Get Physical This Sporty Summer

Let’s get physical! Dig out your dad’s old football tops and trainers and get ready to look sporty this summer.

The sporty summer trend has been hitting social media by storm, thanks to trendsetter Zendaya promoting her new tennis-themed film ‘Challengers’ with sporty looks, such as a custom Loewe deep-V neckline dress with a black trim, matched with custom Loewe white pumps with a tennis ball feature. The sporty look for everyday wear has been seen previously on celebrities such as Sporty Spice in the 90s, and now the trend has resurfaced with a twist!

Pleated mini skirts inspired by sportswear such as tennis and cricket have been seen frequently on social media and TikTok, with people dressing them up with heels, oversized shirts and chunky jewellery, or going for a more casual look by pairing them with trainers and a t-shirt. Mini skirts have also been seen recently on the catwalk by Miu Miu. You can elevate the usually simple look of a plain pleated skirt with multiple accessories such as a statement handbag or bright-coloured shoes just to add some extra chic to your outfit.

Football tops and jerseys are also hot for styling right now, as seen worn as far as Coachella. It’s quite on trend to wear a football top with a short skirt and heels or cowboy boots. However, some people enjoy styling their jerseys with oversized jeans for a more street-style approach, like this Coachella look seen on influencer @aaashleyk’s Instagram page.

The colour palette for the sporty summer trend has been noted to be white, red, blues, greens and deep yellow, derived from the popular colour themes of many sports team jerseys. Popular brands that people have been wearing for this trend include the typical sportswear brands such as Adidas, Nike and Kappa, and also individual sports team jerseys and country jerseys and t-shirts such as Brazil and Italy.
