Marc Jacobs runway -- sporty chic

Work
it out

Fun fact: Your gym sweats can be easily transformed into wearable street couture this summer. Designers like Marc Jacobs showcased the “sporty chic” look, complete with easy separates, loose tops and cool sneakers — perfect for the “no fuss” sort of girl. Join us as we shop out this must-have trend, so you can create the perfect casual look for work or play.

Sporty for play

Let's be honest, we've all thrown on a basic comfy sweatshirt to run errands or attend a kids' soccer game on the weekends. Well, fortunately for you, that plain top can now be your style staple this season when paired with a few key pieces: a vibrant skirt, colorful sneakers and a statement bag.

You will instantly transform into a sports goddess if you try this outfit — we’re pretty sure your friends will a.) be jealous and b.) run to their closets to steal your look!

Sporty for play

Sporty for work

Who knew track pants could be acceptable for the office? When searching for the perfect pair of "fashionable athletic bottoms," opt for something straight leg and black, and pair with a white blouse for the ultimate streamlined look. It's best to incorporate only one sporty item into a work ensemble, so you don't look like a gym teacher — unless of course you are one!

Pair your athletic pants with a simple, high stiletto heel, a bold cuff and a classic chain bag, so you can easily transition from the office to happy hour with your girlfriends.
