I know a lot of people use the weather to depict the colour scheme of which their wardrobe will be, of course to some extent this makes sense, but with the incredible amount of white clothes that are available at the moment, I honestly don’t see how I can ever let this colour go, like ever ever. It may sound cheesy but I feel like there’s an element of sophistication and coolness that white pieces of clothing possess, so if someone is in all white, my gosh, they’re probably looking mighty fine. Of course the downfalls are many, starting with the basic: Keeping your whites, white. I’m not exactly the kind of person to run into muddy puddles and roll round against walls of buildings as I pass them (..I have genuinely seen people do this) nonetheless mess finds me, mess finds us all.

So picture this, I’m walking around thinking I’m all sophisticated in my all white outfit and things get pretty messy; the outfit’s coolness depreciates so fast, it’s a little depressing and my whites become browny grey & you can tell, it wasn’t the ‘look’ I was going for.
Coming back to reality, Foot Locker let me pick a pair of trainers from their All-White collection that’s in stores/ available online now, challenging me to keep them clean for a week! A week! I mean that’s a pretty fair amount of time, right? How dirty could they really get in a week..
Yeah..so they’re not black or anything but they’re definitely not their original crisp white selves, but it was worth a try!
Currently on Footlocker.eu they have listed a few basic ways to ensure that your sophisticated and cool look doesn’t turn sloppy but in case none of them work for you, perhaps try this..
