Restyle Day 24 - Athletic

Luxe sports gear is a big trend at the moment and has been for a while. Every second Instagram snap seems to be of someone’s fancy Nikes or luxury gym wear. While I love the comfort athletic clothing allows for, I haven’t really worked the sporty trend into my wardrobe… until now!

When I set out searching for my Restyle prompts, top of my list was a vintage sports jersey to use for the Athletic day. I was thrilled to find this baseball jersey at Australian Red Cross Hamilton Hill. It’s not actually vintage (oh the shame) but an out-dated version of the Morley Eagles baseball uniform. I don’t really care, the thin red stripes and text font are retro enough for me!

I’m going for a ‘Bridgette Bardot goes to Fenway’ kind of look, tight jeans, un-done beehive, my Eagles jersey and some killer shades (of course!). Unless I’m actually being athletic (i.e playing sport) this is about athletic as I want my style to get.

  1. This is a great look! Baseball jerseys need some love, too. While not necessarily "vintage", the pinstripes are a classic look for many baseball uniforms. They're also comfy and could be worn anywhere. Thanks for sharing your tips on how to easily incorporate sportswear into anyone's wardrobe!
