HOW TO//Fashionable Sportwear

I always hated gym class. Track running. Actually any physical activity. But sportswear holds a special place in my heart. It is so daggy it has stopped being unfashionable and has worked it's way right back around the fashion spectrum, to being on-trend again. For me, anyway.

So how do I put together an outfit with elements of sportswear, and not look like I have just been for a run/to pick my son up from soccer? let's see how the pros do it.

I love the vibrant, tacky, bold patterns and cuts of 90s sport gear, as well as the simplicity and understated style of 1950s tennis players. Pulled-up white socks, lacoste shoes, starchy collars. Bonus points if you can mix in a bit of both. Pleats and spandex, black and white. Perfect.

Overalls, rolled at the cuff, with trainers is one of my favourite looks. It is still the peak of summer here in Australia, so I can't wear denim for another few months, but I look forward to rocking that look when the leaves finally start to change colour. I'm trying to find myself a nice Adidas or Nike jacket for winter too. Something that looks like it's intended to be worn by a man.

Shorts - Adidas ( $15 from eBay)

Backpack - Stella McCartney x Adidas

So, here is my take on sport x fashion. I love shoes like this with a thick ankle strap, especially when paired with something quite short (like these cycling shorts). Also, holy mother of god, these shorts are so damn comfortable. No wonder cyclists are happy. I've balanced out very very tight spandex shorts with a huge over sized T-shirt and the shoes act as the feminine part of my outfit. Adidas backpacks are great too, they can hold so much stuff and they are such good quality.

Dress - Glue Store
Shoes - Nike Air Max (buy here)

I never wear body con dresses. I am usually quite conscious of my broad hips, but I decided, fuck it. These are my new Nike Air Max trainers. My boyfriend and my flat mate told me that I am a massive Ladette for owning Nike Air Max. I said, maybe I am. I saw a guy on the street recently, he was waiting for a bus and wearing these Nike Air Max. He looked great.

I figured the dress was tight enough to be very feminine, and balance out the trainers nicely. This is my casual-Friday-in-the-office look. I wore this to work, then out in the city later that night. My feet experienced new levels of comfort.

This is as elegant as white trainers can get. Mix them with Long, elegant, flowing dresses or well fitted high-waisted shorts. It make your sporty trainers look less sporty and more casual. If you have a long dress, that you think is too formal to wear day-to-day try wearing it with trainers. Reeboks; what can't they do?
