Fashion Trend For Spring Summer 2014: SPORTY CHIC


One of the biggest looks for spring 2014 is sporty chic or luxe sport trend.  Sports Luxe is one such trend that has gained momentum in the past few seasons, with top designers showing strong sports inspired SS14 collections.  It is another fashion favourite that does the rounds. It’s not hard to see why. Sports-inspired clothing can be flexible, flattering and, unusually for fashion, comfy.

Sports Luxe is about the comfort and functionality of sportswear using plush fabrics like silks, jacquards, brocades, organzas and velvets. Often embellished with intricate embroideries – like the tigers seen at Pucci, in shimmering lurex materials as seen at Gucci, sequinned with bold numbers, laser cut panels, experimental embroideries, fashion forward pastels, it’s evident that sportswear has indeed received the royal fashion treatment. Think sporty silhouettes meeting luxurious fabrics – a match made in fashion heaven!

here are my tips on wearing the trend:

The sporty-chic trend is all about a combination of sporty pieces like a baseball hat, a varsity jacket or even sneakers with other chic pieces like an LBD, a pair of leather trousers or cropped top. It’s a beautiful marriage of the sport and style world.

Make sure your Chic is more than your Sport - When pulling off the sporty-chic trend, it is important to wear more chic pieces than sporty pieces. If you have an overdose of sporty pieces, your look would be off balance and then you might as well head to the gym since you’re dressed for it.

Shirts with numbers or crests are very sporty - Not in the mood for a varsity jacket, that’s fine. A simple top, sweater or blazer with numbers or crests can go a long way in making you sporty-chic look work for you.

You can never go wrong with a cap - The one sure thing we know about sporty-chic looks is that you cannot go wrong with a cap. The cap in sports is equal to the black pants, it goes with almost anything. You can decide to mix it up with a different colour or go casual in a regular black, white or grey cap.

Wear form fitting track pants - When it comes to rocking your sporty-chic trends with track pants, it is better to go with a slim fit. The slim fit gives you a more flattering look and makes them look more chic than sporty.
