Athletic fashions are met with a hint of glitz and glamour to create one stand-out trend for spring. Track pants, jogging shorts, bomber jackets, racer-back tops… no longer just for the gym!

The sporty-chic style was a major presence on the runways this season, transforming loungewear into high fashion! Dress up the look with luxe fabrics and embellishments. Think sequins, sheers, and sparkle!

You can try out the look with any of these BurdaStyle patterns!

    I really love lean slim women on the catwalk, it shows off the clothes really well, but somehow it looks very funny in “sporty” gear. Same with swimwear.
