Sporty Chic

plus size athleisure outfit idea

Despite loving the sporty look that is trending this season, initially, I felt like it just wasn’t for me.  I just couldn’t see myself rocking a varsity jacket (with letters on it), sweatpants, or anything like that.  Well, that was until I found this fabulous faux leather varsity jacket at Macy’s.  I spotted it months ago and loved it, but decided to pass.  However, when I saw it again (and for 75% off), I took it as a sign that it should come home with me.

To make this jacket fit with my personal style, I paired it with my favorite pair of faux leather leggings, printed pumps and my favorite bag for some quick shopping.  (You all are probably sick of seeing this bag, but I absolutely love it. It’s my everyday bag.) If you’re hesitant, like I was, about including this, or any other, trend into your wardrobe, I suggest starting off small.  The entire outfit doesn’t have to include pieces from a particular trend.  You could simply do one trendy piece and keep everything else simple like I’ve done here.

Are you rocking the sporty look this season? If so, tell me how in the comments below.
