Sports Luxe: Monochrome

Sports Luxe – How to wear the latest fashion trend!

What is Sports Luxe ?
A term coined by the fashion addicts to define a look that is sporty yet stylish. You need not be a sports enthusiast to strut this look.
Don’t we always think our favourite sportsmen are stylish? Do you know why? In my opinion its because they are in outfits that have a comfortable silhouette and their whole look is simple to relat to and put-together. And ofcourse.. ‘coz they have a toned body!
This doesn’t mean that you should stop liking our body and start following unhealthy Diet Fads. All it meant was to pick the right pieces for your body type. Shopping for sportswear is very easy now compared to how it was a couple of years ago ‘coz a lot of sports brands like Puma, Nike, Adidas etc. focus on the stylish sportswear segment and have a new collection every season.
Points to Remember :
 – You need not be colour co-ordinated.
 – Majority of the Pieces from this look should have a sporty vibe to it.
 – Keep it simple.
Now for the best part – How to Style your Body type?
Pear Shape:
*Yep!! I don’t have a perfect body shape either!*
So I chose a Black Adidas Jersey dress that has a V Neck and a halter shoulder pattern. This brings all the attention on the upper body and the Colour hides the flaws in the lower body. Stick to darker coloured Trousers or Skirts pair it with lighter coloured tops.

Jersey Dress with a n elastic band around the waist: Adidas – Climacool collection
Kitschy PU Print Bag : Singapore Flea Market
Sandals in Black with Punk details and a white Plastic Kitten Heel to give the look a Sporty yet girly vibe: From Singapore Flea Market
Watch: Fastrack
Atheletic/Slim/Rectangle Body:
Make sure you pick a piece or separates that add volume to your figure. Pick up bright or light colours. Cut outs and sheer would look great on you.

Top Heavy Body Shape:
Tops should always in darker shades and with Raglan or Bat sleeves. Trousers and skirts can be fitted and make sure there’s a belt to cinch your waist. Choose darker colours for the upper half of the body.

Hourglass body type is the perfect body type so you need not worry about camouflaging any flaws. Just pick something that is fitted.

  10. That outfit looks really comfortable.

  11. I’ve just been back from Milan Fashion Week and I can say that many famous brand such as Gucci and a less popular one named Sergei Grinko have proposed this trend for next SS2014 collection. I’m honestly not so sure I like it…I’m a sporty person, loving going to the gym and dressing in a comfy and casual way during the week, but I guess this hybrid style is a bit weird. Anyway let’s see…maybe I’m changing my mind soon.

  12. I like the set you put together for the hour glass figure. I would definitely wear that dress even though I don’t have an hourglass – shaped body 🙂 Hahaha
