How Do You Wear It? Fall 2012’s Athletic, Sporty Chic Trend

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?
