I was recently contacted by a reader who asked, “How do I dress sporty without looking like I’m going to the gym?” My first thought was to wonder what a fashionista would consider sporty. T-shirts, jeans, and sneakers? Yoga pants, tanks, and flip-flops? Casual or dressy? Does it cause a flash back to the 90s when the Spice Girls were everywhere spreading their girl power? Who could forget Sporty Spice dancing in a sports bra style top with track pants and sneakers?
No shade to her style, but let’s just say that track pants aren’t always fitting for the occasion.
For fun, I looked up sporty in the dictionary. It said flashy or showy in dress or behavior; casual yet attractively stylish. Couldn’t agree more myself. 😏
Rest assured…you don’t have to look like you’re headed to a burn session on the treadmill. It’s actually quite the opposite. Here are the outfits to prove it:
Wearing sneakers with dresses and skirts is an easy way to take the look from dressy to sporty.
You can root for your team in a sporty style, too! Rock a team sweatshirt or jersey with pieces that are super feminine like stack rings, sunglasses and a cute clutch bag.
A baseball hat does the trick.
As you can see, dressing sporty doesn’t mean you have to look like you actually going to play a sport. It’s more like taking a stylish outfit and putting a casual twist to it. Are you a sporty girl? Which look is your favorite?
