Clean lines, modern accents and athletic detail – it’s now acceptable to wear gym clothes 24/7. Here are the all-star looks to sport this season …
WOMENSWEAR: FOR THE BOARDROOM
In case you hadn't clocked it yet, we've developed quite a penchant for all things active – and while the trend’s relaxed vibe is a dream for the weekend, it doesn't have to stop when you're on the clock. Playing the office style game has never been easier – infuse edge into your working wardrobe by mixing in core pieces with a sports luxe feel. Think streamlined track pants, sleek bombers and elegant pumps. Much like your Sunday morning yoga class, balance is the key. Going for bold detail? Stick to luxury textures. Opting for trainers and a sweater? Even it out with tailored trousers in a play-it-safe hue. Move over suiting, this is your new 9-to-5.
MENSWEAR: FOR AFTER-HOURS
Tired of that faithful shirt and jean pairing? Re-energise your menswear evening look with a sporty sensibility. Wait a second though – we're not saying hit the bar in your sweats (sorry). So what are the rules? Stick to accents rather than statements – pivotal evening basics can be totally transformed by low-key twists. Basically, leave your tracksuit in the locker-room and you're good to go. These are the details you need on your radar.
WOMENSWEAR: FOR RUNNING ERRANDS
Too busy to deal? Minimise sartorial stress with a sports-meets-streetwear approach. Effortlessly cool and quietly comfortable, run your errands in a combo of cashmere knitted joggers and soft cotton tees – topped off with a sleek leather jacket for that credible city spin. As for footwear, as much as we love a good heel, sometimes we just haven't got time for the drama. Swap in for artfully designed trainers and move seamlessly in style from one errand to another. Cool running indeed.
MENSWEAR: FOR THE OUTDOORS
March might mean that spring has sprung – but we're not ready to lose the layers anytime soon. Luckily, this season’s sports inspired pieces make for a winning (and warming) combination. Tap into the trend with thick graphic sweaters or dare to be bold knitted cardigans of bright geometric prints. If the pieces push you out of your comfort zone, pare it back with a neutral cover up. Oversized coats are the laid-back hero of the moment – go big or go home people.
