Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not the sportiest person. If you’re like me creating a sporty chic look may seem like a daunting task – but it’s not. This look can be successfully executed by combining pieces that are sporty and chic all into one look. Yes, it’s that simple! It’s all about balance and having enough of both elements to create a fab sporty-chic look. You don’t want to overdo it with the sportswear, in order to avoid looking like you’re headed to the gym. If you go for a look that’s too chic, the sporty motif will be lost.
You can get the look by keeping in mind a few tips:
Sports themed tops – A jersey, letterman jacket or baseball/ football style tee are versatile and can be worn with jeans or joggers to create a sporty chic ensemble. Wear bottoms that aren’t super fitted or too loose for a relaxed look. Do not reach for the sweatpants. If you seek comfort joggers are the way to go. They are comfortable and casual yet stylish. They are sweatpants’ dressier cousin.
Shoes make the outfit – I like to add a style of shoe that is less sporty. Typically the shoes you choose depend on the other elements of your outfit. Choose a style that is clean and simple. A classic pump, mary janes or simple flat will work for this look. If your overall outfit is sportier then opt for a shoe that is less sporty and vice versa.
Simple hair – When I think of sporty hair I think of ponytails, buns, and French braids. These are all perfect for your sporty chic look. The simpler the hairdo the better.
Top it off with accessories – Accessorizing increases the coolness of your outfit. You can incorporate the same accessories as you would normally with any outfit; but I would steer clear of anything that has a lot of bling or pieces that are gaudy to avoid a look that is too contrived. Other accessories that would work are a tote bag, satchel or a baseball cap. These accessories are simple but still yield a lot of style.
However you choose to wear your sporty chic look, make sure to rock it with a dose of confidence. Confidence is the best accessory you can ever own.
