Athletic-Inspired Dressing, In Honour of the Summer Games


The 2017 Canada Summer Games start tomorrow, and as sports fans AND Official Supporters of the Games, we couldn’t be more excited. With sports fever taking over the city, we’re even seeing the obsession with all things athletic creeping into our everyday sartorial choices. Going beyond the athleisure craze that’s been popular for several seasons now, we’re showing you our favourite stylish pieces that have taken major cues from the world of sports.

Tshirt dress + bomber jacket + platform sandals

A tshirt dress goes athletic with simple striping around the neckline. Sticking to the same palette throughout your look is an easy way to enhance the effect – just think like you’re repping your favourite sports team. We sported our colours with a sporty Adidas bomber jacket and platform sandals with running shoe inspired soles. Matte black hoop earrings and a chunky geometric ring have just the right weight and presence to play along.

Striped joggers + mesh panel tshirt + transparent heels

These striped joggers take major cues from your go-to track pants, but the tapered ankle also happens to be perfect for pairing with your favourite heels. Thanks to Kanye’s most recent Yeezy collection, transparent shoes are seriously trending and the striped detail on this pair is the perfect compliment. Mesh detailing is another uniform staple made street-ready with this pretty white tee – wear it tucked in at the front to define your waist. A long-line vest is a more structured, fashion-focused top layer that will keep things athletic-inspired vs straight-up sporty.
