Sporty Fashion Trend Then And Now

Fashion and sport – do they ever come in pair? Stupid question, have you seen Maria Sharapova shoe collection by Cole Haan or David Beckham doing a photoshoot for H&M Bodywear? There’s hell a lot of fashion out there. Sporty fashion heads to comfort – basically, everything you wear to play tennis, swim or run is comfy. That’s why designers came up with the idea of adopting a wide world of active influences in spring summer fashion.

Spring Summer 2010 Fashion Trend: Sporty Style

We have seen sporty looks before in a past spring seasons but every time it is back with a slightly different attitude. Let’s start the time machine to see what was presented in 2010. Alexander Wang’s collection included American football-inspired outfits (college T-shirts and leather shorts), Bottega Veneta got inspiration from a Karate Kid movie, Hermès was clearly fascinated with tennis while Derek Lam wanted to turn fashionistas into baseball player’s girlfriends. This means a more literal take on the sporty trend.

For those who are more star player than spectator, I suggest these Free Run+ 5.0 trainers from Nike designed to provide a barefoot feel. On your marks, get set, go!

This summer designers pay attention more to the ladylike sporty pieces. Athletic-inspired outfits with a feminine touch were prevalent throughout many spring summer 2014 fashion shows. Alexander Wang’s abounded with tennis skirts, fancy pullovers and anoraks. DKNY presented sporty lightweight layers paired with sneakers, and Victoria Beckham balanced out bomber jackets with ladylike dresses. Also, Marc Jacobs went down in history with his elevated red and white tracksuit made of satin.

Other luxe reinterpretations of athletic uniforms can be found in slouchy tees updated with varsity stripes and numbers, track pants with vertical stripes, and bare midriffs – yes, crop top is not going anywhere. Also, bright colours, sheer fabrics, and mesh jackets – designers all got in on the sporty trend.

So, now we know sporty styles are back on track for spring and summer. But what to wear then? How about this cute sleeveless skater dress, with rounded neckline and cutout detailing to the sides? Such a style needs feminine accessorizing – high tops and retro bowler bag will complete the look in a distinctly on-trend tone.
