Lacoste appears to be one of the coolest sports brands for spring, after its gym bags have been cited as accessories that look stylish in and outside of the gym.

Vain Style said Lacoste's bright-coloured "gymless gym bags" have proven their worth for men who want to carry their personal belongings in an on-trend bag.

Its "stylish" gym bags help to meet the lifestyle needs of men, while allowing them to express their personal fashion tastes.

"The growing trend of both men and women using gym bags as an everyday accessory has made labels and design houses revisit and reinvent traditional designs of a duffle," the online publication noted.

And men in need of style inspiration when it comes to effortlessly pulling off the sportswear look may want to turn to Lacoste-sponsored Andy Roddick, who chooses the brand as his choice of tennis wear.

Males who don't want to look as though they have tried too hard may want to team a Lacoste white polo shirt up with jeans and Lacoste Marcel Twist trainers to make sure their sportswear look doesn't appear as though it should be kept on the treadmill.
