Spring/Summer ’15 trend: Sport Luxe
Ahh the Trusty Sport Luxe trend. Guaranteed to make you look and feel effortlessly stylish.I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the sport Luxe trend is one of my faves. I mean, lets be honest who doesnt want to wear their sweats out in public some days? Well, now you can because its a ‘thing’ thanks to every runway show ever executed since hmm lets say about 2011.
Sport Luxe has been popular for a few years now and it is one of those trends that keeps coming back for more every single season. Spring/Summer 2015 will be no exception, with the trend set to make an impact yet again.
In the past, the trend has been strong on sweat pants and singlets, often paired with a pair of heels. While the direction is pretty similar going forward there have been a few new injections. This year New York Fashion week introduced a few new looks keeping with the sport luxe theme. Alexander Wang for example took the sport Luxe trend literally and designed an entire line of bags inspired by the humble sneaker. Other looks included mesh, crop tops, sneakers, bombers, sweaters, jersey dresses, the list really does goes on.
The sport Luxe trend or ‘fresh gym look’ as I recently heard it referenced really is open to interpretation because there are so many key looks which can pass as sporty or athletic. I personally really enjoy teaming my sweats with a pair of heels because I think it just gives it a more feminine edge and I absolutely couldnt go past this colour blocked mesh singlet by Doris Q- Whats more Sport Luxe than that!
Now, if I wanted Sport Luxe overload I would have teamed this outfit with a slick back messy braid but thats a little bit try hard and I couldnt help but notice how naturally sunkissed my hair was already. While I do take credit for the healthy ends thanks to my decision to bin all my hot hair tongs, it was the hair professionals at Wella that set these wheels in motion.
