Track Stars: 2017's biggest activewear trend
Whether you were first choice for the relay or last in the discus lineup, this season is all about embracing that sports day style.
From technical staples to relaxed loungewear, this summer’s athleisure is inspired by our favourite retro athletic styles. Expect chunky colour from Reebok, varsity panels from LNDR, stripes galore from Splits59 and matching twin sets from Koral.
Fortunately this trend has been given a luxe makeover to bring it bang up to date, so you can leave those white polo shirts and plimsolls in the locker room. Instead make a play for flattering fabrics and technical comfort that's designed with medals in mind.
In short, PE kit never looked so cool. It’s time to take your marks with these retro track stars.
