Just for Sport

Miroslava Duma sporty

Fashion has been taking a sporty spin since last fall and it’s a trend that’s fun, comfy, and a bit tongue-in-cheek. Mixing stylish pieces with items usually saved for track and field can’t be taken too seriously and is a great counterpart to dressy pieces. I’ve collected some great shots this week, that all have a decided athletic touch.

Not Dressed as Lamb

Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb

I adore Catherine’s blog, Not Dressed As Lamb for her spirit, style and masterful combinations. Her sporty Converse sneakers with neon laces, add a playful note to her already great outfit. See outfit details here and be sure to see what she’s wearing today too. She’s just wonderful.

TNT of FashionTNT, created her own sporty pants by adding DIY white panels to black pants and pairing them with a leather jacket and strappy heels. Brilliant and right on trend.

Isabel Marant spring 2012 runway collection

If you haven’t seen it already, check out the full sporty glam collection at Isabel Marant Spring 2012, as it walked the runway last fall. Her collections are one of the current barometers of cool-girl chic and can be counted on to set off a new trend each season (next up: urban cowgirl for Fall 2012).

This is one of my favorite pictures. Normally, you’d see this all black mini-skirt outfit with stilettos or even cute flats. She took it to a whole other level of cool and nonchalance, by wearing it with her colorfully-laced Nike shoes.

Hope these pictures inspire a new combo from your closet!
