Spring 2012 Trend: The Athlete

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but today’s post was inspired by the Superbowl. Although I only paid attention during commercials, I had an idea of what was going on…and all I could think of was Spring ’12.

Ever wish you could turn your track pants into a stylish outfit? I still wouldn’t recommend trying that but you are in luck for Spring.  With windbreaker jackets, side striped pants and mesh seen on the runways last September, it’s looking like the athlete is in for Spring 2012. However, the designers elevated these items to look like high quality fashion-forward pieces. So please don’t leave your house in work out clothes, unless of course you’re going to the gym.

Here’s a look at some of the sports-inspired looks for Spring ’12…

  1. Absolutely!!

  2. I’ll do my very own version of this! This is such a unique get-up to do on spring. I will ask my fashion-addict friends opinion about this and see what we can come up with (excited!)
    I have seen a Korean fashion style of this one before but its not for spring season.

  3. No, I’m not a fan! I’ll be going the retro-ultra fem way instead. Definitely a great look for someone who can pull it off and who loves a sporty style!

What Do You Think?
