Get the 'sports luxe' look for less
23 Jun 2016
Beyonce’s doing it. Rihanna’s doing it. Cara Delevingne’s doing it. They’re all looking effortlessly stylish wearing gym-wear as day-wear. However, don’t be fooled into thinking this is a lazy fashion trend. The key to getting this look right is to not forget the 'luxe' element. We’ve put together our top tips so that you can work this trend into your wardrobe with style.
• Trainers or heels – Footwear is key with this trend. If you’re dressing up, you can 'sports luxe' any outfit with the right branded street trainers, white or metallic pumps or high tops. If you’re feeling bold, you can mix up your track pants with a stylish heel and statement jacket. Pop into Skechers, Bench, All Saints, Nike or Asics to get the perfect items for this look.
• It’s all about texture and layers – Think of loungewear, but stepped up a notch. Soft jersey, fine knits and silks in cream, grey marl, nude and navy layered with eye-catching jackets or patterned gym pants. The key is in the contrasting textures. Check out knitwear and wardrobe staples in M&S Outlet, Gap Outlet and Next Outlet.
• Don’t forget the luxe – perhaps the most important element of this look is in the luxury. It isn’t enough to wear your actual gym-wear as day-wear. There has to be a luxury element to the look, which is why it’s so important to get the accessories right, whether it’s the branded trainers, luxury handbag or statement shades. Osprey and All Saints have the perfect accessories for upgrading your look.
