It’s a big year for sport, with the recent Euro 2012 and now, the Olympics. So, fashion is going sporty. Don’t panic, that doesn’t mean wearing your running gear to restaurants but there is a way to be comfortable and stylish with this trend. Are you ready to rock the Sports Luxe look?
The idea is to avoid overkill – one or two items at a time will do the look justice. It’s more than possible to do sporty, without looking too casual. In fact, with some clever accessorising, colour and a bit of metallic, you’ll be well away with a gorgeous new style.
So, here goes…
Our top picks for sports luxe
Your staple items
The ultimate for making you look super glam. Who said you can’t run in heels?
Heeled sneakers, as with regular sneakers can be found to match every outfit.
A splash of neon
How about a neon vest, or neon accessories?
Stick with us on this one. Paired with the right footwear, these can look rather chic.
Mango get it right, with their black and white track pants. Team them with something loose on top and you’ll be well away.
Bowler bags are great for girls who carry their lives in their handbags. The double handles and roomy shapes make them easy to carry around, without hurting your shoulder.
For a splash of colour, try this brightly coloured number from American Apparel. Or go for a neutral ladylike bag.
Feeling daring? Get a bomber jacket with a touch of metallic. This metallic one from Topshop definitely puts the ‘luxe’ in sports luxe.
Or a sheer black one, for a more pared down effect, especially if you decide on some bright accessories. They also look très chic, for a day to night look.
What about jewellery? There’ll be a lot going on in this look already, so a simple necklace or brightly coloured bangles will complete your outfit perfectly.
Keep make up nice and simple. Red lips will be suitably glam, if you’re trying the look out during the evening.
You can afford to be a little bit daring with hair but a high ponytail is great for a sport look. Think: Sporty Spice, circa 1997. Also, why not throw on a visor, if you’re feeling super brave?
With so many variations on the look, how will you add sports luxe to your wardrobe?
