There’s no doubt that stylish streetwear has been continuously conquering the fashion world over the past few years. Sportswear is so wonderfully easy to wear in pretty much any scenario and, these days makes for a highly contemporary cutting-edge look. With serious investment pieces forming the backbone to an infinite world of sporty style, consider sport-couture your hot ticket to haute this season.
When it comes to styling, sport-luxe takes an unexpected ladylike turn for Spring/Summer '18. A demure Gucci tweed jacket for instance, plays the field like a pro with high-fashion cult label Off-White’s sleek shoulder bag slung over the shoulder.
“Sportswear is so wonderfully easy to wear in pretty much any scenario and, these days makes for a highly contemporary cutting-edge look.”
If ankle boots reigned supreme in your previous sport style arsenal, switch them out for Prada’s off-kilter kitten heels, and win big by teaming with anything from trusty track pants to a tailored dress with clever athleisure details - such a Monse’s titillating tweed number – favouring hints of the game rather than a head-to-toe look.
Thanks to seasons of experimental styling, track pants now hit the same luxe-meets-loungey vibe as tuxedo or tailored trousers, so don’t be afraid to double up on your sport-luxe with a slouchy sweater by Vetements or pumped up puffer jacket by Moncler. But, sneaker lovers beware – the key to this look and keeping it polished is all in the heels. This season's sneaker sensations by the likes of Gucci however, are certainly worth a look if you're erring on the more casual side.
