So i have been out and about on the high street this weekend looking for what next to add to my spring wardrobe and i notice some kind of sport wear craze.

Sportswear seems to be steeling the fashion scene of recent, from draw string trousers and skirts to stylish jogging bottoms and the wedged trainers. It seems the London Olympics in 2012 has inspired designers and stylist to incorporate elements of sportswear in the various collections.

Sweat Shirts

Sweat shirts are something that have been around for quite a long time, but they used to serve the purpose of sportswear, uniforms and maybe even home slacks for some people. Only in recent years have they become trendy pieces. From printed statements, cropped to graphic print, sweat shirts are quite versatile and can be worn with skirts, printed trousers or even dungarees depending on your desired look.

Jogging Bottoms

For those lazy I'm not bothered days, jogging bottoms are always the way to go for a dressed down casual look, the only difference is this spring/summer can dressed up with a half tucked shirt or tee, a statement necklace and some stylish heels. For an updated take on the trend go for printed pair or for added edge indulge in a fur leather pair.

Wedge Trainers

This season wedge trainers are creeping up all over the place, the wedge trainer phenomenon is clearly making its mark within the fashion set. After all, who wouldn't like the comfort of a sneaker with a hidden high heel? Weather its high end or high street every sporty chic needs one of these. Here are my picks
