One of the trends I'm loving and particularly interested in this season, is the sports luxe trend, a look I'm sporting today. The reason I'm excited about it is because it's comfy and depending on how you wear and mix and match it, stylish as well! This certainly is a combination that I'm sure many of us would appreciate, since often times, the trends that are taken from and inspired by the runways are anything but comfy, let alone practical for everyday wear.
The key, I feel, to pulling off a successful sports luxe look is to work with sporty pieces that are in basic or monotonous color palettes; it'll give off more of that luxe part of the trend. To prevent your outfit from appearing boring or drab, you can add hints of color in your accessories. In my look, I maintained more of a monotonous color scheme, which was just my personal preference in this case. I chose to pair the jersey inspired tee shirt with black skinny jeans because it features a leather strip on each side, which blended well with the horizontal stripes on the shirt. Plus, stripes are a bit synonymous with sports. To intensify the theme, I added these sneaker wedges, which you've seen before. The black jean and sneaker combo created a lean and lengthening effect to the legs because the same color was used for both, a trick I often emphasize to accomplish this effect. If you wanted to add more of a glam (luxe) vibe, you could sport a red or bold lip. I had intentions of wearing a plum lip to correspond with the shirt, but decided that I wanted the sporty vibe to be more dominant, which is why I opted for nude lips.
What do you think of the sports luxe trend? Is it a trend you're will to try? I personally think it's one that's universally flattering, since the pieces tend to have more of a masculine feel, allowing you to choose where you want the attention to be place and it's a trend that's found in numerous pieces, in both tops and bottoms, as well as single pieces, such as shapeless dresses.
GO AHEAD, RECREATE THE LOOK!
