WEARING RIGHT NOW


The Trend


The rise of activewear is well and truly upon us. Sports elements have been gracing the catwalks for a few seasons now, almost every high street store is launching a fitness collection (even I've succumbed to the Topshop x Beyonce hype) and it's never been so acceptable to wear your yoga pants everywhere but the gym. As much as I'm in love with my new Ivy Park leggings that are so firming I feel like Bey herself, wearing them to events and meetings in the city isn't quite so practical. Enter the sports luxe trend - the perfect hybrid between athletic details and work-wear appropriate pieces. Almost as comfortable and the best way to nail relaxed chic, for SS16 the trend is taking a step in a sleek, minimal and luxurious direction - hope you enjoy my tips on how to style it.



Pair Smarter Pieces With Something Soft


A tailored trouser like this navy pair from Me + Em keeps the look elegant whilst the stripe detail is still super sporty, for an extra athletic nod try rolling up the hem for an ankle grazing silhouette. I think suits and matching tones work really well with this trend, paired with some fresh kicks it's a smart take on the track suit. Wear your jacket undone or belted at the back, pushed up sleeves will only add to the relaxed vibe we're going for here too. Teaming these tailored pieces with an oversized soft jersey or fine loose knit like this one is the key balancing the sporty elements with the luxury.





Pay Attention To Details


With loose silhouettes, you want to hone in on the 'lux' elements like accessories. Keep it minimal - we want to avoid looking like a sprinter wearing a gold medallion. Layering fine gold jewellery will add a simple touch of luxury, that paired with a sleek should be all the jewellery you need. Bag-wise, the bigger the better, I mainly use my Louis Vuitton Never Full for the gym and I love how it looked with this outfit. I find a good pair of mirrored sunnies always works a treat with athletic looks too.





Of Course, A Good Pair Of Kicks Is Key


To me, this goes without saying. Now weather you're a Stan Smith girl like me or you like to run around in Roshe Run's, teaming your relaxed-smart look with a pair of pristine kicks is an essential way to finish off the look. Though for evening, this look would totally work with a pair of pointed pumps.


Hope this trend piece gives you some inspiration to incorporate some sports luxe into your wardrobes this season, let me know in the comments if you'd liked this style of post and if there's any other trends you'd like me to do a how-to on.

  1. Love this look! I just bought a vintage adidas track jacket and not sure how to style it for work, to make it less casual looking. Any tips?

    1. Thanks Ruth! That sounds gorgeous, for work I'd pair it with some slim fit black or navy smart trousers and either a plain white shirt or tee and some plain kicks (if you're allowed). xx
