Active influences are now so firmly embedded in all kinds of apparel, accessories and footwear that the lines between true active, athleisure and ready-to-wear are blurred. For pre-fall, there are plenty ideas for every category. The polo (or rugby) sweater is key, updated with skewed necklines, snap fronts or knee-to-midi lengths. Other sweaters are boxy and cropped. Sporty stripes turn up at hems, drop shoulders or in mitered formations across the chest. For woven pieces, there are joggers in unexpected colors and quilted pieces of all kinds, including a big puffer scarf, made even more eye-catching with the current penchant for giant graphics.
