Style Advisor: The New Sportswear

Working out is now a style statement. Even if you have no intention of going to the gym, workout gear and sports-inspired pieces are wardrobe staples for the modern woman. Fashion’s new mood means unrestrictive, practical garments that reference athleticwear without being overtly ‘sporty’ – these looks are as suited to the city streets as they are a HIIT training class. Much like its close relative streetwear, activewear is the cool-girl’s uniform for now, and you don’t have to be an athlete to wear it.

THE ELEVATED TRACKSUIT

Y-3 is the brainchild of avant-garde designer Yohji Yamamoto and sportswear giant Adidas. Plug in to the legacy and opt for the brand’s contemporary silhouettes and iconic three stripes for a street style-ready take on the tracksuit.

MONOCHROME STAPLES

Feminine and athletic, a chic monochrome colour palette of black and white is a failsafe way to wear the sporting trend. Build a sleek capsule wardrobe of elevated sportswear essentials by seeking out co-ordinating pieces in directional and classic styles.

THE TECHNICAL PUFFA

For autumn, a technical puffa coat will be your closet hero. Adidas by Stella McCartney and Off-White have a number of styles that combine functionality with ultra-stylish form. Practical outerwear never looked so good.
