It’s easy to see how the athleisure fashion trend has stayed so long in the spotlight, given it’s the off-duty wardrobe go-to for the hottest young supermodels in the world right now. (Think Gigi and Bella, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, et al).
No surprise then that the hottest jacket and winter top looks this season take a leaf from the sporting handbook. So toss aside your tuxedo jacket because these five sports luxe cover-ups are as on-trend cool as they are comfortable for winter 2018.

You can do no wrong when you think pink. The colour is a staple shade for cosying in this winter and looks cute to boot. Adding a cropped silhouette to your hoodie it gives an edgy and leg-lengthening element, making it an easy go-to look for in (and out of) the house.

Retro is back with a bang and this ’80s vibe windbreaker is topping our list. No longer purely the stuff of rappers and running fanatics, this coat style has transitioned back to the street style mainstream. Just ask Kendall Jenner. The light-weight jacket is a well-suited covering for the change of seasons and keeping cosy in the early stages of winter. Pair with a pencil skirt and heels if you dare.

Quilted jackets are a classic sports luxe must-have and currently a major hit with fashion editors, celebrities and style influencers alike. Consider it the current It-girl coat to pair with any look. Keep it bomber cropped with an elasticated cuff to avoid falling into daggy dad territory.

Here’s another ’80s-inspired comfy, lightweight alternative to a denim jacket that has quickly become a celebrity fave. Perfect for winter-evening dashes to the supermarket, crisp morning walks and nailing the daily grind, it’s another invaluable item to have on hand. Bella Hadid wears several on rotation right now, usually with the matching track pants. We bow down.

If the bomber jacket had a baby, this vest would be it. Long considered a winter layering-staple, the puffer vest is an easy and unrestricted way to keep warm. The trick to making it current though is the metallic sheen. Make sure yours is fitted with statement quilting to add an extra fashion edge.
