How to wear: Sports Luxe

I love the idea of being able to add a subtle sporty twist to my looks this Spring, and what’s great about this trend is that you don’t necessarily need to invest in a whole new wardrobe to nail it. Instead you’ll find that investing in a few sports inspired pieces can be easily mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe, but what are the best items to invest in?

Here are a few I’m hoping to buy this SS14…

Oversized Jersey Tees

 

 

These look amazing in bold, vibrant hues (especially blues, reds, yellows and greens) giving a not so subtle nod towards the likes of American Football. I personally love this look teamed with a pair of high sandals, as it gives it a more feminine edge, but it would also look great paired with a pair of skater shoes or high tops for more of a tomboy edge!

 

 

 

Mesh

 

From a casual tee with slight mesh detailing (try tucking into a feminine pleated skirt for a great contrast), sheer paneling on a skirt or a mesh racer-back bra peeking out from under a dress, this trend is another, more subtle, nod towards traditional sportswear, if not sexier.

 

 

 

Skater Shoes

 

Okay, so let’s be honest, those Celine skater shoes are the reason skater shoes are even back on the fashion agenda, but luckily for my bank account the high street are full of Celine inspired skate shoes.. Phew!! Make sure you nail it by getting them with thick white soles, and then pick any colour (or pattern) you like- skater shoes go with almost everything. I think I’ll be opting for classic black, wearing them with some ripped boyfriend jeans!

 

 

Runner Shorts

With a slightly looser fit these shorts are a great take on ‘sports luxe’, although they are short, and not necessarily for everyday wear they are so versatile- any colour and material looks great, not forgetting you can wear them with heels or flats. For an edgier look go for black leather or a dark metallic satin pair, or for a softer touch, pastels are a perfect alternative! Another great way to wear your runner shorts is to buy a matching cropped tee or vest- co-ords always add a youthful glow to a look and will definitely sweeten up the sporty vibe.
