Sportswear as Everyday Wear

February 8, 2012

Working in the running industry, you’re bound to acquire a closet full of sports clothes.
Since I work in an office, I have to dress more on the business causal side, so those piles of sports wear items don’t see the work week very often. This past weekend all I wanted to wear was comfy sports clothes, but not look like a college bum or Sporty Spice. I think mixing sports wear with your everyday wear is often overlooked…so my new goal is to incorporate both pieces together more often. 
Pairing any sporty tee or long sleeve under a jacket instantly makes the outfit look less athletic. Running shoes don’t always have to be worn with sweat pants…dark jeans flatter them as well! Adding my Nike GPS Sportswatch was a no brainier…I’m in love with the chunky, sleek look of it and how it goes surprisingly well with a lot of pieces. I donned a bit of vintage with my handmade key necklace and called it good. 

Jacket: Forever21 from Rock, Paper, Scissors
Long Sleeve: Icebreaker
Necklace: Handmade
Jeans: !IT Jeans
Do you wear your sports clothes out and about…
or are they just reserved for bumming around the house and exercising?

    Oh Kate I love this look! The T is super cool and I love blue & brown together 🙂 I used to wear hiking boots & hoodies with dresses all the time. Cool look!

    Kate if you are thinking of showing how to wear the stuff you do with Gazelle you totally should!!!! This is brilliant. I have loved what Pushups to Polish does and I think it fits you so well. You are the perfect fit for showing workout to street. Brilliant Brilliant lady!

    I love it! Honestly, I’m so un-fashionable that I probably wouldn’t even notice that any of it was sports wear! It looks adorable!

    So fun! While I think you could rock the Sporty Spice 😉 look this is really cool! And much more creative and fashionable than how I used to wear my athletic gear in high school…
