Happy Monday, Fashionistas/os!
Like menswear, sportswear is a rapidly growing sector in the fashion industry and a number of its trends are being incorporated into womenswear, creating an masculine edge and feminine contrast in many designer ready-to-wear collections. Certain aspects of sportswear have been seen all over women on the runways all over, from Hervé Leger by Max Azria baseball caps to Ruffian sneakers paired with feminine pastel dresses. Personally, I adore girls who can pull off a sporty look while still keeping it playful and fitting to her individual style. This Fashionista is a prime example!
The base of this Fashionista’s outfit is what gives off the most sporty and tomboy look. This Fashionista paired a basic cotton raglan T-shirt with a pair of skinny dark jeans. What makes the combination so alluring is the strong destinction between black, bright white and the accent of charcoal grey – very Alexander Wang inspired! These three colors are top trends occurring today and are timeless and fitting for any outfit or occasion.
This Fashionista’s accessories are what add delicate spunk and personality to complete her outfit. At the top, she rocks a backwards men’s OBEY tribal print hat with colors that accompany her Hawaiian print Vans sneakers perfectly. The colors of blues and reds and the prints in her cap and sneakers warm the outfit up for summertime and create exciting pops of accents throughout her entire outfit. It is obvious that this Fashionista nailed her look from head to toe – literally!
Now, if you’re feeling like Sporty Spice, yet want to add a little more Posh Spice to your look, the goal should be to change just one piece. Trade out your pair of jeans for a short leather skirt or replace your pair of sneakers for a pair of bold lace-up heeled boots. By keeping the baseball cap and basic T-shirt and alternating in a more sophisticated accessory or bottoms, you Fashionistas will create an effortless look of feminine rock and sporty chic.
