Work It Out!
It is time to take sportswear out of the gym and onto the streets. This trend actively includes every essence of style and functionality. From bright colors to lightweight ergonomic fabrics, what could be more fashionable and comfortable?
Athletic inspired fashion has been making its presence known on the some of the most notable runways. Wide mesh and loose hanging cottons have been seen in collections such as Alexander Wang and Helmut Lang.
Sneakers with a hidden wedge are really starting to take over the market place. They provide height, elongation of legs, effortlessly casual style, and comfort! Another variation of the sport shoe that makes it more fashion forward is the “flatform”. There is an array of bright and colorful canvas tennis shoes with an added flat platform.
If you really want to add more to this look, ditch your purse and opt for a backpack! Baggu offers a huge selection of colorful 100% recycled cotton backpacks that would really set your outfit in action.
The trick NOT to look like you’re on your way back from a yoga class (even though you might be!) is to combine the right amount of sport influence with fashion. For example, athletic fabrics can be used as an accent on a tank top with a fashion silhouette. Or, alternatively choose a sportswear inspired piece like a tennis short that is made with a fashion fabric such as satin or chiffon. By mixing it up just the right amount, you will be looking effortlessly sporty chic by the weekend!
