Streetwear Trends That Are About to Be HUGE
Stylish gym wear, high-class sweatpants, elegant sneakers – no one would have thought that these collocations could ever be possible. But, trendy streetwear made it onto the catwalk seemingly overnight. Oversized cardigans, cool patterned leggings and laid-back style have become more fashionable than ever. Whether this style is here to stay, remains to be seen.
Gym Wear as a Streetwear
The whole idea behind this modern sporty look is to be able to wear clothes that are cozy and versatile. Many fashion designers have realized that gym clothes can be blended with more formal streetwear. They have, so far, made brilliant up-to-the-minute gym clothes that you can wear in both casual and smart occasions.
So, if you’re up for trying out some of the streetwear trends that are all the rage this season, here’s a list we’ve come up with that might be of some help.
Replace Jeans with Sweatpants
Who says sweatpants can’t be stylish? Tailored sweatpants are, at the moment, the best substitute for jeans you can think of. Many high-end brands have included them in their offer, like Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, etc. Combining edgy with sporty, like wearing sweatpants and heels, is regarded sporty and elegant.
For achieving the urban-chic look, wear a leather jacket or a denim vest and a pair of heels. Want more glamour, go for leopard print sweatpants, a classic white t-shirt and a tailored black or bold red hue blazer. Or, if you want to keep it casual, you’ll hit the mark by wearing sneakers and a cozy t-shirt. Actually, those sweatpants that are elastic and fall just above the ankle are perfect for showing off your cool sneakers!
Chic Gym Accessories
Do you have a gym bag that’s neither too big, nor too small? If yes, you can use it as streetwear, and be as sophisticated as ever. A note: if you combine it with some elegant clothes, make sure that the bag is not too colorful.
Cardigans Are a Must-Have
Oversized cardigans are extremely useful, cozy and versatile type of clothes. They’re sporty and elegant at the same time, so you can wear them in any occasion. One the other hand, you can opt for an off-the-shoulder top or sweater. Fans instantly went mad for Rihanna’s fur-trimmed off-the-shoulder pink coat when she walked into Dior this spring. Revealing a peek of skin by tugging a sweater to one side is considered chic and elegant. A styling tip you should definitely try out!
Celebs Looking Amazing In Sportswear
Gym wear is becoming as fashionable as it is functional. Activewear collections are being launched and bought in an instant. There are rad print leggings, cropped yoga tops, edgy mesh tanks and other cool pieces people are just crushing on. Stylish gym look has been delivered to us by BFFs Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, while Beyoncé co-founded the new activewear label, Ivy Park. While girls are rocking these, guys can make their own stylish variants with bodybuilding clothes.
Bomber Jacket? Yes, Please!
Black, army green, metallic or tan, a bomber jacket has been the latest fad. Another dashing option of this kind is wearing the leather jacket. Whether it’s brightly colored, oversized or vintage, it doesn’t matter! It goes well with absolutely anything and everything.
So, there are some options you can experiment with. Try out wearing some casual pieces in a stylish way when you go out for dinner, and see what it feels like. Add a pair of carefully chosen sunglasses when you go out during a day, and you’ll feel as chic as ever.
