Why 'fit fashion' is probably the best thing to come out of 2016 so far

Confession: most fashion trends that come and go seem to escape me before I can be bothered to embrace them. No sooner have I managed to purchase the staple garment of the month before it's out of season and out of favour. Like many I tend not to care about or really follow trends in this way, but one particular style is having a moment it's difficult to ignore.

Hit up a celeb fashion website and you won't need more than 10 seconds to work out what's hot right now. Everyone from Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner to Sienna Miller and Kate Hudson has been cashing in on the sports luxe trend. I've been having a field day over on Pinterest, so here's why I love it:

It's easy as hell

A casual, sporty look isn't that hard to pull off - Take your favourite (but clean!) trainers, team with leggings or 'mom' jeans, a baggy tee or a crop top and top off with a trench coat or bomber jacket and your usual handbag. Done. It's a uniform I'm seeing more and more of on the high street. 

You don't have to rock big brands or expensive items to be trendy

There's been some criticism of this trend in so far as it's supposedly off-limits to those who can't afford Stan Smiths or Lulu Lemon yoga pants, but that's just not true! Plain and unbranded garments are not only easier on the bank balance but actually seem so much more chic. With Queen B herself's recently released Ivy Park Topshop range also fairly priced it's never been easier to rock an off-duty look.

Finally a trend that offers comfort

Man am I happy about casual clothing having its day. In a way it's kind of a 90s revival, with baggy fitting pieces and even going bra-free very much the norm at the moment. Bye bye bodycon dresses, see ya later high heels, hello shift dresses and converse!

  1. YAY for casual fashion.. I am loving the whole baggy jeans/t-shirt look... It is so effortless and I really wish it is here to stay (for a while at least!)
