For such a long time, I was a Converse girl. Then I became a Vans girl. And then a Converse girl again. In fact until about a week ago, I hadn’t touched my Vans in about a year. Today, I’m chatting all about my favorite ways to style each shoe; for canvas-based plimsolls, they definitely give off different vibes, right..? There’s only one rule I have about them, though; white Converse, black Vans (controversial, I know).
For a while, Vans were my go-to gig going and dodgy club going shoe. They’ve been through a lot, to be honest. Sticky jam-packed clubs for teeny-tiny artists, Wembley stadium for One Direction; they’ve done it all. In fact, you can literally see bits of different clubs on these shoes (they are heading for 5 years old..). Recently, however, I’ve been loving wearing them with baggy pants and plain t-tshirts. Keeping it all very simple. I’m learning to re-appriciate them, if I’m being totally honest.
White converse (dirty, of course; can’t be dealing with pristine white Converse!), on the other hand, have been my go-to shoe in the warmer months for the past year or so. I actually ended up wearing my previous pair out last summer just before I went to the west coast and ended up replacing them in Las Vegas, of all places! I literally wear them with everything, but my favorite way to style them is a pair of jeans (blue, black, take your pick) with the bottoms rolled up with, yup you guessed it, a striped shirt of some kind. Saying that though, I have been digging my denim shirt recently, so there may be some competition there!
