Wimbledon is just around the corner, the prestigious sporting tournament that’s well known for some serious sports luxe style, strawberries and cream, celebrity spectators…oh, and the tennis! In honour of the legendary sporting event, we are serving you 10 of our most sprightly athleisure-inspired styles that will ensure the ball is left in your court this summer.
The white tennis dress is iconic - every year Wimbledon players bring reimagined and even cooler versions of last year’s look onto the court. Luckily for us, you don’t need a racket in order to own this look. Up your game with a sporty but sassy knitted version in a flattering skater style and match with some barely there heels for a look that’s going to gain you major style points.
Hoodies aren’t exactly the most inspiring pieces in our wardrobe- but with a little imagination the humble hoodie doesn't have to be reserved for the gym. Opt for a sumptuous fabric and bold pattern for a sports luxe look that is effortlessly glam. Let this version, with a animal print lining transition your look from off-duty to on-court.
When fashion and sport collide it means that we can finally be comfortable and chic all at the same time (finally!). Nothing screams athleisure more than a drawstring waist and contrast stripe - these trousers combine these features with a fashion forward flare ensuring you are going to be laps ahead of the fashion pack this season.
Basics don’t have to be basic, you can add a sporty spice feel to any look by choosing staples in contrasting colours to really show off your athletic edge. Pair this ribbed style with a fresh white mini skirt and easy breezy sliders for an effortless look that’s worthy of all your weekend activities.
Midi skirts are a staple in every fashionistas wardrobe, they are perfect for work and play. If you want to stand out from the fashion crowd this season, choose a midi that has two things, a pleat and a stripe. The drawstring waist and sky blue hue provide a winning streak, so stay sporty and sassy by pairing this version with a statement earring and white trainer.
Sweatshirts are usually favoured for Sunday slouching, however the simple shape has been reimagined and is now more suitable for your Saturday schmoozing. Opt for a sweatshirt in a dramatic silhouette and bold colour and layer over your fave midi to really get some pulses racing.
Summer is the season of the bomber jacket - easy to wear, lightweight and perfect add on for temperamental temperatures. But the average bomber sometimes needs vamping up a little and here at OTL, we know how to vamp it up. The contrast stitching and oversized shape of this number is ticking all the right boxes and giving us major baseball vibes, pair with some black kick flare jeans and a boot heel for a real home run.
Track pants usually see more of the couch than the track, but this season they have been given a whole new lease of life; the new casual is the trend of the moment, and we are living for it. Choose track pants with a wide leg to stay stylish and pair with some sassy court heels for a winning look.
A co-ord is the ultimate way to keep your look understated yet stylish, and since casual is the new cool, a relaxed track inspired co-ord is definitely the way forward. Choose one in a rich tone with luxe details and pair with barely there heels and a red lip for a look guaranteed to get first place.
Long gone are the days where the bum bag was only favoured by embarrassing dads on holiday- the fashion pack have claimed it as their own and now the bum bag is officially a summer must have. Have fun with this trend by choosing a bold slogan, let everyone know how awesome your style really is.
