puma-mysetre.jpgWhen it comes to trainers, I always find slightly retro styles a little easier to wear because they tend to be that bit sleeker and narrower than many of the chunky, rugged styles around now. These Mystere Chevron trainers by Puma get my vote, then, not just because of their retro looks, but because of the gold uppers which help glam them up a little and make them a good choice for those casual Fridays where you want to dress comfortably but don't quite know where the day will take you. They're $75 from Piperlime.
