012615 Sports Luxe Redux
With the sports luxe trend still going strong, I paired my sweat shorts with my favourite Miu Miu's. I haven't had the best experience with Miu Miu in the past, so I was really happy to find that these shoes are as comfortable as they look. The metal pointed toe makes it a bit more sophisticated than your average slip on and the white contrast sole gives the shoe a cool vibe. I also accessorized with my Alexander Wang Rocco duffle bag. The hardware on this bag is rose gold but I don't mind mixing metals. In fact, I prefer it for the contrast.
I'm wearing my black muscle tee from kor NYC which is actual athletic wear. To keep the look from being "I just got back from the gym" and more "urban sports wear inspired", I topped off the shirt with my leather jacket. This is the perfect example of why it's important to invest in quality jackets, shoes and bags. They can really change your entire outfit in such a dramatic way and keep you looking polished. If you're on a budget, look for pieces with beautiful details. These sweat shorts are under $50. They have piping in the front and the back, a drop crotch, two front pockets and a white drawstring with metal tips. They remind me of the Alexander Wang pants from 2010. Bonus: they didn't shrink in the dryer like so many other sweats that I have.
