Sport-inspired fashion is on the up. From mesh fabric to racer-back vests and leather-trim sweatshirts, not to mention Marni's contentious swimming cap headgear.

This is not a look you want to work head to toe: it's all in the detail.

It's about taking one or two sporty elements and either giving it a futuristic twist as shown at Balenciaga or dressing it down with a street-wise edge as seen at Isabel Marant.

From her rugby-striped dresses and marl grey hoodies, Marant paired everything with heels, windswept surfer girl hair and nude make-up.

She also prettified her silk baseball jacket with floral embroidery. This Topshop version may be more traditional in style, but you can easily add a feminine edge by incorporating this rose corsage to your look.
