One of the biggest trends this season is luxe sportswear. The Spring Summer ‘14 collections were heaving with athletic inspired looks from Tommy Hilfiger’s scuba styled dresses to Prada’s embellished ribbed sports socks and matching satin bomber and miniskirts from Marc by Marc Jacobs; combined with this season’s sporty textures of leather, satin and mesh netting, this makes for an easily wearable (and oh-so-comfortable) wardrobe.

This style is all about elevating your standard gym wear. Ditch the lycra and polo shirts as this time round the sportswear trend is all about luxe materials and detailing. Leather joggers have out-run the track pants, embroidered bomber jackets have replaced the hoodie and chunky sandals and slides are your new kicks.

Slouchy tees and jumpsuits also make for a perfectly sporty ensemble without looking like you’ve brought the gym to the bar! For those of you who find the sequin bomber and silk sweat shorts a bit too much why not buy into the sporty trend by opting for the little details instead? Racer back tops, go-faster stripes, drawstrings and mesh panelling are all small ways to give a subtle nod to the vibe.

If this look is still too bold for you, the trend lends itself very well to accessorising. Think elasticated belts, knee high socks or leg warmers and even visors to get the sports day chic look.

To make it ever easier for you we’ve shopped around for the top 50 luxe sportswear items! Click through the gallery above and get shopping!
