How Do You Wear It? Fall 2012′s Athletic, Sporty Chic Trend
By Claire

We’re continuing our How Do You Wear It? installment with Athletic Inspiration, showcasing how Fashion Bombshells rock Fall 2012′s Sporty Chic trend as spied on the runways of Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Balenciaga, and more.

Shelly from writes, “I always tend to keep a simple but yet comfortable look when it comes to being sporty. I threw on H&M’s leather skirt, a simple pullover sweater, Jeffrey Campbell lace ups, and a long over-sized coat.”

Amina submitted two looks, including a grey shoulder cut-out sweater over a black shirt, beanie, leggings, booties, and accessories from her EShop

And a jersey with camo combo, saying, “My style inspiration is definitely Rihanna. She is killing the game in her jerseys (Adore the Jeremy Scott one she wore for a performance) and camo green this year. I styled this look with a black and white jersey top.”

Jaki from Brooklyn writes, “It’s rare that I’m ever in flats, but I’m loving the sporty chic trend this season!”

Stanticka aka Ticka of the blog Spoonful of Sugar said, ” Head BLMGirl Leslie Young, posted in the BLMGirls FB page to submit pics to be included in your fun, new section. This is my submission. Thanks for your consideration!”

Efie of says, “ I am a BLM Girl and it was suggested that I submit my photo(s) to you for the Sporty/Athletic chic installment. I hope that my pic will be considered… I’m based in Atlanta, GA & I’m a lifestye blogger.”

Miss Rockwell of the blog Thrifty and Shameless (love that name!) submitted her friend Leslie. She said, “I was also told to mention that I was a BLM girl as well!” What’s that?

And lastly, Azaria from Milwaukee, Wisconsin says, “[Here's how I rock] sneaker wedges.”

Ok! Lots of interpretations of the trend here. Which submission is more your speed?
Next week, we’ll be rocking with a classic: animal instinct. Send your photos to

  31. Camilla says:

  32. Ticka says:

    I want to shout out ALL of my #BLMGirls for submitting their pics. For those of you who don’t know, BLM stands for Bloggers Like Me and WE are a group of very supportive women bloggers. If you’re a blogger, and a woman who would like to join a powerful networking group of bloggers like YOU, then you can find us here… .

  33. Karen says:

    This trend isn’t really my thing. However, number 1 would prob be my preference. All of the ladies get an A for effort. I believe style is personal to each person.

  34. Fashion du Jour aka Leslie Young says:

    Hey Claire! As I’ve told you before, I love what you do! BLM is Bloggers Like Me which is an online community of women across the US who blog about all sorts of topics (fashion, faith, relationships, food, education, gossip). Our goal is collaboration not competition and we encourage and uplift each other which is rare in the African American female community. God bless and keep on!

  35. You girls look great!!! All of you!!! Those wedge sneakers are still such a hot look. I’m inspired. Thanks again Claire!

  36. TDashfield says:

    Looks 1-3 are my faves. I’m not into the wedge sneaker look but those who can rock it, rock it!

  37. I like Jaki & Lynn’s styles. It’s def something I would wear. I sure would like to see what some of the negative commentors are wearing right now. Pretty sure you don’t look like u just stepped off the runway or out of Rachel Zoe’s closet. Why tear someone else down? Is ur self esteem really that low? There’s a way to state your opinion without trying to showboat or be cruel. Obviously some people still have a lot of growing up to do. BLM- Big girls now, Ladies with Manners. Shouts out to everyone brave & confident enough to send in your looks. You all look just fine. Shake the hater dust off and continue to Shine. -Naturally Stellar. P.S. yes I am a BLM girl and feel free to check out my blog :D

  38. EatStylePlay says:

    Enigma BLM Girls are (Blogger Like Me) it’s a network of Fashion Bloggers. I have a pin on my blog, if you click it will take you to the FB page we have as a meeting ground.

  39. Lynn says:

    All of the ladies… Express the way that they would rock this look! Individuality is KEY! I love the fact that all the looks are different; BLM Girls are a positive community that encourages & uplift one another!

  40. Rochelle says:

    I like everyone’s style! Everyone does THEM so well. It’s always a breath of fresh air to see ladies doing their own thing and not dressing like everyone else just because! Great job ladies!

  41. yusufswifee says:

    wow – okay! Lots to choose from. Going with #1

  42. Kitana says:

    #1 took it, must have been a lonely post for her because we were being punked by the remaining submissions. SMH!
