Perfecting The Sports Luxe Trend

Share post:

With Olympic fever gripping the nation last summer, it was not surprising to see that our new found athletic obsession had also worked its way into the heads of the fashion elite, with the sports luxe trend featuring on many of the major catwalks last season. In fact, over the past year, the style has been gathering momentum and is a firm favourite.

This sporty trend encompasses your entire wardrobe, from jackets to dresses and trainers to wedges. The most fashion friendly aspect of the look is that it is unbelievably versatile. It can either be rocked head-to-toe or can be used to give a kooky edge to an otherwise subtle summer outfit. Thinking about taking the plunge? Here are some tips for perfecting the sports luxe look:

Ready, Set, Go

Channeling Vera Wang, the BMX bandit look is not for the fashion faint-hearted. Layering bright, baggy jersey tops over even brighter leggings, think neon contrasting and block colours. If you are ready to hit the scene with this look, why not try pairing some Harlem trousers with a big sized mesh racer back vest? Once again, do not be afraid of clashing your colours or your prints, as the bold contrast is a favourite of the sport luxe elite. In fact, if you aren’t quite ready to commit to a complete wardrobe overhaul, why not try mixing some of your current pieces? Try pairing green, blue and white tones to see how the trend feels to you. If you are unsure, there are plenty of other, more subtle ways to wear this look, so just keep reading.

Subtle Sports

Thinking about incorporating the sports luxe look into your work wardrobe? It’s no problem, as slouch trousers are perfect for channeling the athletic trend at the office. Paired with stylish stilettos, a loose fitting shirt and either a box or baseball jacket, this outfit will see you through both the day and night; just add some neon accessories to complete the look. Worn as outerwear, these block-print crop tops look bang on trend when worn with skater skirts, Harlem trousers and jump-suits.

Sports Staples

Whether you feel ready to take the plunge into head-to-toe sports luxe or not, you simply cannot go wrong with skater skirts, mesh vests, crop tops and baseball jackets online this summer. With the warm weather fast approaching, these sporting staple pieces will see you through the next few months, with no problem. The loose fitting, light fabrics are perfect for hot summer days, whilst baseball jackets are ideal for keeping you warm.

Evening Glam

The sports luxe trend can also be worn with a sexy twist, with many of the major fashion labels weaving the Olympic influence into their beautiful evening dresses. Team a brightly coloured, body-contouring bandage dress with some hi-top wedged trainers or chunky heels for the perfect night-time look.
