Gone are the days when you would get stared at in the streets for wearing sportswear in public. Not good stares either but stares of “what is she wearing, really?”, and no one likes those kinds of stares.Despite this, after researching the trends of summer 2013, it’s becoming apparent that sportswear really is making a comeback in a big way and because of this I thought I’d show you how to wear this trend, minus the awkward stares.
So here we go! let’s start with me. I’m not usually one for the sport styled clothing but for £6 in Primark can you really go wrong with this oversized baseball jersey? it’s made from airtex so is perfect for summer, and i’m not going to lie since I purchased it I’ve had a pretty hard time getting out of it as It’s probably the most comfortable piece of clothing I own.
However, there are quite a few ways to own this trend and I’ve chosen a couple staple items of clothing that will aid you on your way to being a sporty fashionista.
This Topshop airtex tee is much like the one I bought from Primark, and fits in perfectly with this trend. Due to these tops being quite long, I’ve taken advantage of this and paired it with some risky wet look leggings. I know what you’re thinking.. and if you’re anything like me, wet look leggings probably aren’t the best idea if you have thighs and a booty but if you are pairing them with a longer top you can definitely pull them off as I have in the pictures above! Work boots work well to break up the outfit and make it less sporty and the acid wash backpack makes a nice change to a normal handbag as well as giving it a different twist.
I’m aware these trainers are pricey but they are so versatile and are perfect for trying out this summer trend. The plain black leggings and simple white vest work well if you want to accessorize the outfit with a bold denim jacket and edgy embellished beanie like those above. I wear outfits like this quite regularly but if you can’t afford shoes like this, don’t worry cause I can’t either.. They have a pair on ASOS that are a fifth of the price and look the exact same, minus the infamous Nike tick. If you are interested, here they are!
Now if you are looking at this post, and you’re thinking what the hell are these outfits I’ve put together then never fear, I’ve created another outfit that isn’t quite as sporty but still maintains some of this trend for you to try out.
Now I have to say, that when these wedge trainers first started appearing in shops I did have to laugh a bit cause they looked kind of ridiculous. However, much like a lot of girls that I’ve seen walking around in these, they have grown on me massively and I now really want a pair to call my own. Paired with a graphic or logo t-shirt and some loose boyfriend jeans they really do look good. This is the minimalist version of the sporty trend and so you can afford to accessorize a little bit more with this outfit, for this reason I have chosen to include a skull embellished clutch bag and a spiked ear chain.
What do you guys think?
