Trend Alert: Sports Luxe

(L-R) Adidas Stella McCartney 2012 Running Jacket | Love Label Pocket Woven Vest | Oversized Canvas Shopper | Adidas Stella McCartney 2012 Knit Shorts | Love Label Printed Shorts | Ash Thelma High Buckle Wedge 

Apart from the Pastels and the Prints, thanks to the olympics 2012, the sporty look is one of spring/summers biggest trends. This is not sporty as you know it, it’s a more luxurious approach incorporating a mixture of luxe fabrics. When it comes to the sports trend, think neon, jersey, sweats, hoodies and rucksacks. All which can be stylishly done and styled, especially if you throw in a touch of leather to toughen up your whole look. Designer Alexander Wang sent his models down the runway adorned in amplified chevron signs whilst at Marc Jacobs, it was a more laid back sweater style. Check out our Love Label Chevron Knitted Jumper for a piece of the action yourself (and for a much cheaper price – high 5!). These Love Label Printed Shorts are also perfect because of the silky fabric, it helps lend a more feminine touch.

One collection that gooers have been going gaga for is the Stella McCartney and Adidas collaborations and aren’t you lot a lucky bunch, we stock them at Very! Check out the Adidas Stella McCartney 2012 Knit Shorts, they will instantly update and brighten any look and this Adidas Stella McCartney 2012 Running Jacket will keep you warm, stylish and ahead of the crowd.

Don’t forget about the accessories; this slouchy Oversized Canvas Shopper is a great size for day to day use, I carry so much around with me, I could probably fit my whole life in there! Perfect! Now, when the word ‘sporty’ springs to mind, I have the word ‘flat trainers’ flashing at the back of my mind, which to be honest, gives me shivers. I am very much of a heels kind of girl, I admire how great others look in trainers and flats but unfortunately not me (I’m only 5ft 3″). BUT, I didn’t need to worry, these Ash Thelma High Buckle Wedges are perfect for giving me the extra height whilst still being on trend. Who said trainers can’t be stylish eh?!
