If there’s a reality of sports luxe as a fashion trend, it’s that it works best when the body matches the aesthetic. Enter Steph Smith, that blonde, bronzed, glowingly-healthy Australian babe who launches a thousand #fitspo hashtags on a daily basis. Photographed by Emily Abay in an American Football inspired shoot titled First Down, she’ll not only have you saving up ideas for how to style those sports socks, leather jackets and jersey skirts – she’ll have you reconsidering on letting that gym membership lapse as well.
Stylist Elaine Marshall mixes it up between sophisticated separates, slick bikinis and sensual lingerie for a clash of styles that’s as invigorating as it is timely. Hair and makeup artist Kate Fletcher brings glowing bronzed skin and wet look hair, adding an extra dose of sports influence into every outfit.
