Sportswear underwent a luxe makeover as Prada, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Gucci reinvented this versatile trend in their Spring/Summer 2014 collections. Think satin shorts, liquid lamé track pants and leg warmers contrasted with feminine silhouettes. Models at Chanel and Dior strutted down the runway in embellished sneakers while Balenciaga got playful with tennis skirts and short shorts paired with crop tops. Marni capped off their ensembles with flamboyant visors and DKNY gave a shout-out to the '90s with platform running shoes and low-rise tracks.
