On Trend: The Sportswear Update

Our obsession with sportswear is nothing new. In fact, sporting attire is so entrenched in our daily wardrobes that it hardly warrants a second thought. Or does it? As with all things to which you can become too accustomed, it’s time to re-think your sports pieces by shaking it up a bit. This season, the trend gets an update with a more sophisticated take on tracksuits, trainers and hooded sweats courtesy of Palm Angels, Stone Island and Maison Margiela. Here’s how to wear it.

SPORT MEETS STREET

Sportswear and streetwear go hand in hand. Off-White’s pieces are peppered with subtle sporting references, while Palm Angels take their cues directly from the skating culture of LA. Wear with slick white trainers courtesy of Dsquared2. It’s like a coming-of-age for your wardrobe.

BIG BOY BRANDS

The dons of Italian sportswear, Stone Island, have a singular vision for what menswear should be. Their tech-y jackets range from crinkle fabrics to reflective pieces that appeal to the school boy in all of us – but they come with an adult price tag and a whole lot of style cred. You’re playing with the big boys now.

ARTISANAL ATHLEISURE

You’re a grown-up (sort of), so your wardrobe should be grown-up too. Take the next steps into adulthood with Maison Margiela’s slick all-blue tracksuit. The French fashion house is notorious for a stripped-back aesthetic and re-works staple pieces with an artisanal approach. Score.
