STYLE GURU STYLE: Sporty-Chic

What is more fun than being stylish and comfortable, all at the same time? It is especially important this summer to be comfy in this extremely hot and humid weather. Sporty chic is a fantastic way to bring a new style that gives you the comfort you need with looking extra fabulous.

This season I was inspired by the sporty trend that has constantly been seen throughout runway shows. Alexander Wang’s spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection was one of my favorites. His use of color and silhouettes were so flattering, able to give off a style that was sporty chic. Choosing my outfit wisely I tried to focus on the main aspects that the collection carried. To begin with my top, I chose a cropped lace shirt with a high neckline and short sleeves because these features were showcased in several garments of Wang’s collection. I also caught my eye on a lot of stripes that many pieces had which is why I chose a shirt with a neckline that gave an accent of stripes. My use of the lace in my shirt was to substitute the various different ways Wang used neoprene fishnet in some of his garments. To keep the sporty look, I wore a denim colored jogger skirt and light blue Vans. In Wang’s collection he used a lot of classic and primary colors, but the different shades he used made it fun. Although I only wore black, blue and white, the brightness in my sneakers brought out some of the lightness that the darker colors were lacking.

Sneakers have been shown walking down the runway quite often this season and it looks like it is going to be a fun trend this summer to wear with almost anything. How can you go wrong with shoes that make you trendy, but also comfort your feet? No pain, but a lot of Fashionista gain!

To keep my details simple I wore a silver watch with a white face, black sunglasses and a cross body bag with weave detailing. Although this may seem like a lot of accessories they were very simplistic. These accessories helped dress up a sporty look into chic with classic add on pieces. Try out a new style by making your own twist on sporty-chic!
