Theresa May's Sneaker Style


With the popularity of athleisure, there's no reason why sneakers can't be as fashionable as a pair of flats or high heels!

Theresa May is known for her love of fancy flats and kitten heels, but her sneakers are equally as cool.

First up, is a snazzy leopard pair from Emma Hope. The PM has had these for a few years, and typically wears them when out canvassing. A great choice!

Her second super sneaker is this very patriotic Union Jack pair. Similar to Converse, the PM wore these whilst attending the World Rowing Cup in Eton Dorney in 2013. Bring these back!

And her most recent sneaker purchase? A pair of classic white Converse for her Italian summer holiday last year. May also wore them on a visit to Wales.

Local election campaigning and Maidenhead: Theresa May's Week


Theresa May was rightly on her Easter break this week- walking in Wales! But she did join in with some local election campaigning in London on her return.

Out and about in Chingford, the PM knocked doors with activists. She also debuted a fancy new scarf, teaming it with the Delicious leopard flats from Russell & Bromley, a sophisticated black jacket and trousers and her Herno jacket.

The perfect canvassing outfit!

And on Friday, May attended the Maidenhead Association dinner. Looking glam in her black lace jumpsuit and sparkly accessories, May wore her patent red LK Bennett kitten heels to complete the look.

The many gloves of Theresa May


Gloves are an essential accessory for us girls in the UK. The unpredictable weather and often chilly temps can make cold hands a miserable affair.

Theresa May knows the importance of a good pair of gloves. From studded to suede, leather to lace, the PM has a great glove collection - here are some of our favourites!

No collection would be complete without a pair of leopard gloves. We haven't seen May wear these for a while, but she rocked them with other leopard accessories back in 2014. Bring them back Prime Minister!

Red is a hue that frequently appears in Theresa May's wardrobe, and gloves are no exception. May wore this suede pair in 2015 as part of a state visit.

May also has a short red leather pair- here seen on a visit to Sandhurst in 2017.

And we particularly love these striking long black gloves with red geometric bow detailing that May wore in 2014 for the Singapore state visit to the UK. They bring an edge to her grey tweed Paule Ka skirt suit.

Let's not forget about this black pair with zip detailing! Again May teamed them with her Paule Ka suit.

We've seen these long black gloves with lace detailing frequently over the past several months. Here the PM wore them on her way to Manchester to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act.

A similar pair is available from Cornelia James- they might even be a match!

May understands protocol to a T, and when meeting the Queen or other members of the Royal Family, she will often wear a pair of gloves. We've seen her don a short brown leather pair to meet Her Majesty, as well as to welcome the King of Spain to the UK in 2017.

And what about our favourite pair? We love this black studded pair that May has had for a little while- their last big outing was to China earlier this year!

The Commons and the Brexit tour: Theresa May's Week


Theresa May travelled to all four nations of the United Kingdom this week, marking a year till Brexit.

But on Monday, she was in the House of Commons delivering an update on the European Summit meeting. The PM wore her light blue blazer, teaming it with a navy skirt and the leopard Charlotte Olympia Kitty heels. She accessorised with a simple string of pearls.

On Tuesday, May appeared before the House of Commons Liaison Committee, answering questions from Committee chairs. May wore her black and white Escada blazer, teaming it with a black skirt and the red Link In block heels from Russell & Bromley. She accessorised with a deep red jewelled necklace.

On Wednesday, May was in the Commons chamber again for the weekly Prime Minister's Questions. She debuted a new navy stripe jacket from Daniel Blake, and a navy skirt. May selected the navy Twiggy kitten heels from Russell & Bromley and accessorised with a string of pearls.

On Thursday, the PM travelled to Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England as part of her Year to Brexit tour. May wore a brown flecked jacket and black trousers and the leopard Delicious flats from Russell & Bromley. Her navy Herno jacket was the perfect outerwear for being on the road (and air!)
