ADIDAS ORGINALS: COMFY CORD
By Steven Potter, 14 October 2020
So, how does Delilah feel about being the face of the new drop? “It feels pretty crazy considering adidas is such an iconic brand that I grew up wearing and loving,” she says. And she was the ideal candidate too, seeing as she describes her personal style as “a mixture of chic, comfortable, colourful, fun and sophisticated” – which, in case you haven’t noticed yet, pretty much sums up this collection.
For throwback style, it doesn’t get better than a full tracksuit – apart from when it’s a cord tracksuit, of course (as proven by Delilah above) 😍 This golden-yellow masterpiece is probably the most autumnal thing we’ve ever seen. Snuggly, soft, comfy; it’s like a warming pumpkin-spice latte in sartorial form. To give this low-key look a high-key edge, Delilah gave us some key styling tips. “Every time I put together an outfit I’m thinking about things like: is the jewellery I’m wearing matching the buttons on my outfit, or is gold jewellery better for the colour I’m wearing.” Well, we can all officially agree that those gold-toned extras are the perfect accompaniment for this get-up 👏👏
Cute in cord? You bet. Especially with this dress-and-stripey-top combo. We’re talking the perf everyday dress, ideally paired with long-sleeve tops, lightweight knits or graphic tees. You can then finish off the look with Delilah’s fave trainers. “My favourite adidas styles are the Superstars. I used to be all about the Stan Smiths, but the Superstars are the OG style for me. I even have some baby pics of me wearing a pair of cute Superstars with link pink 3-Stripes” Ok, @lisarinna (Delilah’s mom and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), hand over the pics – we NEED to see them! 👶
Who knew sportswear and tailoring could work so well together?! We’re obviously living for this suit (we’re already imagining the gasps of admiration during our next office video call). And, it turns out, it’s a highlight of the drop for Delilah, too. “I love the black and salmon-coloured suits because they are both so easy to dress up or down” she says. When it comes to shoes, swap between your adi kicks and heels, depending on the vibe of the day/occasion.
