Fall Fashion Trend Report 2013 - Luxe Sportswear

August 21, 2013

Trudy Hanson from Hot Patterns kindly gave us her top trend for Fall 2013 - Luxe Sportswear. Take it away, Trudy!

When it comes to prints and colors, we've seen lots of different themes on the Fall runways-richly colored baroque prints, quirky-cool urban geometrics, deco-inspired color blocking, funky mixed floral pattern clashing and dark, gothic solids.

And lucky for us, all these moods work perfectly with this season's big story, Sportswear Luxe. This is really a modern take on classic sportwear pieces like trackpants, T-shirts and sporty satchels, this time rendered in elegant fabrics like crepe-de-chine, drapey velvet, boucle and cashmere...the key here is slouchy, drapey fabrics in sporty styles.

Choose your colors, pick your prints, then decide...a tailored trackpant in a heavy crepe, a relaxed windcheater in china silk, a slouchy woven T-shirt in silk chiffon or a duffle-bag in mock-croc faux leather. Think drawstring waist pants and skirts, classic T-shirt shapes and cool sporty details like visible metal zippers, two or three stripes of contrast satin ribbon down the sides of dresses, jackets, skirts & pants, and piped or embellished seamlines for an added gloss of sporty glamour.

And the great thing about this new direction is that most Sport-Luxe pieces will mix beautifully with your existing wardrobe...team with your favorite vintage distressed jeans, a boyfriend blazer, a classic pencil skirt or a trim turtleneck sweater for a modern and totally unique look.
