Current crush: sports vibes

Whether you call it athleisure, sports luxe, or streetwear, the trend for blending athletic silhouettes and separates into your everyday wardrobe is racing into the new season with continued stamina. For AW16 we’ve thrown a curve ball, with a fresh interpretation. The key differences this season are unashamedly 90s vibes, and head-to-toe embracement.

Primark

Backpack £10

While performance fabrics, technical finishes, and up-specced separates have dominated best-dressed scoreboards, now it’s all about stripping things back and channelling the champion of 90s tracksuits: Sporty Spice. Think classic zip-through jackets, straight-cut joggers, crop tops, white tees, and padded jackets.

Jacket £10, trousers £10

Teaming trainers with tapered trousers won’t win you any medals – this is NOT Normore! Instead dive into the look and kit yourself out like a dedicated pro. Bold primary hues, like red and blue, serve as a time portal to the days of track-n-field – with halftime being called on black and contemporary metallic colour combos – while classic contrast trims deliver a true sportswear feel.

Jacket £10

Not a trackie fan? No worries, this look also calls on some excellent 90s throwbacks like the bomber jacket. Available in traditional styles with contrast trims and a collegiate feel, you’ll also find the classic jacket revived with print, embroidery and badging. Sweatshirts are another hero item. Go for archetypal grey marl or pull-on a slogan sweat to nail another new season big-hitter. 


On the bottom, simple mini skirts set the stage for our the evolution of our AW16 mainline collection, which segues into 70s-inspired looks come September. While, for denim heads, stone and acid wash jeans in retro silhouettes (think straight cut, ankle-grazers, and mom shapes) will ensure you get your fix.

Accessories bolt into functional territory, with backpacks slaying all the competition and grabbing the prize for utility and style. Minimalism isn’t the name of this game, despite the nineties inspo, so grab yours with plenty of pockets, buckles, and zips. Colour-wise, keep things fresh in black, white, or khaki. Underdogs might throw-on a metallic rucksack, which is all good too, or dabble in the trend for velvet with our gorgeously luxe versions. 


Naturally, sneakers still prevail as the footwear of choice. White shell-toes, and lace-up low tops will keep your style sprinting into fist place. Opt for stacked soles for added height and supreme Spice Girls style.

Don’t wait for the whistle! Start making tracks to stores ASAP to avoid the disappointment of coming second in the sartorial stakes this season… On your marks, get set, go!
