Cute Sporty Outfits for School. You don’t have to be on a sports team to enjoy wearing athleticwear or athleisure. In fact, sporty looks can be worn by anyone, anywhere! Whether you like to go full-on sports girl with your attire or you like to incorporate a sporty piece here or there, in this article, you will find out just how to do it!
How to Dress Sporty for School Girls
Some of the benefits of wearing sporty clothing to school are as follows:
- You can be super comfortable while also looking cute.
- You will be prepared anything, whether an impromptu game of volleyball with your friends or dashing to your next class before the bell rings.
- You will be able to dress your outfit up or down as you need to.
- It’s a great way to show off some of your favorite brands!
Here are our top tips for dressing sporty for school:
- Mix in sporty pieces with your regular clothes. Instead of going to school in head-to-toe Lycra, pair a jersey sweater with a jean jacket or skinnies with sneakers. You don’t want to overdo it.
- Be mindful of your accessories. Pearl studs look super cute with crewneck sweaters but that crewneck sweater won’t look as cute with a glittery belt. Make sure that your overall outfit blends well together. (If you need examples of how to do this, we have 20 outfits below to show you!)
- Check your school’s dress code. Leggings might not be an option for you. If they are, great! If they aren’t, then be sure to swap out your leggings for skinnies, jeggings, or other pants that look similar to leggings.
- Don’t be afraid of bright colors. You can easily indulge your love for bright pinks or crisp reds by incorporating these colors into your sporty outfits.
- Opt for fitted pieces rather than loose or overly tight pieces. A cute, fitted sweater looks much better than a sweater two sizes too big for you (unless you like that look, in which case, have at it!)
