Trends for 2017- sportswear

Here is a trend that l haven't seen since l was 12. Following on from the sportswear/athleisure wear that was huge in 2016 designers are taking it further for 2017 with activewear creeping into their collections. The catwalk saw windbreakers, nylon parkas, leggings and trackpants. Collections also have a 1980's feel with colour-blocked neon colours, techno fabric and drawstrings. Nylon trackpants 

Moodboard for 2017 sportswear

For some you this is going to be a hard one to get your heard around, especially for those who grew up in the 80's like me have memories of wearing a shellsuit. However styled carefully it could really grow on you and put you ahead of the crowd.
Here are some of my suggestions...

The bright colour of this windbreaker against the clean lines of the cropped sweatshirt, plaited hair keeps this look fresh and modern.

Olivia Palermo never puts a foot wrong and here she's kept it smart and sporty

I love this look and will definitely be on the look out for some similar track pants. Such an easy look to pull off and could be worn with heels or trainers.

The pairing of track pants with a chunky jumper is a safe and wearable way to buy into this trend.

Going full tracksuit is a braver choice but these pictures show that it can be done (just please don't go velour). Keep it smart and make sure your hair and make-up is immaculate and accessories are well-chosen. Especially love the 3rd option and the bottoms are a cross between a trackpant and a smart trouser.

Hope you guys feel brave and give it a go...keep an eye on my Instagram account for my take on this.
