Fashion Criminal: Lily Allen


And that, right there, is why I’ve always maintained that trainers should only ever be worn at the gym. And yes, I know that "trainers with a vintage style dress" is Lily Allen’s "thing". And yes, I’m willing to concede that, with the right accessories, this dress could almost be cute. The trainers, though, are not the right accessories. They make the whole outfit look frumpy, and make Lily here look like a worn down mother of five – all she needs is to swap the bag for a tatty old Tesco carried and the look will be complete.

Go on, Lily, ditch the trainers – you know it makes sense.

    I’d carry the bag. The rest is…well…strange. I don’t do sneakers unless it’s a gym trip, and the dress to me is very “hospital nurse/matron”. Not my style unless I’m painting, and wearing it over something I actually care about.
