Sportswear got sexy! With an americanization of fashion, and an urban street gang influence, Chicks Dig Kicks brings a colourful, and flirty take on sportswear, with lots of attitude thrown in for that extra edge.

Playful Urban Casual attitude Street brazen

With the rise in sport technology, and a rap music influence, sports wear for women has become sexier than ever. Fitness aware, with a high amount of attitude, this trend accentuates the female form through leotards and tanks. Colours are bold and bright, caps are high, and showing a bit of skin is a must.

KEY PIECES Tight tanks, and bikinis are worn alongside lame skirts and skin-tight trousers. Baseball inspired jackets worn oversized, and thickened jersey hoodies in rainbow colours are added to give a street vibe, and make the trend cool. Shiny high-top sneakers and pumps complete the look, with sporty stockings for a more modern tale on a rather eighties look. Acessorize with chunky possibly gold jewellry.

From optical illusions, to 3D designs, this trend aims to play on visuals, and bring a new and exciting outlook on fashion. Surreal looking patterns and swirling colour charts are key in this innovative and modernised trend. The onlooker should be made to do a double take with this one.
