A comfortable and relaxed look is the Sports Luxe Trend in a nutshell – A lot of fashion designers have really taken to it this season and featured them in their catwalk shows; namely Stella McCartney, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll and much more.
When channelling the sports luxe look, go for stripes T-shirt dresses, sweat tops, draped jackets, exposed zips and jumpsuits à la Diane Von Furtsenburg. It’s one of those trends that you quickly fall in love with not just because it’s easy to rock but also because the trend requires very little effort to achieve it. Minimal jewelery or none at all (depends on your personal style) and heels are your rituals for the Sports Luxe Trend!
Score fashion points when wearing this look with exposed zips, that’s signature style tip. Add leather for an edgy look. A trend that easily transcends from day to night, you stand the chance of always being on the fashion mark. If you’re a fan of comfort and style in one outfit (aren’t we all) head to French Connection, River Island and Miss Selfridge for similar runway re-creations in the style of draped jackets and jumpsuits.
In my quest of learning more about the Sport Luxe Trend, I stumbled on this fabulous You Tube video by High Street store French Connection featuring Stylist Cat Dal. She picks out key pieces from the store and pairs fun pieces together whilst shedding some light on this season’s ‘it’ look. Must-Watch!
