Sporty Spice

zK2ZXPMtil0xSportswear was a huge hit at the fall 2014 New York Fashion Week shows. Both Fendi and Miu Mui (and even Louis Vuitton) showed off their take on the athletic apparel. Along with, zip up jackets, windbreakers, and psychedelic orange sunglasses were our new favorite item: the skort. Even celebrities like super model Karolina Kurkova and socialite Olivia Palermo rocked the new trend. Channeling back to our tennis lesson days, the sporty item has become sophisticated, having a street style twist. With the high wasted layering, and the array of kinds on the market, anyone can pair a skort with a long-sleeved blouse and bootie, or even a sweater and Converse. The shorts in the back, skirt in the front look has been replicated by brands from Free People to Zara and are not only a runway look. Dressed up or down, they are an adorable and fashionable item to have in your wardrobe.
