To the gym in sport luxe

Because, dressed for the gym but not to the gym. 

Sport luxe has been on the lips of many journalists, bloggers and fashionistas in the last few seasons and it is the aesthetic of designers such as Kris Van Assche and Neil Barrett. The amalgam is apparent with increasing number of collaborations between sports brands
and high fashion designers (Puma x Alexander McQueen, Adidas x Raf Simons, Converse x Maison Martin Margiela) and is a trend that will continue to thrive.

Although designers and sport brands have successfully merged athleticism and luxury, it is vital to note that the primary focus is still on aesthetic than actual functionality. The rules that apply to sartorial pairing in terms of silhouettes, colour schemes, fabrication apply in the same manner so it is important to give thoughts when putting together a fashionable athletic look. The next time you decide to give sport luxe a chance, try

1) overlaying leggings with tailored shorts (this changes the ballet dancer silhouette and reduces the stares for the wrong reasons)
2) doing a half tuck on your oversized t-shirt or shirt (this creates an effortless but non-prissy illusion)
3) wearing statement sporty lace-ups (ultimate sporty statement).
