With the fashion world's sportswear revival in full effect, these jersey-inspired styles embody an effortlessly cool aesthetic. When referencing this movement, one can think of many low and high-end labels but none jumps out as much as French fashion house Givenchy.

After gaining popularity among rappers with an affinity for fashion, designer Riccardo Tisci's definition of urban luxury inspired an entire movement that is constantly evolving. The designer's sportswear inspiration transformed Givenchy from couture dressmaker to luxe streetwear favourite, a bold move that inspired a multitude of other brands with a similar vision.

From football uniform casuals to baseball-themed businesswear, these jersey-inspired styles marry aesthetics with comfort. Inspired by the iconography of sportswear and athletic uniforms, these looks reference an unexpected inspiration and make sportswear every-day appropriate.
