MVP: Sport Utility SS 14

I have been coveting all things Sport Utility for years now. In reality I secretly wish that I could wear my joggers all day, everyday, and with the resurgence of sportswear we all can now wear these comfortable pieces day or night. Unlike past seasons this year's version of sport utility has been glammed up in luxurious fabrics and blinged out detailing as seen at Prada, Marc Jacobs and Mary Katrantzou.

The key to pulling off this trend without looking like you just left the yoga studio is all about balance and proportion. No need to go head to toe, simply embrace the trend by replacing your jeans with track pants or your blouse with a colourful jersey. Lose the ponytail, add strappy sandals and a bold lip to take your look to the next level. Not into track pants or jerseys? Just throw on a pair of brightly coloured sneakers with your weekend shopping ensemble. I mean every girl knows shopping is the best cardio.

– Santanae

Afiya Says: I agree! I've made no secret about my love of tomboy chic and this sporty vibe is my favourite recent interpretation. Like Santanae advises, no need to go full tilt: a little perforation (extra points for leather), a cool varsity/bomber jacket, athletic-inspired shoes or visor will do quite nicely.
