I was up in Portrush today, cheering on our local Golfing heroes. I have returned home soaked to the absolute bone! I would love to say that the fashion style at this event was fantastic but unfortunately everyone was covered up in as many waterproof layers as possible. It got me thinking though about this year’s luxe sportswear trend. Sometimes we’d rather kick back in something comfortable depending on the occasion and of course the weather! Therefore, this trend is definitely something to consider. Whether dressing for work, an evening or a date, this trend can be incorporated into any type of outfit. I always remember Stella McCartney’s very early designs had a luxury “sports” feel to them and now there is a complete wave of designers following suit showing on the catwalks of Prada and Christopher Shannon to Alexander Wang. Even the ever sophisticated Victoria Beckham has introduced some sportswear looks to her Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
So embrace the 2012 Olympics and try the luxe sports trend this summer. To keep this look affordable, dig deep into the wardrobe and dust off that oversized grey hoodie and team with a pair of baggy three quarter length trousers (perferably rolled up at the bottom), a cropped exercise top and high top trainors (a must have at the moment). Remember neon yellow specifically works great with this trend in terms of accessories.
Send me some photos of your own inspired Luxe Sports look!
