YES!! We are back to bring you the 2nd Edition of our Winter Fashion Trend Look Book. Iptishaam Davids Blogger behind Stitched the Blog and I collaborated to style our W14 look for Sports Luxe Trend. If you missed out on Aw14 Part 1 the Hyper Folkoric Trend (click here). The sporty look, which is for both men and women, is set to be one of the key trends this year. Back in 2008, the sport luxe trend used to be bright neon colours but this has now been toned down.
“The style is more softer and simplistic”
So how do you wear the Sports Luxe Trend??? The athletic style dates back to the 1920s when designers such as Jean Patou and Coco Chanel helped popularise the look. Lots of stripes, relaxed tailoring and sportif patterns. You can dress the trend up by adding accessories and a pair of heels. It’s all about different items together, like teaming a baseball jersey with a pencil skirt. It can be worn from day to night. Just add a leather jacket and change a big bag to a small clutch bag. This trend will run into summer and can be followed by wearing crop tops and camisoles.
On any other day I would most probably pair my whole outfit with lace up boots. My make-up and accessories were very minimal. This was my first attempt to wear a burgundy lipstick and it actually looked really good but it is vital to apply a lip liner for a more fuller lip. I used white eyeliner instead of black as I wanted a more cleaner and less dramatic look. Iptishaams outfit was very relaxed with a slouchy beanie, melange jogger, washed denim shirt and she killed the look with a those black ankle boots. The perspex geometric necklace added the bit of glam to finish the SPORT LUXE TREND.
