Sports Luxe, by definition, is a mixture of sporty and luxurious garments. What it gives you is extreme comfort coupled with a look for a night on the tiles. Or a night in on the sofa, cuddled up under a blanket with hot chocolate and a book/ movie/ binge-watching sesh.
Gosh, this style can even take you hiking/ tree climbing/ ball kicking/ all other kinds of being active.
Sports Luxe is versatility at its most supreme.
It’s even more versatile when you have a pattern in your stash that allows you to customise a pair of trousers for a range of looks with both woven AND knit fabrics.
The Celine Trousers are the ultimate pattern for sports luxe you can dress up or down. Loose fitting and comfy, with elasticated cuffs or plain hems, and an optional side trim and draw cord, your final look comes down to the fabric you choose.
A delicious knit is the obvious choice for lounge wear, pjs, and sports gear. Add a cool trim for even more emphasis on the athleisure vibe.
And then we have the wovens! The things you can do with the wovens! A light and airy rayon challis, for example, is how you get the breeziest summer trousers to throw on after a day in the sun. Something more structured like a thicker cotton or suiting, with a hemmed cuff and you have smart trousers that are comfy and flattering. Make them in something bedazzled for the sparkliest party pants this side of the sun!
Then when you bring the trims into it, the Celines get knocked into outer space with their super cool versatility… reflective strips for joggers, pom poms for just because, faux leather for biker chic, plus so many other ideas!
THE pair, however, that are screaming to be made (just in time for the December festivities) is black wovens, hemmed cuff with no elastic, possibly hacked to have inseam pockets (using this FREE tutorial, obviously), and the juiciest stripe of black sequins down each leg for the comfiest pair of fancy tuxedo-style trousers ever.
The Celine is the most versatile pattern you will ever own!
