From luxurious fabrics with zips,  t-shirt dresses with mesh details to perforated accessories and trendy trainers, designers churned out athletic style pieces that felt as spirited and playful as they did modern and minimalist. – Stylist Leila Pertersen gives us insight on how to wear Sports Luxe.

This trend is all about mastering pared back elegance and creating fuss free silhouettes while still looking chic and grown up.

Sporty clothing makes for an effortlessly elegant look these days, as athletic influences are no longer that obvious, and when they are, something about them screams pure luxury.


For a fresh approach why not pair this season’s must have with a sporty sweatshirt, a pleated skirt and block heels.

This look is uber sophisticated with a pencil skirt and strappy heels.

The colour palette for this trend also ranges from bright bold primary hues, inspired by the 80’s no doubt, as seen at Tommy Hilfiger to more pale and interesting tones as was seen at Marc by Marc Jacobs and Shana.
