Sports Luxe is one of the hottest styles this season. Sports Luxe involves traditional styles with a glamorous twist and teaming luxurious sportswear with unexpected elements. Think jersey, touches of neon, stripes, bomber jackets, pumped up kicks, track pants with a twist, leather and metallics.
Track pants with a twist? Try denim joggers, drop crotch jersey cuffed slouch pants, silk joggers, printed track pants, leather track pants. Cuffed and tapered with sporty details like an ironic side stripe or drawstring waists. Oh and wear them with cute flats, wedge trainers or a heel for the ideal sports luxe sexy look.
I’m a Sports Luxe fan as I like to be comfy whilst working from home, but still retain a stylish edge.
The trick to pulling off the sports luxe look is to remember your proportions, define your waist, be a layer player and most importantly, have fun!
Sports Luxe | What I Wore
For a relaxed Saturday at home, I teamed an embellished sweatshirt with denim joggers and a pair of suede loafers.
My Topshop sweatshirt features fabulous sequinned power shoulders. I just love this top – though the Welshman thought I was channelling a little Darth Vader style.
I’ve teamed my embellished sweatshirt with Seed Heritage denim pants in a jogger (or track pant) style with elasticated cuffs and a drawstring waist. Whilst elastic waists are not usually BFFs with girls who have tummies, drawstring waists tend to sit flush against the skin and can be adjusted to sit where most flattering. For me that’s right on my waist, just below my tummy button.
I was comfy and felt cute. It wasn’t quite the Imperial Death March but I did manage an Imperial Death Stare for the next “Luke, I am your father” joke!
