There has been a gradual shift in men’s fashion that is bringing gym clothes to the streets. Men’s sporty streetwear has become increasingly popular as busy lives are demanding more functionality from clothes in the crossover from our day jobs and into our recreational lives.
Sports Luxe Style
Promoters of the sports luxe style define men’s sports streetwear as being different than just a “fashion trend”, instead they call the evolution of gym clothes’ style a reflection of a change in this generations’ lifestyle. As so many people are spending a lot of time and money toward getting or staying in shape, they are also spending a lot of time and money on gym wear. For people who spend a lot of time at the gym, the natural evolution of their fashion needs would be to design their clothing to be more flexible in their everyday lives. In this way, a new category of fashion has been created that not only gets gym clothes out of the gym, but blends them with stylistic elements.
Because of this mix of fashion and functionality the sports luxe style is expanding into other walks of life other than just for those who enjoy spending time at the gym. Whether you consider this style as simple the dressing up of a gym outfit or a pairing down of a casual look, men’s sporty streetwear is creating a climate and culture all of its own.
What Makes Sports Streetwear Stand Out?
When it comes to sports streetwear, the devil is in the details. The difference between everyday sportswear that is suitable for a hard gym workout and the luxe edition of sportswear is quality. The quality and cut of the fabric, the quality of embellishments like types of zippers, buttons and some breathable portions of the garment all lend themselves to giving a sports streetwear vibe to an otherwise regular gym outfit. Often the outfit is topped off when accessories are added to the picture: hats, fashion trainers, and jackets are all go to items that help create an individual look.
Who Wears Sports Streetwear?
One of the reasons going for the sports luxe style is so popular, is because of how easy it is to pull off. Part of the charm of the men’s sporty streetwear approach to fashion is its individuality. One can easily mix and match different tailored pieces with more casual attire like sweatshirts and hoodies to create an individualized and moldable outfit. On the opposite end of the spectrum, it is also easy to take a more fitted outfit and add sporty elements to contribute to the sports luxe style. This combination of assorted fabrics and accessories make the new men’s sporty streetwear a sleek and almost effortlessly put together method of approaching fashion that almost anyone can appreciate.
