Thirty-nine days and counting. Athletes push, strengthen, hydrate, fuel, and rest their bodies for the looming London Olympics. Their uniforms hanging in closets waiting for a gleaming debut atop track, deck, mat, horse, bike, water, ice, and field. These aren’t your typical Spandex shorts. Color, cut, and pattern are carefully illustrated, as Designers Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, and Armani change their game to create functional fashions for the their countries’ physical elite.
Olympians are not the only individuals allowed to win in sleek sportswear this year. Designers such as Kenzo, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, and Adidas sent sport-inspired fashions down the runway last fall for their s/s 2012 collections.
Take a cue from this trend–one STYLE.com encourages its readers to fashion. ”Game On“.
Whether you run with a sleek sporty hairstyle, a windbreaker, or a neon accessory, you’ll feel ready to play this summer.
A recent self-coordinated fashion show featured sportswear styled with an everyday edge. Born to Run showcased their Barefoot running shoe, compression tights, running tops/bottoms, and water bottle accessories on the runway (how appropriate…) of LOCAVORE.
Hit the ball out of the court and dare to be a little different wearing brilliant athletic (inspired) fashions this summer!
