The Sporty Chic
Recently, a man named Raymond Angat of DLSU Fashion 4.0 introduced us to the term Sporty Chic. To those who haven’t yet encountered this term, simply imagine tennis skirts, baseball shirts, baseball caps, varsity jackets, equestrian boots, soccer socks, running shoes, and the like. Incorporating these elements to your outfit successfully is the essence of sporty chic.
Who says you can’t have style and comfort at the same time? Some of the most comfortable clothing come from sports apparel. It has a range of items that you can use for any season. These pieces are also quite easy to find; whether you’re looking in the Department Store or in your favorite retail depot, you’ll definitely find a piece that you can add to your “sporty chic” ensemble.
Here are some guidelines on how to dress the part:
Shorts that actually look like skirts? You saw it first in a game of tennis! Pair your skorts with comfortable sneakers, throw on a sweater vest or a simple polo shirt, and you’re all set!
Don’t know what to wear with your basics? Prep it up with anything argyle! Try an argyle sweater over a nice tank, or wear argyle socks with your white sneakers for a winning look!
So you have this varsity jacket or a baseball shirt and you don’t know what to wear with it without looking too sporty. Try wearing it with girly pieces like suede shorts on sheer tights, or skater skirts; then, accessorize with colored oxfords or a nice fedora hat for an extra touch.
One of the innovative ways of achieving a sporty chic runner look is finding the right shoes to pair with your harem or slouchy joggers. You can pair `em with ankle-strapped heels for a classier touch, or go edgy with wedged sneakers.
Sporty can also be classy. Equestrian-esque wear is perfect for cold and rainy days. Just pair your white polos or sweaters with high boots or equestrian caps.
