With the fashion season now shifting to the national Capital, it’s time for us to look back and pick a trend that all of us can replicate, (and hope to see on the Delhi runways too!). Big-ticket brands have made their mark on the runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York in the past months, and now one of the hottest trends that we are dying to try ourselves, is wearing our gym tracks to parties, putting on those pyjamas for brunch and not being afraid of neoprene for that glam event.

In an interview with Relaxnews, designer Guillaume Henry, creative director of Nina Ricci said: “This season, I wanted a silhouette that borrows from the codes of sport. And from a sport that we almost all know: a soccer T-shirt and combat pants, for example.” This, to prove that from one season to another, the ramp is seeing a flurry of trends that could make your sports jersey, your pair of lined trackpants and your drawstring sweatpants, ready for the red carpet.

Get it in your wardrobe
There’s a tricky line between playing it sporty, and looking like you were plain lazy to dress up. Take a cue from our very own Kangana Ranaut, who attended a recent film premiere in a devil-may-care sporty separates.

That backpack just topped off the look. Beyond the drawstring pyjamas, go for quilted jackets a la Dior, a label which showcased a fencing-suit inspired ensemble in Paris. So much inspo to lap up!

Who’s wearing the pants?
Almost everyone! Ensembles inspired by martial art costumes, denim variations of drawstring pants and spandex sportswear is hitting the ramps all ove. A lot of celebrities make the sporty luxe look look utterly breezy. While designer Victoria Beckham is known to switch between sheaths and luxe track suits faster than you can say ‘sporty,’ others including models Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and sister Bella are often spotted up and about in Hollywood rocking laidback luxury like a pro.
