Sporty Spice

The sporty chic trend has been around for a few years now, but it's just now really catching my attention and making me want to rock it. Maybe it's because of the neon colors that have been paired with this trend...or...maybe I just want to try something new. I'm sure you noticed some of the sporty looks at the S/S '12 Fashion Shows, a few of those designers were Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, and Rag & Bone.

Note to everyone...let's avoid looking like we should be on a high fashion playing field with the Packers or like we're going scuba diving in the pacific. Don't get me wrong, I like the whole scuba inspired idea but it needs to comes in small doses. Here are a couple outfits I put together (and need to buy)...
Sporty Trend

1. Team Color- I still haven't braved the sweatpants in public thing, but this look is making me reconsider. I mean this has to be one of the most comfortable cottony polished looks. The bright yellow tank that is played up by the neon bow on the shoe, and I put a structured pink bag for some more color along with sophistication.

2. Monochromatic Team Player- Obviously this is the more minimalist version of the sporty trend. Keeping it all in the greys keeps it sleek, business appropriate, and versatile. The dress is a sweatshirt material so it's just as comfortable as the first look. You could easily take this look so many places by changing out the shoes and accessories or layering a blazer/denim shirt on top.

I love both of these looks and will be digging through my closet to see if I have anything that can contribute to this trend. Have you rocked this trend? I would love to see photos if so, you can add your links in the comments OR do it here.
