Casual, comfortable and trendy as hell! From summer to winter, one of the only trends that truly transcends seasonal boundaries is the classic white sneaker, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.

From the white tennis-style shoes we loved as kids to the on-trend sporty-chic sneaker – we take a look at four ways over-60s can style white sneakers with any outfit!

When it comes to style, actress Sharon Stone knows what she’s doing and the Basic Instinct star is a huge fan of a classic white sneaker. Pictured here after hopping off a plane in LA, the 63-year-old is wearing a comfortable all-black ensemble paired with simple white sneakers.

We love the slip-on style, which is a great option for those who have arthritis in their hands and struggle to do up laces, or those who just can’t be bothered with laces!

Sporty-chic! Looking stylish is great, but comfort really is key and no one combines the two better than Helen Mirren. The 76-year-old is a style master, as shown here, where she paired a chic suit with bright white sneakers for a modern take on casual-smart daywear.

White sneakers are a great shoe option when you’re wearing something colourful and patterned, as shown here by Rita Wilson, 64. The actress, singer and wife of Tom Hanks stepped out in a floral-patterned jacket and pants by Italian luxury brand Gucci and a pair of white kicks.

The colourful outfit may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it shows how well white sneakers balance powerful prints. If you have a colourful dress or print blouse and are uncertain what footwear to wear, try a classic white sneaker. Rita can’t be wrong!

While Julie Bishop is known for her glam style and those statement red heels, we love her casual style just as much! Here, the former foreign minister opts for a classic casual look, styling light-blue denim with a crisp white blouse, white sneakers and pearl drop earrings. We love the tiny pop of silver on the sneaker, which adds a little extra flair to the outfit.
