Wouldn’t you just love to be able to wear your sweat pants, work-out top and sneakers all day everyday? To the office, to a meeting, out for lunch? You simply can’t beat that relaxed, comfortable feeling that sports clothing has and the freedom of movement it gives you. Well, as unfortunately sportswear does not meet most company’s dress code, thankfully, someone has come up with “sporty chic.”
This new trend is all about combining sportswear with elegant, fashionable clothing. But be careful, it needs to be executed with style and caution to have the desired effect and there are a few hard and fast rules. Only introduce one sporty item at a time into your outfit, so that the contrast can be appreciated. For example, if you are wearing an elegant skirt and blouse combine and contrast with a pair of sneakers. Or try dressing a little more sporty, with a loose fitting sweat pants, a cotton top, and a bomber jacket combined and contrasted with pair of really high heels.
Your “luxe athletic” wardrobe must include sweatshirts, with or without hoods, T-shirts with sports motifs, running shoes and baseball caps to accompany your elegant, designer name and high fashion outfits. Accessories are really important also, sporty necklaces, bracelets, sunglasses and bags are all essential to complete the look. This time the public has started the trend and the designers are following.
Designers are now including all the advantages of sportswear into their latest creations. They are transforming sporty garments into high fashion with clever fabric combinations, adornments and brilliant innovations to combine comfort with style. Short skirts and dresses are no longer confined to the tennis court they are now available in strong muted shades with contrasting bindings and they can be worn on many occasions. You can find comfortable cotton blouses with crochet embellishments and asymmetric hems. Figure hugging tops in bold stripes, colorful patterns and striking designs.
Sneakers now come with wedge heels, in suede and in subtle color combinations so your feet can also enjoy unparalleled comfort while remaining right up to the minute in style. The ever popular baseball cap has been transformed from a sun protector and advertising billboard into a sleek fashion statement with exotic fabrics and exciting color combinations. There are many innovative new garments on the market, from slouchy silk track shorts to perforated leather totes.
And the really good news is that “sporty chic” or “luxe athletic” looks like being more than a passing trend, it could be here to stay. So enjoy yourself making some interesting and innovative combinations and exploring the new range of designer options that offer unrivalled style with unparalleled comfort. Hooray!!
