How to update your plimsolls for S/S 2015

Slip on plimsolls - Skaters


I have always been a great fan of sneakers, trainers, plimsolls, skaters or whatever you like to call them. They are an extremely practical form of spring/summer footwear.

This year the choices are amazing, fun, frivolous and the ideal way to add a little zizz to a simple outfit.

Depending on your personal style you could go for classic white, black or “walk on the wild side” with leopard.  Alternatively choose from a wide range of florals, prints, delicate leather cut-outs or slinky satin.

Most of the styles are not going to break the budget so be adventurous and add a touch of spice to your wardrobe.

    I love plimsolls (the word) too! Where does it come from? I bought a pair of black canvas slip-ons last fall and loved them. This Spring, I will be a traditionalist – looking for white tie-ups! Hope you are having a wonderful Easter!

      Hi Wendymm
      Interesting question. When I looked it up in Wikipedia it described them as a type of rubber soled athletic shoe often with a canvas upper. They were originally developed for beachwear in the 1830s. I think it is a very British word. I know that when I was at school plimsolls were compulsory for physical education lessons. I can still remember mine they were all black, canvas upper and rubber sole.
