If you read my fashion fix last week, it should come as no surprise that I’m obsessing over the sport inspirations in the market right now. From high to low fashion, it seems like everyone is dipping their toe in this ultra-cool trend– which is great for us, meaning there is a wide selection at varied price points. I put together a collection of my picks for the sport trend, all of which fall under $45. And for those of you looking (I’m looking at you, Ali), there is some J. Crew and Gap in there, all at stellar prices.
But first, some of you may be wondering what constitutes an item to be considered “sport” and how to go about wearing it. Not that I’m an expert by any means, but I classify items as sport by their design details. Some easy sport details including piping (on pants, hats, sleeves), stripes and color blocks, raglan sleeves, athletic silhouettes (track pants, baseball jackets), and color. I will say that if you’re not into taking too many risks, some styles are easier to wear than others. Piped chinos, like the adorable pair from Gap below, are a wearable style as your basic chino pant with that extra piped detailing. Colorblocks or a striped raglan are also easy ways to incorporate the trend. If all else fails, throw on some cool sneakers and a baseball cap and you’re good to go!
What’s your favorite sport piece? Are you going to take this trend for a spin?
Until next time–
