Sweatshirt-Huemn, Trackpant-Puma, Sneakers-Forever21, Bag-Zara, Watch-Burberry, Eyewear-Alter Ego.
Fashion’s favorite trend of the year is all about sporty-meets-girly. The intense Love affair with the trend is spotted all over-from runway to reality. It’s not hard to see why? Sports-Luxe is elegant, comfy, flexible and flattering (if worn the right way).
Huemn’s SS ’14 collection at the Lakme Fashion Week was all about sports-luxe. From sweatshirts to varsity sari, it became an easy favorite of stylists and fashionistas around. I was no different. Here you can see me wearing a sequined+sheer+sloganned Sweatshirt with track-pants and sneakers. A perfect style for any concert or a hip-hop club. The dual side clutch adds a pop of color, and speaks for itself. Tweak a little by pairing it up with strappy sandals; it’ll not only give you a slim-down effect but make for an elegant look that will take you to places.
Though there are very many ways to don sports-luxe, there are perils too-mostly appearing through poor styling or overtly safe choices. The trend offers sweatshirts, bomber jackets, trackpants, boxing inspired culottes, suspenders, caps covered in slogans, sequins, prints and textures-endless varieties to choose from.
Stylist’s tip: Wear the trend with oodles of attitude and jazz. Don’t fear to experiment and make this trend your own. Keep accessories minimal and to statement pieces. Well, good enough to turn those heads.
P.S: Look out for the next big collaboration (if you follow me on instagram you already know)- Design maestro Kallol Dutta for PUMA. Can’t wait to try on his signature bold style for a glam sporty affair!
Tell me how do you like my take on the Sporty love affair?
