TRENDING: Sportswear

With the London Olympics 2012 officially off and running, I think that's enough encouragement to the category of sportswear. Although, those of us who are reading this are obviously not fit enough to be in the Olympics (or else we would be hardcore training right now), there's still the option of PRETENDING that we possess just a sliver of athleticism through our careful selection of what to wear.


Sportswear was a huge trend seen on the Spring/Summer 2012 runways making a return of lightweight clothing, laser cut mesh and zipped bomber jackets. Of course, clean lines and body conscious forms were used throughout as essentially, sportswear were made for fit athletes with the most lean and toned bodies.
Vera Wang opted for simple shades of grey and white for that fuss free effect. Bill Blass decided to inject some high fashion into the varsity crew and Alexander Wang leaned on the rebel side of 'athletic chic' with his collection inspired by motorsports. Throw in some utilitarian elements such as oversized zippers and pockets and you're basically half way there to winning a gold medal. (well... don't we all dream?)
