Clever Couture: Sportmax from catwalk to high street
Published 06/08/2010 | 05:00
Marl grey has proven very popular over the past few months. Everyone from Alexander Wang with his sweats and knee-high socks to Guy Laroche with his draped jersey dresses have been enjoying a love affair with this flecked shade of silvery slate. Its most complementary allies are shades of tan or creamy neutrals.
Seen here at Sportmax, the humble hoody is cleverly combined with elegantly tailored shorts giving the look a nifty twist. This high street hoody from Topman is available from size 'xxs' so is nicely accessible for the girls, or American Apparel also have a great selection.
The right accessories are crucial, with lace-up peep-toe boots, ankle socks and a casual satchel giving a chic urban look. Sportmax's use of lemon laces adds a pop of colour, not unlike those on offer at Office, Schuh or Buffalo.
