When Sneakers and Shapewear Collide

It probably comes as no surprise that the year 2020 is considered by many to be the year of Sneakers ‘n Shapewear. With the postings of the pair shown by celebs such as the Kardashians, now it seems like everyone is onto the trend. In this article, we want to shed some light for why the two seem to be so irresistible.

The Shapewear

Since the popularity of corsets and girdles, “fajas” as they’re known in latin culture have become more popular. Now, the firm fajas seem to be going mainstream. Everything from firm-fitting clothing (for waist slimming purposes) to a body suit which covers the entire body, shapewear seems to be the trend that everyone on the streets is discussing.

We’ve seen a similar trend in recent years with the rise in popularity of the athleisure trend, and now we’re seeing it more focused in to the body shaper garments paired with the right sneakers.

The Sneakers

For years, our blog has featured the sneaker industry, so it probably comes as no surprise that we’d find some way to include sneaker trends into the mix. When it comes to shapewear and sneaker culture, the trend makes sense.

The sneakers can vary from outfit to outfit with this trend. Some people prefer the color block look when pairing the shoes with shapewear and some prefer the beige-color to portray a more “nude”, neutral tone look. Sneakers have always been a way to make a statement with style, and in some ways, shapewear has followed the same trend.

What to Look For

When it comes to shapewear, you’ll want to find quality, first. Shapewear items from Colombia have always remained a “latin secret” until recently. Shapewear — or “fajas” — from Colombia are known for their reputation in the marketplace as being quality-made garments.

For sneakers, quality remains true, too. Sneaker-wise, you could pair this look with Air Force One’s or any kind of Jordan shoes.
