We’ve already talked about how sporty styles have become omnipresent in the latest collections, and this hot trend is definitely one to follow. But there’s a fine line between incorporating a little athleticism into your look and wearing straight-up workout gear. Balancing your sneakers, sweatshirts or track pants with otherwise dressed-up items is one go-to technique. Of course, it’s never a bad idea to keep things somewhat cohesive, whether through multiple sportswear pieces or a constant color scheme. Meanwhile, high-quality fabrics and sleek silhouettes finalize the proper styling tactics. Although there are plenty more ways to achieve this look, here are a couple suggestions for taking on the sporty trend the right way:
NIKE cat eye glasses
Let these Pierre Hardy sneakers be the centerpiece of your sleek and sporty ensemble, adding metallic vibrance to the minimal separates. While this Alexander Wang neoprene sweatshirt keeps up the athletic aesthetic, a fun pair of shades keeps things looking bold. Tie all of the elements together with this equally urban Proenza Schouler satchel.
Neil Barrett Colour Block Neoprene Sweatshirt

There’s definitely room for the guys, too. Though this outfit could easily pass as some sort of sports uniform, it’s the luxe quality of each item that keeps it at the pinnacle of style. Starting off with the coveted Rick Owens x Adidas kicks, the look already has a sense of texture and austerity. A simple pair of Neil Barrett sweats allow for the same designer’s neoprene top to take over, adding the necessary pop of color to this all-black ensemble. And don’t forget to properly accessorize and reflect that color with this Dior Homme “chiffre rouge” timepiece. Throw on the essential 31 Hour Backpack from 3.1 Phillip Lim, top it all off with a sleek pair of Dior Homme sunglasses and get ready to win in terms of sports and style.
