Bright primary colors, sleek silhouettes, and bold linear graphics make up this cooler than cool mash-up of varsity style and luxury fabrication. While not exactly new to the fashion scene (we all remember the terms “sport lux” and “elevated athleisure” I’m sure) this trend has got some serious staying power.
Luxury fashion houses like Vetements are taking queues from classic sports brands such as Champion, and true activewear brands like P.E Nation are stepping up their fashion and style game far beyond your basic gym gear. These two once polar opposite genres of fashion are meeting in the middle to create a whole new subclass of style with amazing results. Since this is the perfect storm of style, it’s no wonder why this trend seems to be cropping up each season.
But how do you put together these athletically inclined styles to look more like an urban fashion master and less of a workout wannabe? It’s all about mixing these pieces in with your everyday wardrobe, try a mom jean and a sports bra combo or a perfect silk shirt dress with a pair of sporty leggings. It’s all about taking the unconventional and making it into something spectacular. For our round up of the best sport lux pieces check out the images below.
