Sports Luxe is still going strong in men’s fashion for the year ahead. First making its mark in the industry just a few short years ago, as gym culture grows, sportswear in everyday fashion has become increasingly on-trend. In 2019 it’s all about that luxury edge, blurring the boundaries between smart and casual, with sportswear becoming increasingly polished. Read on to discover the top trends for men’s sports luxe style in 2019.
The Tailored Joggers
Joggers get a smart update for the year ahead and are a far cry from ‘joggers’ as we know them. You won’t find any marl or towelling materials here – it’s all about thin and light fabrics with a subtle sheen in a palette of dark and neutral shades. The sports luxe joggers are as comfortable as they are stylish. With a tapered leg and close-fitting cuff at the ankle, this polished take on the jogger could be mistaken for a smart suit trouser, with a modern twist.
The Bomber Jacket
The bomber jacket is a must for any sport luxe look. It can be styled with a simple everyday outfit such as straight leg jeans and one of these simple Hugo Boss golf shirts from Function 18 to add a sporty edge, or can be worn with tapered joggers for a full sports luxe style. Go for a statement bomber in a light material, making it perfect for all seasons. Khaki, navy, tan, black and grey are all stylish options for the year ahead, and materials such as nylon with a subtle sheen, leather or even a bomber with mesh details will nail this style.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to introduce the sports luxe look into your wardrobe is through your footwear – more specifically, with trainers. Trainers have taken on a whole new meaning in recent years and are no longer intended to be worn solely for comfort or sports. Think high tops with a flash of bold colour, playful velcro straps, thick and chunky soles – your footwear is the area where you can have some fun and add a colourful edge to your look.
If a full sports luxe look isn’t quite your thing, a great way to add a sporty edge to your style is through accessories. The backpack and the holdall will add an instant sporty feel, it’s all about the shape, details and materials. For a smart take on the sports backpack, try black leather with a round top and leather zip pulls, or opt for a backpack with mesh details. When it comes to holdalls, steer clear of leather, instead choosing ‘80s inspired designs in bold colours.
The sports luxe trend is incredibly versatile and can be adjusted to suit your own personal style and lifestyle. Whether a full sports luxe look is your thing, or you just want to introduce a laidback and on-trend edge, this trend will dominate in the year ahead and will add an instant cool vibe to your everyday style.
