How to Ace the Latest Sporty Chic Style Trend
Whether you’re on the go, catching up with friends or hitting the social scene, the latest style trend is casual, comfortable and oh-so-sleek. Getting the sporty chic look right might look simple, but if done wrong, this fashion-do can become a fashion-don’t very quickly.
Luckily, this no-fuss style trend is practical and nearly effortless when you know how to get it right. Harmony is key. Once you learn how to balance sporty with chic, you’ll be striking a pose in no time.
Here are four essential elements that can help you conquer the sporty chic style.
1) Get Sneakered
Most neutral, all-black and classic outfits can instantly get a boost from stylish sneakers. Pair down a classic skinny chino (for men) or pencil skirt and a silky blouse (women) with sporty shoes. If the colour of your clothes are uniform in black, grey, beige, soft pinks or white you can spice up the look with bold footwear.
2) Trendy Tape
Side-taping is one of the quintessential features of sportswear. To tone down the sportiness of the typical jogger attire, grab a pair of heels and skinny black jeggings. Make sure you spruce up taped jackets with bold statement jewellery. Men can ramp up the chic level even further with a collared shirt, skinny tie and dapper sneakers.
3) Sleek Sweater
Bold jackets with typography has become a style trend in itself. Women can dress up the most comfortable sweater with a silky scarf, hot shoes and jeggings. Thankfully winter is here, which means men can also make the most of this style trend. Men can combine a sporty sweater or hoodie, a leather jacket, their favourite sneakers and skinny jeans to get the look right.
4) Spotlight on Sporty Tops
Dress up a t-shirt with a stylish blazer or jacket, but keep it toned down by choosing cotton or linen slacks. Alternatively, balance your sporty chic outfit with jewellery or an up-do for an instant update. Men can pair their favourite tee with a classic blazer or chino and leather sneakers. With the dressed-up tee, men and women can head to the golf club before hitting the social scene in the latest style trend.
5) Maximise Your Mini Dress
Even the most sporty of dresses can get a stylish revive with stockings, comfy shoes or even heels. Remember to keep warm with a leather jacket and a warming scarf. Match your dress to your shoes for an understated but sleek look, or go bold with sparkling footwear.
