If formal dressing ain’t your thing, rejoice! Especially when the weather in Singapore is so erratic; it can be sunny and extremely humid for a moment, and rain cats and dogs in a blink of an eye. Today I’ll be introducing to you a recent trend that you should watch out for: Sports Luxe.
It is exactly what you would infer from the two words! Sports + Lux. Sports lux introduces active wear with a luxurious note. This trend started in 2012, and gives much credit to the Olympic Games in London for the rising popularity and high street brands helped propel its popularity further.
Clean lines, cut sweatshirts, track pants, casual clothes and sneakers with a luxurious take as well as familiar casual fabric such as jersey and innovative sports textiles are features to look out for.
Interestingly, sports luxe is a trend that comes from the street, not the designers! They are then being noticed by designers who drew inspiration from the streets, one notable one would be Alexander Wang and then trickle down back to the streets again! Who says only designers start trends?
If you are wondering how does one accessorize this look, just remember that minimal is key. A trusty snapback always work! Let the combination of fabrics, the structural lines or even the colour blocking do all the talking!
