In the moment: Athletica

A new trend that we can call "athletica" started off as tomboy chic heavily inspired by football, gym gear, and masculine sports. Looks that are less masculine and more feminine or androgynous are the sporty elements that create structured cuts are specialized in luxurious fabrication such as leather, silk, chiffon, and jersey. Sportswear has been a fashion trend over the past few years but this spring there has been nothing but an Olympic burst of sporty chic inspiration in the air. Sleek, functional, with a minimalist leaning this season sportswear offers many new opportunities for wardrobe inspiration when recreating those runway looks.
