Sports Luxe

The whole nation has gone Olympic mad, so much so, it’s even infiltrated to the world of fashion. One of this season’s biggest looks is the Sports Luxe trend and it’s an important one to master. Seen on numerous SS12 catwalks such as Alexander Wang, Jill Sander and Phillip Lim, it’s proved to be a winning style for this summer.

Tracksuits are still a no-go, instead think panelled trews, loose vest necklines, unstructured shifts and pleated gym slip style dresses. I recommend choosing one item and making it your summer staple or mixing a couple of smaller pieces together to tackle the trend head on. Admittedly, it can be a difficult look to pull off, so just make sure it is fused with your own personal style. I’ve picked my favourite Sports Luxe style looks from Then and Now’s designers; a sure fire bet to secure the hottest trend this SS12.
