Last week I was asked by John Lewis to style a few pieces from their Sports Luxe edit in my own way. I wouldn’t usually say sporty looks are my thing, but I love the challenge of mixing things up a little whilst still staying true to my own style, often finding new styles, shapes & pieces to love in the process. Besides, the edit is much more focused on the luxe side of things mixing relaxed, sports inspired silhouettes and details with beautiful fabrics & geometric paneling, and that is definitely my kinda thing!

I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous silk crepe skirt, the fitted shape & the stripe of a zip running all the way down give the slightest hint at the trend, without being too obvious and I knew it would work perfectly with this paneled cami that’s been sitting unworn in my wardrobe for weeks now.

I did consider a backpack or trainers to go with this, to make it a little more sporty, but decided that for me it would have been overkill & went with a more subtle take on it. I chose this buttery leather tote instead, a luxe take on a super practical item, it’s been getting a lot of use recently & to be honest, I’m not quite sure how I lived without it!

    This outfit is incredibly stunning, I love how you’ve reinterpreted the items and created an incredibly sophisticated look out of ‘sporty’ items. You look beautiful!

    Really like your look! It’s a little bit different, but still very you. That tote-bag is awesome by the way, love the silver one on the website too <3

    I love how this little number looks like a dress. That top is totally sexy, love the mesh paneling. I think sneakers would have looked good with this look but it would be better without the tights (I sometimes feel like tights and sneakers looks like an office woman heading to work), but I love that you kept true to how you feel and paired it with your wedges.

    i’m feeling that edit, but my wallet not so much, my fabric came yesterday, and i guess that’s like our version of clothing christmas (some assembly required)

    Great partnership, I have to say that top looks amazing on you and very sexy the mesh gives a minimal but yet neck plunge. I hope you had a great easter holiday xx

    I love how the panel on your top and the zip on the skirt really give off that sports luxe vibe, but without it being too in your face. I’m glad you chose this bag over a backpack, it’s gorgeous! A leather tote bag is definitely an essential, they’re so useful for throwing everything into. I think this look really suits you Steph! xxx

    ah that panel cami is great – just sexy enough with that low v panel! i have a similar bag from cuyana and it’s definitely one of my most used ones!
