As much as we love sandals, trainers are a great way to switch it up. A chic pair of trainers is a must-have for spring and summer, but really they're great year-round. Wear yours casually with a pair of jeans as Christine of Hello Fashion Blog does or with a dress on date night.

Thin, strappy sandals, like this pair on Anabelle of VivaLuxury, are a major trend for the season. A lace-up style is the perfect mix of effortless and chic, making this the prettiest pair for a night out.
