Taking inspiration from the street, designers emphasized the sport luxe style as a fantastic way to elevate sportswear to clothing that can be worn from day to night. Materials such as neoprene, and athletic details including drawstring waists and hoodies, are reinterpreted for this look.
Sport luxe provides a great way to begin layering as the temperatures drop and we add pieces to keep us warm during long walks through the leaves. Both carefree and stylish, sport luxe provides a great alternative option to the ever classic jeans and t shirt combination.
Designer Isabel Marant was on the forefront of the trend as she twisted classic athletic wear with her now iconic wedge sneakers. While the sport luxe look can include sportswear pieces that you are used to seeing in the athletic club they always include shape-flattering tailoring and are perfectly put together from head to toe.
After a number of seasons of loving the classically shaped blazer, an airy version provides a great alternative. Sport luxe has also reinterpreted by designers in evening wear with long dresses given a relaxed feel while maintaining an easy elegance.
Designers also made sure to integrate sport luxe elements in their accessories and eyewear collections by mixing durability with stylish details. Athletic brands such as Nike and Oakley have styles that have incorporated classic materials such as tortoiseshell and have also mixed metal frames with colourful rubber temples.
Whether going for a totally new look, or just wanting to mix up your current style, glasses inspired by sport luxe are a perfect addition to the trend.
