Covet: Pro Wear

Okay I’m no sports enthusiast (aside from my joy for football), and I haven’t engaged in anything remotely sport related other than extreme shopping but that doesn’t mean that I’m not dying over the runway collections (and purchase-ready items) that are being served right now. (See how I did that?)

From courtside flouncy knee grazers at Viktor & Rolf to Opening Ceremonys sport influenced wear, athletic influence is everywhere.

As always, these are just a few of my picks for this trend. There’s a ton more where that came from and the accessories are endless. I would stick with simple though – gold and rosegold are perfect companions to this look and faux leather baseball caps and simple snapbacks can really cinch your look without making it too under-dressed.

Varsity style, leather biker and structured blazers can easily be thrown over these dresses and/or skirts and hey – the baggier – the better.
