The sports luxe trend has been hanging around for a couple of seasons now and while I own plenty of fitness clothing, I couldn’t ever see myself pairing overpriced jogging bottoms and sweatshirts with stiletto heels. I think the issue is that to wear the trend head to toe requires polished hair and make-up – something you’re unlikely to see round these parts.
I picked these navy trousers up in the Zara sale and they are hands-down one of the most comfortable pairs I own (sorry, florals). I was originally put off by the baggy seat and tight ankles combo, worrying that they looked and felt too much like jogging bottoms to be considered ‘luxe’. Happily, they are slouchy in a good way and my friends and colleagues have assured me that I don’t look like I’m about to start running up and down stairs a là Rocky.
These trousers cost £17.99 in the sale – not bad for a pair that I can see myself wearing year-round. They actually remind me of a pair that Niki owns, so I’ll have to look to her for some style inspiration!
