I almost always prefer a floral to anything that resembles an athletic activity or the term “sporty.” But after seeing the always timeless Karla Deras, rocking a nike sweatshirt with a skin tight midi length black skirt, my opinion completely changed. I have since been inspired by all the looks shown above. I adore the sporty shorts paired with a black blouse and heels with pops of neon. A combo I never thought would look so chic.The metallic puffer with flats and jeans exudes class with a black turtleneck and chanel bag.
My favorite set is the neon dress with an athletic grey coat. Trendy sneakers have been spotted with everything from glittery sequins to girly prints. It lends an effortless cool vibe to any outfit and an added level of comfort. Another one of my favorite bloggers is Julie at Sincerely, Jules. She has the sporty style down pat. You can try pairing tribal blouses with torn blue jean shorts and Marant sneakers, like Julie’s, for a unique spin on the look. She piles on the accessories keeping the look from becoming stale. You can try wearing a baseball T-shirt layered with a parka and white jeans. Add heels or opt for tennis shoes.
There are so many options when you probably have most of these items in your closet. This style can be translated to your beauty regime as well. Keep the makeup neutral with a tinted moisturizer and light lip gloss. Put hair in a messy bun or a side braid. This trend gives way to so many options. So embrace your sporty side and play dress up with your gym clothes.
