It’s time for super girly fashion to move over and take a backseat to this latest trend, fresh and flirty sporty clothing. This year’s sportswear trend is far from the plain old t-shirt and running shorts you may wear to the gym. At the 2013 S/S runway shows we saw a slew of sports inspired looks. From tennis themed outfits to chic and sweet golf prep ensembles, we are loving the fun and polished nature of this trend. One of our favorite things about this trend is that its super flattering with its sleek lines and slimming fabrics.

For a super youthful and chic look pair a jersey fabric tank top with a flirty tennis inspired pleated skirt. This look is ultra-feminine and fun, while still maintaining a polished look. For a funkier take on this trend we suggest pairing a leather skirt with a trendy hoodie. This look is edgy and chic and ties in with the sporty style. As far as accessories go we recommend super girly pieces like a pearl necklace or even a cute set of bangles. This will help to anchor the somewhat masculine vibe this trend can sometimes have.

Try The Trend Tips

The sporty chic style is one that we highly you try this year and to help you look your best in this style here are a few key tips to keep in mind.

At times sportswear pieces can have a simple silhouette which means that they can handle bold colors without looking too busy. So look for some of your sportswear pieces in fun colors like pastels or neon.

Look for tunics or shirts that have a drop waist line, this will make the most of the masculine vibe of this trend if you want to go for the very in androgynous look.
