Athleisure and sportsluxe are going to be huge in 2017. Expect to see people swapping out their jeans and jumpers for leggings and track jackets as the weather starts to heat up. Now that people are starting to favour comfort over fashion, the birth of a more luxury sportswear alternative has been imminent. Ladies, now you can achieve the “just stepped off the runway and heading to the gym” look with ease.

Where it All Began:

Adidas are heralding the way with the sportsluxe style, they are taking advantage of celebrity collaborations. Stella McCartney has been one of the key influencers on women’s luxury sportswear fashion, and has created with Adidas to create a critically acclaimed sportswear collection. The collection features gear for the gym, running, swimming, and yoga.

One of their most famous collaborations has been with the musician Kanye West, to create luxury footwear range. The Yeezy trainer collection has been a huge success worldwide and with all of these collaborations and the growing interest in luxury sportswear, there is no knowing how far sportsluxe is going to go for women over the coming months.

The Runway’s Style Predictions:

The “easy elegance” look was everywhere at fashion week, with models sporting tennis skirts, leggings and sporty track jackets, which brings a little bit of fun to every day fashion. One of the reasons why luxury sportswear is becoming increasingly popular in 2017 is because people are tired of wearing restrictive clothing that everybody else is wearing. More brands and designs that lean towards comfort and style, means more variety out on the streets. 

The sportsluxe style has been around for some time, teetering on the edge of mainstream fashion. Musicians and high fashion designers alike have been taking a slice of the pie, and collaborating with big name sports brands to create a more luxury alternative.

Luxury Footwear:

Trainers have been in the style spotlight for quite some time now, and they show no sign of going away. Celebrities and models have been swapping their uncomfortable heels for trainers at loads of different events, and it’s time for us to follow their lead. Imagine how much better a night out would be if you didn’t have to discomfort of wearing heels?? Some of the biggest trainer brands, like Nike and New Balance, are being swapped for customised and stylish alternatives from the likes of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and CriminalDamage, who offer a luxurious twist on a sportswear classic.
