Summer is going to be here before we know it – and with it comes new trends to try on. Our favorite? Sporty chic looks with touches of red, white and blue. And don’t worry – you don’t need to be an athlete to rock them!
Sporty Chic Stripes
Taking a cue from sports uniforms of the past, lots of this summer’s styles are featuring retro athletic details like taping up the sides. These give a sporty chic update to otherwise routine outfits. We love seeing this on everything from dresses and rompers to denim and high tops. Doesn’t this romper look like it would go perfectly with a pair of roller skates and tube socks?
It’s a (Color)Block Party
You don’t wanna miss out on this party – color blocking is essential! Stick with an Americana color scheme of red, white and blue or go a little more retro with yellow and navy! V-shaped color blocking, as pictured above, will make an oversized fit more flattering. Style it with sporty chic taped jeans and fresh white sneakers for a look that’s sure to win first place.
And color blocking trend isn’t limited to solid colors. We’re also loving it with patterns like the checkers on this cute cropped tank!
Track Pant Triumph
Let’s talk about track pants. This casual version of the sportswear trend may feel like the hardest to pull off, but track pants have proven themselves a staple of any sporty chic closet. When in doubt, keep it simple by pairing them with a crop top! From wide-legged to tapered, the track pant comes in lots of shapes and sizes, so having more than one pair is A-okay.
The ball is in your court, so if you’re feeling inspired to let your athletic side shine, head over to your local Buffalo Exchange to shop for similar styles. We’re also buying for summer and the best of all seasons, so be sure to bring in your closet cleanout. You could earn cash or trade to put towards your athletic-inspired summer wardrobe. Talk about a home run!
