Don`t think of this trend as dressing in full blown workout gear, but look to incorporating certain elements, designs and fabrics into ensembles for that sporty inspired fashion you want to achieve. You don`t want to look like you`re heading to the gym – think catwalk creative! The use of metallic, PVC and hologram effects gives pieces a luxury feel and will work surprisingly well when worn with bright or pastel shades. This idea of fusing texture into outfits will transform a seemingly simple look into one that will extend your wardrobe.

Last spring/summer was all about the crop top and these midriff baring wonders are back once again to pair with high waisted skirts and trousers – a serious gym motivator! On dresses, detailing such as cutouts, panelling and mesh are perfect for subtle sporty style whilst a chic parker is the cover-up of choice. Layering can give looks depth and create interesting silhouettes too whether you want to take the trend in a smart or more eccentric direction.

When it comes to footwear, don`t think that trainers are your only choice as metallic designs and perplex heels will give sporty inspired fashion an elegant edge. Ready, set – go!
