Trend: Sports Luxe
One of the hottest trends this season – Sports Luxe is an easy way to update your jeans-and-jacket wardrobe with a chic sporting edge. This trend is all about embracing the spirit of athleticism with none of the hard toil!
Dress it down with shorts and racer vests for lounging around in sunny pub gardens, or combine sharp accessories with jersey and lurex fabrics for a dressed-up look.
Try our top five ways to work Sports Luxe.
DRESS IT UP
Match skyscraper heels and chunky accessories with jersey, lurex and mesh for a sophisticated twist on sportswear. And for the final touch you can’t go wrong with a streak of red lippy!
Bombers are perfect for instantly adding sports luxe to any outfit. We want to get our hands on this leather-look one from Topshop – team it with super-skinny jeans and your favourite heels, and complete with these Asos preppy round sunglasses.
The jumpsuit epitomises what dressing-up this trend is all about – pairing softer, sportier fabrics with sleek lines and sharp tailoring. Try this gorgeous one from Missguided, with a simple envelope clutch.
Topshop Leather-look Bomber £58
Asos Sunglasses £12
Missguided Belted Jumpsuit £27.99
DRESS IT DOWN
Soft cotton boyfriend-tees, casual shorts and trainers (how did we forget that trainers are the comfiest footwear ever?!) – dressed-down sports luxe is perfect for the upcoming hot summer days (fingers crossed!).
Forget short denim hotpants – this trend is all about the retro, longer-length drawstring. We love this cute pair from American Apparel – ideal paired with this simple Warehouse boyfriend-tee.
American Apparel Drawstring Shorts £40
Warehouse Boyfriend Tee £12
Racer back vests are an easy way to update your wardrobe with sports luxe – this all-American cheerleader top from New Look is a bargain way to embrace the trend. Add a bit of retro sporting chic with a Casio digital watch (we love the mint green)!
New Look vest top £12.99
Casio Digital Watch £20
No sports luxe list would be complete without trainers. We’re loving Nike Air Max teamed with ankle-length skinnies and a blazer – this gorgeous pink and grey combo is our current fave.
Nike Air Max £71
