Grand news… Russell Athletic is in South Africa! Sport Luxe is hugely on trend and even if you don’t play sport or exercise regularly, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be enjoying the latest fashions.
For those who don’t know the brand, it’s an American brand founded in 1902 by Benjamin Russell. It produced uniforms for a wide range of sports, such as American Football, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball. It also focuses on Universities, minor leagues and of course, the public.
I absolutely adore the quality of the clothes. The fabric is amazing and you can feel how high quality it is. It feels like it’s constantly giving you a wonderful hug when you wear it.
What I’m loving about the sports luxe trend is that you can now wear your sports gear out and not just when you’re wanting to exercise. You can also mix and match pieces with your everyday clothes too. If you want to wear comfy tracksuit pants with a fitted tee-shirt, high top trainers (even a pair of heels) and a denim jacket, or be head to toe in tracksuit pants and a hoodie, either way you will look ultra chic.
I decided to showcase some of the Russell Athletic clothing I absolutely adore and kept it quite sporty today.
These tracksuit pants are called the Arch Logo Cuffed pants and are wonderfully comfortable. I love the cuffed look at the ankle where I can either pull them up into a mid calf, capri look (photographed below) or keep them long.
I teamed them with my watermelon/coral Rosette Zip Hoodie, which is just like wearing a hug. If I could live in this I probably would.
In Winter I lived in this jacket. If there is one jacket everyone needs, it’s this one. This jacket is like wearing a permanent electric blanket. It’s super toasty, without becoming too uncomfortably hot, has a snug hood, is a great wind breaker and complemented every outfit.
I’ve been thrilled to pull out my summer Roll-up Short Russell Athletic appliqué shorts in the coral colour.
Russell Athletic has a wonderful range for men and women – everything from tee-shirts, long sleeve tee shirts, shorts, track pants, hoodies, knits and jackets.
I’ve made it a little easier for you… All of the items listed above have a link on their names that take you straight to the online store.
