When we think fashion, sports aren't usually the next thing on our minds. But this season, it got a little closer. We're not talking jerseys and knee pads—fashion’s version of sportswear is a little less I’m-going-to-run-five-miles and a little more I’m-going-to-five-fashion-shows. I’ve never been a tomboy or super into sports, but even I can appreciate the sporty-chic style that walked down the runways of Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, DKNY, Rag & Bone, and more. Get your head in the game and work these fashionable, sport-inspired pieces into your wardrobe!
Similar to color-blocking, these tees with contrasting sleeves are the easiest way to sport (pun intended) this trend. You have a wide range of options—stripes, solids, graphics, prints, neutral colors, bright colors, neons, and more. Dress up your baseball tee with a full skirt or tailored shorts, or keep it casual with a pair of denim shorts and flat sandals.
You won't need to do any running in these chic wedge sneakers. We love the pairs with stylish details like metallic hues, floral panels, and cool color-blocking. Slip them on with printed skinny jeans or a pleated skirt instead of your usual ballet flats—they make more of a statement. You can also wear them with leather or faux leather pants this fall!
These varsity jackets may be reminiscent of high school days but you definitely won’t run the risk of looking like you’re roaming the halls during passing period. Wear your varsity jacket over a flirty dress or patterned skinny jeans—combining styles like this looks expertly high fashion and that’s what the sporty trend is all about.
The cut of these stylish track pants perfectly lend themselves to being paired with sexy pumps and strappy sandals. They can get pretty dressy, too. Try the sequin or silk pair with a soft black top and black ankle strap sandals for your next dinner date.
Scuba-inspired, wetsuit-inspired—whatever you call it, a sleek neoprene dress can be more formal than you probably think. The material hugs your curves, but it’s slightly thicker and can be more flattering than a typical body-con dress. Wear one to a cocktail party with strappy sandals and a minaudiere.
These aren't your dad's old baseball caps—the fashion crowd has stepped up the style with embellishments, prints, leather, and more. Whether you’re making a sporty style statement or covering up a bad hair day, no one will ever know.
With prints, embellishments, and thick, contrasting trims, these track shorts are a far cry from that worn out pair of Nike running shorts stuffed in your gym bag. These cute track shorts deserve to be dressed up. Pair them with a chambray shirt or summer sweater for effortlessly chic weekend style.
