07/02/2011 19:18 | Updated 22 May 2015

The mood: Sportswear was given a revamp at the spring/summer shows, with sheer fabrics and graphic prints adding a sleek, streamlined feel to sporty inspired looks.

The must-haves: The addition of zips, mesh inserts, fluorescent trims and panels on mini dresses, shorts and shirts will instantly point towards the sportswear influence without looking like a gym kit in disguise. A figure hugging shift with a racer back, as seen at Versace, proves that sportswear can go glam too.

MyDaily tip: For a laidback take on the trend, opt for a varsity jacket teamed with rolled-up jeans and heels. This was done brilliantly by Isabel Marant.
