Game On!!!

Ok, I hate sports! There I said it. This hate comes form years of being forced by brothers and cousins to play cricket and football {Somehow, I was always that one extra person they needed to complete their team. Go figure!} Basically, I am not a sports person. Don’t get me wrong, I love my aerobics and swimming {and game of chess?} but when it comes to watching or playing a game of sport; where grown men are chasing/ hitting a ball, that is something I avoid at all costs.
Lucky for me, one does not really need to be a follower or believer of all things sports to enjoy fashion ‘IT’ trend. Know as ‘Sporty Chic’, it’s the perfect way to mix-up cool and stylish sports/gym pieces with everyday items. But, by no means can you jog into a 10am meeting in a pair of sweaty gym shorts. Au contraire! To wear this look outside the gym and stadium one needs to style it appropriately.Try pairing a classic pencil skirt with a racerback tank and hi-top trainer wedges. Or capri sweatpants with bomber jacket and a trendy satchel. A fine balance between 'sporty' items everyday basic pieces is the key to styling this trend. Ideally, for those who seek comfort without letting go of their stylish side, this trend is your new best friend.
 Note To Self:On the pretext 'Sporty Chic', DO NOT wear your baggy tee and track pants to weekend brunch.
