January may be the month for breaking out the running trainers, but this time round you won’t only be looking sporty for the gym. However, instead of being inspired by a new yoga fad, for 2014 it’s all about ballsports – basketball to be exact. In recent months more than ever before we’ve seen A-list stars flocking to basketball matches taking their position on the front row courtside (CROW) and many have taken advantage of the new luxe sportwear on offer.
Basketball games have always been known for entertaining celebrities as the likes of Jay-Z and Beyoncé, the Beckhams and even Anna Wintor have all sat courtside before. Of course, usually the stars have to fly stateside to get a piece of the action but last night London played host to the NBA basketball match between Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks which saw a whole host of London’s fashionable stars including Stella McCartney and Ellie Goulding to the London O2 arena.
To get the courtside look, make like Cara Delevingne and Rihanna and snap up a basketball tee and cap. If you want to rock the trend but don’t want to look like you’re actually about to play in a match look at Jordan Dunn and Ellie Goulding for style inspiration, opt for a luxe sweater (Kenzo and Zoe Karssen have a great selection) or a logo t-shirt and leather joggers (Topshop have the perfect pair and at a purse friendly price) to channel the sports vibe subtly.
From sweaters to oversized sports tees and slip on sneakers, we’ve picked the best sports inspired pieces to get you looking fit and chic!
