Celine, Proenza Schouler, Victoria Beckham all went a bit sporty on their recent runways. But this was no trip to the gym, no run on a treadmill. We’re talking high style, feminine and cute, with a sophisticated nod towards athletic detail and comfort chic. “Victoria Beckham proved, with her collection, that sporty can be very girly. Her body conscious dresses were comprised of sporty elements like polo collars and stripes,” says Miriam Sternoff, who, partnered with Micaela Beckwith, has styled for publications like Nylon, Teen Vogue and Vanity Fair.
Our two fashion experts point to stars like Kate Bosworth, Olivia Palermo and Diane Kruger who “always nail the sporty chic look. All three are extremely feminine but they add a sporty twist to girly ensembles with ease.”
But how can a woman grab some style from athletes without looking like she’s heading out for a morning jog? “Keep a nice juxtaposition when attempting this,” says Sternoff. “Try a cute baseball cap with a floral dress or throw on a blazer in a casual jersey fabric with your cute sweats. Pick items that are deliberately sporty and pair them with your more anonymous items like basic jeans and a feminine pair of flats.”
And for the office, Sternoff recommends, “a cute pair of heels with rubber treading on the bottom or a pencil skirt with mesh inserts, adds a sporty touch. Sporty chic is so on-trend right now that finding date or work appropriate attire is very easy.”
