As we ease back into our post-holiday reality, we don’t have to give up our vacation and sports entertainment kits just yet. In fact, thanks to a slew of designers like Loewe and fashion darlings like Hailey Bieber, we’re not only encouraged to keep wearing our beloved sweatpants and leggings, but to find more classy and cool ways to style them.

When it comes to the latter, that’s where we come in. Elevated sportswear starts with a strong foundation: choose one standout piece like a Saint Laurent blazer or a Gucci x Adidas knit crewneck as your starting base. Then round out the look with a solid list of wardrobe essentials like a plain white t-shirt or cute denim. This outfit formula has a dedicated catwalk boost – and as we gear up for the Fall 2023 shows, we’d be surprised not to see a few sporty outfits showcased on the catwalk and on the street.

Above all, Loewe focused its attention on leisure time through trendy tracksuits, timeless t-shirts and stylish sneakers. A lot more elevated than most, style their ‘Anagram’ sweatshirt under the LouLou Studio Wool Winter Coat for polished perfection. For more casual, cozy days, Sporty & Rich’s camel tracksuit is simple yet elegant. Look to simple jewels from Missoma for the finishing touches. Like Loewe, Gucci is also synonymous with sporty style through collaborations with Adidas, The North Face, etc. Its cable knit crew neck is a twisted version of the classic varsity style. Continue to elevate with Agolde’s leather pants and a pair of Gucci loafers with soles.

Athleisure has yet to stop dominating the fashion world – and we’re here for it. Below are 8 sporty outfits that strike the perfect balance of style and sport.


A lot more elevated than most, make the Loewe ‘Anagram’ sweatpants the centerpiece of all your sporty outfits. For polished perfection, layer with the LouLou Studio Cashmere Blend Coat. In terms of accessories, the Adidas Originals ‘Forum 84’ sneaker includes the brand’s signature three stripes in bright orange. To match, carry the Loewe ‘Puzzle’ shoulder bag.

When it comes to the sports arena, no one does it better (or has done it longer) than Adidas. In step with trends are the brand’s velor tracksuits with yellow details. Make up for the vibrancy by pairing the Les Tien minimalist hoodie over the top. And for added elevation, let the Frankie Shop camel be the final touch. To complete the look, The Row’s ‘Bare’ sandals in yellow will do the trick.

Luxury Letterman

Saint Laurent’s ‘Teddy’ varsity jacket takes on the classic letterman with total style. Keep it casual underneath with a simple white t-shirt and wide jeans. For added height, complete the look with Khaite’s ‘Lorimer’ studded loafers and an equally extravagant Alaia moon bag.

The Collegiate Cable-Knit

With a significant collaboration with Adidas, Gucci is asserting its name in leisurewear. Take, for example, this bright yellow knitted turtleneck sweater. It’s a twisted take on classic college style—but even better. Keep it classy and style it with Agolde’s mix of leather and loafer loafers, also from Gucci. The Row ‘Sporty’ backpack is the ultimate gym bag.

The Fleece Find

A fleece jacket, like this one from Tory Sport, is similar in style to a traditional tracksuit, but designed to keep you cozy and comfortable on brisk winter days. Continue the relaxed style and combine with the Reformation dark green cargo pants. For perfect white sneakers, this pair from The Row caught our eye. Fashion accessories thanks to Bottega Veneta also attract attention.

New Take Tank

Like their classic white tank, we can assume this Loewe red tank will have an equally limited shelf life – so get yours while you still can. The color is a welcome change, especially paired with Altuzarra’s denim midi skirt and Courréges’ vinyl jacket. Ganni Chelsea boots with sole will brighten up the look.

Colorful puffer

A bold puffer is a must-have in any winter wardrobe, and The North Face’s ‘Neptuse’ jacket from 1996 has the model and street style stamp of approval. Keep it cool and casual underneath with a pair of flowing tights from Splits59. Meanwhile, adidas ‘Gazelle’ sneakers in baby blue tie the whole look together.
