How To Wear The Sportswear Trend
Sometimes us super women also come down with a case of the Lazy Sundays, but we still have to keep up with the fast pace of our everyday lives. So here’s where the sportswear-as-a-second-wardrobe trend is going to help your Lazy Sundays turn into Stylish Errands Sundays
Sportswear has recently become the craze of the fashion industry and the most shopped class of style since designers have expanded the trend. Brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, and Fila hyped up the trend of sneakers and sport shoes so much so that when the newest trainer drops, POOF. It’s sold out in a matter of hours.
Designers have recently started to focus on sportswear details and fabrics like cotton, jersey, mesh, straps, elastics, prints and bombers rather than classic elegant details to compliment their designs and collections. So let’s take a moment to thank the gods above — and the designers who are making it easier for us to feel comfortable — for helping us survive a bad case of the Lazy Sundays in style.
The Grown-Up Sportswear Trend
The sportswear trend hasn’t just crossed over to our casual wardrobes, but also into our work and evening wardrobes. The grown-up sports trend is easier than you think to recreate. Simply add a branded or graphic body, tee or camisole and team this up with a smarter trouser. Finish off the look with a tailored piece like a blazer to ensure that you look sharp. Keep away from too many metallics or prints; a monochromatic palette works really well when re-creating the grown-up sportswear trend.
Think ‘heavy’ rather than ‘delicate’ and ‘androgynous’ rather than ‘girly’ for this look. Sportswear-inspired clothes have come a long way in the last few years and you can look just as put together in a sports top as you would a blouse. As we always say…’it’s all about the styling’.
The Casual Sportswear Trend
This may seem like a no-brainer. However, our stylists will always tell you that even the most casual outfits require styling. To achieve that effortless ‘just got out of bed look’ takes time, effort and good styling.
Slide into your grey baggy trainer pants, choose a cropped hoodie or muscle tee, and fasten that trendy belt bag around your hip! Finally, to create that girl-meets-boy vibe, pair your lace ankle socks to your most comfortable sneakers…and you’re ready to go!
There are so many ‘IT’ sneakers that it can be difficult to keep up. We recommend going for the perfect balance between comfort and style. Choosing a neutral sneaker will ensure that your shoes aren’t always the focal point of your outfits. But if you want your sneaks to stand out, go for a bright color or cool print.
