Trend Talk: Sporty Chic

As promised, I'm doing a part 2 of this series discussing spring trends.  So many of you expressed an interest in seeing ideas for sporty looks, so I compiled a few of my favorite ways to wear this style above featuring 2 key pieces - sneakers & sweatshirts.  I've found that the easiest ways to incorporate this trend into your every day look is to buy a couple sporty-inspired items & try pairing them in unexpected ways.  (See how I've styled sweatshirts here: with a pleated midi skirtlayered over chambray, with a leather pencil skirt and with coated denim.)  

When choosing a sweatshirt, search for a unique texture, print or embellishment - this will help keep the look fresh & modern.  As for sneakers, there are 4 distinct on-trend styles for the season: trainers, plimsoles, loafers & classic Converse.  I've compiled a comprehensive list of affordable options in every category below so you can find your perfect piece for less!
