First things first: what is this ‘sport luxe’ trend popping up? Well my post a while ago about sneakers as fashion-wear was only the beginning. Sports clothing/gym gear is fast becoming much more than just an item of clothing – the line between fitness and fashion is definitely blurring. Women are taking their athletic wear from the treadmill to the street. From bright neon Nike trainers with dresses, to skin-tight compression pants, to sweater dresses, crop tops and even leather trackies! But far from being tomboy-ish and lazy – it’s about being a little feminine about it, and more luxurious, more sleek.

What do you guys think of this look? Obviously if I were to actually go out I’d tone the sportiness down a little – the headband-necklace thing was just a prop and I’d pop a blazer over the top of the tank. Overall I think it’s a pretty basic look and you can mix ‘n’ match pieces too. For me, it’s just a great excuse to feel totally comfortable – no stilettos, no super-tight jeans, no being restricted in button ups or zips or buckles. Just slip on clothes that make you look super-fit and cool 🙂
I’m pretty happy so far with my efforts to keep my wardrobe sustainable, ethical and environmental – the skirt is AA, a sweatshop free brand which has all it’s garments made in LA, and the sneakers I bought secondhand.
By the way, I took these photos in the cold. Yes I did. Am I dedicated or what? Although I was running to and from the camera getting the self-timer right, so I felt pretty warm afterwards haha. And it’s swotvac. The dreaded week of essays due, exam revision and general procrastination. Boo.
