The DKNY Resort 2014 collection makes classic sportswear ready for a night on the town. The aptly titled 'Night Sports' collection brings a youthfulness to equestrian-inspired polos and traditional materials like lace by dressing them up with beading, studs and sequins. These touches of glitz help to bring a little sparkle and elegance to the sportswear-inspired looks.

The garments bring together combinations of materials that are as unusual as the pairing of sportswear and glamour is. DKNY plays with this theme of balancing out the two opposites; playing with hard and soft fabrics. One of the most gorgeous pieces from the collection is a shirt with short leather t-shirt sleeves overlayed with full-sleeved lace. Despite "sports" and "glamour" being on opposite ends of the fashion spectrum, it seems they do attract.
