Sports Luxe

by Theodora Beckett

Author- Theo Beckett

This month we’re all about the sports luxe look. Cool, comfy and above all, chic. What could be better? See how the stars are styling the trend this summer…





Victoria Beckham





There’s no look Victoria Beckham can’t pull off both effortlessly and stylishly, and this is no exception. If you’re looking for an easy-to-wear outfit to take you through the season, this is one of the best out there.

A pair of relaxed wide leg trousers deliver a gorgeously laid back look, and can be worn with just about anything. A sporty tee looks great, but for more dressed up occasions try pairing with a bandeau top or a pretty cami for a more feminine look.

Alexa Chung






From a mid-summer day in the office, to evening drinks, we’re loving Alexa Chung’s take on sports luxe. Wear a sporty top (think stripes, slogans, slouchy shapes) with a sleek pencil skirt – leather gives a sharper finish but suede will look gorgeous too.

Pair with sleek slider sandals for a day time look or glam it all up with some sky high heels.

Kate Beckinsale





Kate Beckinsale is the queen of sleek, so for those of you tend to steer clear of very casual looks, sit up and take notice: this is sports luxe done the super chic way.

Pair your favourite sports pants (go for a side stripe for an extra oomph of sports luxe) with a simple tee and add some summer heels or luxe trainers and a long lightweight coat  to the mix. Glamour achieved, zero effort required.
