sports luxe inspiration
As you can well tell from my recent ootd's, I have really been into sports luxe fashion these past few months. I love the androgyny of it and the out-of-the-box thinking required to pull off the outfits.
Most of the time, I take my inspiration from football, basketball and skateboarding but there is another sport that is not as popular (but has always been a guilty pleasure of mine since the 80s) that I also look to for cool pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe...roller derby!
Aside from the catchy nicknames they give themselves (Michelle O' BamYa, Princess Lay-Ya Flat (Princess Leia), Clitty Clitty Bang Bang (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), to name a few) and their wild annual tournaments (spanksgiving, cinco de mayhem), they also have crazy, cool gear like the ones in the photo below, which are guaranteed to give you instant street style credit points!
I am particularly partial to these running shorts and knee high socks. I think they will look totally awesome with an oversized sweater. How about you, are you into the sports luxe trend as well? What are your favorite sporty pieces? :)
