It is difficult to imagine that the combination of sports and luxury can fit so seamlessly together. The impact that the style has had on the fashion industry is nothing short of revolutionary as major fashion brands have taken on and adapted it. In recent years, sports luxe, or sports luxury has seen a meteoric rise, with celebrities showcasing the new look on social channels everywhere. It is a difficult style, or trend to grasp, but once you have the fundamentals you will be able to experiment and cater to you. We’ve come up with a sports luxe outfit for you.

Sweatpants or Joggers

No matter what you call them, they are one of these foundations of a sports luxe outfit. It can be entirely casual, or it can be a pair of joggers that have been modified to have a huge resemblance to trousers. Designers have now began using lightweight and fitted materials to mirror trouser images in order to take them away from traditional cuffed designs. If joggers, or sweatpants aren’t your cup of tea, then you can use casual pairs of slim jeans, as the whole sports luxe trend is based on comfort and luxury. There are a host of different styles you could use for joggers, as high-street brands such as Topman, River Island have created a various number of fitted sweat pant styles. Experiment with them, as you will not entirely comfortable unless you find something that truly suits you.
Footwear

Your footwear with your choice of outfit is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when it comes to this trend. Major labels have begun incorporating formal shoes in order to push the style more towards luxury, whereas other have used canvas, or sport styles to provide the ultimately comfort. No matter what style you choose, your shoes have to have a balance of both. Shoes can often dictate the direction your sports luxe outfit takes. Deciding whether you want to look at a more casual, or luxury style is entirely down to you,you’re your footwear is important. Think of brands, such as Timberland, All Saints are a perfect example of mens boots. Think Nike, Vans, Adidas, Android Homme and Puma for your canvas, or sports based trainers.

The Upper Wear

The jacket you choose to use will define what way your sports luxe outfit goes down. If you want to cater more towards a formal look, you’ll tend to look for oversized t-shirts, blazers, tailored jackets, or for more casual occasions you’ll look for casual baseball jackets, jumpers or hoodies.
People are quick to forget that blazers were once called a ‘sports jacket’ and now the sports luxe trend has arrived, designers such as Lanvin have adapted accordingly. Lanvin have used lightweight materials, with shortened styles in order to create a jacket that seamlessly fits into sports luxe. It is a smart, yet contemporary look, but take sports luxe towards luxury. That is not to say that you can’t look smart with a hoodie, or a baseball jacket, as many others will take the comfort route. Use the hoodie, or jumper from any collection of mens tracksuits and take advantage of the fitted style, as sports luxe is a huge experiment. Casual can still look smart, so take advantage of the different brands and styles that you have. Look at brands such as The Couture Club, Gibson London, Topman and many more to see a variety of casual and smart jackets.
These are only the foundations of a sports luxe outfit, so once you have these fundamentals you can adapt it in any which way you’d like.
