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.
