Trend:Sports Luxe

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past few months, then you will know that Sports Luxe is right on trend at the moment and there isn't many fashion-forward individuals not taking advantage of this. If the abundance of bomber jackets and tailored joggers being sold and worn hasn't made it clear to you that Sports Luxe is what it's all about at the moment, take a look at the collection every fashion blogger is swooning over that has been released only this morning, Alexander Wang x H&M; this collection is the epitome of Sports Luxe because not only are pieces of clothing designed for sport being sold but also Wang sports bras, yoga mats and even boxing gloves, I have actually made a couple of purchases from this collection after refreshing the website page for almost an hour and hopefully there will be a post up on them when they arrive.

My Instagram feed is full of celebrities from Rihanna to Anna Dello Russo rocking sport luxe on a daily basis at the moment and I am not at all complaining because, although at first I wasn't so keen, I have really grown to love this trend and there's so many ways to wear it. I'm pretty sure sports luxe was made for the most talked about supermodel of the moment, Cara Delevingne. Cara loves to keep her outfits casual and that's what it's is all about so evidently, she has been one to watch with this trend. The model can pull off a beanie hat like no one else, a quality I am very jealous of, and I'm pretty sure that Miss Delevingne could throw any old outfit on and a beanie and still look fabulous (and sometimes I seem to think this is what she does). Her campaign for DKNY, I personally think helped to bring out the style icon inside of her as ever since, her outfits have been a little bit more pulled together whilst still looking effortless. Below I have listed some of my favourite sports luxe outfits of Caras.

One person who can adjust her style with ease is Rihanna. Rihanna can go from dressed elegantly in Alaia for the Grammys one night to out the next day in trainers and an Adidas top still looking comfortably stylish. Because of this, Rihanna has took to this trend very well and has come up with some amazing outfits, many inspired by her collaboration with River Island last year. I'm not going to go in to immense amounts of detail on how Rihanna wore this trend as I'm sure you've all seen for yourself and I don't want to bore any of you with the same details many other magazines/blogs have beat me to. But here are my favourite looks of Rihanna rocking Sports Luxe.

I have been loving putting looks together following this trend and when my pieces from the Alexander Wang x H&M collection arrive, I'm sure I'll be able to come up with many more and hopefully I'll post some here so stay tuned! Let me know how you wear the Sports Luxe trend down in the comments and leave me any links to your posts covering similar topics.
