Sports Luxe

Growing up, I was unequivocally a tomboy who preferred sports over fashion and only wore dresses for weddings. Although these predilections didn't stick with me into adulthood, they have influenced my current style. I still love the ease of a tee shirt and track pant, but with updated details: something along the lines of a mesh insert, white piping, or neoprene element. There's something so attractive about the sports luxe style that it's no wonder the fashion world has come to embrace it. 

(Joe Fresh dress, available here; Fendi shoes, belt, buggy; Balenciaga bag)

What I love about my Joe Fresh dress is the contrast between the delicate, layered skirt and athletic black & white details along the neckline and sleeves. It's the perfect combination of feminine and sporty. I kept the shoes and belt in the same monochromatic palette, and added a fun pop of color with my Balenciaga. 

Are you a fan of the sporty trend, and what are some of your favorite pieces? I would love to hear your thoughts on my outfit! Thanks so much for reading and see you again soon.

  1. I definitely love the spotty trend! Love that you mentioned it, I just saw some pieces with it on American Apparel. I'm not really an orange type person but I adore how you used it in this outfit. Such a nice pop :)

  38. Yet another beautiful outfit Jess, you never fail to stun with your gorgeous ensembles and lovely face! I love the contrasts of both the dress and the background, I remember seeing the first pic on instagram and thinking it was so beautiful! I too used to be a total tomboy when I was younger and would fight my mom on wearing a dress every Sunday to church... Nowadays I find myself wearing skirts more than pants! Nevertheless, I also find the appeal of sports luxe so attractive because you can get away with wearing comfortable designs yet still feel very chic and sophisticated-- what's not to love??

  59. I very much had the same sentiments growing up. I threw on t-shirt and baggy jeans over skirts/dresses. My mom always had to "force" me to wear the girlier clothing. haha.

  60. Growing up I was tomboy as well. I have older brother and we spent together with his friends all time. Dresses for me was big drama, I hated them. Now I love to dress up and in my wardrobe I have more dresses then ever I had, yet I love t-shirt and jeans pairing. You look fabulous in this sports luxe look and what a great location for photoshoot.

  61. hehe, to be honest with you I wouldn't even say it's a sporty dress because it rather seems "classy with a twist" to me ;) those layers look like ruffles so the dress is also flowy and feminine and again, far from sporty in my eyes. but it doesn't even matter. I like that dress! to me sporty means trainers, sweatpants and sweatshirts. those three don't have to come together of course :P
