Current Crush: Sports Swag
Whether you call it athleisure, sports luxe or streetwear, the trend for mixing athletic cuts and separates into your everyday wardrobe is racing into the new season, bigger than ever. For FW16 we’ve thrown a curve ball with a fresh new feel. The key difference this season? Major 90's vibes, head-to-toe.
Performance fabrics, tech-y finishes, and gamed-up separates have been dominating the best-dressed scoreboards – now it’s all about stripping things back and channelling the 90's tracksuit champ: Sporty Spice. Think classic zip-up and padded jackets, straight-cut joggers, crop tops, and white tees.
Jacket $14, pants $14
Pairing sneaks with tapered pants won’t win you any medals – this is NOT Normcore! Instead, jump into the look and suit up like a dedicated pro. Bold primary colors like red and blue are a great throwback to the days of track & field: we're calling halftime on black and modern metallic color combos. Classic contrast trims deliver the new true sportswear vibe.
Not a huge fan of joggers? No prob! This look also calls out some sweet 90's throwbacks, like the bomber jacket. In traditional styles with contrast trim and an old-school collegiate feel, you’ll also find the classic jacket revived with prints, embroidery and badges. Sweatshirts are another workhorse piece. Go for classic heather gray or pull-on a slogan sweat to nail another new season big-hitter.
On the bottom, simple minis set the stage for our the evolution of our FW16 centerpiece collection, which segues into 70's-inspired looks for September. And for you denim junkies, stone and acid wash jeans in retro cuts (think straight, ankle, and mom-jeans) make sure you get your fix.
Jacket $29, sweater $14, jeans $20, sneakers $13
Accessories go functional: backpacks slay the competition and grab the prize for utility and style. Minimalism is definitely not the name of this game, even with the nineties inspo – so grab yours with plenty of pockets, buckles, and zips. Colorwise, keep it fresh in black, white and olive. Low-key players can thrown on a metallic backpack or try trendy velvet with our gorgeously luxe versions--it's all good!
Laid-back sneaks are of course still our fave footwear picks. White toes and lace-up low tops keep your style sprinting into first place. Stacked soles up your height and give supreme Spice Girls style.
Don’t wait for the whistle! Make tracks to stores ASAP to avoid coming second in the fashion game this season… On your marks, get set, go!
