Sporty Style 101

Sporty Style 101

*like always, all images are linked to our online shop. 


The sporty fashion style is for the person on the go, they are running errands around town, fitting a workout class in between all the hustle and bustle, and still somehow look great. Not to be confused with actual workout gear, this style sprinkles elements of athletic wear in a look. Think about those celebrity coming-out-of-the-gym shots. That is what we are talking about here. 



Graphic tees, sweatshirts, crop tops, and sports bras all will do the trick here. Try a fun workout set, too. This way you get a whole chic fit that can also be separated to get more bang for your buck.

You can always stick to the classics: sweatpants, joggers, and leggings. But I have seen tennis skirts pop up almost everywhere lately, and I’m here for it. Biker shorts are also a cute way to add some color or pattern to a look. 



It’s all about the layers! A cute windbreaker can transform a whole outfit. Puffer vests are also another key way to look more sporty chic, just make sure it isn’t too puffy.

When you don’t know what the day will bring, throw on a cute pair of sneakers, and you’re ready for anything. And honestly, a good pair of white trainers go with everything. Another sporty option are some hiking/walking sandals like Tevas.

The secret key to any outfit, the final last touches. Backpacks and cross-body bags reign supreme here since they allow you to be hands free. Another small detail I see often is the use of long socks. And when in doubt, throw on a baseball cap. 


The sporty style is all about comfort and practicality, so you want to think about that when you are putting your outfit together. Have fun, mix and match colors and patterns, and you’ll be ready for whatever the day may throw at you.

Till next time,
