There’s no escaping the sporty-luxe trend this summer. The catwalk was overrun with luxury sportswear and it’s trickled into the streets, too. Want to rock the trend? You don’t have to be athletic to appreciate the lo-fi look. We’ve rounded up a few key pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Though ‘sporty-luxe’ tends to bring to mind images of crop tops, excessive fluoro and dressed-up tracksuits, there is a way to pull it off fashionably and without looking like you’re about to hit the gym.
The look is casual yet chic, combining relaxed silhouettes with sporty details. Think luxe sweatshirts, crisp whites and racer-back tees. Wear with leather shorts and neoprene separates, while throwing sporty elements such as exposed zippers, utility buckles and asymmetrical panels into the mix.
Choose simple fabrics such as cotton and silk jersey to keep the look completely smart, modern and comfortable. Just don’t go overboard with the athletic vibe! We recommend choosing one standout sporty piece and building the rest of your outfit around it.
Add the tiniest flash of highlighter yellow with on-trend nails painted with Novo Nailart Lacquer in Neon Lights.
And top off the look with downtown chic footwear. A pair of slip-on Hayley loafers in black will take your sporty tomboy style to new heights. Alternatively, wear your sporty-luxe ensemble with a simple pair of patent Santana sandals. We just love the diamente detailing on these Comet sneakers.
