Sportswear is equally loved by women and men for the comfort and ease it offers. Fashion stylists have been reproving girls for wearing track pants with heels or Birkin handbags, whereas designers have made this tendency legal. One of the major trends of spring/summer season 2014 is glamorous sport.
Glamorous Sport 2014
Couturiers made an attempt to perform an athleticwear collection in superior glam materials, such as silk, mesh and leather. Gucci models presented mesh T-shirts with matching bras, silky skirts and heels. Similar mesh T-shirts with mini skirts were spotted in Tom Ford’s spring collection. Emilio Pucci offered to wear short sporty shorts with a bright sweatshirt and heeled summer booties. Even Prada unveiled a sporty version of a pencil skirt, completed with knee socks. Vera Wang featured a sporty skirt suit with sheer inserts. Allure of sport has also swept through collections of Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Sacai, Paco Rabbane, Marni, Iceberg, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, VPL and other brands.
Contrasts in styles and materials are still going to be in fashion for the next couple of years. So, designers offer us more and more unusual contrasting ideas. The spring/summer 2014 couture collection from Prada featured sneakers decorated with pearls, lace, python and tweed even with cocktail dresses!
Whether to wear athletic wear outside a gym or not is your personal matter, while looking stylish even when you are exercising is certainly no crime. Female tracksuits with prints are one of the main trends in spring/summer sportswear collections. These may include abstract, geometric or camo prints.
Athleticwear Or Casual Style?
Today we see that the verge between athleticwear and casual style is getting very vague. The most popular current design of trackpants with elastic ankle or rib at bottom is also repeated in pants for casual wear. Christopher Kane, for instance, decorates such pants with lace, while DKNY offers the same type of pants in a trendy metallic color.
Pair your trackpants with T-shirts of contrast or luminescent colors which are currently found in collections of both mass market and lux brands.
Sports and fashion have a common goal – to make us more beautiful. So, why not to blend them?
