If you are looking a for simple way to update your wardrobe for SS16 then checking out this season's 'Sports Luxe' trend could be the answer. Even for those of us who are allergic to the activity itself, there is a definite appeal to the easy wearability and comfort of sportswear. It is no wonder most of the front row at the latest fashion weeks were sporting trainers instead of 5 inch heels - for once comfort and fashion aligning.
So what is Sports Luxe all about? For us it is the merging of luxurious materials and a sporty aesthetic. Style it with contrasting pieces for an effortless on trend look.
A great starting point is Matt&Nat's perfect white sneakers - minimalist and supremely comfortable, these vegan beauties will ground your outfit. They will look just as good with a slouchy pair of joggers as they will dressed up with something more luxe - we love them with Beaumont Organic's irridescent Saida skirt and Bibico's luxurious cashmere mix crew jumper for a feminine take on the trend.
British brand Riyka have nailed the Sports Luxe look to perfection with their use of sporty silhouettes and colour blocking in primary colours. The Brooke and Crystal dresses could have been inspired by American football tops, in the very best of ways.
Fabric is key with soft organic cotton jerseys and and weaves playing into the look perfectly. Kowtow's simple organic cotton pieces are great staples for this trend as is Beaumont Organic's gorgeous woven Disney jumper in a bright red with deep V. Layer pieces together for that casual vibe that is the great appeal of Sports Luxe.
Lastly for accessories - and here it is all about colour. Set off your outfit with Carla Colour's pink hued round frames for a bit of fun. Add a colourful bag from TINCT or Danielle Foster in luxurious leather and you are good to go. Sportswear never looked so chic.
