I am very excited to announce that Keds are back! If you haven’t heard of Keds, they are a classic American shoe brand that has been around since 1916 and have dressed the feet of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn. The styles are simple yet fun and I’ve recently had a peek at their AW15 styles and can’t wait until they come out. I’m talking polka dots, paisley prints and pineapples – how can you go wrong?
When I was about 14, everyone wanted a pair of Keds – they were cool to own and I had a pair just like the ones I am wearing below so I am happy that they have made a reappearance in my life. I’ve been reunited at last with my classic white Keds kicks and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Getting My Kicks With Keds
Keds go so well with an outfit like the one below and inject a bit of playfulness in everyday wear. I’m not one to wear towering heels around London and you would be more likely to find me in a pair of Converse (and now my new Keds, like the ones I am wearing here).
I am the one you can always find who will have a pair of trainers in my bag at all times, who walks to work in comfortable shoes and who often wears shorts under short skirts. I like to be comfortable. Keds are a dream to walk in and provide enough support without being too heavy or cumbersome.
I’ve gone for a simple look and paired my Keds with a white blazer from French Connection, a yoga top from Hanro, shorts from Primark (that just landed – get em’ while they’re hot) and a Knomo clutch (which I picked up from an amazing sample sale in Shoreditch).
