Don’t sweat it - this trend is simple and you don’t have to rock Lycra to embrace it!
The look is simple, incorporating neon colour and futuristic materials inspired by sportswear for a sleek, athletic silhouette. From fashionably flamboyant to more wearable pieces, there are plenty of options to suit all budgets and taste. So get ready for fitness fever…
If you have a boyish figure, opt for a stylish yet sexy bodycon dress with a zip fastening front The flattering contrasting contour panels give the impression of fuller hips whilst the material will slim your waist for an enviable feminine silhouette. The high-neck top will enhance your bust, whilst the navy shade will suit all skin tones and the flash of lime neon is right on trend.
For lucky leggy ladies, the sportswear-inspired tapered trousers will show off your pins to perfection. I love these 3.1 Phillip Lim Tapered Crêpe de Chine Trousers with an elasticated waistband from Nordstorm, as they will add shape to your narrow hips and thighs. Pair with fine, sheer layers, like this gorgeous bomber jacket from Acne, and chunky wedge sandals to create a luxuriously stylish ensemble.

Embrace your curves and opt for a slim-fitted scuba pencil skirt like this one from Topshop. The cream contouring panels will accentuate your narrow waist, flatten your tummy and slim your hips. Finish the look with a woven, sheer neon t-shirt tucked into the skirt, topped with a leather jacket.
If you prefer dresses, this little red number from Zara is sure to get you noticed. The racer-back emulates the sportswear trend perfectly and the clever panels will highlight your bust, whilst slimming your waist and hips for an hourglass shape.
If you are self-conscious of your tummy and don’t feel confident enough to wear a crop top, choose a long neon vest instead. This relaxed, loose-fitting top from New Look will flatter your shape with its floaty, light fabric. The cool fabric is perfect for your holiday wardrobe, as it won’t take up too much space in your suitcase and will look great thrown over a bikini on the beach. Otherwise, dress it up in the evening with shorts, heels and statement jewellery to radiate holiday glamour.
Additionally, this causal two-tone straight-cut t-shirt from Mango will look super sporty with a pair of tapered trousers and white hi-tops for a relaxed daytime outfit.

Complement a slight, petite shape with solid colour blocking to give an elongating effect. Add extra inches by accessorising with some towering wedges. Mini bodycon dresses in solid colours look so feminine on a petite frame. The black colour-block panelled bodycon dress gives a nod to the sport luxe trend, whilst being an instant figure-flatterer.
Check out these sky-high neon and print wedges by Jeffrey Campbell that are guaranteed to get you noticed. They will look great with trousers, shorts or dresses.
Alternatively, if you prefer to wear flat shoes then opt for these eye-catching, metallic hi-tops from Adidas that have been hugely popular and are an excellent way to easily style an outfit.

Finally, I love these ASOS Leather Knicker Shorts with Airtex Panels, which are great for those who have fabulous legs to flash.
Pair the shorts with a simple black or grey racer-back vest top and high heeled hi-tops like these San Bowie Wedge Trainers from Ash Opt for a more feminine take on the trend with this sporty texturised skirt from Warehouse. The drawstring waist will flatter your tummy and hips and the skirt will look perfect combined with a slouchy vest top and sporty shades.
