First of all, let me start by saying I am not a sporty person and I don’t really care about fitness. Yes, I’ll go for a run or hit the gym every now again but this is only to keep me fitting into Saint Laurent and not any other foolish reason. It’s funny what vanity will motivate you to do. Which is maybe why I’ll never really grasp the notion of sportswear, yes I’ve flirted with the idea of sports luxe but to be honest that was more of an excuse to wear daytime leather pieces rather than look like a hooligan who just appreciates exotic skins. But I can appreciate clothing that is influenced by sports gear and uniforms – chunky cricket knits, boxy sweats and baseball style shirts. But probably my favourite at the moment has to be zipped tops like this style from Paul Smith. Fresh , bold and flirty, the mock necked tops with their three quarter zips make me feel like I’m athletic all without the hassle of actually hitting the gym.
