SPORT-LUXE STYLE | State of Origin: Actual sports vs. Fashion sports

I hope the use of state of origin in the title didn’t deter you from clicking on this blog post. We had our first sports journalism lecture today at school. We were asked about our interest in sport. Is it a lot? A little? None at all? Well, to answer this question properly I think it should have been asked more specifically. Playing sports? No. Watching sports? Definitely no. Dressing as if I know everything about sports? Sure!

Has anyone else noticed the recent catapult of “sportswear” into fashion magazines, blogs, and runways? If I wasn’t a sports fan before, I definitely am now. Varsity jackets, sport-luxe sneakers, jersey dresses. I have to be careful with this one though in case I pick a team that… well, sucks. I don’t want to be sending the wrong message.

Or I could go for a Reebok by Celine jersey dress like the girl in the photo. I bet that dress costs well into the triple (if not more) digits. And to think, our lecturer was surprised sports fans pay $190 for a jersey in support of their teams. Please.
