Trends come and go and we are quite happy that Sporty Chic is sticking around this spring! From Alexander Wang, who always has a penchant for this style, to other designers like Stella McCartney and Balenciaga, this look has been seen on numerous runways. The awesome thing about this trend is that it is comfortable yet crazy, sexy, cool (did we show our age with this one?). In addition to its versatility, it’s also a trend that can easily be adapted for all body types. Case in point: here is how we styled it!
Sweatshirt dresses are the best. They can be dressed up, dressed down and comfortable. This particular one is by Adidas.
Now, my long legged friends will agree that sweatshirt dresses can sometime become indecent real quick! Hence, my little DIY project. In order to extend the hemline, I purchased a row of lace and sowed it to the bottom of the dress. I love the added detailing and it makes this short dress more palatable.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to show my gams, but it’s all about keeping it tasteful. To further extend these said gams (because, why not!), I wore my dress with my trusty blue pumps. I further accessorized with this statement necklace, simple earrings and bracelet and a silver clutch.
For the curvy ladies out there, I found a dress option for you: Ebay
I love this sporty chic look. It’s clean, minimal and well…..just plain chic. This looks is a departure for me since my style is a little more “glammy” but that is what’s so fun about fashion-experimenting with new to you looks and trends.
The launch pad for this outfit was the jog pant material blazer. It’s super comfortable but still makes me feel pulled together. I paired my jacket with what I call my “racing stripe” pants. Again, comfiness was the watch word here and these pants fit the bill.
I finished the look with my Puma sneakers and bag. Voila sporty chic at its best!
For me, Sporty Chic is about wearing something comfy but at the same time still looking cute and effortless.
I usually save my sporty chic attire for the weekend when I’m running around doing errands. I love my heels and dresses, but even a girly girl like me can settle for some leggings, sneakers and, of course, a nice bright lipstick!
For my tall sisters I found a great coat option for you: H&M
Just call me “Sporty Spice” because despite the hair, handbag and heels, I am ready to work out! My exercise of choice: pounding the big city pavement in search of those must have fashion finds. This look is my nod to active wear with a dash of sugar, spice and everything nice to kick it up a notch or two!
Longing for expensive fashion pieces appears to be my lot in life. But every now and then I find I’m able to achieve my objective! Case in point, these two-toned joggers from BCBG were an item I pined after for some time. While I knew they’d never see the inside of a gym, I also knew they’d look marvellous as I strut my way down Queen West or sauntered through Yorkville! I feel my heart racing already!
To complete my look I paired it with this cool loose fitting crop that shows off a little skin, and a leather moto jacket that adds a bit of toughness. The black and white pumps add a touch of femininity to the look, and since I think every outfit needs a little bling, I just had to rock this silver metallic handbag!
Toronto, New York, London; wherever the shopping is to be found in the world, I’m definitely ready to work out the only way I know how in this chic sporty look!
That’s all for now folks. Till next time!
How do you like to rock your sporty chic look?
