Sneakers continue to reign supreme. The style, which first gained momentum after making a debut on the Chanel spring 2014 couture runway, is still making waves past fall and into winter.

If trainers aren't your thing because they feel bulky and not so feminine, let that be a thing of the past. This season, the offerings are detailed and sleek with a futuristic edge—making them a perfect pairing for pieces in your closet that aren't reserved for the gym. The key to pulling off stylish sneakers is to wear them with an elevated piece, like a textured pencil skirt or a slouchy-streamlined pant (read: you don't want to team them with another off-duty item).

To help you dip your toe into the sporty footwear trend, we pinpointed eight stylish trainers, each with a special detail, whether it be metallic panels, rose gold finishes, or jewel embellishments.

All of these styles will elevate any look—sans heels.
