The trend of red sweatshirts continues to appear in chic spring attire

If there’s one thing I know about fashion right now, it’s that trainers are all the rage. Of course, trainers have never really been around and are seen as the main shoe option, but trainers have become popular in the last few years. It’s more than just a comfortable shoe solution. Apparently we’re all a little obsessed with sneakers. Even I, who rarely wore them until 2024, gave myself a fresh pair. Like many others, I opted for white Adidas Sambas, but as my desire for fashionable trainers grows, so do my shopping options.

The market is currently saturated with sneakers. While certain pairs are always subject to a waiting list, there are also many trainers that are nearly impossible to obtain at this time. Like the Onitsuka Tigers and Nike’s various collaborations, Samba is one of them, but lately I’ve noticed that some trainer trends are harder to track than others.

I first started noticing the rise of the red trainer trend earlier this year and the re-emergence of Adidas’ suede gazelle. This style isn’t new, but the volume of color the brand explored in his 2024 release certainly felt like it. Green sneakers are a common sight on social media, but red trainers are trending right now. Red shoes are trending all over this year, with everything from high-heeled slingbacks to ballet flats adorned in various shades of burgundy, crimson, and chile. Needless to say, the trend is coming to trainers as well.

What’s so appealing about the red sweatshirt trend is that it’s proven to be incredibly versatile. Nowadays, I see people on social media styling their outfits in what would typically be completed with black or tan loafers. Jeans, tailored pants, shorts, skirts, you name it. The red trainer will work with them all. The growing selection of statement shoes proves that they can be just as hard-working as those considered “classic.”

Still, red itself is considered a classic color trend. At least the ones that don’t actually date. In my wardrobe hangs a red dress that I bought more than ten years ago, and it still feels just as relevant today. So if you’re looking to embrace spring’s colorful sweatshirt trend, going with red kicks might be the smartest move.
