Love luxury fashion but not feeling like trying too hard? Sport luxury is the easiest (and sexiest) solution. Unlike some of today’s quirky fashion blogger trends, sport luxury is effortless and totally understandable no matter what part of the world you may be living in. Here are a few key tips on dressing up your sportswear pieces… or dressing down your luxury fashion… depending on how you choose to look at it.
Unlike athleisure, sport luxury doesn’t mean going ultra casual, and you probably won’t look like you just got out of the gym. Athleisure is defined by activewear pieces that you can wear for other occasions in your lifestyle. Leggings to the market, sneakers with dresses and a sport jacket just for the heck of it are all pretty good examples of athleisure style. Sport luxury is a slightly more elevated fashion trend, blending sporty elements into high-fashion style.
Not sure which pieces to mix? Make your luxury pieces the most basic ones. David Lerner is a known favorite for leather legging style, and one of my favorite partner brands that you’ve probably seen speckled throughout my blog. For your luxury selection, go for a sporty leather jogger from a brand like David Lerner that’s going to have the details mastered for a really refined, luxury look. This snap-side tank is from their knit top collection, and makes for a fun component to the look.
Don’t over-think sport. Snaps are a subtle finishing detail that’s just sporty enough to pull the look together, without being a Nike swoosh t-shirt. Their lounge collection has really grown, and I found myself living in their sweatsuits during my “off time” last week from my NYC hotel room.
Since the leather joggers double for both luxury fashion and sport, this look could be complete sport luxe as-is, but accessories are always fun, so I’ve layered them on. Gingham is a hot fashion trend for 2018, so I’ve dressed up the look with Senso gingham sandals with a bit of a feminine ruffle. They “girl” the look up a bit, but you could also opt for a pair of luxury sneakers to make the look a bit more casual.
The more accessories, the more you’ll screw towards luxury fashion over sport. Pick your balance, and accessorize accordingly. Since my day consisted mostly of office work, running errands, and (of course) shooting some picks for this shoot, I made the look a bit more “fashion” so you guys could see the difference more distinctively.
During my normal translation of sport luxury, I may tend to pick more sporty pieces. Swapping the hat for a low, middle-part ponytail, a more minimalist bag, and those luxury sneakers over heels would have made this look ultra sporty and casual, while still holding distinct luxury notes with the David Lerner leather joggers.
