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?
*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.

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.
