Sportswear isn't necessarily sweat shirts and couch-potato slacks, it is a refined category of high fashion garments that are comfortable as well as stylish. Sportswear was initially introduced to accommodate the fast-paced American woman's lifestyle. If we go right back to the beginning, sportswear was used for informal, changeable garments such as tops, trousers and shorts, typically worn to spectator sports. Since then, the term sportswear has been used to describe many garments from day wear to evening wear that have an active signature to their look. Sportswear comes in a range of formality and can still be appropriate for business and social occasions, but the one thing in common, is comfort.

Always a key print in womenswear fashion, floral has had a huge impact on Menswear fashion for Spring/Summer 2014. I might be jumping the gun a bit here, but while it's summery (ish) why not start contemplating the concept of roses and tulips. Designers have been dabbling lightly in the idea for a while now, giving men's fashion a gentle introduction, before diving in head first with their latest collections which were inundated with flower prints.
