On Track

It’s hard work sprinting from frow to frow during Fashion Week, so the fashion posse is lucky that athleisure is this year’s major trend. Sandra Semburg (sandrasemburg.com) snapped the most stylish street outfits to capture how to work the look for high impact.

Whether it’s flats or heels, the idea is to take your inspiration from the track. In Copenhagen, Pernille Rosenkilde’s dangerously red sport pants and slogan tee received a glamour injection from bejeweled scarlet slippers. 
At Paris Fashion Week, it was pointy sling-backs that lent a little luxe to Diletta Bonaiuti’s crimson boiler suit. 
Aiming high, Caro Daur was snapped at New York Fashion Week in black Givenchy track-wear dressed up with platform sliders, while a mystery fashionista accessorized her black track look with a scarlet mini bag. 
Yoyo Cao wore a gray bomber jacket with her purple sweatpants, with side slits that showed off some killer white boots.

There’s only one other thing to remember: break the school rules! Jewelry may have been banned in Physical Education lessons back in your school days, but now it’s all about runway-ready, not ready for a run. Eyewear gets the same treatment: think crystallized and oversized, not streamlined and performance enhanced.

But of course the exception always proves the rule, naturally. We simply had to give a shout-out to the fresh-faced Olga Karput, who was practically perfect in unadorned trainers, tracksuit and trench combo. Game over!
