Free People Capitalizes on Athleisure with Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

Is the athleisure trend ever going to stop? As far as we know, the answer is no! Free People has just capitalized on what could be dubbed as the athleisure movement, with a brand new fall 2016 line-up entitled as the ‘Good Sport’ collection that is already available for purchase at FreePeople.com.

With more than 40 different styles that could be easily flaunted at any occasion, Free People’s Good Sport collection features go-to items especially for the pre-fall transitional season. That said, get ready for tons of cozy garments, warm colors and small details that are absolutely adorable.

As for the line-up’s main influences, aside from athleisure, most of the ensembles could be linked to Gucci’s iconic geek style, as well as Prada’s urban-chic attitude, the lines, cuts and silhouettes of which are perfectly in tune with these colder months’ Nineties-inspired vibes.

The most interesting part is, however, how incredibly harmonized the Nineties and late Seventies are throughout the collection, as it was during those decades that a similar, yet more vintage athleisure trend began to grow. That’s why we get comfy sweatpants combined with super-fancy aviator-style sunglasses, or even laced-up hoodies paired with urban-inspired biker ankle boots.

As for the overall color palette, Free People focused on grays, dark greens, burgundy and light-blue shades, leaving it up to the cheerful pops of red ochre and yellow to revamp the entire collection.

Following what is going to be one of fall’s leading trends, Free People will provide you with all the essentials you might need to stay warm, from knit beanies to cute socks. Other appealing accessories include sporty-chic watches, glittery headphones and holographic iPhone cases, which could easily become perfect birthday gifts as well.

Back to the clothing section, Free People’s fall 2016 Good Sport collection is not only perfect for those who love the athleisure trend, but for those who are indeed good at sports too. Besides sweatpants and joggers, the line-up also features super cozy pullovers, such as the Yo Yo Pullover, as well as edgy leggings and sports bras, the refined lines and rich colors of which make them perfect for transitioning from day to night just by adding the right accessory and jacket.

The outerwear section, which varies from coats to hoodies, features two of the collection’s must-haves: the Sedwick Peacot and the Nicholas K Farley Trench. Both are wintery and a perfect transitional season investment accordingly, and will please those who love clean-cut silhouettes, as well as those who prefer structured, airy figures.

Other It-items include the Loud and Proud mini dress with a plunging-V neckline and contrasting hems (which is the result of the perfect mixture of the Preppy and the grunge Nineties styles), and the sensual Nothing But Net bralette, which those who are truly fond of the Nineties could even dare to wear over a plain white t-shirt.

The Free People Good Sport collection is already available at the brand’s, with price tags ranging from below $100 to $200.
