I love it when the fashion world melds style with comfort.
The past few seasons, we’ve seen a return to the idea of “sporty chic.” From stylish sneakers to neoprene, mesh, perforation, pleats and leather accents — it’s all about athletics. That’s why I was so excited to try out some of Le Tigre’s coolest new selections. Classic polos, tennis dresses, crisp shirts and more, the brand is Hamptons fabulous, just in time for spring.
My boyfriend Parker and I had a fab time checking out the spring collection, and settled on coordinating outfits of blue and white. Parker’s look is classic with a modern twist, thanks to a slimmer silhouette and nautical inspirations. Paired with Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes, it’s a winning look.
I first feel in love with the tennis dress after watching Gwyneth Paltrow’s amazing performance in “The Royal Tenenbaums.” Her coal-rimmed eyes, oversized fur coat and fierce bob gave a haunting quality to her otherwise athletic look. A few years ago, I gave the look a try on Halloween. It’s still one of my favorite costumes.
For spring, I styled my Le Tigre tennis dress with a contrasting belt, simple yet glam jewelry, oversized sunglasses, a mini carryall and a crisp striped trench coat.
