Comfortable yet chic, this season’s new activewear offering is ever so appealing. Embracing a practical and functional approach to everyday dressing, athletic inspired looks (*not leggings and trainers*) are taking over our wardrobes!
The 2020 global pandemic has created a new ‘normal’ whereby our fashion focus has shifted to a more relaxed silhouette for day-to-day dressing. Corporate workwear has taken a back seat in favour of luxe layers for those daily Zoom calls. It’s time to invest in sporty silhouettes for work or play, focusing on separate, functional pieces in luxurious, comfortable fabrics that will see you through from day to evening.
Although the sports luxe trend seems effortless, it actually requires much more skill and commitment than you may have thought in the way that the ‘no makeup look’ actually requires a multitude of products! It takes a commitment to style to achieve the look.
Sports luxe is about achieving a stylish and streamlined silhouette. So, if one piece is oversized like a relaxed trouser, then strip it back with a slightly fitted jumper. The ‘luxe’ aspect to ‘sports luxe’ refers to adding a touch of glamour to your relaxed silhouette. For example, simply elevate the everyday jogger with tailored shapes and clean lines to avoid looking scruffy and experiment with more luxurious fabrics to achieve that polished yet relaxed ‘put together’ look.
Style our most wanted Sports Luxe Grey Trousers with a neutral cashmere jumper such as our Luisa Cerano Cream Cashmere Sweater for daytime luxe. For relaxed evening glamour, simply pair the same trousers with our silk Luisa Cerano Forest Frill Blouse.
You do not need to dress head to toe in ‘sporty’ elements as this will only take away from the effortless, low maintenance style you are aiming for. Select one hero piece such as our jogger with a side stripe and pair with other minimal or neutral styles for maximum impact.
Think about adding a tailored coat such as our Navy Scuba Coat to make a real style statement and give your sport-inspired outfit the appearance of refined elegance and luxury. Style your final look with embellished sneakers to truly amp up your sports-luxe game!
