The off-duty update: Colorful sneakers

Deborah Reyner Sebag

They may not help you to reach your 2019 fitness goals, but ‘ugly’ sneakers will definitely give you a head start in the style race. This season’s contenders, from the likes of Balenciaga, Adidas, Gucci and Chloé, are brighter, bolder and designed to be worn with everything from tailoring to oversized dresses and evening sequins. In fact, anything goes, which means you don’t have to break a sweat to ace this accessory. Just remember: unexpected pairings produce the best results.
