7th April: National Walk to Work Day – Ashley Williams AW2020

If you’re up for walking to work instead of driving or taking public transport, here’s some sneakers you could wear instead. I wish I had all of these in my wardrobe, I just hardly ever wear sneakers so I rarely ever buy any. These styles are good for both casual outfits and dressing up a bit, but you could always change into more formal shoes once you get to work if sneakers aren’t in the dress code, or you don’t want to look too casual. Most of these run in both men’s and women’s sizes.

9th April: National Name Yourself Day – M1992 AW2018 Menswear

National Name Yourself Day is about giving yourself a new name, and possibly also a new personality to go with that name. It’s a celebration of reinvention through the name change, and studies have actually shown that your personality can be affected by your name, so it might be worth a try. Changing your clothes can be a way to reinvent yourself for the day, maybe try something from these suggestions?
