We’ve all gone fitness mad! Hitting the gyms and working on their bods to prepare for the (hopefully!) warmer months ahead. Naturally this mantra makes its way into the minds of the fashion savvy and the sports luxe trend comes to life. It was such a massive trend in ’14, seen on the catwalks of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lacoste, Versace and Emilio Pucci that us Motel gals just couldn’t get enough! With designers like Alexander Wang and Jean Pierre Braganza leading the way, the trend is staying put and hitting even harder in 2015. Are you ready?! Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered.
Motel are on top of their game and they’ve got a HAWT new trend coming your way! Sports Deluxe – you’ve got it, the ultimate in sporty chic minus the sweat-fest. Yes please!
With a fierce mix of scuba fabric, bubble textured jersey and sheer mesh, all in monochrome hues with a dash of modern floral, it’s got everything you need for effortless streamlined style.
In these cold January days here at etailPR we like to keep our spirits up by checking out the trends for SS15. Whilst dreaming of the sun we have compiled a selection of two trends that should be big when the sun starts shining.
That 70s Fashion Show
Motel’s SS15 lookbook – available to preview here, shows a collection of 70s inspired dresses, co ords and shirts. Think bold florals in purples, blues, oranges and yellows paired with centre partings and hairbands. Take a look here.
Lauren Pope’s collection for In The Style also looks like it will be taking a nod to the seventies with relaxed palazzo pants and co ordinating jackets. Available here.

The monochrome trend of SS14 revealed the beauty and simplicity of the grid check, and it looks like it isn’t showing any signs of shifting!
Here we have picked out our best choices for grid-patterned garments!
The perfect way to accessorise both a seventies look or a minimalistic grid check is with Orelia’s new collection of temporary metallic tattoos. Whether you’re on a night out, at a festival or on the beach, these tattoos are set to be huge this Spring/Summer and Orelia’s collection is not only affordable but delicate and beautiful! Take a look here.
Laura Whitmore stepped out looking oh-so-on trend in this distinctive sapphire blue Motel jumpsuit this week. Laura accessorised this versatile satin number perfectly with a muted grey clutch and gold bangle at Plan Ireland’s ‘Because I’m a Girl’ ball. The Monarch Jumpsuit from Motel is a total wardrobe staple in this season’s deep blue tone and flattering plunge neck shape. Steal Laura’s party season style with this must-have jumpsuit for £49, available now at Motel.
