Let's Hear it for the Boys

When it comes to styles, people are inspired to dress like the people they look up to or aspire to be. For many guys who follow sports, they tend to dress more sporty. I’ve narrowed down to sporty to two style categories: summer sporty and athletic sporty. Is there a difference, you ask? You bet there is!

You will see an athletic sporty guy decked out in an all sports gear outfit. It’ll look like he just walked right out of a sports magazine. This style tends to have more label-based pieces such as a pair LeBron James’ sick new sneakers or a pair of Nike athletic shorts.

For the summer sporty style, you will see a flair of sporty, but with more summer elements. This Fashionisto is wearing a great example of a summer sporty look. He has the sport elements with an athletic graphic T-shirt, snapback cap and Nike mid-calf socks, while adding the summer components with reflective sunglasses, camouflage cargo shorts and a pair of Sperry Top-Siders.

The key to a successful summer sporty outfit is all in the accessories. Adding a stylish pair of sunglasses, a hat and a pair of summer shoes can really do the trick. These accessories will also give your outfit some individuality and the room for a versatile sports look.

Hint: For a more summer sporty look, keep it simple and accessorize. Keep the ensemble sporty but with a dash of summer so that you can still not only look good but be comfortable in the warmer temperatures. Go beyond the basic sneakers and jersey!
