Athletic influences have been making their way into the fashion space for a few seasons, but spring 2014 marks the absolute apex of gym gear going haute. The runways were awash in drawstring pants, mesh tanks, bomber jackets and baseball hats, and the typically-done-up editor crowd is feeling the streetwise vibe. “The fashion industry is embracing its more casual, comfortable side, but in a chic and practical way,” Glamour’s Nikki Ogunnaike says, “so any woman can get in on the action.” Take a cue from her cool look, then shop the sale below to take your style game to the next level.
