Nothing beats running errands and then going to the gym, all while wearing the same sporty chic outfit. Athleisure has become one of the most popular and sought after looks to wear. Perhaps it is the effortless nature of this style that makes it so popular, or maybe it is the functionality that draws attention. Either way, once you master the sporty chic look, you’ll be the epitome of everyone’s street style goal. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid had better watch out because there’s going to be a new off-duty supermodel strutting her stuff around town! After reading this list of the four pieces you need to rock the sporty chic look, you’ll be the sportiest and most chic girl around.

The right kicks

You can’t be sporty if you’re not ready to jot around town. One of the key pieces to rock the sporty chic look is the perfect pair of sneakers. Depending on your own individual style, pick a color and brand that represents your sporty personality. From all white Adidas to black and white Nikes, pick a pair that goes with the majority of your wardrobe. If you want to dress sporty often, find a pair that is as functional as it is stylish. You’ll never want to take them off because they will be appropriate for any situation, whether you‘re grabbing coffee with a friend, going to the gym, or just running errands.

Black leggings

For any classic sporty look, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black leggings. Don’t feel like you have to keep it simple, though. There are tons of styles that feature feminine detailing like bows and whimsical patterns. There are also styles that have mesh paneling if you want to wear leggings, but also show a little skin.

Solid sweatshirt

Sweatshirts in neutral or solid colors are a sporty girl’s staple. Whether you choose a solid black sweatshirt or a blush pink sweatshirt, there are so many ways to wear them. Try layering a solid colored sweatshirt underneath a jean or leather jacket for an ultra-cool look. Layer your sweatshirts for that untouchable supermodel street style.

Hat or beanie

Since we are talking about sporty chic looks, wearing a hat or a beanie is a must. Throw your hair up into a ponytail, grab your favorite hat, and off you go! A hat or beanie allows you the freedom of not worrying about your hair, but also makes you look polished and put together. Some girls lean more toward wearing beanies with their hair down, while other girls prefer to wear a ball cap with their hair in a ponytail or a messy, loose bun. There is no wrong way to top off your look. For added chic, throw on a pair of sunnies while wearing your hat or beanie—you’ll shine like the sporty babe that you are!
