and kicking for fall-winter 2018!

Obsessed with chunky sneakers? Stop thinking they could be unfashionable this year: these “ugly” shoes will be, once again, a hot trend for fall-winter 2018! Nothing new? Well, not at all: if last year chunky sneakers are still trending, the new ugly sneakers will be even… uglier!


Fall-winter 2018 collections catwalk shows already showed us how chunky sneakers are a must-have for the next season. The stranger and bigger they are, the better! Gucci designed a hybrid shoe, similar to a hiking boot but also to a sneaker and embellished with jewels like a red carpet shoe, while N°21 revisited the trend choosing gold as the main colour of its ugly shoe. If Balenciaga and Versace aren’t very far away from the traditional trainer style, Maison Margiela and Prada sent to the runway the sneakers we’re probably going to see the most at fashionistas’ feet: the first created a shoe similar to a basket sneaker and a snow boot, while the second designed a futuristic neon bootie.

Looking at the street style looks outside the first fashion events of the spring-summer 2019 collections, we realized how maxi platforms and oversized details will dominate the fashion scene.  Do you remember good old Buffalo shoes, which we wore (or desired) in the Nineties? Well, get ready to see them and many similar platform sneakers at your fave fashion influencers’ feet! We’re sure your Instagram feed will be full of workwear details as well, like the ones our muse Chiara Ferragni is wearing these days!

How to wear chunky sneakers in fall? You only have to take a look at the most beautiful street style looks we saw at the latest fashion weeks. Are you ready for The Blonde Salad style tips? Find them in the gallery below!


With a mini skirt

Show your legs…until the weather is still good! During fashion weeks, mini skirts are the wardrobe essentials of every cool girl. Match them with your fave chunky sneakers: you’ll have to walk and run a lot between fashion shows and presentations!

With biker shorts

Biker shorts were one of the summer fashion obsessions and we shouldn’t be surprised to see all the stylish girls out there still wearing them. For your next sporty chic looks, play on juxtapositions and wear an oversized chunky sneaker to balance biker shorts’ skinny silhouette.

With a masculine suit

Downplay the chic attitude of a masculine suit with a pair of sneakers: that’s a classic! With this outfit, you won’t be afraid to mix elegance with comfort!

With a long dress

There’s no need to match a long dress always with high heels. Chunky sneakers and gowns are the latest perfect match for fashion month, and you don’t need to be afraid to try it. That’s the unusual detail that every street style photographer is looking for outside fashion venues!
