Everyone remembers tops with the embellishments of American football symbols by Tom Ford. To tell the truth now it is difficult to find the designer or a fashion brand which has not been inspired with the sport and avoid sporty elements. Such labels as Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Celine and Marc Jacobs create wonderful pieces for the upcoming autumn. Alexander Wang has shown his attitude to sporty tendencies with the sculptural silhouettes. Miuccia Prada has created wonderful ski jackets with sporty elements and cute sporty skirts. Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel, has made glamorous sneakers and paired them with baggy sporty pants and bright overcoats. Vera Wang offers cropped windbreakers and Gucci has created shirts which are inspired by basketball nets. Theyskens’ Theory offers to wear bright beautiful cycling shorts to be popped out from the hemline. Marni has decorated the sun visor with jewels. This trend can help you create different ever-winning looks with the help of luxurious and slek elements.
Athletic trend is very popular. You can look very stylish and sophisticated just remembering several tips. On the runways we have seen lots of collections made of luxurious textured fabrics like washed satin, silk, wool, organza, which are contrasting to the sporting silhouettes. The collections can be luxurious and sporty at the same time. What pieces to look for to create a gorgeous sporty look? Opt for basketball shorts and various track pants in bold colours and with patterns. They should be made of expensive luxurious fabrics like Cucci’s matte satin, jacquard and lurex athletic wear. Jackets and loose pants can be made in crepe, sequins or even washed satin. Marc Jacobs have used them in his collection of the sportswear. Light skirts, bright sleek tops and beautiful bomber jackets can be created in tweed or satin. Prabal Gurung offers wonderful athletic pieces. If you can’t live without dresses, look for the sleeveless one with flare silhouette in bright colours, like neoprene items by DKNY created in electric blue.
This is the main feature of this season. Minimalism and luxury work together to create wonderful items. We can see clean shapes, relaxed silhouettes and few decorative elements. Look for the boxy silhouettes, crop tops with perforation and simple dresses. In other words, opt for sporty pieces which are relaxed and very simple at the same time.
Sport tendencies in the fall 2014
When the colder season comes the silhouettes become slouchier, roomy and more voluminous. You can use different layers with contrasting fabrics to create a perfect look. The choice of materials changes a little, now it is determined by the cold weather – you don’t wear mesh clothes but leather, velvet, fur and wool become more useful. Jewel adornment can add luxurious details to the sporty pieces. Look for dresses and skirts of tennis-style, track pants with leather patterns. Kye, Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott offer wool jackets and beautiful voluminous shirts in sport style cutting in fur. Autumn is a cold season, that’s why sweatshirt dresses and velvet sweatshirts will be a good addition to your basic wardrobe.
Sporty minimalism in the fall 2014
This summer tendency has transitioned to the cooler months with minimum efforts. Easy dresses, sporty shorts and cropped tops have been replaced by loose sweatshirts, warm voluminous dresses and various bombers. To create an autumn sporty look, pair your outfits with the heeled boots, add statement accessories and put on darker lips. In autumn everyone wants to feel comfort and be warm. Opt for the pieces which can be layered easily and look cute when they are worn.
