Aemilia Madden

If there's any trend that American women can lay claim to, it's athleisure. After all, leggings, sneakers, and sweatshirts stack up there with apple pie and $1 pizza slices. But we've just learned that you can expect to see our French counterparts putting their own spin on the trend this year.

We're well aware of the obsession many U.S. women have with French-girl style, but it appears that the tables have turned. "French women don't really follow trends," says Evelyne Chétrite, Sandro's founder and artistic director. "However, I feel that this year there is a sportswear chic trend. You can easily add a sportswear element—vintage or technical—to your wardrobe."

Achieving the sportswear-chic trend is all about mixing athletic pieces with more polished counterparts. Style a track jacket with trousers, or pair cool sneakers with a structured dress. Bottom line: It doesn't matter where you're from; sportswear is worthy of a spot in your wardrobe. Read on for some inspiration and shop sporty-cool pieces.

One thing's for sure: Whether you're French or not, this is a trend to try.
