Sportswear is a key fashion trend that has being evolving over the past few years. With the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio and the huge popularity in healthy outdoor lifestyles, this trend is here to stay.
By sports luxe I don't mean wearing your 'active wear' all day. What I mean is the sports twist on clothing that we are seeing from major brands that creates an effortless comfort and style and does the impossible - makes track pants cool! Styles are sleek and minimalistic which helps blur the boundaries between active wear and fashion wear.
Key colours are monochrome such as grey, black and white drop crotch style pants with plain tees, white sneakers, and black round sunglasses, complemented with a slouchy duffel bag.
Try mixing your jersey and fleece knits with leather to make yourself stand out from the crowd. Leather jackets, singlets or skirts teamed back with black tees or singlets and high top boots are another great way of adding street into sports luxe. King of this style is Australian uber cool fashion brand Bassike that completely erases any gap that may exist between clothing that you can wear as fashion and exercise gear.
Track pants are worn as day wear with rib jerseys and hoodies; striped slouchy tees are layered with v-necks and the extra fleece is tied effortlessly around your waist like a true gym junkie. Team it back with a C & M cap, latest adidas sneakers and in the past your friends might have thought you were off to the gym - now they presume it's a drink at the lab!
