TAILORED SPORTSWEAR FOR HIMFashion
04 July 2016
This season merges the relaxed casual vibe of sportswear with clean tailored pieces. We break down the trend that is tailored sportswear below:
Dust off the light grey and blue blazers of season’s past or inject some new neutral tones.
Think taupe, beige, grey and soft blue. Structured accompaniments like blazers and knitwear are a refreshingly lighter shade than you’d normally expect for winter which makes for a more classic and classy look.
TRACKPANTS WITH A SLEEK EDGE
The jogger-style trackpants of last season have been revamped.
Instead of sweat fabrics, expect to see these styles taken up a notch with the introduction of leather inserts, denim and drill fabrics. Overall this makes for a sleeker look which moves beyond casual wear to a night out.
HIGH QUALITY FABRICS
To achieve a look that transcends sportswear expect to find a better quality of fabric.
Similar to the reworked trackpant, you’ll also find that bomber jackets and windbreaker-style jackets will be finished in higher quality fabrics like leather or leather-look materials.
You can also expect to find heavy twill blazers and V-neck sweaters in good quality wool knit.
The oversized look has been replaced with a more fitted style of jacket.
For a classic sporty meets country club vibe try wearing a jogger chino pant with a structured blazer and leather sneakers. Alternatively, look for a lightweight jacket with a close-fit and sporty details like zips and chrome buttons.
