A pair of joggers to wear to the office? Yes! These flexible styles from the 11/2017 issue of BurdaStyle magazine transition through a full day and more: The latest trends in fashion with sporty details…


If you are looking for a sporty and feminine combo, then look no further than this fitted shirt! The contrast colors of the shaping panels draw the eye from the shoulder to the hem and flare at the bottom to a mini peplum effect. Reverse the colour order for an even slimmer visual impact.


If you haven’t felt like a dress is right for your adult style, perhaps this cool look will make you feel the opposite. The bodice is sewn in a structured jersey with a lean toward the retro ski pullover – a standing collar and a zippered neckline. The skirt is asymmetric and extra wide to ensure that it doesn’t feel restrictive.


The stirrup trouser is one of the essential ski classics and we are celebrating its grand comeback! Naturally, the classic combination of jersey and side stripe panels are a requirement. Trust this look to get you through (almost) every life situation in style.


“Bye-bye” high heels and gold jewellery. From now on, we are wearing our jumpsuits totally relaxed. This style is sure to win you over with its flat contrast stripe trim along the shoulders and sleeves, patch pockets with flaps and box pleats that gets finished at the waist with a wide self-belt. The middle-front neckline adjusts easily up or down with a covered metal zipper.


The quilting takes some patience, though it is easily done following the instructions. The cool coat is in a bomber style with a snap front and patch pockets that also include the quilted detail.


Radiant panels shape a strong visual effect to draw the eye from the waist to the slightly flared hem with a hint of swing towards the bottom. The exposed edge finishes and the topstitched petersham trim add extra attention to the figure-shaping A-line design. For even more impact, use two different colours of wool fabrics for the panels.


This style is a nod to the traditional waxed canvas anorak, though sewn with a trendy yellow waxed cotton. The XL hood can lay flat against the back and easily pull over the collar with the zippered middle design. The sleeve hems can be adjusted by tabs with snaps and the waist with D-rings.
