The 'Sports Luxe' trend gets thrown around a lot, more so perhaps than a Frisbee. With the reinvention of the beloved bomber jacket happening almost every month let alone season, and thanks predominately to the 90s revival it, like a Frisbee, has returned yet again.
Previously, I've really resisted the trend but as part of my new thing (I'm taking Easter's offering of new beginnings to a whole new level and properly re-embracing everything social - with new videos on my YouTube channel this week too) I'm trying to care more about trends. I work in the fashion industry and have decided (over the weekend) that if I try them out for myself then I can fairly embrace them or hate them. That's my bizarre logic anyway.
So, back to sports luxe... as a relaxed and almost lounging style it's not only super comfy but makes for a super easy way to be dressed up but down, to work. Look for soft jersey separates and stick to either dark (grey, black, white) or light (nudes, navy and peachy) hues.
After briefly owning a pair of Adidas striped tracksuit bottoms when I was like 8, I never ever thought I'd wear a pair again (even in the safe confides of a gym...) but after the side stripe trouser was seen on the catwalk at Acne and Chloe, the high street followed and, very surprisingly, so have I.
I ordered up these 'luxe contrast side stripe jogger' trousers from Asos last week and haven't really taken them off since, they feel like they're made from neoprene (even though they're not) and, despite being a little longer than I'd like them to be, they work really effortlessly in my wardrobe. It's super easy to pair them with neutral pieces, such as grey marl jumpers and trainers now and they'll look cute with sliders and a plain tee when it
