How you can embrace the sports luxe trend
In breaking news, ‘casual chic’ has a new look. Yep, it’s called sports luxe and if you keep an eye on the runways, you’re bound to have seen it shimmying down the catwalks for brands such as See by Chloe, Acne and Phillip Lim. After the designers got on board, it didn’t take long for the trend to filter down to the streets – and for good reason.
You see, what makes the sports luxe trend so attractive is the fact that it’s a new brand of ‘sophisticated sporty’ and is the perfect dress code for a number of occasions; from a chic dinner party to a casual weekend coffee catch-up. The great thing about this trend? You don’t have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe if you don’t want to. The addition of a few simple-yet-chic hair accessories and the right hairstyles will propel you well into the heart of the trend – and we’ve got four examples to show you how it’s done.
Look #1: The wavy lady
Looking for a way to rock classic waves in a polished way? Adding a statement headband that’s not too in-your-face is the key. Not only do the navy and gold bars on the Lady Jayne Sports Luxe Hair Necklaces fit within the sports luxe trend to a tee, but they also ensure that your ‘do stays looking elegant – with next to no effort!
bh hint: when creating waves, be sure to curl your hair in the same direction and allow your strands to completely cool before brushing them out.
Look #2: The tailored top knot
Normally reserved for grungy, ‘thrown together’ look, the top knot hardly seems like it would fit into the sports luxe category. Luckily, it’s all about placement and accessories. To take a top knot from sloppy to sophisticated, it’s all about placement. Make sure your top knot sits right in the middle of your head, at around the highest point possible. Finish it off by adding layers of Lady Jayne Sports Luxe Hair Bracelets. Stacking them on top of each other will add an element of glamour to your look.
Look #3: The preened ponytail
A sleek, low-slung ponytail is the ultimate sports luxe ‘do. Simple and easy to achieve, this chic pony is best when straightened with an iron and kept in place with just a bit of gel and hairspray to tame the flyaways. Perfect for a formal event or even a day of shopping, this edgy style benefits from adding a bit of texture. We recommend the Lady Jayne Sports Luxe Pony Snap, as the white faux-leather band that wraps around the hairband is the perfect addition to any structured pony.
Look #4: The braided stud
Brilliant braids are all the rage, especially if you want to get involved with the sports luxe trend. The relaxed style is perfect to pair with some eye-catching accessories - namely braids that are fastened with chic, sleek pins. The Lady Jayne Sports Luxe Double Bar Pins come in gold, white and hot pink and are a perfect way to fasten your braids to your crown, especially when they adorn flowing, wavy locks.
