Sporty Romanticism and Its Key Pieces!

Sporty Romanticism and Its Key Pieces!

This season we are mixing sporty with romantic elements in almost any outfit, day and evening. Designers came up with these intricate mixes seeking to combine great style with functionality. We need to look great, but we also aspire to feel comfortable. Having a few more pockets, a hood, or an adjustable waistline makes a huge difference in our daily lives and immensely boosts our confidence. Avant-garde today means comfy, yet put-together such as in this 3.1 Phillip Lim Textured Woven Bomber Jacket!

Geometric Silhouette

Geometry plays an important role in the new approach. Trapeze, square, rectangular and triangular shapes constitute silhouettes that are defined by coolness and simplicity. The Sacai Star Lace Trenchcoat is a great example. The whole brand is dedicated to this kind of effect. Kendall Jenner and Zendaya rock this trend quite often!

Mannish Elements

We definitely blur gender lines by sometimes sharing clothes with our boyfriends. The androgynous look dominates our wardrobe for many years now, yet as we move on, we see silhouettes that bridge the style gap, representing equal parts feminine and masculine identities. Sacai’s cross of a mannish utility vest with a transparent sexy tunic makes waves! Kate Moss in oldie suit and sneakers is cool too!

Mix & Match

We start with a piece of neoprene, yet along the way this one is layered over silk or is beaded and combined with metallic leather. There is a crazy mix of old and new materials going on. Science revamps tradition and retro starts being relevant again. What about a bit of lace with denim jacket and sneakers? It sounds legit! Check Brunello Cucinelli’s pinstriped trackpants decorated with metallic leather stripes for a hint!

Functional Details

Drawstrings, zip closures, elasticated cuffs and waistlines, weather-proof elements, and silhouettes that completely ease our moves are things that busy globe-trotting women need right now. Throw a Maje bomber jacket over your dress and you are good to go!

Neutral Monochromes

It started with the ‘normcore’ trend and evolved as the easy-to-wear trend that helps us dress up in seconds. Neutrals mix well together and we don’t need to over-process what we keep in our closet. Being chic doesn’t require expert skills any more. Texture can make monochromes feel interesting without extra effort from your part.
