Cool Girls Are Going Sporty This Summer—Here Are 6 Fresh Outfit Ideas – Yahoo Lifestyle

Read Time:8 Minute, 51 Second

With outside officially open, temperatures blazing, and the Olympics on and popping, it's no wonder all the fashion girls are embracing sportswear this summer. After all, there's arguably no other category besides swimwear that's more apt for the season. Whether it's dry-fit fabric or mesh, sportswear is literally made to be worn when it's hot. Realizing this and adopting sportswear into my summer wardrobe is definitely one of my most practical fashion decisions to date. Plus, the sporty aesthetic is getting a lot of love from brands, so our options continue to only get better.
I scoured the internet for the best sporty outfits and everything you'll need to get the look, from sunglasses to workout sets, tops, hats, and more. I found that the best sporty 'fits tend to incorporate one performance piece at a time, mixed with the fashion aesthetic of your choosing—be it Y2K, cottagecore, or a Hot Girl Summer uniform. You'll know you went overboard with the sportswear ratio if it looks like you could actually be on the way to the gym. Keep scrolling for all my picks. They're good.
This timeless combo has been a fashion-girl go-to for years now. I love how sneakers automatically transform any outfit into a casual one. When you don't know what the day will bring, this combo is particularly clutch. You can never go wrong with a breezy dress and some high-top sneakers.
Maison Margiela x Reebok Tabi Leather Sneakers ($359)
Like how Ariel wanted legs but the opposite… because we wanna be them, and they wanna be us.
Asics Fn1s Kiko Gel Nimbus Sneakers ($150)
This colorway is so trippy. Imagine it in motion.
Adidas Forum Low Sneakers ($90)
Simple, elegant, and timeless.
Nike Air Rift Breathe ($100)
There's something about split-toe sneakers that speaks my language. These are heat.
Teva Original Universal Sandal ($50)
Tevas pair so well with everything. I love to wear mine with tube socks and a minidress.
Boots and cutoff jean shorts have always been a thing, so why not try sporty shorts instead? Pairing these everyday Adidas shorts with showstopping boots and a designer bag is truly a lesson in how, when done right, high contrast can yield balance.
Iets Frans… Nylon Runner Short ($34)
The cut, the nylon fabric, the length—these are ideal.
Nike Jordan Essential Pocket Bike Shorts ($50)
These look like official Team USA gear.
Adidas Marimekko Shorts ($40)
This pattern is so fun yet simple enough to go with everything. I also love how the back of the shorts is cut slightly lower. Truly a considerate detail.
Toga x Speedo Technical Solotexr Shorts ($303)
Speedo hit the nail on the head with this combination of board shorts and Bermuda shorts.
Emilio Pucci Cropped Stretch Leggings ($360)
These Pucci capri leggings are too adorable. I'd wear them with a loose-fitting top and some kitten heels or sneakers.
Shop the matching Sports Bra ($270).
I know I'm not alone when I say I love a set. Not only is the convenience unmatched, but you also can benefit from wearing a set as separates. This Dior set is the perfect example—both pieces would look stunning pared down with denim or white linen.
Polo tank tops are all the rage this summer, and this set makes a strong case. Pair it with shades and a center part as she did here, and you're ready for the day and then tennis.
Nia Carbon Crop Tank ($48)
This could be the best workout set I've ever seen.
Shop the matching Ruched Shorts ($58).
Free People Zephyr Set ($118)
Both pieces in this set would be great additions to your summer wardrobe.
Native Youth Poplin Basketball Shorts ($29)
The menswear-inspired pinstripes allow this set to pass as more formal than it is, and for that, I stan.
Shop the matching Oversized Shirt ($35).
The Upside Zebra Spin Printed Shorts ($36)
IDK about you, but there's nothing like a cute set to motivate me to go to the gym.
Shop the matching Sports Bra ($40).
Free People Give It a Whirl Set ($108)
These come with spandex shorts as well.
Sporty tops are often overlooked by fashion people, but lately, brands have leaned into making the category look cooler. I'm waiting for jerseys to truly blow up in particular. They are the GOAT in the summer and pack a strong punch stylistically, too.
I have been an advocate of sports bras as tops for many years now. Notice how I paired mine with a satin button-down and lots of gold jewelry to distract you from the fact that I am just wearing a sports bra.
Nike Layered Mesh Dri-FIT Tank ($70)
Sportswear brands are starting to take cues from capital "F" fashion, and I love it here.
Adidas Logo Crop Top ($24)
I swear the Spice Girls used to wear these Adidas spaghetti-strap tops.
Girlfriend Collective Paloma Bra ($38)
Sports bras are so clutch in the summer—the support is unmatched. This one is cut longer than most, so it can also pass for a crop top.
Adidas Yoga Cropped Top ($36)
This one reminds me of a surf rashguard. I love the topstitch.
ACNE Studios Basketball Jersey Tank Top ($230)
You could wear this as a dress, a cover-up, or a baggy tee.
The sporty aesthetic has even taken to the accessory world, which makes sense because performancewear is a superior experience in all categories. Sunglasses that look like they could belong to a cyclist are a particular favorite of mine. Maybe it's because they make you look so badass.
Prada Re-Nylon Logo Bucket Hat ($495)
Prada me.
G-Shock GM6900SG-9 Watch ($230)
Pretty much indestructible, this watch is both fly and practical.
Vans Surfside Sunglasses ($15)
These look hard-core and are a dream for people watching.
Bala 1 Pound Bangles ($49)
Once you start wearing these bangle weights, you'll want to wear them everywhere.
American Needle Parks Department Baseball Hat ($38)
This color palette remains elite.
I know you didn't expect to see skirts on this list, but hear me out. It feels like the ubiquity of the tennis-skirt trend made way for more sporty skirts this season. This one takes me back to the early 2000s. It reminds me of TLC's iconic FanMail era, when this adjustable skirt technology was probably brand-new.
Eleven by Venus Williams Tulip Tennis Skort ($84)
We can always count on the Williams sisters to make performancewear look good.
Nike Sportswear Swoosh Skirt ($55)
This would look great with all your bodysuits.
Zara x Kappa Mini Skirt ($36)
This skirt is straight from an episode of The Jetsons.
Free People Schooling You Shorts ($78)
This flouncy skirt reminds me of figure-skating outfits I used to gawk over as a kid.
Stradivarius Towelling Mini Skort ($21)
Looking like an Easter egg in the best way.
Shop the matching Polo Shirt ($27).
