As much as I love fashion and love to dress up, comfort is very important to me. I'm not one of those people that 'suffer for fashion', sorry not me, I like to be comfortable in my clothes. When sports inspired looks started trending, I knew this was going to be my thing! What's not to love about a trend that can be casual, relaxed and super chic all at once? Though this trend is supposed to be casual and comfortable, it has the flexibility of being interpreted in a multitude of ways, which could go from just casual to effforlessly chic.
For 2014, sports inspired looks are still hinged on the fundamentals of having sleek simple clean lines, and mainly featuring minimalistic colours, however, there's a move towards more luxurious and elegant stylying.
Here are 3 ways to make this trend rock, without looking like a slob in track pants.
a. Choose pieces with luxe/decent quality fabrics and good tailoring to balance out the relaxed silhouette that sporty clothing are traditional known for, this would help make your look more elegant.
b. Embrace elegant heels, especially sandals instead of trainers, becauses track pants/ sporty trousers can tend to be overly relaxed - as such might be dwarfing, unless of course you are vertically blessed, in which case you can try on some modern fancy sneakers for an updated take on the trend.
c. Accessories always add more panache to any outfit, and this also goes for sporty looks, whether you choose a baseball hat, statement jewelry or simple minimalist pieces, whatever you do just accessorize.
