The sports luxe fusion of fashion and function is absolutely everywhere. Clean lines and sporty silhouettes that bridge the gap of comfort and style are a whole new breed of womenswear.
Our fashion team have pulled together some of the top sports luxe looks, so you can look effortlessly chic but feel deliciously comfortable.
1. THE TIMELESS BOMBER
Masculine meets feminine in the timeless bomber, that can be glammed up or toned down depending on your mood. Try an embellished or embroidered version for a touch more femininity, or wear with something floral and floaty to cut a dash this spring.
2. THE SWEATER
Whether they're worn with turned up jeans and skater flats, a sharp skirt or tailored trousers, a sweater is a super cool addition to the sports luxe look.Clockwise from left Addidas by Stella McCartney, available at StellaMcCartney.com Sport Max, available at Harrods, Kenzo , available at Kenzo.com
3. THE GO FASTER STRIPES
A stripe of contrasting colour at the side seam not only ticks the retro - box, but also elongates the appearance of the leg, by emphasising the longest part and trimming the widest. For wide legged variety try these Alexander McQueen silk mix trousers, or if you are more into the narrow cut, our stretch silk trousers are available here. Casual by day with a casual T, stylish by night with some FM heels and statement jewellery.Clockwise from left Alexander McQueen silk mix trousers, available at net-a-porter, Roxy Estella Midnight stretch silk trousers, available Maimie London, Fendi silk jogging trousers, available at Matchfashion.com
* ONE TO WATCH : IVY PARK *
Beyonce and Topshop teamed up for the much awaited Ivy Park Athletic wear, set to launch on the 14th April at Topshop.
‘... I didn’t feel there was an athletic brand that spoke to me. My goal with Ivy Park is to push the boundaries of athletic wear, and to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than physical appearance.’
Here here B, we look forward to sporting some.
